5. Replace the el cheapo entry door light with a black LED motion light (from Starlights). Very cool. It matches all the other black items on the 24R.
I'm liking this idea. I have a long list myself this week to do. Install a power jack on the front. Put a new foot and connections on the awning. Replace some stabilizer's. Figure out how my two fresh water tanks are connected. Plumb connections for my new generator that came in today. Put a new pigtail on the trailer. I'm sure I'll find some more to do.

BC, you don't back up with a tow vehicle. You back up after you have robed the toad. The rear camera is useless at night. DE is marker and she is not good at this chore. I usually get out twice or so when backing. A rear camera that works at night would help. My $17,500 Honda Fit has one.

I have Hellwig and Sumos. When I added Hd Bilsteins in rear, only negligible help and and made ride noticeably less smooth. I would not add Bilsteins to Sumos
Sumos do a great job improving the ride.

Thanks

The front Sumos have one bolt at the top. The rear Sumos slide in. The rear Sumos do not have volts or screws and do not attach to the spring.

Wondering; when you say the Sumos do "a great job improving the ride" can you just give a before after comparison, so I know what that stand alone brings. Thanks

Based on his description of no screws, etc., I think he's got the basic bump stops - product number SSR-338-47. The more expensive replacement appears to include a U-bolt connection to the axle.

That's what I was thinking as well but would like to know what the ride difference is between the bump stops and the more expensive bolt on ones.
