QuickBite Install

Howie, thanks for the info. How much higher does the coupler now sit and is there a repair kit for the jaws? I'm almost there in the decision process. I's now down to the Atwood 91911 or the QuickBite. Hugh price difference, but both will accommodate the Andersen.

Andersen with QuickBite

Just spoke with the makers of the QuickBite (Lippert) and there is no repair kit for the QuickBite. Waiting for confirmation from Andersen that the Atwood 81911 coupler is the one they use in their testing. No repair kit for the 81911 either. But the $$$$ difference is astounding . . . QB $179 plus shipping and tax and $220 for installation. Atwood - $28 plus shipping and tax and $100 for installation. Huge difference for easy hook up.

I'll keep you all posted.

Yes you can buy a repair kit for a coupling that will not work. There will be no need for a repair kit for th QB

Unfortunately, the losers at Lippert have purchased the patent and discontinued production of the QuickBite coupler.

I'm suspecting that the purchase contract was based on paying the inventer X dollars per unit sold, and they've figured out a way to screw him in the process.
