I would love to get a look at that roller mentioned in previous posts used to roll out dents from the inside of trailer. that may be my best approach.

Kip; Do you think it would work to remove the dent shown in the photo in my post # 7 on this thread? I would consider taking the interior fiberglass shell out to gain access to that outer shell.

It would definitely improve it. I had a crease about 2ft long pushed in about 4 inches. You can feel where it was but it is hard to see. I used a combination of shot bags, dollys, heat and everything else that most told be couldn't be done to make it look better. I sure couldn't make it look any worse so I really didn't have anything to loose.

Is there a 1-800-xxx-xxxx number you can call? Usually large manufacturers have toll free info lines.

original lights???

Couple of questions. Does anyone know if these are the original lights? They don't look the same as the ones in the back of the trailer near the bed, and I get the feeling they aren't original. I also can't get these lights shown to turn on. I did remove and replace the overhead storage after making some repairs and refinishing it today. there are two wires taped off as well as what I assume to be a DC wire too. Not sure what purpose they serve and whether these two wires are related to the not working two front reading lights. could these two wires be part of that circuit??

Not sure if lights are original.Mine had the same base but were aluminum and more cone shape rather than the step down shape.It looks like your Zolatone paint is in good shape .PO painted over mine with latex!

these are definitley original and I assume there was another set in the front that were replaced at some point. Does yours have the wires shown in previous post? I'm thinking of wiring in a stereo and some attractive speakers into the overhead cabinet panels on each side.
