I was told that if you have Slide Toppers that they don't get put on until after paint also, so yep there are things to be done and everything rechecked after paint before the unit ships.

My unit came in on Thursday of this week and it was suposed to be there by Tuesday and left the plant on Monday (about a 15 hour drive). They said that some of the drivers won't pull these when it's windy (although I did without any problems at all). I wonder if it's because of extra fuel cost with the wind because I read somewhere that Redwood has a flat rate for shipping.

Their probably rookie drivers and to be safe they (the shipping company) won't let the m pull these rigs in certain conditions.

Just reading through past notes and I saw a question about direction gen exhaust away from your coach. Gen air is the answer. We dry campers called them uppy pipes. They are light, easy to install and wor really well‚Ä?little or no back pressure.
