They work great during the spring and fall with the falling leaves. It's a two person job to roll them up when they are wet while sweeping them off with a broom.

Thanks for the responses. I'm hoping the gutter extrusion has the slide in slot for the awning fabric incorporated so as not to have to drill into trailer. I don't mind drilling into slide as there probably aren't any wires there. My trailer is in indoor storage and it's valet service so I can't just run out and look at it. Do any of you know if that is true or is it a separate strip screwed in below gutter? Wish I had ordered them from factory!

Creepy Critters

The DW was complaining about flies and mosquitoes getting into the trailer, and it took yours truly rocket scientist a while to figger out they were probably sneaking in through the soft brush at the bottom of the door, as out unit has been used enough to keep a permanent gap.

Anybody else with this problem, and what did you do to solve it?

Not so much there but these stink bugs crawl up through the dinette slide cracks and crevices. They seem to get in through just about every small space there is. Get them in the bathroom fan onto the screen. Love that as I turn it on full blast and open the vent. It chops them up and scoots them on in one shot.

You are already at 74% of your towing capacity without any load of any kind. Add all the stuff you put in the TT, you,the DW, full fuel tank and any other CampingRequiredAccessoryParts (CRAP) not a lot of room to move here. Plus, you may find the occasion to have to get it from 60 to 0 rapidly, You do the math

We get a few tics here but not real bad. Stink bugs are what seem the state bug cause they are everywhere. We get a huge infestation of carpenter bees too. They love to drill perfect holes in wooden decks and just about anything wood.

We keep sticky traps out in our trailer when not occupied and have yet to get any bugs. Our slides seal pretty well fully closed and open. Lucky I guess (well maybe not since that is what they are supposed to do). Also, our hvac will both freeze and heat you without issue. We have had out trailer in Temps ranging from 30 to 100 and the system works great. Again, maybe we are lucky...My only real gripes are that the trailer should have come with the options for 55amps and layouts that would allow refrigerator to be accessed without
Slide extention...

Ours seals up real good but those little buggers can squeeze through just about any crack. We get about the same temp range as you guys up there. Now we can burn through a tank of propane in the winter in no time. Thought about adding "Cheap Heat". There should be enough room next to the heater under the sink. Dealer said you will love it but your campground won't cause it burns electric not propane.
