Just a thought.

Wonderful tips have been given. DH told me to throw this out for consideration. Your lifting switch could be bad. DH had to replace ours on our former 1990 25ft..Classic HiLo.

Be very careful about adding weight to the bumper area.

Adding weight can throw your tow balance off. I'm sure others will add to the advice you need. I have seen our HiLo dealer weld a bike rack to the back of a Classic(heavier) HiLo. I know this isn't...

Just a thought

On my 1990 HiLo we had a leak on the emergency window. We took the window out and resealed with butyl tape around the rim. While the window is out you can see if your wall layers have any water...

Got to love the advice you have been given.

It is also recommended that when you get your trailer fully loaded for a trip you get it weighed. As other have mentioned you need real world weights that are most likely over what is posted on the...

I spoke with the tech Randy at best converter. Have the model# of your old converter. This is a good time to upgrade. Sometimes the converter you have is no longer made. Many rv owners from Airforums...

Welcome to the forum. I would highly suggest that you take out all your windows and reseal. Their is a few back posts on how to do this. The butyl tape you would use is far better than the old black...

Hind sight is a great thing.

If you put plastic on the ground you could have rolled it up and thrown the plastic away. The only down side is slipping on the plastic and getting the gooey mess on your shoes. Glad the 3m wheel...

Thanks for all the replies.

J&R wasn't familiar with Lexel caulk. The Master weld 620 is an elastomeric adhesive sealant. It's description leads me to believe it is a premium caulk.
