and very important to me, I brought my bathroom scale along and my tongue weight came in at 285lbs! So Im very happy!

Thanks for everything Aaron (including pointing out dragon vaporz)
I'm glad it was a good trip and opportunity.
Look forward to the pics.

Thanks for the kind words Deryk we just wanted to do what was right and it was nice to meet you face to face. Now I really know who I'm talking with. Happy camping and let me know what you do about a case for your new toy

Parkliner battery box

Deryk, certainly found ourselves thinking about you as you and your Parkliner made the trek down to NC. So glad you had a safe trip. Look forward to seeing your pictures. So glad that you got to stay in your PL on the loading dock. We stayed in Danville when we were there in Sept. wonderful to hear that you had a positive experience. BL and Bev

Hey girls! Would you mind telling me where you stayed in Danville? If you don't want to do it here, PM me. We may need a place near Gibsonville in May.

I am glad Deryk made the trek and other than getting work done on his ParkLiner, made it down and back okay! I'm looking forward to pics as well.

Frank, when we went down to PL in Sept we stayed at the Comfort Inn located 100 Tower Rd Danville,Va. It was great to hear Deryk was able to stay in his PL. We needed lodging that was pet friendly and budget friendly. Took us 45 mins from PL to Danville. Frank if you do happen to stay in Danville and are at all interested check out Millionaire's Row located in center of town. It really must have been during the height of textile industry.
Deryk, sorry to hear about your computer crashing. We look forward to seeing pics of your new battery box whenever you can post them. Happy Thanksgiving everyone! BL & Bev

Ok, sorry for the delay.... I like the nice clean look, and while down there, Aaron and his crew added the bypass kit for my water heater, as well as 2 drains at the lowest spot of my ParkLiner for draining the lines right by the sink, and running to my shower. They also added a drain for the water tank! Im very happy for the upgrade! I did get real lucky, I slid the propane tanks forward just the right amount to install the brackets for my wdh they were exactly in the right place lol...the battery box fit perfectly in there.

I haven't reweighed the tongue with the generator inside yet... need to do that the next time I take a trip.

Boy your frame certainly has a lot of holes drilled, close to 2 dozen holes I can count. I'd be leery of adding any more without some kind of reinforcement.

That is a very nice looking battery box they gave you, Deryk. Looks like it will do the job nicely.

I am only a civil engineer, and do not consider myself suitably qualified to give an opinion on the holes drilled in your frame. So I will leave it to the mechanical engineers in the group to comment whether the number, size and location of those bolt holes in your frame could possibly be an issue.

Deryk, how many new trailers were in production while you were there? Any idea? Curious minds would like to know!

Boy, sounds like you did GOOD! We can't wait to get down there. Only about 6 more months...

Great to see you on the forum Cameron!! Would love to see what trailer is being worked on the FB page and given a # to look forward to.

I was asking tire size because I was wondering if after widening the wheel well size, ParkLiner was keeping the same size tire or going back to a 15 inch. (If I am right that it originally came with a 15 inch?)

Thank you.
