Have you experienced problems requiring removal of the foam and how did it go? Second time around would you still choose to add the foam?
Being a stellar example of the "if enough people say it's a must have, I must have it!" mentality, I purchased the Horst Probes and had Escape install them. So far, me being an exemplary follower has paid off, and the probes haven proven accurate over the time we have owned the trailer (if I said only 4 or so weeks' worth of camping in the 5.0TA, it would make me sound like a complete noob, so I left that out. Wait...oh shoot!!
However, when I looked online and saw the differences in the probes, even to my oft-befuddled mind, it seemed that if the probe had a protector over it as the Horst does, vs. nothing to keep say a piece of toilet paper from gently laying over the bare probe to give a false reading, the covered probe wins. And even in my brain, where there are so many competing voices...it made me happy.
