Say what? Nope, I didn't know to ask and it wasn't on my PDI checklist.
Um yeah, nobody told me that one either. What kind of grease, how much and how often?

Another thing that works great and you would not think of using it because it just never enters the thought train to think of. Fabric dryer sheets. Love bugs, and other bug stuff just rubs off easy. Did this when we washer our camper in the mid summer months after going in the early spring and from the fall of the year before.
Love using this inside of the camper for the clean smell.

Plan on visiting Graceland and the birthplace of the King. Plan on about three weeks out or so stopping and spending time where ever we want. Our last trip of the year is planed for mid November heading south to Galveston and Corpus Christi returning sometime in January, we have family in So Tx. Going to give these new tires a workout.
Well looks like there may be a change in travel plans. DW has been watching the Roosevelt series on the Television, starting to look like we are going to be heading to Mt Rushmore. I'll report our destination as soon as I am sure if we will be going north or east. Got one side waxed

Just went out and looked at my landing gears and what d'ya know. Each one has a zerk fitting! Never knew that and have never seen it written in any service manual, but you have to figure that if the manufacturer installed zerks that you should grease them from time to time. Now I have something to do tomorrow after all.

On our last trip when I turned on the propane there was a strong odor of propane and I've never had this happen before. Put soapy water all over the hoses and couldn't find a leak yet could still smell propane. Shut the tank off and smell went away so left propane off for rest of trip. Since nothing on the tanks bubbled with the soapy water and I couldn't find a leak I had to guess I got a new regulator and installed it. When finished propane was turned on and no smell and soapy water on connections no bubbles. I did notice one thing before when I shut the propane off the gauge would turn red again now it stays clear till you turn on the stove or another appliance.

What did you do to your camper today?

Installed LED's on the awning today- didn't finish running all the wires cause didn't like the on/off switch I had. Ordered different that is supposed to pulse and dim but we will see. Measured new shelf for entertainment center. Tested parallel kit for generators and scratching head on this one- look at my other posting in electrical for PI and 2 eu2k problem for possible help.

PI and 2 eu2k in parallel
