Full systems check, found the junky electronic deadbolt to be......Junk. Tried to reset the code, by the directions, no joy. Reset by pulling the batteries. The factory code makes the motor twitch, but doesn't make the bolt move. I'll take it apart tomorrow and see if I can at least make it work properly manually.

Otherwise all checked out fine and ready to go boondocking in a few weeks!

Took my MicroLite 18FBR to a local KOA in VA Bch on Thursday. Had to replace the shower faucet. Replaced the stock shower head with an Oxygenics while I was at it. Blew up my microwave, so I bought a new one. Tomorrow I'll figure out how to get it installed right. Today I jerry-rigged a battery platform on top of my a frame behind the propane tanks and mounted battery boxes for the 2 new group 27 batteries I had to get two days ago. Got them all installed and working right. I can't wait to relax on this trip... Well, football is tomorrow and my Giants are on Monday night... Beer is cold, so life is good!

Was that the Oregon/Michigan State game in your photo? We are just driving back to Portland after being there, so it made me lol a bit.

Yes, I was testing out the TV antenna. Ducks were on the short end at the time.

Dropped it off to have some things fixed that I missed during the pdi. The dealer seems to be totally cool with all the items. It's nice working with a dealer that's been around for 30+ years!

EZ LUBES

Be extremely careful with pumping all that grease into those axle tubes, it does not take very much at all to have it come out the backing seal, then you really have problems. I would recommend removing the bearings and had pack them along with the axle tube, then you know nothing got into the brake system, does not take much at all to mess up a whole lot of stuff, trust me!

Nothing, because we don't pick it up from the dealer until tomorrow. Our PDI is at 11.

Added water pump switch

Add a switch in the docking station to allow us to control the water pump outside when dumping or when stopping for a quick potty break...

DIY: 38FL Remote water switch
