Nada. The winter up here was too cold and too much snow. On my spring list, if I can get to it, is:

  • Add Shurflo accumulator tank
  • Add a TV
  • Add shelving to my wardrobe.
  • Add a privacy screen between the back bunk and bathroom and the kitchen.

I was thinking of putting a cable outlet outside for tailgating on my 183. Not sure if anyone has done it yet.

Once the snow melts and we bring the trailer out of it's winter home,

1) Install awning poles that we ordered from OC
2) Install additional circuit breaker and add an outlet near converter area
3) Install the 30" splash guards in shower area
4) Get all of our camping gear located and stored in trailer (took delivery late October)

Really hoping to start on all this first week in April but I have to realize it is SE Michigan and Mother Nature may still have some nasty weather to throw at us.

Way too cold here, but sitting in various locations throughout the house waiting for the thaw is:

1) Fencepost/Gutter for sewer hose storage
2) Led light strips for under awning
3) Second led light strip for counter lights in kitchen
4) Audio cables to feed sound from TV back to Genesis (for when the iPad's hooked up to the tv.)
5) iPad hookup for tv.
6) Light for pass-thru storage
7) Plywood to build a pull out shoe rack to tuck shoes under edge of the bed.
8) I'm sure I had more on the list......

On the maintenance/repair side of things, aside from the standard dewinterizing, cleaning, etc..:

1) Check if battery needs to be replaced, if so, replace
2) Refill the one empty propane tank I didn't get around to filling in the fall.
