Right. If it is the switch on the stereo cabinet then it is a master switch to kill all lights and the fan. It is a safety issue as was said.

Yes. You need to turnoff all the lights manually if you want the fan running. On my old pop up, the lights would actually dim as I put more lights on such as bunk ends and such. Those suckers draw lots of power. I should think about the LED mod.

Sounds like your unit is fine other than the stabilizer jack. Wonder if it got screwed up during delivery and the guy caught it on something and bent it. No worries. Should not cost you that much to replace it.

Tactical. Can you do me a favor? Can you measure the space between the tires? I want to pre-order some BAL X chocks to stop the rocking and need to know the distance so I can get the right ones. Thx.


Vin.

Ok. great. One last pain in the ass question. How wide is the door?

The new HW's no longer have the large sliding front bin. I have a large Rubbermaid bin that I want to use in its place. Wondering if it will fit thru the door.

Rubbermaid 54 gal. Roughneck Hi-Top Tote-FG3A05H2MICBL at The Home Depot


Hoping to place it right in front of the couch. Two would be fantastic if I could fit it. That way all MY stuff will be in the bins and the inside storage can be used for HER stuff.

Vin.

Awesome. That helps huge.

Not liking the 21" door opening. That is gonna be tight. I might have to get a smaller tote. What was the measure of the second picture? Was that the door also? Why does it look wider or am I just having a hard time seeing where the black edge is.

2.5" wheel space tells me what I can fit in there for wheel chocks.

Thanks again buddy.

Vin.

Yeah, anytime. Second pic was also door opening, just different angle. 21 is the distance.
