^^^^^^^ Total agreement on the closet space issue.
Something we really miss from the previous trailer. That main closet was tall enough, that I was able to add two shelves at the bottom for towells storage.
Really like your idea on the battery tender, as I really hate to leave mine just setting up on the tongue. Gonna look that idea over when I get back.
Just got back from dropping off the trailer at the service dept again. Tried the water heater operation out a couple more times today, and every time it runs 45 minutes to an hour continuously and then blows the relief valve (but still continues to heat).
If they tell me that they can find nothing wrong again.....
I'm afraid i'll be going back to the remedial anger management and sensitivity training class, AGAIN!
Leaving a week from tomorrow now, so it's gotta be finished up.
Got the quick-fist mounts in today and installed by each door to hold a 5 and 7 lb extinguisher.
The billet grill and pre-runner bar for the f350 are done at the powdercoater and I can pick up tomorrow. Original coating on the grill was coming off, and the bumper needed refinishing after several years. More work to complete.
New 5-position chip on its way from Diesel Performance to replace the US Gear chip I've had in there for many years. That chip and the ATS transmission have always conflicted a bit, so I hope this will settle that down (mostly OD issues), plus give me a lot more range on the HP settings (up to 150+hp
) at the highest settings. The US gear was +70 I believe....
Gotta be optimistic the water heater is easily fixable. I have no idea where the water temp control thermostat is,as the little diagram only show the gas & elec overtemp switches. Not sure if its in the igniter module (easy change) of it internal like the overtemps are..
After over a year of non-stop overtime at work, the last 5 months at 80 to 90 hrs wk, and no vacations (even last summer), I am more than freaking ready to get away for a couple of weeks!!! Wife says I have to leave my phone at home
Was looking at Crater Lake webcams yesterday, and looks like close to 8' of snow still at the visitor center, though the park is open. Mount St Helens has always intrigued me as well as the costal hwy. Lots to see & do.
