Forgot to mention water the. I'd just drain it. Pull the anode out (1-1/16" socket) and drain it. Put the valves in winterizing mode before sanitizing.

I only sanitize once in the spring and I'm still breathing!!

Perfect - thank you! Auto correct is great - when it fixes what you needed fixed!!!

I do have another question - our awning came with a little bag containing a webbed strap several feet long with a plastic piece at one end. I asked about it during our PDI & was told it wasn't a necessary thing to have. He said with the power awning, it wouldn't ever be used & we could throw it away. I wasn't so sure about that so I kept it. Any idea what it would be used for or if we do indeed just toss it?

On manual awnings the strap is what you'd use to pull it open with. My power awning did not come with the strap. Maybe you can find another use for it.

That's what the dealer said. I just wanted to confirm with those of you who know! Thank you for your help.

Keep it....Its what you use if you ever need to manually retract the awning. Page 3 of your 9100 manual.

Thank you Mr. Havercamp. I have an installation manual for the awning but no Operating Instructions. Perhaps I can find it online!

Stabilizer Jack Replacement

While trying to turn around on a dead-end road, our son hit something that bent one of the stabilizer jacks on our 2504s. It might be able to be used but it's pretty much trashed. I found a couple BAL stabilizers - I do try to by USA made when possible - but is that the brand I should go with? Is there anything in particular I should be sure to look for? Two that I'm looking at on Amazon are the 24002C & the 24028 LoPro. Also, several reviewers said they get their campers pretty level using boards or whatever & then use the BAL stabilizers to complete the leveling. I didn't think they were to be used to do that. Thoughts? Maybe I missed a step in our PDI! Thanks for the help!

Can't speak to the quality of the BAL jacks, as I don't have any, although I do have a BAL Hide-a-spare and BAL X-chocks that I'm happy with.

With respect to leveling: Do not attempt to level the TT with the stabilizer jacks. There's a reason they are called stabilizer jacks and not leveling jacks. They aren't built to take the full weight of the TT. Level it with wood planks or the yellow/orange squares, then stabilize with the jacks. You might want to get some BAL X-chocks for between the tires.
