Ain't much R value to the thin plastic the vent lids are made from.
Thanks for the tips with the vent pillows, I'll be introducing the idea to my mother in law very soon Thanks again and thanks for the pictures. Even though you don't have a picture from the side do you remember from memory where they connect to the camper? Thanks again!!!!

Thats a good idea, it would kind of solve my problem of the arms going forward instead of backwards. Two first concerns are as for the stress, that is where the the company installed them making me think it can't be too bad but I do see what your saying. My second concern is that few inches higher making the jacks more fully extended and weaker depending on the camp site

Thanks

I was at the camper this weekend but didn't look. I'll try to take some pics next weekend. Turbs posted some good pics of his on another thread http://www.forestriverforums.com/for...-28599-65.html bottom of page.

Thanks Turbs, this is the view outside my office this morning mid April, highs in the low 30's this week, yippie. I'm glad I took my motorcycle for a ride last week. As for the stabilizer go I'm looking where to connect them to the camper I'm assuming yours may be a little farther back since yours are electric but any ideas would be great!! Thanks

Well I got tired of the rocking in the rear of the trailer (master bedroom is in the back) so I ran a 3/8" alum angle from i-beam to i-beam a little in front of the scissor jacks to mount the it strong arms too. It works amazing much more stable eliminated most of my complaints

I just wanted to update you guys. I still haven't gotten around to my kingpin bike carrier probably next on the agenda, then the hitch for the golf cart
