Thanks for the link to the door gasket—I ordered 2 btw.
Our maiden voyage last weekend was a success. My wife loves the new trailer.
Observations from the first trip in our 1940ltd:
-even though I had the battery plugged into my charger/tender beforehand, it only lasted about 30hrs. I used the external courtesy light for about 2hrs and charged my iphone with the usb port one time. Its the original group 24 deep cycle, so I was already planning to upgrade...I’m researching different options right now, including a 100-150watt solar unit..which I was also planning to buy regardless.
-the roof vent cover was super brittle and I accidentally broke off a piece. UV damage due to being stored in the sun in central CA (visalia). So I researched it and ordered a new vent cover (link below in case it helps others in the future). https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B002U...b_b_prod_image
Side note: I already ordered a nice cover for the trailer and a few other things. Next up is wheels. I really only need new tires, but since it costs as much to replace the treads as buying a new set of mounted wheels & tires, I’m going to replace the wheels. I did this with my old Coleman and went up to 13” rims...looking to do the same with my 1940ltd. Part of me wants to get 15” wheels and flip the leaf springs/axel, but that’s kind of overkill. I don’t need big fancy wheels, but the stock ST145 R12’s are too narrow IMO. Pulling it with a Ram 1500 crew cab it felt a little squirrly when I got up to ~65mph (I generally stay below 60 otherwise). So I’m looking at 13” or maybe 14”...
