We have a Switchblade cover. It retracts like a Venetian blind. Well, you have a strap you use to pull it closed, and then pull it back open again. It goes right over the top of our king pin...

For anything that needs clear sealant, I just use standard silicone and a caulking gun. That's me, though. YMMV.

When I make the bed (my chore!), I pull the mattress out from between the built-in nightstands as much as feasible to still squeeze around to the other side. Then I lift a corner, pull the fitted...

At least your drain valve works! Ours got torn up during a blowout. Mobile tech was able to close it, but I'll likely never be able to use it again. Good thing we're full-time and don't need to...

I need to have an *additional* outlet down at the bumper. (Have to pull a...

We, too, travel with a sidecar! For us, the Sportster 1200 with the sidecar goes in the toy hauler, and my Heritage is on a hydraulic lift at the back.

Good travels to you!...

You might check, but I'm fairly certain that backup system does NOT work for fifth wheels. You have to put stickers on a typical trailer tongue/frame.
