    I am looking for some input here. My problem is headache rack and apu related. I don't have spacers on the APU to push it out from the frame the 1" or so I need for clearance for the ubolts of the headache rack. I have looked and looked and can't seem to find an answer to this.

    I have a Carrier Comfort Pro APU mounted with the hangars and bolts flush against the frame rail. Would box steel work for a spacer with this? Any better solution/suggestion? I know that they make spacers specifically for the units I just don't have the time to wait for ordering them up.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Yes, just use a heavy wall tubing. My truck has spacers and they appear to be solid but that’s not really necessary. IMG_6200.jpeg

    Thank you! Just wanted to make sure that this would work well for this. Got trapped with a load on my trailer over Thanksgiving and, well, the wheels ain't turning not earning a living. Moved my cabinet forward in case there is a power only to carry me through this week and in the future for this nonsense.

    Thanks again!
