The fuses are for the 12 volt power circuits. Based on what you described, you need to check the circuit breakers.

This came up a few years ago on one of the other Livin' Lite forums. Someone at the factory told us that they are not Torx. They are called #4 (I think) Double Square head. They are designed to use the square bit that you identified, but they are easier to engage with the bit because there are twice as many opportunities to fit onto the bit.

That makes sense.

I was just thinking about a motorcycle camper that we used to have. It was all fiberglass with foam board lamination. It worked amazingly well.

It would be messy to do, but 1/2 inch pink foam board wrapped in fiberglass fabric and resin as a substrate under 1/4“ Corian might work.

We did a major resupply in Calgary in late July on our way between Glacier and Banff National Parks. If we had known there were 3 other LL owners in town we could have had a mini-meetup  8)
What a beautiful part of the world that is!! It's on my list of places to visit again.

QuickSilver Tent Trailer General Discussions / Re: Diamondplate Polish
« on: September 04, 2018, 12:55:02 AM »
I polished some of the exposed and unfinished smooth aluminum. I used a power ball and both liquid and paste aluminum polish. I quit because it's a lot of work and I didn't think it was worth it.

The diamond plate would be much worse because it would shred the power ball or just about anything else that you could use.

Recommend tire pressure is based on the amount of load applied to each tire. Most RV trailers are designed with just enough tires to carry the load, so max pressure is correct for them. This has led to the incorrect understanding that MAX pressure is the only safe pressure. This is absolutely incorrect!

In most cases the tires on Quicksilver campers have less than half of the load that the tires can handle at max pressure. In this situation, inflation to MAX is absolutely wrong and creates problems.

I'm not recommending operating below required pressure for the load. I am recommending proper pressure for the application.

The axles on these trailers weren't designed for shock absorbers. I don't think there are any provisions for mounting locations either. I'm not aware of any way to add shock absorbers when no design provision exists.

If the trailer is under 1,700 pounds and too bouncy on bumps, try less air pressure.

QuickSilver Tent Trailer Modifications / Re: LP Option on QS 8.1

Propane or Natural Gas plumbing is about the same whether it's in a camper or a house. You want to use copper roll tubing, probably 1/2 inch, with flare fittings for all joints. Make sure that all mounting points can't cause any abrasive damage to the pipe that would result in a leak. Use a soap solution to check for leaks.

It's not rocket surgery, but it requires much attention to detail! It's also very low pressure, so it's not that hard to get it right.

Remember that propane is heavier than air, so any leaked gas will go toward the ground.
