    NorthTrail 31QUBH Suspension

    Difference in makes??

    My experience with North Trail and Mallard is that while they are similar, Mallard may have fewer features standard and Camping World may be less willing to order / special order a Mallard than a North Trail. example. I did find one Camping World Dealer that was also a North Trail dealer that...

    How and where to install solar panel?

    With my rooftop installation snow and cold has not been too much of an issue. I remove some snow off part of one panel if over a couple inches to make sure the batteries keep charging, the dark color of the panels heat up pretty quick and the panels will all be clear in a couple of sunny days...

    How and where to install solar panel?

    I installed my flexible solar panels directly to the EPDM roof. I think I used butyl rubber sealant under the panel to the roof. The stuff I used was high temperature rated and listed as EDPM compatible along with plastics and other materals. After several days of drying, I sealed the edges...

    new solar install - question for those who installed panels on roof

    It really depends on the type of solar panel that you have also. My panels generate pretty good power in cloudy conditions and more reduced power in rainy and shaded conditions including covered with some snow.. How much power depends on panel type, configuration and weather conditions, etc..

    GM See Through Trailer Camera

    Did your GMC come with the trailer camera for the trailer? The 2020 trucks I looked at buying did not have the trailer camera and to get camera for the trailer it seemed like you had to order the truck from factory with the camera system to work. Several dealers seemed convinced this was case too.
