    ATF: Landmark -

    We have excessive cold air entering the slide windows at the head of the bed. The air is radiating strongly from the bottom of the window.

    IS installation on LM Augusta

    We will be at MorRyde May 6-7 for the IS, DB and NL Hubs. Question we have is whether to go with 7,000 lb or upgrade to 8,000 lb axle equivalent? It is our understanding that the higher weight will make for rougher ride of the RV. Would appreciate input from others who have already had the IS...
