Thanks for the offer, and the idea. I could weld the iron on myself. Being that is the weak point now do you think I would be able to lift the rear wheels? ( not that I would) Also do you have any Idea of where that resettable breaker is located for that Stabilizer. I know your reinforced legs could take the weight without bending. Most Stabilizers would just fold up and bend from the weight. I think the same thing happened to espendedad, when his twisted up. Thank-you very much OC.....

Try " Bugsall " I don't sell it, buy saw it on Facebook bought some, and Rejex wax/Polish. I washed the front of my Montana, and F-350 with the Bugsall, and waxed with the Rejex. Wife and I just got back from a trip from here in NC, to Marathon Key, and back. Had very few bugs on the camper, and truck. Ran the truck through the car wash then wiped of remaining bug remnants with a damp cloth, and little effort. I was impressed!

I guess this is trailer related.

I adjusted the hitches for the sunset trail and the windjammer down 2 inches to account for the difference in height between the 1500 I traded in and the 2500HD I bought. They're close, I'll adjust the tilt when I'm hooked up, one trailer is 125 miles away.

Sitting in Lippert's waiting room, waiting on a truck with parts for a buddy of mine. My part is here, his isn't.

Once I get it, I then have 9 hours of driving ahead of me...

To be honest, I've never looked for it or needed to. I do think that with the landing jacks, the axle stab and the rear stab, I could keep raising each one a little at a time and get all 4 tires off the ground, altho' I will not try it due to the flimsy frame possibly bending or distorting.

Started checkout work for a trip starting next weekend, everything seems fine so I went ahead and installed a voltage gauge. My button to check the voltage is acting up not to mention the 1/3, 2/3 lights aren't the best anyway. It's actually blue, not purple. The laser beam on the panel is the led in the switch, which I may disable.

Then, I found the black tank button acting up. I'm this -->.<-- close to installing a new tank monitoring system, rebuilding the switch panel to something a bit more functional and tossing the factory piece.

I drilled the 4 1/8" hole through the side wall for the dryer install. I was happy it all went well.
