    Oops. Our 2007 Sunseeker's automatic step ran into a small 4x4 sticking out of the ground, through no fault of its own. Repair price $1000+. Any suggestions on a cheaper fix? Meanwhile we will use a stepstool.

      Angie907 I just received a new sales brochure from camping world. They have new auto steps much cheaper than that.

        Scotty The insurance adjuster told us the manufacture date was 2002!!!

      bob213 That's seems hard to believe although you may be correct.  Are you sure you read the DOT code correctly? I can see them being 2012's but 12 years old?
    • Scotty
      bob213 If they really are 2002"s I'd be contacting Prime Time and raising stink for putting you in danger!

      Wncol Yah, threaten law suite.  They are liable for the damage to your rv and real new tires at least. 
    • Scotty
      Angie907 The tires on your rig were probably newer than the replacements. Someone has some explaining.

    Hi All We currently have a 21ft Microlite which we have had for last 7 years. Now looking at a Rockwood Ultralite 2604WS because we like the floor plan a lot. Anyone out there with one who want to share how they have made out with it. Pro/Cons?

    Hello fellow FR RV owners. We are fairly new to this and have a question as to when to test the air pressure in the tires? Do you test with the trailer loaded or unloaded or does it make a difference?

      Bob 'n Anne-Marie Buy a good TPMS system - we like the TST 509 System. This way, every morning when you get ready to roll, fire up the TPMS and check all of your tires without the hassle of checking each individual tire. The bonus? Well, that is the real reason of having a...  more

        Lyn and Sharon We do have one. Brand new. Put air in to max load listed on tires several days ago. But not fully loaded. Going to check this am using Tpms to see if it is all copacetic. Just didn't know if we should have been loaded or not. Good info. Thanks.
