Yep my 6.4 Hemi stickered at $53K and a Cummins diesel would have pushed it to $62K. I managed to get them down $10K, otherwise I'd have still be towing at the limits of my previous half ton. We...

Had a similar issue. It leaked onto the top of the slide (while in) and dripped to both ends. I ended up realizing the trailer was canted to the entry door side and exposed the top slide seal side to...

Congrats.

When you say power jacks, do you mean the (4) scissor jacks or just the front jack? A power front jack is a must. If you got the dealer to install power scissor jacks that's pretty...
