Just installed my power RV Lock bought a while ago. Fit right in, no mods needed. Had to play with the striker plate some because it was very tight to lock. Maybe after it wears in a little might have to hit it again if it doesn't loosen up some more. I like all aspects of it but think an indicator light that stays on for a couple of seconds would be nice to indicate it HAS indeed locked. The beeps and or motor sound might be hard to hear in certain circumstances if using the FOB and not right next to the lock.

Can't wait to go camping and give it a go.

cleaned out the shamrock. oiled the bathroom fan(it was squeaking),started to take it down got all the screws out then saw that the screen will pop right out dooooh. my kitchen slide seal was popped off the backside at the top and was full of grey sticky stuff?? looked over at the front side and saw that FR used eternabond patch on the slide top corner(don't know why) so the sticky stuff was the adhesive WD40 and rag wiped it off. put another piece of eternabond on top corner then siliconed the seals.
then covered it till April

still did not put awning poles on.

A few days ago I removed, cleaned and resealed the shower skylight. (Note to self. Do not remove inner dome while replacing outer dome. Screwdriver can drop through and punch hole in shower floor)

Pulled the curbside wheels and hubs off for the first time. Plenty of grease in there from the factory, repacked bearings, going to get seals later today and put this side back together before I do the other side. Also installed my electronic entry lock, I think it's going to be great.

Is that the one with the BlueTec Diesel? How does it do power and Moving wise?

Friends are looking at a Diesel next after having Class C with Gas?

Yes to the blue tech and it handles my Lund boat very well. Getting around 14 mpg.

Would you believe I laid the inner dome in the shower and the screwdriver punched thru it but not the shower floor. God takes care of us ignorant people. Lol
Only have to buy a new inner dome.
