I only pulled it far enough to hook to my generator. Did you get yours de-winterized? There are 2 covers under the dinette seating which will require a number 2 philips screw drive to remove the 2 screw holding each cover on. One for the holding tank and one for the hot water tank. Make sure the bypass valves are closed for the systems to operate correctly thru the water pump. The only thing that I didn't like about the trailer after I bought it was the noise from the waterpump. I think that Jayco could have done a better job insulating the sound. Also, if you have the aluminum rims......check it for corrosion. I just found a little corrosion near the center hub on the passenger side....I will be towing it to the dealer for rim replacement.

Great tips. Thanks

Different TV manf have different specs on viewing from a side angle. Mine is the 22-inch VIZIO HDTV lcd monitor. It does pretty good viewing from the side. On mine the problem is up and down viewing. I have to point it down more to see it real good. My mount allows for this adjustment. If your mount just connects direclty to the four screws in the back I think they sell an adapter that you can move up and down with.

Check with WALMART as they have a whole wall full of mounting adapters. I was thinking of something like this to use with your present wall adapter.

This adapter would make for a great quick disconnect for your mounted TV as well. Loosen the two screws in the slot and remove the two other screws then you could just lift out the light weight monitor if you wanted to take it down for travel or storage modes.

Thanks for the advice on the mounts - you are right, the TV is just not that high quality in regards to viewing angles - anything other than straight on is not even worth watching.
