Ragin, any reason why you take it down for travel? Not moving it each time we setup is one of those reasons I want to mount it.

Though the TV is light, you can't use long screws to anchor bracket...so I feel there's more opportunity for it to get ripped out of the wall going down the highway.

ok electric/air conditioner gurus..... if i add the second a/c, will i have to upgrade any of the wiring/electrical box/etc? am i safe to assume that my 12 sabre 5th wheel is ducted to the bedroom as well? will 30a run both at the same time, or will i need to be hooked up to 50a or just use 1 or the other?

If its 50 amp prep which your spec sheet will show your fine.
If its 30 amp you'll have to run a separate cord as another has done on this forum.
It would be a pain and expensive to rewire for 50 amp.
No you cannot run two a/c's off of 30 amp.

It will be ducted to bedroom yes.

Makes sense. Disappointing because I was hoping to save a setup step.

2013 Sabre 36QBOK-7

Hi I'm new to the forums, I just took delivery of our 36QBOK yesterday, I had the dealer install the Trail Air rotoflex hitch on it as a dealer add on. They ordered directly from Forest River but I am not certain they ordered the right one. Is there anyone else that has the option factory installed and could look at the model sticker on the hitch and tell me what there's is? Mine seems to buck more than I think it should and it looks a little short. Thanks!!

Dear Bigblue08,
give me some time today and I will see how we can verify the unit you got. You might goto Lippert's website; Lippert Components, Inc. and compare the information to what they show there.

What numbers are on your pinbox/roto flex?

Bigblue08,
Sabres are currently built with a 1621 pin box. Per the Lippert website, part #160468 is the Roto flex to replace the 1621. I'm not sure where you would see that part number or how to check it.

Please do keep in mind the Roto flex does let the fifth wheel have more forward and back motion due to the hindge of the mech. If you are use to a fixed pin, you will see much more movement than you are use to. The rubber material in the roto flex absorbs the vibration of the "bang" front to back as where a solid pin's "bang" is vibrated thought the unit.

I hope this helps.

I recently looked at a 2013 32bhok and noticed the rotoflex.
Wondered how they'd pull.
