I use this to raise the bike carrier above the tail lights and away from the back compartment.


We use a Cuisinart grill, model CGG-059 with a 5 lb. propane tank.
The small Blackstone griddle also fits but not at the same time.  Don has other things in there but that is his domain so I can't tell you much more.

I've heard (not confirmed) that Phoenix and Hoosier Cruiser are having some legal issues with each other.

Remove the 3 screws on inside portion of the latch, take the inside cover off, then use a small flathead screwdriver to push the latch back.

Call Direct TV and ask them.

Again, why that steel tube is there, I do not know.  But for whatever reason, the odds against drilling into the floor and centering it exactly as your picture shows is very unlikely.  So I still opt for that is an intential placement of the hole  through the tubing.

Also, that steel looks a bit thin to be "structural"

Depends on where your receiver is.  I have a 2551 and run the cables (2 of them) for my satellite receiver (Dish TV) into the top of the cabinet on the passenger side front.  The system comes with a plate that has 2 covered slots for the wires and is about 4" in diameter.  That keeps the wires flat and covers the hole in the roof.  I used Dicor Lap Sealant and zero leaks.

In the back, I ran another cable thru the roof into the wardrobe closet in the bathroom.  That cable goes to my cell booster antenna.  The booster came with a similar small cover that also got covered with Dicor.  Zero leaks in 8 years. I used the self leveling Dicor rather than the stiff caulk type of Dicor

To be honest, that looks intentional.  It is centered on that metal "strut" and may well be designed to keep the table column from loosening with the bumps and twists that occur while driving with the table still set in the hole.

All covers are heavy and require you to get on the roof and also on the ground a bit underneath to get straps connected to both sides.  It really should be done by 2 people.  Camping World sells covers.  They aren't custom fitted but are based on the length and type of camper.

I would suggest you ask at a local RV dealer if they know anyone who would put on and remove the cover for you.  Since you have full body paint, you do not have to worry about fading and a place like Blue Beacon Truck wash will get any tree sap off the vehicle if you wished to leave it uncovered.

My PC is in a storage yard a few miles from here so no, I don't have the brand name.  Your insurance company should be able to assist and so should any auto glass company.  I am sure they are available from Ford, if no where else.

Elite Auto glass (used to be SsfeLite) has them.

General Discussion / Re: Shredded Grey Tank Insulation
« on: January 22, 2024, 07:15:05 am »
For what it's worth... I simply removed the insulation on both Grey and black tanks.  In MY mind, the insulation really serves no purpose.  That's because the drain lines aren't insulated.  I have been on a few trips where it got as cold as 7 degrees and the drain lines still froze even with the tank heaters on.   Thus, I couldn't drain the tanks anyway.  Once it got above 20 degrees, then the drain lines were OK, but that was almost 1,000 miles down the road.    That was with the insulation in pace.

The tank heaters still work, they are under the insulation, so removing the insulation doesn't matter.

That's my view anyway.  Others views may vary.


Agree on latchfix.com.  Works great!

We purchase our TRX 1781 last spring and have had several trips with temperatures in the high 30's to mid 40's and now problems.  We are looking at doing some traveling soon (February) which will most likely have us seeing below freezing temperatures (20's?).  We have the tank heaters and of course plan on turning them on as well as the water heater.  A little concern about the outside shower head-will either remove, insulate, or both.

This is our first RV so we are a bit inexperienced.  Any advice or comments out there?

Do NOT 'boondock' overnight, always have 120v pedestal power for overnight. Those tank warmers draw a fair amount of power and can easily draw down your house batteries!
