Well.....back from our 12 day get-a-way. Well sorta, we communted to work when we had to but spent every night in the TT. Everything worked flawlessly and no issues came up. The new extended x-chocks worked like a charm, the TT was never so stable. I did have a little leak on the floor at the wardrobe slide during 2 wind-driven rain storms but, it was so minor that a single sheet of paper towel soaked it up with ease.

Sheeesh, I just realized all the junk in the pics that I posted. I didn't realize we had pulled so much stuff out.

Great to hear you had a good trip. Sorry to hear it had to end!

The way you described the leak at your warderobe slide sounds like what I experienced. Just during a high wind rain storm and only when the slide was open. Did you ever find out exactly how/where the water is getting in?

I really like the X-Chocks too. They do help. I also placed a step stabilizer under the bottom step. It seems like most noticeable movement occurs when people enter/exit the trailer. The step stabilizer eliminated that. It also stabilized the steps themselves as well.

We're going out this weekend. My SIL, Daughter and 2 grand daughters will be joining us. Taking the LaCrosse and an '07 Flagstaff pup I picked up cheap. It needs a little minor attention, but overall in pretty good shape. The family will use it whenever they want and I'll probably use it when I go on fishing trips by myself.

Good luck and happy camping.

The first rainstorm, I found water on the bedroom side of the slide (that will wake you up fast when stepping out of bed at 3am to go to the bathroom and you step in COLD water!!!!). The second storm, I found it where you found yours. DW thought it was from her shower but, I pointed out that you had the same condition. I checked all my seals and all were "folded out" properly. I did have the slide side a little high (maybe a half inch) anticipating the settling that I had experienced last year. BTW - it didn't seem to settle as much this time so that may have contributed.

Wow.....a second TT.....but, that will be nice to be able to have more room for MORE family on camping trips. That really makes it worth it to have everybody together.
P.S. If you can, send a pick of your step stabilizers. I don't think I've ever seen them. We used our new extra wide platform step and that was a pleasure.

Here's a link to Tweety's showing different ones.

I bought mine through my dealer. It's similar to the pic below and about the same price. I bought 2 and place them towards the ends of the step. Just seemed to be a little more stable that way.



Since we have the tall steps, you'll need one that extends to 14".
