Added a rear-view camera - Pyle PLCM7200 and wireless transmitter/receiver.
The image is good and the display is bright enough for daylight viewing. I have it setup for full time use (the rear view mirror only shows the tops of trucks).
Review monitor - wired and installed by cdrdwd, on Flickr
rear-view camera installed by cdrdwd, on Flickr

We continue to get things ready for our first week long vacation. My husband installed shelves in the cabinets, installed a back up camera in the truck and TT. I have been organizing the items we need for cooking and eating and continue to make small purchases of needed items. We will have another weekend trip just prior to our travels so we can be sure everything works well and that we have what we need for a week with ten people.

Thanks for the photos, at least I know what I'm looking for.
Phonedude, lift up the flap of carpet, the wear blocks are under there. I had them replaced at Goshen last year.

Brought it home from the dealer. Put the stinky slinky fence post back on. Same frame width as the Roo, so it went right back on.

Been a while since I visited. Well, been slpwly working on the new 183 Roo. Got my WiFi system all set. Installed a PI hardwired unit (thing is sweet), got a coat of wax on her to help clean her up from the tree poop. Got my vacation coming up, and 2 huge trips to Carowinds, Kings Dominion, and Cedar Point to prep for.

Installed a pair of husky jacks in front of the wheels to help stabilize the trailer and then drilled out the pop rivets in the entry steps and replaced them with bolts.

Do you have a photo? I am thinking of either XChocks or another pair of jacks in the middle of my Roo to keep the shaking down, I have the 23IKSS comes with 4 but when GF daughter is in back bunk trailer shakes when she moves

Couldn't see anything under the carpet flap on the slide. I moved the slide about 3/4 of the way out and raised the flap, could only see the edge of what looked like plywood. Tried to see under the plywood, couldn't see under it, only about a 1/2" gap before it would drop down if extending the slide fully. Guess I'll just live with it till next years Goshen rally. I had planed on this years rally, even made arrangements with FR for some roof repair the week before the rally but senior pets and vet expenses are keeping us away this year. Lost one (our yorkie) a month ago. With the Rally sold out and the pet situation puts this years rally out of the question.
Thank you for your suggestion

Sorry about your pets. Hope things get better soon. I have the same issue with two of my slides that you have. I've cleaned and lubed everything possible and it has gotten better but is still objectionable. I'm going to the Goshen rally and this is on my service request. If I remember I'll let you know what they find and maybe it will help you before the rally next year.
