Those jacks are pneumatic jacks. The fronts are 15 ton and the backs are 30 ton.

They will stabilize it before they go home so that I can stay in it.

I'll post pictures later of what they did.

Screen On and Screen Off pics. I used whatever ratchet straps would fit. Most sites don't have this much concrete.

Yowza, that's a lot of propane just for the fridge. We'll run the fridge + water heater + cooking on propane for weeks at a time and don't use a full 30 lb. cylinder!

I'm betting they maybe meant a 20 LB. tank... not 20 gallons!

I agree- but even a 20 lb. tank being eaten up seems excessive.

We decided against salon bunks due to sometimes needing to send them for a nap mid-day if they're being a-holes. With bunks, they're typically adjacent to the master bedroom and there are times (usually at night) where I'd like Momma and I to have some privacy and not be "overheard".

Plus, there was the cost- it seemed the rigs I liked were in the $200k and up ballpark. I just couldn't justify the cost.

So, class A mohos fell off the consideration list.

Nice Vengeance, we have the same model! We don't have the auto level system, looks like that really came in handy for this. I see you are upgrading to 8 lug axles. We have the 6 lug as well, I'm seriously shocked the axles are so small for our RVs. Do you plan on selling the wheels? Reason I'm asking, I would like to change my stamped steel spare for another matching.

DW bought some organizational items while I re-installed the TPS senors and finally installed the TPS repeater.

Sometimes wrong words are funny with their whole other meaning.

Friends of ours used to hang wind chimes from the fifth wheel hitch until another friend informed them that it was quite the indicator of what Mommy + Daddy were up to!

Now that's funny! Wonder how long they waited before passing on that tidbit of information?

Knowing all involved- I don't think it was "waited" more so was "mustered up the courage to say something"! Pretty sheepish bunch.
