Here's an idea:

Go straight to bed and sleep it off.

You need to install 2 of these. I may know where you can get 1.

This should be available soon for all motorhomes

This thread discusses the issues in depth. It should keep you busy for a while or put you to sleep. In any case, two aspirin or a double shot of brandy will help the problem.

One the wingnut adjuster fails it may cause the the muffler bearing to seize.

Holy Moly, a RV buddy just had the exact same issue. He used a new Vernaztle centered directly on the edge of the Fenagin pin.
Hope this helps you get back on the road.

This did help with a followup question I have about my Turbo Encabulator. I will upgrade to version 2 as soon as it is available at Camping World.

I relocated my blinker fluid reservoir to behind the firewall director preventing the issue stated. I don't have a Henweigh, where might I find one?
