Lots of RV vendors but I can only recommend etrailer from personal experience.

I had a 2011 6.0 years ago.  Under the bench seat should be the electrical cord storage and the 12 VT chargers and inverter. You should be able to rerun or reconnect the 12 VT power cables and crimp on battery connectors. You might need to fabricate or purchase the tray to hold the battery too. Questions on this I would give the folks at etrailer a call and they should be able to assist.

Make sure the winter by pass is not on.  There should be three valves by your hot water tank. RV antifreeze will ruin the heating element. When winterizing the by pass is opened and the HW tank is isolated so antifreeze will not get pumped into the tank.  So close the one by pass valve and open the cold in and hot out valves to your HW tank.  If you ran the electric heat with no water the element may be bad.  Running it with propane without water will not hurt he HW tank. Good luck.

Pretty sure that mating piece is a standard "Camping World" piece of hardware. Another option is to take it off your existing table too.

The biggest challenge I have greasing the wheel bearings is getting that rubber cover back on.

You have filled the water tank?  The city water connection is direct water supply.  To use the tank water you have the fill the tank using the larger tank fill cap.

General Q & A / Re: Recaulking over silicone

Try a search of “Aluminum Campers Forum” they have a few posts on caulking and silicone.

I siliconed over the front seam on our 16 TBS yesterday. Was only leaking with driving in the rain.


QuickSilver Tent Campers / Re: replacing mattress
« on: March 17, 2019, 09:35:15 AM »
When we had our 6.0 we used a mattress topper.  Worked well but we still got some condensation. We put high density foam under the mattress which help cut down the moisture.  A 4” foam mattress should help with the condensation issue too.

Our 16 TBS came with the same crappy mattress as the 6.0 and they had to go too.

There is one all Aluminum RV trailer manufacture still out there but it is a toy hauler.  If we ever have replace our LL we are going to give this company a serious look over (Not Thor):

We too like David have a 16 TBS.  When we had our QS 6.0 we put a foam topper and it worked great.  With the TBS to use it with and without the plate that converts between a King and Twins we ordered a custom made mattress from They did a great job.  We got the 6” mattress but could have gone with the 4” to save weight and ease of moving them around. I will say the condensation issues under the mattress went away with the thicker mattress.   

If you can go with a stock foam cover cut to size vs. a custom that could be a good start prior to sending the $$$ on the custom mattress.  I believe our custom four piece king was under $700.00.  If the foam cover does not get the job done then give Mattress Insider a call. They are a good company and have a lot of experience in the RV/Boating/Trucking industry. 

Sorry I do not know the weight limit but in the manuals section of this forum they should have your owners manual with that information.
