We decided to make some memories with this 2014 Retro 175. We have lots of places to go, but need to modify it a bit. We need to put a lift kit on, she sits a little low. Any suggestions on where to get it? Getting excited to get moving!

When I last spoke with White Water regarding my 155, they said that the lift kit was available and that it would provided approximately 3" of lift.  However, they could only be purchased through a dealer.

With the 155 (and not the 155xl or the 175, for example) they say the low ride height is standard so that the trailer can fit in a standard garage.  After the lift, it may no longer do so.

The contact information at Riverside I used was:

Thanks for the reply Calabrio. I think where going to just find out what axle it has and find the kit that way. It looks like it would be easy to install. Riverside contacted us and said to go to the dealer, like you said.

Well, we didn't get to enjoy the Retro. A few weeks after we had it we found out the floor under the bed was rotted out. We were able to return it to the dealer because they had not processed any of the paperwork yet - we ended up buying a new Shasta Oasis. Which already has problems on its own. We bought a few a few items that we cannot use and are available to anyone who might need it.

Very sorry to hear about the water damage in your briefly-owned trailer. What a disappointment.
I am a rookie so don't know what other people's habits are, but because of the probability of water causing damage, I store my water hose in the back of my truck once I disconnect it, not in the big storage compartment under the bed. I store the sewage hose in the compartment inside a large plastic bag.  I flush out my water hose before connecting as it gets dust in it, and in case any bugs, etc may have crawled into it. Per a marine engineer who deals with marine hoses, I should also disinfect each end of the hose, then flush it.  I haven't done that yet. But, I do not drink the water in the trailer, from any source, other than the jugs of filtered drinking water I bring along. I am curious as to what methods others use to keep these hoses tidy and clean, and refrain from dripping water in the trailer?

Stinky slinky stores in the bumper. Fresh water hose gets drained after each use (lay it on the ground and slowly work one end over your shoulder so it drains), then coil and connect the ends together to keep stuff out. Let it flush out for a bit before each use, and sanitize the beginning of every season. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. ðŸ‹

Though with my luck the hose will make its way out of the bumper and be bouncing along behind me down the freeway.  One of the bumper caps fell off the first day I used the trailer.  I know you can get better replacement caps. Any trick to making sure they don't come out?

I drilled a hole thru the bumper and into the cap . I found a long screw and pushed it thru the holes has worked for last 3 trips. Or buy the better caps .GBA!!SVJ
