my local RV show

Today I went to my local RV show just to look around and see different brands and models and to see if I can get Ideas on mods or what not .
But what I did notice was MOST of the campers I saw had battery disconnect switches on them !
Also say a few 5ers with automatic leveling systems on them as standard equipment .
The 5er units I saw also seem to be making the basements ALOT bigger .

Yep, battery disconnects are long over due. Glad they are becoming common. I noticed a 5er recently with auto-level. Why the heck not? Great idea ain't it?!

I'm thinking about buying a set. The intelli jacks brand.
Automatically sets height when ready to hook up your truck .
All you do is push a button where your ready to hook up and it automatically goes to the hitch height .

I'll wait a couple of years for the industry to get any bugs out of the system that is being put on fifth wheels. My wife's nephew has that system on his fifth wheel and one of the legs creeps down when the trailer is in storage. The dealer can't figure out what's causing it.
