  1. Thanks for the responses I really appreciate it. Larry
  2. We have finalized our LE 2 order. Now I am looking for advice on accessories for the trailer. I am planning on getting the Andersen ultimate trailer gear package for leveling, chocking and pads for stabilizer jacks. Would I need anything else? I have read that a water filter is a good idea? Do you have suggestions for a water filter. I have also read that you should use a polarity and voltage tester to make sure you have safe power at campgrounds? Suggestions for one of those. I understand you get a 30 to 15 amp converter plug with the trailer. Would you ever need a 50 to 30 amp converter plug? In looking at some campgrounds it looks like if they have 50 amp service they also have 30 amp service. We are getting a rear hitch on the back of the trailer for a bike rack. I have been looking at various models of that but many of them specifically say not for use on back of an RV or trailer. Does someone have suggestions of a bike rack for 2 bikes? I have read that some campgrounds require a sewer hose support. Suggestions for one of those. I did print off a list of tools, fuses and other things you should have. Is there any other things we should be thinking about getting? Thanks, Larry
  3. Thanks for all the replies and information. Good food for thought. Larry
  4. My wife and I have ordered a LE 2 twin model which we will be picking up in early May. I have some questions about options that we need to finalize by early Feb. I was planning to get 4 lead acid batteries to start and then when those die I would consider getting lithium batteries. Lithium batteries seem crazy expensive. I would think you could convert the connections from 4 batteries to the 2 lithium batteries, is that correct? We have decided against solar panels since most of our camping will be done at established campgrounds and in Wisconsin there are many cloudy days plus most campsites are shaded so we wouldn't get much benefit from them. We did order a plug for a solar panel so we could add a suitcase panel if we go somewhere where we would get lots of sunshine. My main question is getting 30 vs 20 lb propane tanks. The 20 lb tanks are more available and lighter to lift. The 30 lb tanks are bigger and would last longer. I do enjoy skiing in the winter and might think of staying in the trailer on a ski trip usually for 3-5 days. I am trying to figure out how much propane you need. I have read the forums and there seems to be a wide range of posts about how long propane will last heating with the furnace. One post said that with temps in the 20-30's you will use 4-5 gal of propane per day which would be a whole 20 lb tank plus. On the other end of the spectrum another post 6 days with overnight lows on the 20's used about 7.5 gal of propane. Another option would be to carry a third 20 lb tank in the truck bed. I would appreciate thoughts of those who have more experience. Thanks in advance for your help. Larry
