Sorry, I wasn't able to get back to you right away - I will have to get pictures, but I mounted the Husky jacks directly to the frame approximately 8 inches in front of the front wheel. That way I still had room for chocks if I wanted too. I am currently using an x-chock on one side and a BAL wheel locking chock on the other side when camping. Between all this and the SteadyFast stabilizers I installed a few weeks ago, the trailer has almost no shake at all. I'll try to get a couple of pictures soon.

When and if it comes to that option it will be back to the factory.

Nothing to mine as I am all ready for a week starting 6-19 to 6-27 food loaded and we are ready to go.

Helped a good friend clean her RV and awning since she is a single mother with 2 teen girls. Replaced her old fan with a fantastic fan two weeks ago then cleaned her RV and awning

Actually it was yesterday, I finished up installing a Fantastic Fan in the living area.

You got that awning pretty clean. I had some spots that just would not come clean and I used everything made to try and do it. I gave up and used Bright White Fusion paint on the spots, Looks like new. Tried the flat finish first but you could see it, redid it in bright white gloss, blended in fine. Once those parts turn yellow, your not going to get them back, Youroo idea will work I did an outside scare light that turned yellow on me last year, still looks good. Also that is very nice of you helping this person out, would like to shake your hand oneday....

Also has the fender well trim and graphics no longer line up. I removed the home made slide glides and readjusted slide back to factory location. Back to square one.

I would wait until you get the strip from FR. You should call the FR# listed for Rockwood. They will send you a glide strip about a foot long. It sounds like your bell is not set for stop correctly. Also those 3 bolts adjust the tilt in and out. I had the same problem that my decals did not line up on the entertainment slide. I keep pussing around with moving it up and down, The main thing is make sure both sides are the same, I counted my turns to make sure, got the decals lined up and reset my stop (Bell). I'll attach the list to call, you need to talk to I think her title is parts manager on the list I'm attaching. I got my glide strips in a week after talking to her. I'm sure you have how to adjust it but I included that to. I think it's page #8 that you want. Her title is parts administrator her name is sherry.( that's who took care of me) She will get you what you need Don't give up yet, but it is a PIA It is probably the tilt adjustment that is causing your problem.

Glen,another reason you want to Shake his hand is to see if He will give you some (Venison)! Fusion can make a Unit look YEARS newer by just making all the (Yellow Plastic Parts) White again! PS Don't use (Fusion WHITE if the parts are another color! Youroo!!
