RE: Weight distribution

My understanding of the way it works is the less links you have between the bar and the link you are hooking, the more weight you are moving toward the front wheels from the rear wheels. And yes, I was instructed to do the same number of links on both sides. Initially, I used the 4th link from the end of the chain and when loaded I still felt a little light in the front end steering. I measured the fenders and decided to use the 5th link to increase the weight shift towards the front of the tow vehicle and it resulted in a better driving experience.

RE: Using the RV on short stops

I'll throw out there that Vent covers helped greatly in keeping the camper cool on trips when we would run in to grab something from the fridge or use the bathroom. I have two vents, both covered and both open at all times when traveling. Never had rain issues blowing in and the inside temp is generally pretty close to outside air temps. We stop, I turn the fans on crank one window open and it cools down additionally pretty quick, especially if we can park partly shaded or if it's cloudy.

RE: Small Fridge Fan?

Here is a link showing how to properly vent a refer. Most installations do not follow installation as recommended by manufacturers. RV venting IMO and experience one of the most common problems with almost all refer installs is that baffle at the top of the refer to close off the dead space is missing or inadequate. This causes a "air bubble" of warm air to reduce or prevent heat to properly escape thru the roof resulting in poor cooling. This issue can come and go depending on when/if/how severe this blockage forms. Larry I'll second what Larry is saying here. Factory baffling is generally somewhere between inadequate to missing completely. This takes the whole heat will rise through the air tunnel causing cool air to be pulled across the coils process to a crawl. Verifying and fixing or installing baffles is step one, adding a fan either at the top of the vent to pull warm air up or at the bottom to force cool air up over the cooling fins is step two if you want maximum refrig performance. I've done this on both a popup I had and my current TT. Both work wonderfully now, regardless of the temps outside and I never have to turn my frig up to max to keep my freezer stuff frozen and my frig stuff in the high 30's, low 40's.
