For what it's worth. We found these at Khol's and they work very well. They are beanbag type foot rests so they probably weigh a pound each. Since this floorolan has no recliners this is a great substitute. A little pricey, with discount coupons about $40 each.

Somebody asked about photo's of the fence post mod for sewer hose storage. These are 5 x 5 PVC fence posts. I installed 2, one for sewer hose and other for folding RV ladder. A lot of work but worth it in the end.





A lot of discussion on these in the mods thread.

If you could see your way clear, it would be advantageous to attend the rally and let them fix it with factory personnel.

I would love to make the rally but saving my time for the grand baby due in late August. I believe the dealer will come around but needed the TT for the 4th weekend. I will be calling him after the holiday.

Love the mod. May have to work that on this summer.

Nice work. Any chance of a photo of the attachment of the hangers to the frame?

Thanks. Here is a picture of the frame clamps I made. I have a Harbor Freight cutoff saw and wire welder so I welded a spacer and top piece to form a U for the inside of the frame. Used a spacer and fender washer on the 5/16 threaded rod supports to attach to the outside of the frame. You could use a spacer and fender washer on both sides, probably easier and just as good.

OK, that makes some sense. Our last Forest River TT had the exact same refer and we never heard a sound out of it. It was not on a slideout. Now with this floor plan we were very worried on our first trip out when all of a sudden we heard the high pitch whining!! Called the dealer right away and he explained it was the fan to draw out the heat during the hot part of the day. It does not run at night once the air cools down.

Thanks. Good to see you did not drill into the flanges of the frame. That would have weakened the section.

FWIW, The factory drives screws/nails all up and down the bottom flange to attach the wood strips for the underbelly.

Why doesn't that surprise me.
