Set up you just put the jack down then tighten the set screw.

Thanks for the info. I might consider just adding some additional (manual) jacks before this option. Price is not that much different.

On my old camper I had some jack-stand style jacks that I used at the axles to help take out the suspension movement. I think they are too short for this camper though.

The other thing I like about the manual jacks is the ability to influence the balance of the trailer. Earlier this summer I had it all nice and level and then when I put out the slides the weight shifted enough to put that side a little low (I think the tires settled into the ground a bit too, not helping) and there is nothing you can do to influence that, short of putting everything back in, attaching it to the truck, moving forward, putting down blocks, backing back up, and then setting everything up again. Too much hassle so I just lived with a slightly off-level camper for the weekend.

anyway - thanks for the info. If these were cheap and easy I would jump on them. But I will perhaps just add another set of jacks.

So in the bunk room, I pulled the panels off under the front of the couch. I stained the boards and now the wasted space is usable storage.

MarkyB - is that a fixed couch or does it fold out into a futon style bed?

Mine has a futon style couch that lifts up at the front and folds down flat. I sometimes just tip it up and store items in the open space, but there is a center bar that prevents storing anything too large.

I also avoid storing anything too heavy, since its on the slide. Maybe this isn't a valid concern?

It's the jackknife style couch...
You could hold up the bottom and see there was space there, but it was hard to use that way.
No, nothing heavy, just chairs and a box fan that didn't have a home.

Took the metal blinds off and replaced them with paper shades that fit inside the window frame.

Moving the bunk room couch to the living room so we can all sit comfortably.

Hey all. I'm almost at my whitts end. I have a 15 31KQBTS and I just got home from camping in it this weekend. I purchased it 9-29-15 so I have a feeling my warranty is done and there are quite a few issues that just showed itself this camping trip, mind you this is ONLY the second season and the 4th time we used it. I purchased this brand new because I didn't want to deal with these issues. Here is the list of my problems:
Outside kitchen drain is dripping at the elbow directly under the sink
The galley tank is also pouring out from the top of it
Left side rear slide motor is not working because I went to pull it in and nothing.
The toilet doesn't hold water in the bowl (that was my fault with the wand and I need a small clip to hold the ball into the side of the toilet so not a big issue)
One of the rear slide buttons have almost pulled out of the wall in the back
A outlet panel has pulled out of the wall in the back room
I have mold in the outdoor kitchen next to my fridge (fridge was never iced up and only used for drinks and was thoroughly cleaned before the end of season last year)
During a hard rain storm water was coming in under my fridge and running across the main floor
I have the led strip under my canopy outside and some of the leds flicker
The light in my cubby hole was never connected

Now does anyone know if anything on this list will be covered?? I should not have these issues with, essentially, a brand new unit. Thanks all for the help, as I'm extremely frustrated about this.
