    Jacking entire trailer for axle replacement and mover install - concerns?

    I'm getting set to lift my entire 2006 Fleetwood Niagara, with the goal of upgrading to a 5000lb axle, installing the PurpleLine Enduro I finally got last winter, and anything else I might want to do while I have easy access underneath. I've done as much reading as I can here and via Google...

    Kid-friendly screendoor latch?

    I've got a 2006 Fleetwood Niagara with the classic Coleman door latches for both outside and bathroom doors: The problem is our 6yo has a lot of trouble pushing the stupid button in far enough to get it to unlatch. Even I do sometimes.... I've done some looking around but haven't found any...

    I've spent a few hours futzing around with the seal and other things on the toilet in our recently acquired and as-yet unused (next week!) tent trailer.

    Galley leak and safety valve

    Just bought a 2008 Fleetwood Utah, and I'm trying to get all the systems bootstrapped. I haven't RV'd before but my dad has spent ~20 years "refining" his fiberglass trailer so I have a pretty good idea of how most of this works, but no direct practical experience. The previous owners "didn't...
