Our friends have a keystone, to use the manual slide crank they would need to punch a hole in the skirting next to their steps. We haven't received our rockwood yet so I cannot tell you if the same holds true for us.

Man, that just does not sound right. That hole (if needed) should already be there. This is what it should look like.

This manual extension stub works the Opposite Side Slide. Look for the hole in the skirt opposite the slide you want to crank in or out.

Very true, but only part of the story. If you are using the tank heaters, there is a pretty good chance you are also using the furnace quite a bit, especially in a poorly insulated ultralite. In my case I have 4 tanks (2grey, 1 black and 1 fresh), so 21.6 amps plus the furnace = getting up in the middle of the night and starting the generator!

How do I know this? Well....................
