Stays up on it's own, not like the jack switch boxes which won't.

That was the very first thing I did when we got our 12Flagstaff 5er home in Feb2012.

What are you referring to? Haven't added anything other than the red vinyl insert.

Been 2 tubes back there for at least 2+ years, ask Glenn. You need to get your glasses changed or open your eyes when you look at something.

Today I looked at the forecast, looked at the Rockwood. Waiting on winterizing. We have some warm weather on the way!

So on my way to Florida the other day.. I saw for the first time a stinky slinky laying on the shoulder... Looked like one of the cheap "RV Kit" ones you get when getting a new trailer... Shortly after was the plastic tube it used to be in... LOL

Heh, I guess that's a good reminder to check those brackets and bolts every now and then.

My mod seems very secure (for now). I think the nylock nuts help for sure, and fixing the fencepost to the bracket also. Several nuts/bolts would all have to come loose at the same time for it to come off. (so a periodic check is definitely a good idea, to keep those odds low)
