Correct. The fuel area can be covered in any way.

I hear you. It's almost getting to be a stereotype that the customer knows more than the dealer. With the vast info available on the net these days it takes an actual enthusiast salesman to keep up with the ins and outs of each model. Sadly, these guys are few and far between. You really have to be your own advocate... I was lucky enough to have a very educated guy that could keep up with my questions during my build. One reason I would recommend my dealer to ANYONE...

IMHO! I would listen to Bulletbob before ANY dealer. He's in the industry and very familiar how the XLR unit is built and what you can and can't do. Just saying take his advice and all will be fine. Camp On my forum friends!

On the fuel issue, I have driven between the West Coast to the
East coast many time's, at times once a week turn around running
as a team driver.

Worst states for fuel mileage is Nebraska, Kansas, Wyoming,
South Dakota headed west, great fuel mileage headed east.
Also people do not realize that you are going up hill either
direction till you pass over the great divide, might not seem
like it but you are.

Another tidbit is that I 94 is the shortest distance between
Between Chicago and Billings, not I 90.

If you use US 212 Between the Little Big Horn and
Bel Fourche SD you can cut 90 or more miles off I 90. The
only problem with this highway is that gas stations are
far and few between and it is a 2 lane highway, lots of
trucks at times.

Well, that goes without saying. He's the plant manager at XLR and has helped me out a ton while mine has been on order. However, he can't possibly answer all the questions a new or potential owner might have during the buying and ordering process. That's why some dealers really need to learn their product better. Kind of like, when buying a Ford truck you shouldn't have to contact the CEO of Ford to get accurate info. I sure am glad he's here though for the times when a dealer falls short. The fact that he's doing it voluntarily on his own time speaks volumes to the man's character and how strongly he feels about his brand's reputation.

2nd make sure you can tighten screws behind bushing to 90ft lb - I also had my attachments set to far up on frame - even though the directions say set at 27.5 from front of attachment it's more like 29.5 To front of attachment if this is wrong you can't get the WD hitch to move the weight to your front axle on your TV -

Ok so we took my dads TV a ecoboost f150 1/2 ton HD loaded w tow package rated to 12k towing at first I thought we where gonna have a very long ride home because the WD hitch was not correctly installed - the front truck axle where floating all over the place --- stupid __ finally found a place big enough to readjust - moved ball up 2 on receiver moved fram attachments back tighten to 95ft lbs ---- can I say HUGE difference

I'll post pics on Anderson hitch
Play Harder,
I hope your continued travels home are uneventful. Maybe even a tail wind to help with the MPG...

But I am curious if you can post up some comments and possibly some pictures of the Andersen hitch. I'm guessing you have over a 1,000 miles experience now. My fingers are crossed that it's working like you thought it would...

Thank you for all the shared information you have supplied your trip to/from RVW. I know many people have enjoyed this post...

The ductwork for the furnace goes through the cabin, and not under the floor. Furnace is under fridge and tees from there. Runs under water heater and front sink. Then the other way it goes through cabinets and under bath sink to back. There is no heat in the underbelly, just insulation if you have extreme package. Also with that package you have heated holding tanks just to keep liquid in tanks from freezing. The 12 volt heat pads for tanks do not provide any heat for anything else, just tanks. The water lines do run in the underbelly though and can freeze in extreme weather for a period of time.
