Recessed Tie Downs??



Any ideas on where I could pick these up locally? (I am in the Naperville / Aurora area)

I picked them up at ricks while i was there I also picked up a battery box to mount my car battery in. I know have a deep cycle in the trailer that runs my lights and stereo (when I finnaly finish wiring that) and is charged by the truck while I drive it. I also picked up a cover for the roof vent so it can be open in the rain or while I drive. Huge plus if your sleeping in it and it's raining, you can still get air.

Home Depot DID NOT have them when I checked last night. I am hoping maybe the Lowes or Menards has them, or some place similar to one of them that is close to me.

If not, I'll just have to make a trip to Rick's RV this weekend.

I'd bet Cabella's has them. Their towing section seems to have everything!

It's been a while but I know I saw them at one of the big box stores. Did you check the section where all the hinges and gate hardware is located? Not where the towing stuff (tie-downs, balls, etc) is?

Ron,

It is 1/2 mile from my house. How many do you need - I can bring them to you on Thursday.

Dean

What do the internet and Channel 11 have in common? They are both a window to the world; put it out there and do not be surprised who will see it.
