Sidecarflip seems to be confusing water capacity of a cylinder (not propane capacity) and that a cylinder can only be filled to 80% of a cylinders total water capacity. This is a common error as people confuse water capacity with propane capacity. 80% of the cylinders water capacity is not close to 75% of a cylinders propane capacity. This was also what the propane companies got sued for misleading customers on.

Now to Johnbryanpeters post, he just simply stated gallons, instead of pounds...which is another misnomer. You can measure propane by weight or gallons. Using the tare weight (empty weight) of a propane cylinder, then you add the weight of the propane to get it's full weight (not gallons). A gallon of propane averages around 4.2 pounds at 60 degrees with a 20 pound cylinder holding around 4.7 gallons.

Here is a great discussion with links for those that may interested in reading, to help in the understanding of propane cylinders, as well as water/propane capacities, weights, and gallons. This is a subject that RV'ers should kinda familiarize themselves with as the terminology can be confusing..

wmtire would make Hank Hill proud with his knowledge of propane!

I40 wasn't too bad. Some spots that hadn't been scraped yet, but nothing major.

52 was still covered, but manageable.

Checking out a sweet mess ridge 376 now. I like!

Made it back from the show a few hours ago. Didn't see any toy haulers that we wanted to look at. Mostly bumper pulls, with few Cherokee's mixed, one XLR, and two Grand Designs.

We did see a Highland Ridge Mesa Ridge that we really like. Worked some numbers that we kinda like. Came home to research a bit. Two things that are really bugging me about it, and I'm not sure how big of an issue they are.

1. 4 point LCI electric leveling. I'm spoiled, and love the 6 point hydraulic. That isn't even an option when ordering.
2. The Accu-Slide cable slide mechanisms. I don't know much about them, so researching now.

While this wasn't a toy hauler, it serves the same purpose that we were looking for. Lots and lots of "exterior" storage. We also like the front bunk house / living room.

I know this is a forest river forum, but I also know it has lots of activity from folks that do or have had other makes. I would appreciate any info you guys may share on the Mesa Ridge 376FBH and the Slides / 4-point leveling.

2 things:
I went to the site and didn't see a mention of a sale. Perhaps it's over?
On the V13, the remote keypad is attached with double stick tape. Any concerns about the tape failing and the keypad falling off?

TIA

Only by the evidence presented it seems to be a crazy, nuts verdict.

Thanks! Retried the site and again didn't get the sale info. Then I noticed that my browser was indicating blocked content. Clicked to allow the content and got the sale notice.

Finished installing the JT Strongarms on the Chappy... super easy! All the holes were pretty drilled in the frame... took maybe an hour and a half.

I ordered one for the Sandpiper. I'll probably get an extra fob later. Thanks for pointing out sale.

We drove 45 min out to the dealer (where our unit was getting fixed) to walk through and make sure she was handling winter alright. Last year I had a bulb seal go and that caused water damage (what it's there for in the first place)

Found out work had been completed, but unfortunately still too much snow around here to take it home and get it tucked into its rightful spot next to the garage. Only 18 more weekends til Memorial Day weekend! Hopefully we can start using it sooner than that though!

Went on the roof and touched up the factory Dicor caulking which I thought was a bit lacking.
