Got to tell you though, those sleeves don't last forever. They are FAR better than the nylon crap Keystone uses for new rigs, but be sure and grease them at least yearly. I found I had two bronze...

Our 2010 didn't have any folding ones when we bought it (should have insisted the dealer give us some!), so we just picked up a couple Costco ones. Not the same color, but they work fine.

I've a Triminic in the 5er, but that Amazon one looks interesting. We use a separate deep cycle battery for lighting and fans (also recharging phones!) at art & craft shows we vend at and something...

Why people don't think the ones making these don't know what they're talking about is beyond me, but whichever way floats your boat will work. I do what Dexter says to do.

Doesn't matter who you have do it, you had better know where the person lives that did it as there's absolutely no telling if they have a clue as to what they're doing. I do mine myself.

Amazing! They've changed how the indicators work (maybe for the fun of it?). On our 'ancient' 2010, turning the gas switch on lights it the same as turning the electric switch on. There's no...

Some use pizza stones, but we do the same as Lynwood - a leftover 12 x 12 floor tile from renovating our sticks & bricks bathroom.

You don't mention that HDT's turn better than pickups. That's the biggest irritant to me - don't mind the length and width, but needing a half mile to turn around is a b*tch.

Ditto. Only issue is unhooking and pulling forward about ten feet to get the exhaust away from the front of your 5er. A Wallymart 30 amp extension cord works fine.

Very true. I went with four batteries and 400 watts of solar as we seldom go more than one to three days dry camping. This has worked well as long as we're reasonably careful. Still can run a TV...
