At the Search (top right) type in: Blue light. Many threads on this subject from people who don't like the blue refrigerator light and includes Dometic contact information.. Last I knew I think Dometic was replacing these with a white light for free due to complaints.
I happen to like the blue light so I haven't made a call..

There is one problem though. My wife is having a fit over the blue led lights in the fridge! She already had me take the lights out. I really don't disagree with her. Blue light makes food look gross! Anybody have the same problem? Anybody got a solution?

On another subject, I'm looking forward to playing with the Reese Revolution pin box. I'm pulling with a Chevy 2500HD extended cab w an 8' bed. Moving the pivot point back seems interesting. I've got a tool box in the bed and things are a little close.

Any tips are appreciated.

I'm enjoying the site, with all the tips and advice.

Thanks in advance
Larry
Ain't it funny how people have so many views and opinions on different things! My wife loves the blue LEDs; I don't really care one way or another. I also have an 8' bed but see no reason to activate the Reese. Isn't this forum great?!?

It is great! Different people, different lifestyles but common ground in that we all love RVing.

I'm taking the camper away this weekend for the first trip. I'm going to leave the reese in the standard configuration and see how it goes. Next trip I'll change it and then decide. I am thinking about activating the Reese even though I have an 8" bed because of two things. 1) I have a big toolbox in my bed and 2) the terrain where I live is mountainous. I have to turn the RV around to get it parked and the terrain makes it really easy to get the truck bed or the toolbox in contact with the camper. Moving the pivot back may really help. We'll see.

My tool box is kind of big but it is well out of the way.
I can pack my B&S generator behind it with no clearance problems.
