When you do the channel search, be sure you're set to "cable" and not "antennae". Also, be sure you are connected to the "cable" input on the exterior, and not the "satellite" input (on our unit, they are side-by-side).

When scanning for cable channels turn the antenna booster(amplifier) off, also

Slid lock

I didn't receive a slid lock with the Mini Lite. I was watching a video on what to do IF there is a slide motor failure. The slide lock is a must when the motors are disengaged. Without a slide lock, or a piece of 2X4 to block the slid it can move in and out as you drive. I hope I never have to worry about having a slide lock! I always hold my breath when moving the slide in or out. 🙀

I didn't get a slide lock. I figure if I ever need one, I have one of these in the truck:

The design of the one you have for your truck looks lots better than the actual slide lock we got with our camper. It seems it would be much easier to use a clamping mechanism instead of trying to screw our slide lock tight enough to hold! It does seem odd that they include them in some mini-lites but not others.

On the one in the pic for my truck, you ratchet it out to get close, then you twist it to screw it tight.

I am thinking of installing a Progressive EMS LCHW30 in my 2017 Mini Lite 2104S. Would there be enough room near the fuse panel to do this? Anyone know where I can get a wiring diagram for this TT?

They don't make wiring diagrams; sorry.

You need to post the MODEL of your Mini Lite if you want a decent answer on whether there's room or not.

New mods in our microlite 21DS 2015

[QUOTE=SkipBest;781671]Thanks to all of the M&M Lites for posting greetings. Here are a few thoughts I have that MAY start some discussion...

Nancy and I are just about as new as possible to M Lites. We are waiting for our first Lite to be delivered. Needless to say we are excited, maybe I am more excited than Nancy, and value any information we can hear about your M Lite experiences.

A little about you...
A little about us... Nancy still is working and looking to retire at the end of June. I am a retired "shop" teacher. After 35 years of teaching, SHOP morphed into Technology Education. We live in West Chester PA just west of Phila. We are waiting on a 2015 Mini Lite 2503S and tow with a Chevy 3500 Van. We are planning on traveling with our new M Lite and are looking at the north east for this summer. Nancy wants to hike up Mt Washington NH. It looks like there are a lot of nice campgrounds in that area.
We have been boaters for many years so land cruising will be interesting to say the least.

Topic questions:
In your M Lite travel...
Do you travel with bikes? Where do you store them? Do you use a rack?
Have you made any modifications to your M Lite?
IF you have a slide does it function alright?
If you camp at one place where are you located?
If you use your M Lite to travel where is your favorite spot... so far?

Nancy has "interior" questions...
What sheets do you use? Camping world short queens?
Here is one, where do you put your trash can?
Have you added any towel racks?
Any tricks for storing things in cabinets during travel?

Well there are a few thoughts to start things off... What is on your mind?

Skip and Nancy Best[/QUOTE

We live in MA. , owned a pop up for 14 years. We purchased the trailer new and had a wonderful 17 day trip to MI. In June. We have always travelled with small in mind.
Our mods consist of a spice rack my DH put over the fridge. It has a bar across to hold the spices in, however he needs to add and extra bar as they pop out. One small jar go coughs between the slide out and wall and caused a tear in the slide out material. Luckily, it is inside and not affected by the weather. Go figure huh?
We also hung swivel lights over the bed for reading.
We purchased a few door latch hooks( the kind that hold the storage Doors open but got Metal ones), we turned them vertically and we use them to hang our clothes on at night. They just flip up after and are out of the way.
We use simple plastic baskets in our "pantry" over the dinette...just measure to make sure the doors will close. We would like to remove the panels in between to allow for more access. I pot rolls of paper towels or tissue boxes in between to keep things from sliding.
I bought a netted shower pocket hanger which hangs on the shower curtain to hold our soaps and shampoos. It drys quickly.
Hung towel bar on inside of br door and put up fancy coat type hooks for our towels in br and kitchen.
We keep a copy of medical records in fridge freezer in case of emergency while camping.
I purchased Rv sheets 2 sets, they are shorter than regular sheets but the bottom of the flat sheet is fitted to prevent our feet from undoing the top sheet. You need to measure before ordering.
I use a basket to bring out what we need for our meals..we eat and cook outdoors.
We use a fishing tackle box for our utensils. Because we are in and out so much, this saves time and space and keeps everything clean.
We have an attachment for our paper towels, trash, cooking utensils and place for spices we put onto the end of picnic table. Inside we use a plastic grocery bag hanging on the door. Pops up hamper in side as well.

We have towel for just the camper, there is a site on Pinterest that shows how to roll them to save on space. Pinterest shows a Lot of camping hacks . Check it out.
Hope this helps.
