  1. So the top of the receiver opening is 22 inchs? Add 2-1/2" for the ball and your at 24-1/2" to the top of the ball. My LE II is 23-1/2" to the top of the coupler socket and 600# will drop my 3500 3/4". If your F350 sag is similar, seems to me a 0-1"rise would be a good starting point.
  2. Have you considered a front mount receiver?
  3. Sorry. My comment was based on the adapter/extender you linked in the earlier post. These are in fact limiting.
  4. Given the age of your LEII, and your location, I'd tow it back to Hohenwald and have them replace the toilet. In the long run, you'll save both time and aggravation.
  5. These receiver adapters/extenders limit the hitch capacity to 3500# so using one with 7000# GTW is out of the question.
  6. I believe they started switching over within 2020 production. It also requires a second coax but the connector is a Motorola style so you'd have to adapt. I was thinking in terms of a replacement for my Winegard Roadstar which only has the one RG 6. For my LEII, it would be more difficult to pull an additional even though it could go directly to the radio. The Air360 is actually smaller than it looks and imo wouldn't be too obtrusive, going from a Kingdome. But, it sounds like the Magnadyne may be your best bet.
  7. I missed your original post on this. A few things to consider: The Shakespeare mount may not hold up on an RV installation. Best to check with their product support. The Glomex line of omnis look nicer and have more robust mounts. These are popular with the go-fasts. I believe Hodges carries them. Seems to me the Air360 is a good choice but it requires a second coax for the AM/FM antenna section. Course you'll also need an ethernet cable for the wifi option if included. The footprint may cover the Kingdome mounting holes, making for a cleaner install.

  9. Practically, payload is Gross Vehicle Weight Rating minus Curb Weight. Technically, it is whatever the Tire and Loading placard on the driver's door jamb says after: The combined weight of occupants and cargo should never exceed In your case, the 2017 Jeep Trailhawk CW is published as 4869. Based on the 6500 GVWR, max payload should be 1631 minus the weight of factory optional equipment like the rock rails and engine block heater. Don't try to resolve the difference between this calculation and the figure on the placard because the placard calculation was determined by the legal departmen
  10. When given a choice between a 30 or 50, I always check the condition of the receptacles and use the better one, or the 50 if it's a tossup. 50s generally provide a better connection and will induce less voltage loss under load.
  11. Just stirring the pot. I usually open mine for air whenever draining. Truma does call it a "Test Lever"
  12. So manually opening the valve only tests whether it will re-close, not if it will release automatically under high pressure.🤨
  13. In ECO mode the circulation pump, and burner, won't come on unless the internal temperature is below 41degrees. In Comfort mode the threshold is 102 so what you experienced could be normal operation under the circumstances.
  14. I think the dimensions in the Measurement Index are for the earlier version basket. Look in the University for the 2018 LEII Owners Manual. Page 122 is a dimension drawing of the newer style.
  15. Thanks or the bailout Bill. I was fat-fingering the post on my phone and couldn't elaborate. David, in an earlier post you mentioned removing the top panel so I just assumed you'd be familiar with what is involved. Let me know if you'd like more details. There's not a lot going on with that board beyond the switches that are prone to failure.
