Sorry Charlie, mine is not solar, it's 12 volt and has a dusk to dawn switch to turn it on/off automatically. Same as my awning lights do.

Not what I did *to* it, but what I did "about it";

Called the dealer to check on progress.

EVERY item on my list (many of which were pure nitpicky) are done except they're waiting on the new wall clock...hey, it didn't keep time! Ever priced a new one at CW?....and the frame and window above the stairs to arrive from the factory.

(the window frame was warped and caused the window to crack in two places, two vertical cracks all the way from top to bottom...knew it was warped cuz it won't open more than 2") Yeah, it was mostly likely there when we got the PDI, but how many of you check that tiny little window up by the ceiling? They didn't question it...just ordered a whole new window.

We told 'em we didn't need it back 'til July 1st (carried it in the weekend after Memorial Day) but dang our back yard looks HUGE and empty without it sittin' out there...ready to bring 'er home.

After first glance at the pic, I thought that's what I do when I drink too much coffee.

Placed 5x7 photos of my family's camping trips that we have taken since 2001. Bought the 5x7 plastic frames and hung them upside down on the ledge on top of the slide. Also put some on the outside of the cabinet doors. The photos tucked behind the cabinet door trim. It makes it seem a lot more like home. Also got two folding sawhorses for Father's Day to set the grill on. Mounted the TV and bought some more storage containers. Hung a key rack inside and a key rack for the awning clamps in the front storage area.

..
When closing on windy days we have someone holdin each pole in the locked position.
I also use deflappers and bungy them to the arms.

Have you thought about using a
three section Pole? They're shorter in overall length when closed

Got out the ladder, cleaning solutions, brushes, hose and cleaned the top of my Fifthwheel. Cleaned it last year, not to bad this time, will be ok till September when I will clean and reseal. Ounce of prevention worth all the effort.

If you can anchor the rollers to the plywood, you should be able to do it. I welded the track and made the frame out of 1-1/2" x 1/8" angle and welded everything. Here are pictures of Glenn Jurcyzk's rack.

OC you have been plagiarized. Saw this in my trailer life email today

Yesterday I modified the fridge fan removed the ultra noisy one and replaced with 2 quiet ones with more cfm. Made a aluminum flashing to cover the wood chimney they had supplied. Went to replace the water pump, dealer jammed and covered under warranty, so I did it. I found the coax for the antenna was all cut up and taped, repaired this now the antenna works better. Also checked the water filter. Maybe I have a different type but it is as tight when I installed it in April.
