I feel super inadequate. Thanks guys.
I don't have a silverware drawer. There are 3 drawers on the pantry cabinet and 3 more at the storage near the fridge. I also have a roll around island cabinet that I use roll into the living room; this has two wider drawers that work better for silverware, but would love to find a silverware divider for it. So, I'm not much help for you. Wolf

It seemed to pull at speed better, but that could all be in my head. I have to go find a flat area now and reset the ball height, or at least measure it.
I meant to measure it, but.... It is only slightly taller; I am only guessing but less than 2 inches is what I think it raised it. I park under a canopy (16 x 36); clearance was within in 6 inches at the rear corners before and not much closer now. If I pull under without the WDH, I am concerned, but with WDH still in place, no worries.

I wanted to cover the end of the canopy to keep the brutal afternoon sun off the front of the TH. It will deteriorate the decals and could warp the nose. I've considered different ways to do it, but either they are too expensive or probably wouldn't work well. I found EZ Grabbit online and after getting them earlier in week installed them on Wednesday. I used a silver tarp. They hold better than grommets and can be used to erect a temporary shelter or join tarps together. See the pics.

WW, we went to the florida caverns in Marrianna. Had a great time. Had some challenges with the front bedroom led effecting the tv station it turned off the signal and it came back on when the light went off. I hear there are some instances the led cause problems. The corplast is sagging and I know you did I a nice job on yours. Did you replace the corplast? I know I want to try and mouse proof any openings. I like the idea of the insulation and insulating any pipes underneath. I also wanted to address the open electrical box just aft the front tongue. Seems like there would be a problem for corrosion.

Hey John, Im at Henderson Bch SP in Destin. I reused the coro... not damaged. I plugged all holes. Great Stuff You know I added firing strips. Doing it over i would insulate the top side of the coro.. probably Reflectix. The way i did was way too much work.

My 29HFS doesn't have a drawer for silverware either. I stopped looking for a divider that would fit any of my drawers. Bad design. Love everything else though.

Took the HFS to my dealer today. Had them replace the twisted and peeling off LED strip at the awning (the whole awning channel was coming off too, several screws fell out,) also had them fix the backwards installed winterizing valve (both warranty repairs,) and then had the tech run a dedicated satellite coax line from behind the TV out to the side of the rig where the cable and all the water inlets are. Success. Big thanks to the service staff at Pocono RV, and also to the XLR factory rep Mike Chamberlain for sending me the parts needed to make this happen. Good guys all around!

Bottom ramp/door flap

Finally got around to mounting the diamond plate ramp flap on the bottom of my door today. Hopefully, it'll make the ride in and out a bit less scary!
