Yes I understand. I've measured the power needs of the A/C with a power meter and it is interesting that when cool (about 80 deg) the A/C draws about 12 amps at 115 VAC. When it is 95 and the A/C...

Yep one step at a time is all I can manage. I put the A/C starting capacitor in today. It helped with the starting load on house power but did not let me start with the Ryobi 2400i generator. Oh...

where Do You Keep Your Guitar

Our last trailer was a 1964 Holiday Trav'ler 17 ft long. Basically the same size as our 1709T Hi-Lo but a foot narrower. That old trailer had an overhead bunk; it wasn't much good for sleeping, but...

Bean Sock Seal

This idea came from others here in the forum...so thank you to the many that have done this. Where the bottom door doesn't quite seal to the trailer side, these will fill the gap. No sewing needed:...

Re-dedicated Wardrobe

Here's an idea for a very light-weight and easy-to-build conversion to the wardrobe closet we did in our 1709T. This started out as a "concept" using the PO's failed attempt to make drawers (they...

Turns out this is simply a door sweep of the cheapest variety and box stores sell something quite similar. Interesting though that Hi-Lo mounted it backward so the sweep seal goes under the door to...

I think I'm good at 500 lb tongue weight and we travel pretty light so I don't expect to reach the trailer's max weight. Pity what Hi-Lo did to your axle position initially...pretty irresponsible...

Bottom door seal

What have owners by using for the bottom half door seal? The very bottom of the lower door. Looks like a thin flap that simply scrapes against the threshold to seal underneath the door. I was...

Hi-Lo 1709T Weights

I thought I'd post the measured weights on our recently purchased 1709T. The seller thought it weighed 2497 lbs. I thought not, but didn't disagree on the phone. When we got to his house I found...

I like the idea of a micro in a box and then putting it on the refrigerator.

I wonder if anyone has added drop-down shelves to their Hi-Lo. Sort of like a drop leaf table.
