Yeah, I can't wait. These last 2 campsites have been such that the door is the low side for leveling, so we've had a really big step from the bottom down. Even with my step stool out there, it's a lot.

Can those steps be used without the legs? Say you are making a "pit stop" and coming right back out. Do you have to set the leg height every time?

No idea, but I think they need to be used. I'll check the manuals when I get them and/or ask my contact at TorkLift.

Just pull the wires for those outlets from the distribution panel and create a sub panel for the inverter to tie into and then you don't have to go into the slides to the receptacles.

Is there any harm in those outlets always running on the inverter? I assume not since the battery will be regularly charged by the converter.

(Which reminds me- need to check on my water levels.)

If your inverter has a pass-through circuit then when the trailer is plugged into shore power the AC would go through the inverter to the sub panel and power the outlets but when the trailer is disconnected from shore power the inverter would kick on and power those AC outlets through the sub panel

Yep here are a couple will take some of the spotless engin in the AM. Went to Ford today and they certified it. They told me to drive the hell out of it being such few miles they said the seals still need to be broken in not enough miles for the age. Still gave me a bumper to bumper for 48 mos/ 60,000 miles.
