made a small change to my fresh water tank drain. I probably worry too much but, i thought the drain was too long and could possibly get knocked off if I were unable to avoid a road gator. Plus the drain tube was too far under the trailer to easily reach.

before and after pictures. I added a ball valve.

Steve,
That looks really good. I have not had the trailer long enough to look at the things I might want to change. Besides everytime I mention something my wife ask if it is going to void the warranty. The issue I am looking at is the ramp door. There is strating to be a small crease in the door where I ride the bike up it. I was thinking about reinforcing it by attaching a piece of plywood to the door. But I am not exactly sure what there is to fasten it to or what type of fastener to use.

If it one of the doors that is having problems, there was a fix not long ago on this forum. I have a 29 MBV that has the door made by Lippert, I think. It is not showing anything inside or outside. Please let us know what happens with the door.

I would contact FR, see what they have to say and search the forums as Jestercyco suggested. I would have to think about this one. I always try to avoid permanent mods, like drilling holes. It may be the only option you have to strengthen the door.
Maybe a narrow aluminum ramp laid on the door which is rigid enough to take some of the weight off the door. You could use it just for loading/unloading and store it in the garage or under the trailer. Or bolt it to the door. Problem with bolting, you would have to load the GW in the same place each time. Even a 2x12 may disperse the weight enough.

I cintacted the dealer Cheyenne Camping Center, Walcot Ia. Talked to a service advisor he wants me to take pics and send them to him. He said that he would contact the manufacturer. Hopefully they will be of some help. My wife is not to excited about putting holes into the door.
