Good move. If not familiar, but I think you are, check out ford-trucks.com for plethora of info. Good luck with it. I'm sure it will serve you well.

I realized, as I had to crawl underneath the slide out in order to dump the front gray tank, that I need some kind of extension to reach the blasted valve release lever!!

Replaced all my CH571 locks with American made locks that can be re-keyed. (Man was that locksmith mad about Chinese locks!)

Also cut and stained a shelf for the cabinet above the kitchen sink. Can't wait to install it.

At the local old school locksmith shop downtown. They were none too cheap, though.

Ditto!

Think mine were about $10 a piece.

But nobody else can help me open my storage compartments now!

Ordered mine from this site and put them on Tuesday. Staff was very helpful with choosing the correct lock replacements (had one that was an odd size.) Took about 3 days to receive them and the instructions were great and they were packaged so that you didn't have a bunch of stuff just thrown into a bag or a box. Very happy with the product and the service. (And no, I am not on their payroll )
