Same here. I limit time on the roof. I do as much as I can from a ladder or scaffolding. The roof is cheaply constructed - flexing, seam and joint separating, TPO tearing, staples dislodging and...

DW and I are eligible for full soc. benefits at 70. We'll see how long we can hold on. It may not be worth it. I am sure that's what the two-headed viper hopes we decide.

This is why I went with MORryde. LCI/Lippert and the RV manufacturers are the culprits to begin with - why go to them for any product or service that another quality manufacturer can provide? I...

Yes. The LCI Equa-Flex is still decent (good rubber). I just did the MORryde wet bolts, did not replace the Equa-Flex with a MORryde 3000. The new bolts with beefier shackle straps firm it up a...

If you can, I would take wabirch's approach and do your own measurement. I say this as one who only refers to a dealer for recalls and major repairs (Major). The less my vehicles are monkeyed with,...

I agree with this. I use our 1500 as a commuter. It does a solid job with our Feather 23RBM. When we go bigger and I no longer need a commuter, I will be looking at 2500 or 3500 diesels; it will...
