I want to get one of those kits, too. Looks like it will make it lots easier to access that storage. Beats holding the bed up with the top of my head while DW gets things out or puts them away!

How are your battery boxes secured to the rail? Mine is just sliding around in it. I suppose I could bolt it to the rail but it think there are supposed to be brackets or something???

I put a group 31 box on, came with 2 clips that the strap goes through then box sits on top. I screwed them down which was a pain!
If you do screw any thing down drill pilot holes for screws, then drill a bigger hole through top angle iron piece only. This will help aid in not breaking any screws as it will only be attaching to the bottom square iron.
You will see rust coming out where the top angle iron and square tube meet, run a bead of some black silicone along all that, i can see it rusting away in time!

What do you guys use to level your Apex 288BHS at the campsite?
Anyone use the Andersen levelers?

We use the stackable leveling blocks. Orange and look like Legos. They work well. Also, highly recommended 'x-chocks'. They keep trailer nice and stable. I would post pics but can't figure out how from an I-phone

Heavy rain ='s that dam leak is back! Pulled the board off some in the front compartment, looks like its either where the awning wire enters or a screw.
Ill have a closer look tomorrow. Guess i might as well move that electric wire under the bed while i have the storage board pulled out.
