My dealer is 3 hours away in NJ so not a simple deal. I have a toolbox just for the camper. It stays in the camper.

Just remembered. On one trip I had a guy pull up next to me and said I was losing my sewer hose. I pulled over and there was the sewer hose hanging out of the bumper. I had to dispose of it cause it had a hole worn through it. Here's how I fixed that problem when I got home. Drilled and then I used a thick piece of wire to secure bumper caps.

That is a great idea. I had lost the end cap on the old 5ver a few times lucky I never lost the sewer hose. I actually carried spare end caps. This makes sense.

Losing the sewer hose.....It's sorta like talking with food stuck in your teeth or walking around with your fly down, embarrassing.

I still have 12 more days before I get mine and that's if the 4 Exide GC135 batteries come in this week. We are scheduled to do our walk through this Saturday the 15th and if all goes well it will be delivered on the 22nd. I've already made the 1st payment on it and its not even in my possession yet. Can't wait. I would like to take it out for its maiden voyage for out anniversary weekend of April 11th.

Down-sizing

We are downsizing from a 30E35TS Titanium. Owned aTitanium since they were first introduced by Glendale in 2001. Great company to work with --too bad they went "belly up" after 62 years. Looked at a Winnebago Towable -- couldn't deal. Looked at the Shasta and loved a floorplan -- until we discovered it was discontinued. looked at the Rockwood -- nice -- but couldn't deal. Happened upon the Crusader -- a 2013 290RLT leftover -- and my wife fell in love with it ( had fabric furniture vs. the leather which she hates) needless to say we bought it and it is being prepped for delivery on the 21st. It will be a big change for us because the Titanium had all the "bells and whistles plus"
