    Tire Changing

    Don't lift my the light weight frame!.... very very dangerous. You only have to lift the wheel 1 1/2" by the axle with a v-groove angle iron jack insert. (very safe) Send me your jack (or just the screw head) and I'll weld it for free. This is a 4 ton jack...8000# is twice needed. No need...

    Good Sam Roadside Assistance Saved Me Again

    Good Sam RV roadside assistance is the only way to go IMO. We had AAA for 30 years but they won't change a tire on the wheel or bring a new tire if requested. Also Good Sam is $25% less than AAA.

    Battery box vents

    I added a second battery like you did to our Sundance. I installed a 'tee' and ran a second hose to the top of the battery second lid. The 1/1/4" or 1 1/2" hose and pvc drain trap tee can be bought at Home Depot or Lowes. Make sure you vent the bottom of the new battery box similar to the OEM.

    Re: How many problems are "normal" for a new trailet? After owning 4 new RV's I'd say your issues are normal. Get those small issues fixed then modify and enjoy your trailer.

    Artis water pump

    The pump is rated for 3 gpm, that's not necessarily the faucets ratings. To check the pump output use a test hose directly connected to the pumps discharge outlet, place the hose end in a gal. bucket and run the pump for 1 minute.

    Cost of delivery

    Lakeshore RV (Gary England) only charged us $1.00 a mile one way. $1.50 is on the high side. Normal would be $1.25 mile, the terms are very negotiable If they want the sale. Drivers do not make 1.50 per mile.....1/2 of that if they are lucky.

    My truck-and-5'er combo is right at the limit on pin weight ... safety issue?

    Hitch it up and see how it sits. I'm betting you will want air bags to level it out and reduce sway. Air bags helped my F-250 overall and I towed Ultra-lite Sundance 287 (1240# oem pin weight ended up being 1550#)
