The DW likes it much better, so I'm pleased with that
New ladder, looks like a challenge!

I'm with the DW, it's looks nice 2!

Good job!

We'll just started on an upgrade to my slide area going to turn it into a bunk area. Tore out the dinette area to find the floor on the slide to be rotten. So this is going to be a little set back that I was not expecting Click image for larger version

Pulled it to the dealer for a list of warranty work. Nick knack things mostly, little stuff like a bit of flashing that came loose, window trim that came out.

Big things, rear window started leaking and the large slide is getting out of whack a bit. Both no problem according to the write up guy.

Oh, took his time, we talked about the issues, he wrote everything down even if it's actually normal, they're going to check to see if there's a better way. Another perk for RV World of Ga. Thus far I've been really happy with them.

I told them I need it back Sept 1st, he said I should be able to come get it by Aug 15th. Long trip coming end of Sept/early Oct so here's hoping!

Brought the trailer home for this weekend's trip. Last trip we had sewer scent wafting in, so I bought a pair of 360 Siphon Vent Caps. I climbed up to the roof to check out how difficult it was going to be to scrape off the Dicor around the vent...and found it wet with condensation.

Somehow, a LOT of my very cold air is blowing out of the sewer vent directly! Inside, the AC's only been putting out cool-ish air - this air was COLD.

I've got a scheduled appointment with the local dealership on Monday to have the AC looked at, and will be bringing this to their attention.

Does FR do this on purpose to vent the tank?

Update: Back on the roof this morning, the black water vent pipe was passed through one of the AC ducts, and there's a 1/2" or more gap all around it. That's where all the cold air is escaping from. I'm sealing that up and installing the 360 Siphon cap, since I had to remove the old cap assembly to diagnose the problem.

Sorry, Worked 5 years as a set up person in a heavy equipment fabrication shop. I always liked projects for the challenge.
