Tom, it looks like the arm will interfere with the spare tire if you lower the front landing gears anymore. I've been to many sites already where I would need the front a lot lower than what you have now.


Thanks,
Dave...

Good eye because you are correct.

My revised setup procedure is to loosen (lower) the spare tire a few inches to create some slack and avoid interference or put any undue stress on the arms. I cinch it back up tight when we leave. Only adds a few seconds to the overall setup process.

Short of breaking out the welder, I don't see an easy way to move the spare tire back the few inches it needs. I don't really want to carry it in my truck, nor do I want to buy a holder to move it to the bumper as that will interfere with my bike racks, so I may end up reorganizing the camper basement a bit so I can store it in there out of the way somehow.

I was thinking about relocating my spare. I think its a bad spot, and the stem on mine at least is against the basement, so I cant even check the pressure without dropping the tire.
I think the basement is an ideal spot for it, as long as you arent a pack rat.

Added a bottle opener to the outside fridge, and I also picked up a telescoping flag pole for the rear hitch. I got a lot of inquiries about the flag pole and the light on top while up at the NASCAR race in NH this past weekend, so figured I'd share the links too:

Link for flag pole
Link for flag pole hitch holder
Link for LED light on top of flag pole

They look good Tom! For the Flag Pole, we went with the 12' kit from Flag Pole Buddy, which attaches to the ladder instead of the hitch. Yours is pretty nice too.

Thanks. I considered the ladder mount version but was worried about how much stress it would put on the ladder in high winds. Having now seen quite a few of them last weekend holding up just fine in 20mph winds, I think I was a bit overcautious.

Ah well, live and learn as they say.
