and as far as the trad'n... not so sure about the cheeper... I would have been way money ahead to have kept the 2013 that I traded for the 2014
FR3, that I traded for the 2014 winnabago tribute, that I traded for the 2014 excursion dp. that I traded fro the 2015 Itasca class c, that I just traded for the 2015 winnabago 26he

I have no problem sending them down the road kick'n rocks..

and if the new 6 speed pans out.... guess whats gonna happen

they worked on my last 4 motorhomes... no problem..they turn lock to lock no problem..

trust me. if they were a problem I would not put them on...

bridjit.com/ try this for your driveway approach. Looks like it would work.
