4 new jack pads. I couldn't find these anywhere local, had to get them on Amazon. http://amzn.to/2oleuNO

They are much better than the cheepo "broken" ones I bought at Camping World. And better than the originals I made from 3/4x12 pine boards doubled up. They broke too, but took a lot longer than the junk ones from CW. -Bill

This fuse pack "Again", the DW put them away somewhere, never to be found again. I seem to be able to blow a fuse at least once a month.

CW is basically a rip off on everything they carry not just jack pads. You can always do better on E Bay or Amazon. Better prices and better quality.

xfactors

Bought and installed the Morryde XFactors. Trying to stave off any frame issues like the guy below with a 2014 Big horn, like mine a heavy unit. The one camp we go to on a regular bases I have to do a tight 90 degree turn to get it in the site and the wheels really bent outward.

Did you have interference with a the black iron propane line or galley drain? I have the center one in ours and two more waiting. The front one will be installed in a couple weeks after I move the propane line but the rear one - doubtful as tha gally drain is right in line with the spring hangers.

2000 P53 with a tilt up dash

A .29 cent piece of tan felt from Walmart. I cut a couple of 2" strips and put it under the front and side of the plastic dash where it was touching the base dash and causing a squeak that sounded just like it was coming from the windshield lower corner.

Watch the spring hangers in this video at the very beginning then jump to the 2:59 second mark. This is just driving around what do you think those spring hangers look like when your backing in a real tight turn? at one point the hangers and frame move a 1/2 inch or more. Move the pipe at all costs.

Thanks (I think!)
Frightening. I guess that I knew that there was something going on with those flimsy hangers but didn't think it was that bad. Luckily I already have a MORryde suspension, but can't install a Correct Track as my front a/c is already at 13'4" That front X-Factor will go on along with some home made welded up out of square tubing for the rear since the drain really can't be moved. Gotta crawl under it today to scope out what I need for piping changes too.

Oh well - what else is there when you are retired except find more projects
