Started bolting down the tie-downs. The factory ones were screwed into those steel plates you described on yours, so they were more secure than I originally thought. The bolts had a sheet-metal screw-like tip on them. I couldn't get a nut to go on that, so I'm just buying new machine bolts to replace them, with washers and nylock nuts. The front center one is the only one I can't get to--it's up under the belly insulation, and I really don't want to pull all that down.

The unit is going back to the dealer today to have my punch list of stuff fixed while we're still under warranty. We'll see how that goes...

Looked at my trailer today and wished I was out enjoying it this weekend.

I built a really great outdoor television area in my 24HFS. I basically drilled a simple hole under the queen mattress and I run the cable from the "bedroom" into the storage hatch. I mounted a swing mount inside the storage hatch that lets me pull it completely out at any angle or watch inside the storage hatch if it is sunny or potential rain. The best part is I have outdoor tv that i can simply lock up at night without moving the tv.

Well no pics yet but today I managed to accomplish a couple of things.

Installed some mud flaps on the trailer, should assist in keeping from the tires back from being sand blasted.

Adjusted the pin hight on my hitch, added air bags to the truck so it would sit level. That caused the trailer to sit pin high. Now she is level again.

And yesterday was sad, I picked up the anti freeze to winterize the trailer. Thankfully I still have a planned few weekends before I tackle that job.
