I don't think your truck would provide enough juice to replace what the inverter is using from your house batteries.

I find no matter what when I plug in my trailer the converter is drawing high amps until the house battery levels off.

Could be the issue

Has anyone added an extension/platform on the aft end of the trailer for a golf cart or atv? I have a golf cart I'd love to take camping. I saw a Flagstaff model with such a platform, not sure if it's factory or home-made.

Anyone know where the vacuum break is for the black tank flush? My tank flush stopped working on our last two trips

I found the vacuum break. It is located behind the closet across from the bathroom. You have to pull the drawer out to access it.

I live in Atlanta Ga, and it's super hot. I went out to camper and it's a million degrees in there. Does anyone leave the vents on top open during the summer to let the heat out or is it ok. Was just worried about it getting to hot to were it started drying out the fabrics and interior stuff. I know rain is a factor but I figured if the nose was high it might not run in the vents. Just a thought, first TT for us.

I had MaxxAir covers installed on all vents so I leave at least one open unless it is freezing cold.

x2 I installed a vent cover so that I could leave mine open a crack specially in the summer. Nothing worse that arriving at the campsite and the trailer is hotter than Hades.

Looks like the drain for your fresh water tank. Valve must be open.

If that is your breather tube for your fresh water tank, it may be 'self draining'..... Mine did that on our first few trips. a suction is created by water sloshing or over filling and flowing out and then the tank is able to sometimes drain 2/3s because of the suction/siphon effect. A Dealer (or you) may have to rework the tube to stop the siphon effect.

Petcock turned to the open position and draining fresh tank. The other two hoses are overflow/vent hoses.

Thanks for the replies. I have never filled the fresh tank and have left this valve open all the time (should I keep it closed?). We have been in torrential rain for 2 days and suddenly this valve began draining. Wasn't sure if it was coincidence or? The suction effect makes sense, I'm sure there was some water in the tank, but we're talking gallons of water draining. After this trip I have a long list of warranty repair items so I'll add thus and have it checked for good measure.

Here is something I have been thinking about in regards to the "bowing" of the outside kitchen doors some of us have been experiencing.

I have been leaving my outside fridge turned on with my drinks in it when I am not at the trailer with the door closed. There is no venting in my outside kitchen. I know some trailers have a duct vent into the bunkhouse.

I wonder if the heat from the fridge is what caused the door to bow???

Also do you think there are any issues with the fridge long term leaving it running with the trailer all closed up??

Please discuss,

Is your kitchen vented to the inside of your trailer?

That's a good point to consider. On my last trip I started turning my outside fridge off when I pack up.
