You mean the plastic cover won't fit between your gas tanks and spring bar jack? Did you have to move the propane tank mount closer to the tongue jack?

Obviously, a black soft cover should work. I have one in white from the old camper that came from CW. They come in 20# and 30# sizes.

Not sure you pulled with it yet, but let us know if its a good as people claim. The price is the only drawback, plus maybe the weight. I would love to have either this one, or the blue ox. I've looked at one, its the design clever?

Have you done a full lock turn going forward to see if the new box hits your bumper? Mine hit the factory rack... had to cut the rack down.... but it will come off as soon as I get the tongue box I've ordered from eTrailer... its a DeeZee DZ91717... they shipped me the DZ9171P... I'm going to have to paint it black.... which isn't the best... thought about before mounting it (after checking fit), getting it Rhinoliner(ed) first. How cool would it be to have the propane tanks Rhino'd too?

Why would DeeZee use almost the same part number, when they didn't have to. The boxes are entirely different. Now I have to make sure when UPS drops off the new one, someone is here to hand him the return. My closest USP store is over 25 miles away.

Another thing.... every ground ship UPS item I have received lately, looks like they were run over by a train! Anyone else seen this? I hope not, but probably the aluminum box will probably be damaged.

I've been wondering about these too BG, please let us know if they noticeably cut down the movement.

I don't scare easy, but that seems like a scary amount of current going through a camper. Then again, I shoved a 4,000W generator in a few inches under where my head sleeps.

Can someone please tell me where I can buy a 4 gang switch identical to the one in the garage of a 29HFS?

I want to replace front switch (3 gang) to add LED's to steps.

Please help.

The 400amp fuss is at 12 volt DC. One battery is capable of considerably more for an instant.

The starter in your car draws around 250 amps.

Any of you know where I can find the tool for this head? I hate it when they use these things instead of a screw. Trying to remove the panel in the storage area so I can track my TV cables. Bedroom and garage won't pick up any signals on antenna but living room does.
