Finally after 2 gorgeous days, nice but cool weather, my A128S is unwrapped and parked on the driveway. There were no surprises found in the trailer. It actually still smells new.
I was a bit nervous moving it but I managed to get it out my front yard and parked on my driveway smoothly, all that practice last summer helped.
The tarp cover survived the sharp corners of the trailer,no scratches on the rig's surface and bubble windows. I think I'll use this cover again this winter.
Lol the smoke alarm was still beeping so I removed the 9 volt battery. I had to install the main battery for the electric brakes but removed the fuse after it was parked on the driveway.
The tires lost some pressure especially the spare was down to 40 psi, so I inflated all of them to 65 psi.
The stabilizer jacks were not easy to crank up with the cordless drill so I had to do the old fashion manual way. I'll have to spray them jacks with oil soon.
I tested the front tongue weight without the propane tanks and got 340 pounds, wow not much to spare from the 350 pounds max my TV can handle, not happy.
Opening and closing the trailer was still smooth and easy, I just have to get use to the order, I mess up the first time with the doors.
Oh my gosh so many keys to choose from, looks like I have to try 2 or 3 times before unlocking those locks. I have over 9 locking things...lol
Here are some of the pics I want to remember from this experience:
First time unwrapping, still looks new
Tarp cover and straps to be reused
No surprises inside, smells new and open with ease
Tennis balls and peg to hitch precisely
A128S is front heavy, boo
All parked and just waiting for my first trip this year
I actually enjoyed unwrapping my trailer for the first time. I found no problem with it but I still have to test the water system and see if the blow out winterizing process worked.
Happy unwrapping 2013!
