In the midst of our first real outing with the trailer, I have a couple questions for y'all...
1) What is the orifice for on the ceiling just in front of the slide when it's opened? Looks like a jack of some flavor. Something plug into that, like a light? We got no accessories with the trailer that look like they should attach there.
2) What are the little handle-like things on the ceiling of the slide, near the front?
(yes, these are things we should have noticed and asked during PDI, but we overlooked them ;-))
3) Has anyone modified the cubbies above the 'headboard' of the king bed? We have a three inch thick topper, I hit my head (not too hard) a couple times last night, and I still found the bed to be too hard to be comfortable, so I'm going to make it thicker. Safe to assume those cubbies are not structurally important, just tacked on? I was thinking of shortening them by about half the height and making them into some kind of shelf instead of a closed cabinet. Not sure what we'll end up putting there anyway.
So far I really like the trailer. Pulling it 300 miles yesterday was a real chore, but that was because we dragged it down the Columbia River Gorge with quartering-tailwinds in the 20-40 MPH range, so we were getting pushed around a fair bit. Maybe not worth white-knuckling it, but this is my first trailer so I don't have a good idea of what normal movement is, and where it becomes worrisome. When there wasn't appreciable wind gusts, we cruised along at 60-65 and couldn't hardly tell the trailer was there. And the twin turbo V6 on the F150 is fantastic for power -- went over Blewitt Pass without even trying. Not exactly the Rockies, but still.
Once I figure out how to make the bed comfortable for me, I'm going to be a happy camper.
