  1. As an old RV Tech I can tell you after doing MANY of these - yes those turns are in the retract position (well really 6 inches out - because that is where/how you remove and replace the roller tube). Just be careful, the topper is not as bad as the patio awnings, many DIY RVers have hurt themselves working on awnings in the fully extended position. Mark
  2. Incredible pics and work done - thank you for posting these. What is the reason for the angle iron in the hinge point? Sorry I must be a little slow….
  3. Steve, Thanks for sharing the pic - looks like a good crowd....one year we will make it.....
  4. Thanks for all the good suggestions.....will have to do something different.
  5. So got a question.....bought my used 453 Smart and had Marc & Jack put a great basic deck on....thought I could be like many others and drive up the little guy onto the deck. Well in a real short time, it would no longer "drive up", the clutch burned out. Luckily for me Smart replaced the clutch under warranty but was very clear in informing me "not to do this anymore". For all those with a 453 driving it up - have you had any problems? Do you smell the clutch at all when you load? And no, I don't sit on the ramps riding the throttle and emergency brake....I'm confused.... Mark
  6. Thanks for the info....it's just these are not true service manuals....I'm not sure what's going to happen in the future when the MB Dealers stop maintaining the Smart's and there is not detailed info out there??? I talked with the MB Dealer in Colorado they claim they are the only Smart Dealer in a 5 state radius, they have one mechanic and "when he leaves" we are done working on Smart's...... Mark
  7. Does anyone have or know where to get an electronic service manual for the 453 series Smart? I was able to find a " Introduction into Service Manual" which has little to no valuable information. Mark
  8. Randy - hope all goes well and when your done you will "feel young again" Mark
  9. You all have a great time this year...Chad - great job again....sorry couldn't make it this year working on getting a deck put on to load the smart..... Mark
  10. Ouch.....looks like there isn't any RV damage and everyone is safe..... Mark
  11. Saw a nice looking Volvo towing a Momentum Fiver around Gainesville today....someone on the forum?
  12. Really like your bed build....did you do your own design on this? Ride looks great....

    Direclink - works great with my electric over hydraulic system. Great people to work with - they provided me with a prototype cable (newer Volvo with square OBD port) and we worked through the bugs - could not be more happier. Mark
