Shoot! I was hoping to order a cooler like that--any spare A/S name thingies I run across will have to be saved for trailers, not put on coolers, alas, but yours is really neat looking. If you get tired of it, please let me know? Hmmm?

Thanks for your reply!

Thanks!

I'm looking into full coverage now. At $230/yr, I would sure like to meet your agent!

We have home, autos, trailers, atvs with Liberty Mutual, but if I remember correctly, they don't do RVs.

I have MH liability insur with Progressive at $140/yr. Full coverage for $5,000 value would be $371/yr. If I could get MH valued at $25,000, premium would be $513/yr.

This is going to be a pain in the .....

I'm sure the AS emblem will outlast my new ice chest and then I'll just have to mount it onto something else!

Not a single space at the ranch is level so I usually grab whatever plywood, etc is laying around to raise the front end. I have to get the mh as level as possible before I use the hydraulic jacks. If I raise the front too much with the hydraulic jack, the entry door won't close properly.

My brother brought over a bunch of 2 X 10's and I made a couple of ramps out of them!

Good to know. Since I seem to have the same issue when my rear air bags deflate. So do you think it is because of the unnatural torque that the jacks places on the frame that causes it to go catiwhampass vice being supported by the wheels.

My system controls lift the front on one switch, rear on two, engineers must of figured on front being self leveling while the rear each side has a switch.
When we were at Jackson Center met an AS'er that was in for replacement of front windows due to stress cracking.
Directions for levelers state lift front first then rear, but we also have the warped door frame on high lifts and only use them as stabilizers with all tires on the ground or like you on boards.

At the shop today having the dash A/C worked on. My '28 Airstream looks so small next to the other SOB monster coaches!

There is a Monaco Camelot sitting next to me at the repair shop getting its roof worked on...see they all leak! They have the curb side awing out part way. I'm going to ask them to put it out all the way so that it covers my roof on this very hot day!

Size doesn't matter when you have an airstream!
