Before you go too far. Most often it is simple a bad bulb socket. Check for power at the wires coming into the the light on that side of your RV. Good bulbs still don't work in a bad socket. :)

The strength of the jack is straight vertical so if the load were to shift to one side or to be markedly uneven so the bed twisted to one side, they may not be able to handle it.

That's what I thought you might use. It should work fine and I believe you will find them at Northern Parts also.

A good while back I posted pictures of my 02 at the bottom of my driveway jack knifed when the trailer lifted the back wheels clear up while unloading a backhoe.

I am not sure exactly what kind of...

So really it is just the OEM taking a few minutes to run the wire. As long as it is free to the customer, that's not bad!

I am not sure I am understanding your question and admittedly I know very little about flat beds save for the ones I have rented.

Are you wanting to put a jack on each side at the rear so as you...

Normally the preps I see are are not ties to the battery, but is that all you get are the two 10ga wires? Do you have to pay for that?

So you know for sure and a very simple fix. I suspect whoever hooked it up wasn't considering battery layout. I am used to seeing solar preps at the battery with a label and not connected. :)

My best advice? Use it! So many folks just let em sit. RVing is really a lot of fun and there is almost nothing you can do to cause any serious harm short of running it into a tree or some such. Push...

I guess where this gets crazy for me is there is not even a reported problem and it would only take a few minutes to figure out where these leads go. Since they are running to the batteries, code...

I would again encourage no changes until you know what and why you are making the changes. Hand crimped eyelets #10s will outlast the RV in most cases. Perhaps less cosmetically appealing, but...

I think last time I needed something Atwood, that is where I got it, but that was just landing gear. When I pull up my parts catalog, the Lippert stuff looks exactly like the Atwood.

As near as I can tell it is all interchangeable. Lippert just buys manufacturers. They often don't change much. All the legs now are just 29 1/2". I haven't seen anything else for a while. You used...
