Btw, I liked your recount of the things you have learned. All good pointers!

Invest in a TPMS System for your trailer. Thank me later. I really REALLY like the 507 system from TST. It served me very well.
Stop often. Look at historical and geological markers. Go into a tourist trap now and then.
Don't forget to enjoy the journey.
The fifth wheel is a lot of work to maintain, but so much more comfortable than the tent we used to camp in. After three nights in the tent, my wife and I were ready to come home. After seven nights in the fifth wheel we are just getting into the groove.
Great tips!

I blow out my water lines as well. Just remember to keep the air pressure around 20 psi.
Thanks so much! Foley5000!!

It was right where you said it would be. So unfortunately, one week from today, I'll be winterizing it and then coming home from the last trip of the season.

No problem, glad you found it! Good luck on your last trip. I have two or three left before the melancholy winterizing ritual.

I'm kind of looking forward to winterizing her. As of this very instant, I'm also looking forward to fall and winter. I hope we actually get a fall this year. Historically we go from 85 one day to snow the next. You'll want to avoid me near the end of January though. I'll be fed up with below zero temps and ready to pack everything up and move south!

We just closed on a 2014 293REX hopefully will try it out the following weekend. I had traded a 2013 Crossroads due to constant maintenance issues and can't wait to take it out on it's first trip. On the bumper of mine there is a sticker that warned of putting aftermarket attachments on will void the warranty. FR has a bike rack but I haven't looked into it.
