Don't know if we'll buy ANY brand new today. Biggest reason is quality and close behind that is the stupid dark colors makers seem to think are so great. Third is that we like having movable...

I've always put both on when possible. Gives close to endless hot water (at least both my wife and I can take showers right after each other).

IF you were rotating your wheel, grease should have been coming back out around where you were pumping it in. If you weren't rotating your wheel, you may have blown a seal.

This is true, but it's also an electric motor and will suck a single (or even two of them) battery dry quickly unless you're hooked to shore power.

The only way to completely get rid of movement is to put the trailer on jacks and/or blocks - a lot of them. Short of that, there's at least two triangulating setups that will cut it down a whole...
