Shoot Jerry, you can have all 4 of my piggy banks, but full disclosure: 2 of 'em are only half full, and mostly pennies. They used to be full, but I've given too many "Two Cents Worth" of opinions. [emoticon]

Thanks to Howard, and Joe also, for having my back, if needed!

I'm doin purdy good, right now, but ya just never know??

Piggy bank...always a good savings! A salesman asked me once "how does one just walk in, write a check for a new truck"? I told him, I just throw all my pocket change in a jar every day. Next time I need a new truck, I cash it in at the bank!

BTW...agree with friends, even forum friends I've never met, being an important asset. I feel like I actually know some of you, and appreciate your online friendship!

Three of my very best friends are guys I met here on RV.net. Have met them in person for quite a few years but talked with them here for a long time before that. [emoticon]

I'm sure that is true for many others here also. This place is more than just reading and informing.

My take on the "upgrade to disc brakes" thing is that the bigger the RV, the more benefit you see from upgrading to discs due to their superior braking capabilities, which is important on bigger RVs.

Here's some useful videos to watch.

Probably true but it seems Copper was low at the time.

I considered it when we purchased the Momentum.

Decided against it for two reasons.
1.Reduced ground clearance. We always boondock. This means traveling down some dirt roads that can be rutted or muddy. The IS hangs pretty low. Ground clearance is reduced to about the height of the tires sidewalls. This means getting stuck would happen pretty easy.

2. I watched a video of the installation. They drop the coroplast and all of the insulation. When that is installed originally, it is just a frame with some tanks, wiring etc. installed, and it is upsidedown. So it is easy for the insulation to be put where it needs to be, and then the coroplast is screwed down over it. That holds it in place then the frame is flipped rightside up and a trailer is built on top of it.
Trying to reinstall the insulation after the trailer is built is an exercise in futility. Gravity just won't let it happen The video skipped that part for good reason. I seriously doubt the insulation is reinstalled as good as it was originally. We boondock in all kinds of weather, so that is important to us.

Of course I realize that my usage is likely different than most.
So others may be OK with doing it anyways.

Just throwing out there in case it might help someone decide
