X2 on x chocks. My DD can't seem to move in our unit without thinking she's an elephant! Only other thing I can do is leave her at home!

OH yeah...AMG I also use X-Chocks. LOVE them. My wife actually puts them on for me in the time I start lowering the electric tongue jack. VERY good product.

There is no easy way to add a second AC to a 30A trailer. But it can be done. We did it last year by adding a second 30A service / and cord. Our dealer recommended it. Do a search second AC in a 30A trailer Turbs also did it and did a great job of describing in a Thread how he did his.

Good Luck

I use x chocks in addition to the stabilizers and have not had a problem with movement.

I have the JT Strong Arm bars already bought, but I can see the benefit in the X-Chocks, so I am not opposed to buying those too. I will be taking it out in a couple weeks, I'll see how the JT's do.

Right now I dont think a 2nd AC is in the near future. We have this 3-year warranty I want to burn through and then maybe re-think things. TBD..

I have the pillow vent covers with reflective on one side.

Thanks!

I use to use the X-chocks on my pervious 5er but not our new Cedar Creek 5er with the 6-point leveling system. The x-chocks are now in the basement in the house in storage.
I have found that the 6-point leveling system has eliminate 95% of the motion in the trailer when extended. The JT-strong arms should be able to eliminate 95% of the motion that you use to feel when you moved about.

Let us know how they work for you.

Trying to sleep in, in the morning is tough with that bright light shining down on you (especially for the guy in the rear top bunk, looking right up at the sky light).

Has anyone done anything to black these out? How about *insulate* them? I would imagine that with just that plastic in between the interior and the outside world, that is a definite area where heat comes and goes when you wouldn't want it to.

5. This one is a bit tougher as I don't have a pic, and it probably needs someone who has the exact same WA2916 to know? On the left side of the TH, where the drain is, I have the black tank valve directly behind the hookup. Then on each side there looks to be a 2" pipe each with a valve on it. Do I really have 2 separate gray tanks? I would have figured it would be 1, but does the 160 gallon upgrade on the Stealth rather than just a larger single gray tank, split to two tanks?
Hey man...i just thought of something cheap to tint those awfully bright vent covers as well as the door window which pissed me off the whole trip last time cause I woke up to the bright light shining in on me through it.
Plasti-dip! I think they have a "tint" color that is like a translucent black to use for the door windows, and you can probably just black out the vent covers. And if you dont end up liking it, peel it off! for $5 a can i think im going to try it.
I was looking at covers for the door windows but all I could find was a cover that was made of the foil material like the front window shades you put in your car. I think it had suction cups to stick them on but may not really work seeing as the glass isnt smooth its got the bumpy texture to it. And the only things i could find for the vents were big black covers that prevent rain from getting in during bad weather but still allows you to open the vent to get fresh air...
I know plasti-dip may sound kind of hokey but if you mask it nicely and do a couple of light coats it can look pretty nice.

As far as the double gray tank valves, yes there are two gray tanks. Someone mentioned above that the front bathroom probably emptied into one tank and the kitchen probably emptied into another. Im not 100% sure but for some reason my mind thought the shower emptied into one (seeing as a shower uses a lot of water) and that the two sinks emptied into the other. Im going to try and get under my rig this weekend and figure some other things out so ill try and remember to verify all this stuff too!
