Will do.
How long have you had your 195? We also plugged up holes in bottom of subfloor- found them by looking thru tub and lower cabinet panels (saw daylight thru cheap tarp on bottom, plus had rips in it and debris from wood floor structure. Very poor quality comtrol. Be careful, dangerous fumes can get into trailer. Also, is your outside compartments key number 751 and entrance door key number 326? Very common keys used for numerous (and many) camper trailers.

That's funny, the 751 was issued as a "skeleton" key at least 25 years ago.

we have had ours for a little over a year. we noticed the open area also. ut i didn't fill it in. I do keep an eye on holes on the black tarp and use gorilla tape to seal up any holes. not sure about the keys have to look at them

Going to Kansas (w/o trailer) for a short stay at daughters. Have appointment the 21st at Quietwoods to look at axel. Seems to me that with non vertical tire alignment, there would be wear on the inside tread edges from the slant?

27RKSS here also, 2 new axles, 4 new leaf springs, 5 new wheels and 5 new tires. Lippert problem also, thankfully warrantied and the leaf spring did not let go while my wife was towing, it was down to 1 leaf and it looked like a pretzel, 100 miles from home.

No problem so far on our trailer. We bought it this year and been out 4 times. Going again next weekend.

We have 300 miles on our xlite 195 and both tires are worn weird on the inside. And noticed this weekend that the front wall has a lot of bumps on it. Waiting to hear from the dealer.

Sure looks like moisture coming from the opposite surface, not good news, should be dealt with pronto.

The dealer says the bend is intentional and will straighten out with a loaded trailer. Fact is, ours did not!

Dealer confirmed it was water damage but couldn't find the source yet.
