Have you guys ever measured dry tongue weight (loaded to camp though)?

I know it's incredibly dependent on how (and what) it's packed but I am curious.

My Tundra squats 1.5" with the Equalizer WDH. Front stays the same. Thinking of adjusting a bit...

Your extend a shower looks great! Ill have to look into that, i have a few bathroom ideas but they involve alot of work!

I havnt measured my dodge loaded up but since i added supersprings and the blueox hitch i cant complain verse my old camper setup! Sits much better, and i feel this camper is 1k less!

Pics are of the mounts and the screws I bought at Lowes to use with the mounts since the ones with both the shower and mounts are too long.

Looks great. Thanks for posting. The wife was unsure if we need it... I think these pictures will convince her.

It's hard to tell from the picture what the extended shower does. It looks like the top of the shower curtain is extended further away from the shower, giving you essentially more elbow room. Did I see that correctly?

That is correct. I just HATE a clingy wet curtain on me when I'm trying to shower.

hello All fellow Apex owners. out on the first trip of the year with our unit and the radio isn't working. I have checked the fuse on the panel and pulled the radio out everything looks to be hooked up fine. Anyone have any troubleshooting for me well out camping?

its a jensen unit 2014 288 BHS


thanks in advanced

Any lights on? From your post it seems like it's entirely dead.
Did it work during the PDI? If so then there is no wiring issue.
If you have a meter, check the supply on the connector. If that's dead and you're sure the fuse is good I'd check power at the breaker box.
Just keep working the power supply angle farther back until you find power. Then it's between where you just measured and the last bad spot.

no lights on at all on the radio. TV works but no radio and that means no DVD either, radio worked all last season. this is a new issue from the start of this season.

I'd definitely start sniffing around with a meter. I wonder if there's an inline fuse somewhere? Some radios have that but I've never looked on ours.

I could be wrong but there might be a fuse on the back of the stereo, i cant remember when i had it all apart but the power might be tied in with the usb chargers above, does the charger ports work?
