Good move. If not familiar, but I think you are, check out ford-trucks.com for plethora of info. Good luck with it. I'm sure it will serve you well.

I realized, as I had to crawl underneath the slide out in order to dump the front gray tank, that I need some kind of extension to reach the blasted valve release lever!!

Replaced all my CH571 locks with American made locks that can be re-keyed. (Man was that locksmith mad about Chinese locks!)

Also cut and stained a shelf for the cabinet above the kitchen sink. Can't wait to install it.

At the local old school locksmith shop downtown. They were none too cheap, though.

Ditto!

Think mine were about $10 a piece.

But nobody else can help me open my storage compartments now!

Ordered mine from this site and put them on Tuesday. Staff was very helpful with choosing the correct lock replacements (had one that was an odd size.) Took about 3 days to receive them and the instructions were great and they were packaged so that you didn't have a bunch of stuff just thrown into a bag or a box. Very happy with the product and the service. (And no, I am not on their payroll )

Thanks for the info. Checked out the site and talked to the engineer who sent the video of how to measure size. Now to check that all locks are the same size and get them ordered. Too bad they don't handle the keyless door entry . . .

Know what you mean, having a full wall slide, we pull it in before draining tanks. Makes it lots easier . . .

Double check all of your locations prior to drilling and mounting. Mr. Hanson was great at answering questions, even called me on a Sunday to see how the install was going.
Your Son will NOT bend this jack unless he weighs over (3500#) its a GM car jack (1 1/2 to 17") adjustment! Junk yard Cheap also! Youroo!!

Ordered a EEZ-RV-TPMS10 TPMS (and temp) system from EEZ RV Products. Tom was very responsive to my questions. Opted for the non-flow-through because they'd stick out beyond my wheels (truck and TT).

I'm liking that. A scissor jack from the junk yard for 5 bucks should do the trick. Thanks for the idea!

I see, OC, that you replaced clearance with led bulbs. Which model, type, and from where you bought them, as we're getting ready to do the same. Thanks, Old Coot

Just ordered an Anderson no sway hitch, been going back and forth on this started to over analyze the whole purchase finally made up my mind. Guess I will see for myself how it works.
