On our last outing, I put the vacuum breaker in the convenience center. As suspected, when the water shut off, I had water everywhere in there.

I'm going to move the vacuum breaker to the outside...

This hasn't been mentioned, and some may disagree, but the Harbor Freight clicker wrenches are cheap, and accurate enough for what we are trying to accomplish here.

Thanks for the reply!

I guess that's one good thing about our 5er. We have most of our stuff stored behind the axle, because that's where our basement is.

Is there a list somewhere of known models that exhibit this issue?

Are some models more prone than others?

Is it more common on units with two front slides?

On FB, I've heard that people...

I haven't done it yet, but I think that the cable will come off of the disconnect and go to the battery. It should be long enough.

Your solution, however, with the separate breaker, or even...

Yeah, and that's what it does. Most of the time, I would like to keep the fridge off, but have everything else on, and with this system, you can't.

I could look at moving mine to the front wall side, and turn it so I could see it. If I were to do that, though, I would have to make sure that the power cords are long enough to get over there. ...

This is what my fear is as well, that it might be too much for the 150A breaker, and most likely too much for the wire going to the breaker, and from the breaker to the disconnect. That's fixable in...

Not for sure what the definition of "comparatively level" is, but I would say that it can be off quite a bit, and still auto level.
