No, just two. On a class C I would put one on the left side where the
chassis meets the coach and the other on the left rear on the coach. You
are looking for side to side and front to back leveling. Two will suffice.
Roy don't need one of those. Ole Roy is old and retired. He's
"retired" from many things.......... <GBMFG>
Don't kid yourself my pudgy friend. Everything is just fine.
Although given your situation with that bumper hanging in front of you it is
doubtful you can get close enough to accomplish much.
Thinking about this that must be why you are so in love with "the machine".
Mechanized self gratification!
My wife and I are also considering this lifestyle. A question I've asked is
What about laundry? I know large 5th wheelers and class A have them, but can
they be retro-fit into smaller trailers? She suffers from MCS and that is
why we want to control her environment.
A quick thought just smacked me.... you got Mike S. e-mail??? He does
the rv thing with his heated seats..
We've had both installed/no install and most often we've had just the two of
us. The local laundry (at the RV park and just on the road) do fine for our
needs. When we have the grand kids ... on board is basically useless. (I
recommend you stay away from the no vet type regardless)
Here's a trick from our old sailing days. We have several ice chest. When
we're on the move we put whites in one, darks in another add soap and water
and boggy on down the road. After a bit (hour or two) we empty the chest,
add clean water (rinse) and buggy for another hour or so.
Sailing we'd run the clean/wet laundry up a lanyard to dry when we were
under sail. (not something I'd try with an RV)
In the RV when we stop for lunch we use a local laundry's dryers and the
deed is done before lunch was over.
Not really needed when there's just the two of us but a blessing when we
have the grand brats and their friends.
FWIW I find out a lot about the area from the local folk in the laundries.
An aside my wife suffers from allergies so we've equipped the vehicles with
electronic air filters. these are assisted by the passive filters you can
get a Lows and Home Depot. Likely unnecessary, I've installed UV florescent
in the return air ducts as well.
As these are typically low power draws I drive them with cheap DC/AC
inverters so we can use off the shelf filters (read cheaper). Added
advantage these can double as power sources for the grand kids electronics.
We had 2 5th Wheelers over that past 8 years. Kinda like a bass boat,
it's was great when we bought it, but the cost can be really high to
operate and maintain. We logged around 200K with ours. Had a good time,
but sold them both now and have gotten into motorcycles again. A little
cheaper, errr, except for the rallies.

you need only know one thing about RVs to make your experience positive:
they are _all_ pieces of shit. some are better shit and some are lesser
shit but you may as well embrace this concept now; they are ALL varying
degrees of shit. once you accept this you wont be too disappointed when the
shit starts to fall apart.
this is my current piece of shit. i want to sell it and buy a more
expensive piece of shit but the RV market has plummeted making my
semi-expensive piece of shit a dang near worthless piece of shit.
...still beats hotels though.

Nate, I guess it is like anything mass produced. It is what it is and ya
sorta live with it and make the best of it. Of course if a better deal comes
I know what you mean regarding price's.I think jumped in at the right time.
Did the deal on the last day of the month which was also the last day of the
year. That imo was a help in moving the price downward.
yes, and no. remove one of your electrical outlet covers to see what i
mean. instead of cutting out the holes in the paneling they just bust them
out with a hammer.
