Hey Youroo,

I see you have a forward kitchen Vlite, what is the vent in the pic about a foot or more above the potable water inlet?

Sadly we are starting to unload the WC Sterling for the season in prep to get it winterized in the next few weeks.

The Pic. is NOT our unit,it was a New unit that was leaving the F/R Factory! That unit is a Mid Kitchen unit,not a Front Kit. V-Lite. I was inside the F/R Fac. getting our slide repaired? Took the Pic.of the (Wheel/Tire) out the door. Our V-Lite has that (Vent) at the (Top Rear) Fac told us it was a (Roof Vent)! Have no idea what that side (Vent) is for on that unit! Here is where we were when I took the (Wheel/Tire Pic.

Just went in the camper to check things and discovered the toilet was dry. No good to not have some water in it. Turned water pump on and filled it about half full. That should last for a few weeks. BTW, you also need to put a cup of water in the drains too to keep the P traps full so you don't get sewer smell in the camper. Lucky ours weren't dry.

Me, I'll check mine after they've been off as will others that are concerned and have checked them as I have and found them in need of tweaking.
What I said was to check them before every trip, also my truck rims are not steel alum. alloy the same as my trailer. The reason they loosen is because it takes time when new to seat. His trailer has over 4000 miles on those rims. Never once did I say don't check them. I do before every trip. The last trip I was with you was about 700 miles, I never seen you check the torque unless it was at midnight and I missed it. I do understand before a trip, but once they are torqued after being set already, I don't think that I need to stop every 25 miles as was said to recheck. You could disagree I really do not care, but Once again I said to check before, you do not have to go through the whole process of re breaking them in. Simple statement. Haven't had a wheel fall off yet.

I finally decided on the location for the 50 amp cord reel and I installed it today. Oh yeah baby, I wonít be fighting with that Anaconda in cold weather this February. Iíve been wanting one of these since the 2013 FROG Goshen rally so after saving up my allowance I bought one this year at the 2014 Goshen rally.

If the wheels were removed, even if he had 100,000 miles on it he should re-torque after the wheels have been removed. Then only re-torque the first 75-100 miles until the nuts do not move. Don't mess with them after that. Whenever an alum wheel is loosened, you should go thru the multi step re-torqueing. I never said or implied I checked the torque every day.

That I would agree with, and before every trip, that's all. I thought that is what I said to begin with?
