Any idea what the difference is between the different options listed on amazon, that are sold by Amazon (not some reseller price-gouging) but have different costs for the same size ?

e.g.:
30306 specifically says Marine/Recreational
30313-CSR shows pictures of boat/car/RV
30324 specifically says it's for rubber seals

Confused by all these crazy options.

I do think I need to protect the seals on the slide-outs
(tho' one of the side seals is already split at the bottom, and I'm not sure if I'll have time to take it in to dealer for repair before big road trip)

Added wet bolts (greaseable) and bronze bushings to the Sabre 5th suspension springs today. Top (center) nylon insert on the equalizers was shot after two years and 12,000 miles. After some manipulation with 40/80 grit sandpaper roller up like a cigarette and a welders c-clamp for compression, we managed to get Dexter bushings into Al-Ko equalizers. Probably won't need to service that part of my trailer for a while. Also upgraded the shackle straps to the monster thick Dexter parts and added the stainless steel valve stems cause the rubber valve stems mounted on Westlake tires had a 5212 date code and we're starting to rot/crack.

Thats what I am talking about. They work good and don't take up much space.

Still waiting for the new Columbus 320RS to be ready for pickup. Ordered the Blue Streak for it at about 8:00am this morning (Thursday) and 20 minutes later got the UPS tracking number with delivery set for Monday. That is customer service.

I agree. I ordered one Saturday night and received it Wednesday. First trip is planned for late April, so I will have it installed prior to the trip.
BTW I had never heard of the Blue Steak system before reading about in this thread!

What I like about it, if you empty tanks before heading home and use the bathroom and can't dump at home, no stink.

Nope. Just a cradle to fit under the u-bolt on a leaf spring setup.

Will that Jack fit if your tire is flat??? Ironically I stopped this morning on my way to work to see if a stranded motorist needed help. Couldn't get the bottle jack under so I went back home and got them my floor jack.
Knowing you, you've probably got it all figured out. Was just wondering.

Hammered and bent back my door after a break in at my storage unit. They were apparently looking for TV's and I keep mine at home. I need a sign on it that says "No Televisions on Board. Guess I'm in the market for a new door. Locks and stayed latched ok, but looks awful.
