Installed the 8330-3862 digital thermostat from RV Upgrades.com to replace the coleman mach slider thermostat. I now can see where its set and the inside temp of the TT. Took all of 10 minutes to R&R. This one has bare leads. no connectors and so did the other one. Just 6 wire nuts and some electrical tape

I had a set of slide out toppers installed this morning. An Elkhart Parts & Service rep promised them to me at the Goshen rally.

I've been wanting to add them. What brand did you install?

Put decorative & functional support chains at each end of the flip down door below the kids TV in the bunk room. That way they can leave the door down while using the PS4 and let it stay cool and yet not worry me that the hinges will snap with the door pulling at the hinges with no support.

I was looking for a suitable digital thermostat, as a replacement for the slider, and this looks like it's probably the right thing. (I'll check the model number and wiring of the current one).

Let us know how it performs, particularly if it changes the hysteresis (delta between switching on and off) compared to the slider, and thus if it maintains temperature any better.

Completed installation of the J T Strongarm Jack Stabilizer Kit on our 2014 Silverback 33 RL fifth wheel.....has probably eliminated 95% of the wiggle and bounce inside the camper....looks like this is going to be a good add-on.

Just curious did you mount your front ones where the front basement is 30" as instructions? Mine will not retract on that measurement. Should have held the tubing up to check. My holes on the front jacks were the opposite of the instructions. Probably the issue. Just wondering if mine was different than most.

Hooked up and got ready to go to Thousand Trails Mocksville for 3 days. Changed out the leg pins on the landing jacks, reinstalled the TST 507 Flow Thru sensors, inflated all 5 tires to 65psi. Only going to check & re-torque lug nuts and check out the new Timken bearings and new seals before heading to FL in late Nov.

What kind of jack did you put under your steps? Do you by chance have a photo?
Thanks for your time.
