Your driveway is about the same length as mine only flatter - I have more slope and also I have a lip at the end of the driveway at the street so putting down the tongue jack is not a good idea since it will be seeing a bending moment. Besides getting the trailer unhitched would be a chore as well - probably impossible, based on my experience when I had my HTT.

On the other hand were I to back in I would probably be better off than you as I am on a cul-de sac but even that might be an issue since the radius is pretty tight.

I too live on a cul-de sac. It's always better to drive past and back on the drivers side. It was a beast unhooking as I was at a 90 degree angle. I pull out the other direction. Just don't hook up the bars.

I too have used split loom on all my exposed wiring. I was not impressed with how some of it was ran. I guess I'm just an anal person...BTW there is also an exposed wire on the left side of the couch I added split loom to, besides the wires that go down from the television...

Do you have the slide wires that run next to the sofa slide and the wardrobe slide. I have both wires exposed (somewhat) and was wondering if that's normal.
The tv wires were the first to get split loomed. Can't believe Forest River couldn't think of that too.

I removed the front hitch wires and laid them in the cut out in the battery rail with the split loom. When I picked the TT up they were hanging down. Took about 20 minutes to do (in the cold).

One of the first things I did when I got the unit home. I could not stand battery wires hanging everywhere...I will have to look if they show at the wardrobe slide but they did for the couch / fridge slide. I do not like how that is. I also put a wire loom holder on that one and screwed it to thew wall.

Had to push the TT back a little more than usual to get the slide off the patio. The power service was closer to the curb so I'm glad I had a longer power cord. When we were leaving another 27rlws pulled in. Seems to be a popular model.
You will need the (Long ext.Power cord and Extra water hose) if going to Cherry Hill in DC also. I see you would need LONG sewer hose at that campsite also for extened stay. Our unit (power & water) is in the street side rear,I see you water is forward and power rear. Youroo!! Hey you were there long enough for the Trees to bloom!
