I don't think your truck would provide enough juice to replace what the inverter is using from your house batteries.

I find no matter what when I plug in my trailer the converter is drawing high amps until the house battery levels off.

Could be the issue

Has anyone added an extension/platform on the aft end of the trailer for a golf cart or atv? I have a golf cart I'd love to take camping. I saw a Flagstaff model with such a platform, not sure if it's factory or home-made.

Anyone know where the vacuum break is for the black tank flush? My tank flush stopped working on our last two trips

I found the vacuum break. It is located behind the closet across from the bathroom. You have to pull the drawer out to access it.

I live in Atlanta Ga, and it's super hot. I went out to camper and it's a million degrees in there. Does anyone leave the vents on top open during the summer to let the heat out or is it ok. Was just worried about it getting to hot to were it started drying out the fabrics and interior stuff. I know rain is a factor but I figured if the nose was high it might not run in the vents. Just a thought, first TT for us.

I had MaxxAir covers installed on all vents so I leave at least one open unless it is freezing cold.

x2 I installed a vent cover so that I could leave mine open a crack specially in the summer. Nothing worse that arriving at the campsite and the trailer is hotter than Hades.
