Cool thanks. I think any stabilizer, even the heavy duty ones, can't do what the JTs can do.

Add led step lighting and a 2 channel remote. 1 button turns step lights on and off and other button turns awning light on and off. I kept the single switch inside turns them both on. Nice when I come back to camper at night when it pitch dark.

Dropped mine off at the dealership for some warranty repair work. So far FR has gone above and beyond to get my issues taken care of.. including my gray water tank issue. They sent me a 2nd tank and the dealership will hopefully be installing it this week (if not, I'll be doing it myself). FR was great to work with and once everything is all finished, I'll definitely be leaving some feedback on here. Can't wait to get it back with now 62 gallons of gray water capacity!

Nice JR! I added 2 remotes, one for the awning and the other for interior indirect lighting over the slide.. they also dim. I have the motion sensor Starlight at the door which is very handy. I would like to add step lights (maybe just tie into the awning light)

I'm having to use my tote to dump my tanks where I'm camped / volunteering... PITA!

Yea. The 24HFS is incorrectly advertised as having a 57 gallon gray water capacity. I think they just copied / pasted it from the other models that have 2 tanks. I noticed something was odd on one of the first trips when it filled a lot faster than I would have expected. I finally got a chance to drop the lower cover and found that there was only 1 tank installed and it was only 31 gallons. So I spoke with FR and after some discussion, they sent me a 2nd 31 gallon gray tank to have installed with just a crossover pipe. That way it will end up doubling the capacity and give me roughly 62 gallons now.

New to the site.. Thumbed thru all of these and found some great ideas. Thanks for sharing all of this!

I haven't done much to our 30FQSL yet. We added the tv's early in and the Onan generator. We have a 15 month old and our biggest change was converting the hauler into a playroom.

Part of this process was to get my fishing rods higher up. The rods ended up being a great place for a make shift baby camera.

We took it to the lake over the 4th. Got caught overnight with a pop up squall and it bent the awning arm and also ended up bending it so far to puncture the roof. A 12k lb camper shaking in the wind is a scary thing. Hoping to have back next week. I want to start working on some of the stuff you guys have posted!

Sorry to see the damage to your awning. There is a benefit to poles and tie downs for preventing this type of damage.

I agree.. We went inside to put our son down and sit around for a little bit. There was no breeze and the hourly forecast called for 5mph winds. 30 minutes later we were in 60 to 70 mph gusts. I normally roll it back at night if I know of a storm. It was crazy! I think our pop up shade took the brunt of it though...
