Sometimes when I do a search, I get results that are, shall I say, off topic.

I agree. If you search by thread the thing you are searching for may be in a thread that seemingly has nothing to do with your search and you have to wade through a lot of unrelated postings. Threads tend to wander sometimes. But if you search by posting you will often get way too many hits to be useful. Sometimes it's just easier to ask the question again in a new thread.

I've learned a lot from this forum and don't mind helping others with questions I have asked myself.

Another factor is that things evolve. There is a current thread about fridge sizes in the 17'. No point in searching 17' fridges because they are different sizes, different models over the years.

Very good idea. Where it is now is not as prominent as it could be IMHO.

What conversion kit did you use? I am thinking of doing this because the cord cover on our trailer is broken. It will also make room for an accumulator and some other gadgets!

This one. Uses the existing power cord for the conversion:

Thanks! It looks like it will fit into the existing square hole on the trailer.

I will have to order and pick-up from the US because Amazon.ca wants $260 for it!

I store my 17' in a secure storage location, I was still worried about someone pulling out the cord, cutting it off, it's a lot of copper ?

Worried about theft

There's not much you can do to stop a determined thief. You can't worry about it. If they can't take your cord there's tires, batteries, propane tank and copper, etc etc etc. Secure storage is a relative term, don't let the possibilities rule your life. Remember the Garrison Kielor routines with the fear mongers? A lot of those jokes have now become reality.

Thanks for this information Robert . I will tell the truth now and am thinking of changing out the cord . On this last trip I had to crawl under bed and remove the divider , after removing everything under bed. . The cord was ,because of the cold in a knot and wouldn't pull out . Needless to say wasn't happy . On previous RV's would not have that problem because opening was bigger , with cord in a a container . Pat
