do you ever bleed the hw heater with the pressure relief valve ? do it cold please !
also check to see if you have a little strainer with a screen in it by your water pump .
check the tightness of the strainer cup .
check to make sure your low point drain caps are tight .

12.5 Foot Telescoping Ladder by Extend A Step
I was curious about the ladder and how easy is it to use getting up and down from the roof???

Is it tall enough for that???

I have one for our rg3210 with a 3inch lift. It is not tall enough. I would think a 15' ladder or taller would work. I have not seen any that are compact and light that are that tall.

Ours is perfect. Bows a little as you go up(I'm 200Lbs) and careful when you collapse it down so you don't pinch fingers, but I think it works great.

I have a question about charging the batteries when connected to the rv, does it matter if the 12v disconnect key is plugged in when charging from an outside source?

Thats a good question. I suppose any trailer can be wired up any way.
My batteries are connected to the bargman connecter even when the shutoff switch is disconnected.

Plugged into my truck, the batteries will charge from the truck regardless of switch position.

Plugged into shore power, my batteries only charge with the switch in the on/closed position.

Anyone notice the floor getting fairly warm in front of the heater/micro when heats on? I am wondering if I have a leaky heater vent hose or if it's normal.
