RE: Should I Fix This - Frame Cross Member

2DHoop - I have an AF and my frame looks exactly like yours at the front where you have the red arrow. Further, I have the same zip ties holding the wires and propane hose to solid pipe connection. Word of caution, Northwood wound the flexible propane connection to fixed connection to tight with an "open C clamp" which ended up breaking that connection. I backed off the tension on the C clamp (2 bolts) and put a small section of rubber between it and the fixed pipe to stop any rubbing. This allows a bit of movement as the trailer flexes while going down the road. Hope you are enjoying the trailer!! Thanks for the confirmation, Dr. Blake. This whole mini project started at the battery's connections and in an effort to educate myself about how the system is setup/wired. Seeing that someone doesn't know how to crimp connections very well, nor prevent corrosion, I proceeded to solder new ring connectors to the parallel jumpers and primary connections. As I followed the trail to the underside, I noticed a bunch of other "no-goes" as you have pointed out as well. Also, there are two #8 wires (black and red) that were bundled up but not connected to anything. I don't really want to take off the 12"X12" "hatch" to see where they terminate above the under belly covering so I just rolled them up out of the way for now.. 2D - Those wires are for your solar ready panel; the trailer is prewired. I am sure there is a sticker somewhere by your info panel that says "solar ready"; this panel can be removed and there will be a similar set of wires (4) behind the panel to hook-up a charge station/wizard for the panels. Also on the roof there will be a connection point where you would plug in the panels to complete the system.
