Doesn't it say right on the back bumper that adding anything to the bumper or the frame could void the chassis warranty? It says that on a sticker on my 2017 26DBH...

You checked with the dealer, now that's funny!
Did you get it in writing?

That's a dumb question, OF COURSE I would get this in writing!!! I'm not one who needs to take my TT in to the dealer for weeks for a leaky sink or broken light so I guess the risk vs reward for me made sense... Thanks for all your concerns!

The next mod you need to do is get rid of that crap antenna. Just switched out to a king Jack and it it's awesome.

Pretty sure my wife would crap herself if I had to cut a hole in the ceiling of ours....does anybody make a decently priced direct replacement of the POS that they put on it from the factory?

LOL! My wife did cringe a bit but it was not bad at all. Took about an hour and a half tube of dicor.

I talked to the dealership before I installed it and yes got it in writing. I won't be able to post pics as my unit is stored for the next couple weeks. But if I remember I will post some pictures.

Install was pretty easy. Took the old antenna off. Have to enlarge the hole in the roof of the camper then took a long small drillbit and drilled through the ceiling inside the camper to get the location. That hole had to be enlarged to about 7/8". All the wiring is already done so just plug everything in. Put sealant on the bottom of the antenna then screw to roof. Lastly applying plenty of dicor around base of antenna.

MAKE SURE EVERYTHING IS WORKING BEFORE SEALING IT ALL UP.
