I already did the hot water tank bypass, just need help now with bottom drains!

How many trailers in production when you were there Deryk?

One was nearly done, one was getting ready to be put onto a trailer and they were working in the molds so that is a 3rd. But Aaron said they have been doing alot of battery box upgrades and it all takes time away from production.

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.
Hi Deryk,

The pictures look like they did really good work for you. Maybe a silly question, but what are the black half round things between the propane tank and battery box? I know its not a cupholder.

Nice Battery box. Did they put a couple of drain oles in the bottom?

The battery switches are available at Harbor Freight, on sale this week.

Small holes in the frame should have little effect on beam strength.

Deryk, what led to your decision to install a WDH? I was told I would not need one, and then we bought a used one (as you know), #006. Towing #006 from NJ back home I had no issues at all with sway, even in heavy wind.

Thanks,

Frank

Thanks Norm, there are either 6 or 8 ventholes in the battery box, so that problem should be solved...Im gonna have to head over to HF and take a look.

Frank, my Rav4 has a soft rear end and sagged alot with the ParkLiner on it(sagged with my gypsy vardo sized teardrop that had a close to 200lb tongue weight too) The wdh keeps the receiver from being like 9 inches off the road lol (maybe 11 now heh)

Oh, okay, I get it. We tried Tim & Rita's with Gail's new Escape, and the back of the Escape dropped like 1/2" with the ParkLiner attached. We dragged it back from NJ with the F150, and I don't think my truck knew anything was back there...

Thanks!

Frank

yeah I dont feel the weight of the ParkLiner while towing but its just the way Rav4's are...I read up on the owners forum, tried air bags in the coil springs for extra lift....wasnt impressed so I ordered the wdh and it was setup for an anti sway bar so added one too. Usually I dont have the anti sway bar tightened...only when its real windy.
