Hi,

I am pulling a 33RL Silverback with the TST 507 system. It works very well on my rig without a booster/repeater.

FWIW.

I purchased a Tiremider system with a free repeater $300 all in. Works great on my 40 ft Fifth Wheel.

Everyone needs to have a TPMS on the camper and truck, buy the kind you like and trust, just get one.

When you say "Don't Work" do you mean "Do not display anything at all" or do you mean "Always say 'full' even when empty"?

My opinion...but what was the thought process behind these ideas?
A small fridge above the drawers in the bedroom of the three Riverstones on display.

Propane bottles in the front storage on a Sierra fifth wheel. Lifting a full bottle into the compartment while bent over doesn't seem like it would be fun.

2 twenty pound propane bottles instead of 30 pound bottles on a brand called Arctic Wolf.

Um....prime examples of folks that design RVs, have never used a RV?

(Sad but true - I have spoken to a FR design manager that told me he has worked in the industry for 20+ years and have never owned or spent one night in a RV )

Personally, I think it should be a requirement that every RV designers spends a week in the RV that they design and is required to do every activity that RVers have to do - maybe then those heavy Propane bottles will not be placed in awkward places.

NB: Last year, the Riverstone had the fridge by the bedroom fireplace and I distinctly remember that my comment to the rep was "remove this from the RV" not "Relocate this to a MORE inconvenient place in the RV"

Can't say it was good . We only received a few strands of beef and lots of corn and applesauce! Everything was gone ! The caterers need to serve everything to avoid shorting the last group called.

Rob McR--We're sitting here within sight of your NC flag. Looks great whipping in the breeze and I've been over a couple of times to say hi, but missed you so far.
Sorry I missed you last night -- I actually fixed dinner (a nice sirloin) on my Camp Chef last night and did wander down to the Tiki Hut but didn;t get much of a welcome, so I came back to my TT. Even though it is already 9:00 PM I may wander over to the Phrog Pond with a bottle of wine... Maybe I'll see you there.

We were in the last group to go thru the serving line tonight, the Ham and Corn was great, they were out of everything else.

But all is well Great Hospitality and Great Service Tech's. Making lots of new friends and seeing some old friends again. The weather has been outstanding once the Storms all passed thru.
