We pull the slides in and set the stat to 50. In the past, we set it to 40. We decided it took longer than we liked to warm the trailer from 40. We do this between weekend stays.

You can hook up and pull away at any angle that you like. Be mindful of the swing behind the axles when you do so. I always have a spotter when pulling out onto the road from a site.

I thought the same thing about the twin sinks in our 3402RL. We have actually fount it to be quite useful when both of us are getting ready to go somewhere or both of us using them in the morning.

264,488 miles on my 2008 2500HD D/A. Not retired yet, but I'd take off for California tomorrow with it (if I actually had a desire to go there of course).

Has to be a source for voltage drop somewhere. You can read 12 volts on a single strand of wire. Something has pulled the voltage down.

Just goes to show how greedy some shops are. They'll push rotates on SRW all day long. Throw a little extra work in and it suddenly becomes "unnecessary".
