Anyone looking for this particular camper can get a great deal on this one and I'm throwing in all my camping gear with it. I enjoyed spending a lot of time doing the mods I found on this forum and I'll sure miss it. You are a bunch of great people for all the help you've given me and I still can't get over how resourceful and helpful the people on this forum are. Thanks to every one of you for great advice, tips and your friendship.
You should consider putting an ad in the classified forum with photos. It will get more exposure and you can add photos.

I already put my ad in the classified section. Haven't gotten any bites yet, but once somebody notices that I have most of the mods done that they will want, I think I'll find somebody that would rather buy it than doing them all themselves. I can't believe how much I done to it in only a year. This forum is addicting!!

The Front one is black+gray (two valves, one outlet), and easy to get to.
The middle one (under the dinnette/sofa slide, so hard to get to, but fairly close to the front one) is kitchen gray water, so I'd like to couple that one with the front one.
The rear one is black tank for the 1/2 bath, and fairly easy to get to too, so I think I'd just leave that one alone.
That would mean that I'd just have three dump valves for the front hookup, and only need to switch to the other hookup for dumping the rear 1/2 bath (which gets less usage anyway, so doesn't need to be dumped as often)

From my experience getting the 5 patents I have, there is too much "prior art" to get a patent on the brackets & poles. Manual awnings had the feature and that alone would be reason to reject a patent.

Those electric awning are pretty worthless without them. I've had mine out in 35 - 40 MPH winds and pouring rain with no problems. They have certainly paid for themselves. I use the Claw tie downs and they don't come loose.

I have to agree with you, don't understand folks not using them to get full use of an expensive option.

Sorry to hear about your health problems, but enjoy the permanent site camping. We are discussing just selling ours and finding a park model in FL for the winters.

Definitely interested in the poles and brackets, but need more info on how they attach and store.
Must remember to IM Turbs and OC
