This is excellent! Now I can seal up my hard copies in an oversized ziploc bag and have them available if needed for resale of the trailer.

In the meantime, I will put the essential ones in my dropbox account so that they are available on any of my electronic devices.

Thanks, this is truly useful!

I'm sure glad you suggested saving for resale. I was about to recycle the manuals in my quest for "paperless" storage.

I am a big proponent of using Evernote, with its "Local Notebook" feature. This allows you to have the important stuff in a local, offline Notebook, for those times there is no internet access camping....
Works on Blackberry, iPhone, Android, laptop - it doesn't matter.
It's free, and it is one of the strongest text searchable applications I have ever found. Check it out at evernote.com

I have found that set of mint condition manuals is an advantage when selling an RV. It shows buyers that you are organized and methodical and likely took good care of the unit.

I've been going mostly paperless myself. I find it amazing how much "camping" has changed in the past decade with smartphones and public wifi everywhere. I remember trying to read hiking map PDFs on my Palm Treo. It was nearly impossible.

Coincidentally, I just downloaded Evernote earlier this month. I haven't completely bought into it, though. It supports so many different file types (which should be a good thing but I prefer my mobile apps to be more streamlined). Still there are a few times I wished that my opml organizer supported graphics so I may yet be a convert.

Dropbox syncs when it has an internet connection so the latest version of the files are available when offline. My main problem with Dropbox is that my workplace has recently banned it (and many other cloud based services) as a security risk.

I would suggest that Tin's file in Post #7 on this thread: 5.0 TA & a big truck be added to the files section, I am not finding it there. It has all the measurements for the 5.0TA and related truck considerations and I found it invaluable in determining how to set up my hitch and what kind of clearance I would have.

I'm sure it would be a big help to others in the process of planning a truck / 5.0TA combination. I relied on the measurements on his diagram and found them to be spot on, I came out within 1/8" of where I expected to be when first hitched up at orientation at ETI.

Unfortunately, his post is within another thread so the thread can not be 'sticky". Perhaps you can download the pertinent info and make a .pdf file and that can then be uploaded to the files section.

I just did that - saved the file as a .pdf and uploaded it to the Miscellaneous files section. It said that it worked, and the file count increased from 17 to 18, but I do not see it....can you see it there?

David, files added to the Document Center have to be approved by a moderator or admin before they're visible to the membership. I just approved your document. THANKS!
