Check your slide out really well. On our brand new Sabre the slide seals were tipped and pulling away from the wall. The window stripping was also pulling off. A mobile repair tech figured it all out when we had him looking at the hole in our propane line (slide pinched it and put a hole in it). Turns out the hole in the wall the slide goes thru appears to have bern cut incorrectly. The top is wider than the bottom. It is too narrow and pinching the slide and pulling /tearing the slide seals. Ours is returning to the factory in October for repairs. Your issue sounds like it could potentially be from something similar.

Looks great. I'm about to start my 5r storage area at home. If you don't mind me asking what was your out of pocket expense ? I'm thinking about concrete. I can set my own forms and finish but your route looks like might be cheaper and easier.

I spend about $650 for a 10'X23' pad. It is about 3" deep of medium size stone. I used a manual compacter. I used the first three of $1.30 pavers just to make sure I have good sure place for hook up. I looked at concrete but it would be about double the cost because I do not want a concrete truck crushing me drive way. I also decided to use bags instead of a dump because I did not want rocks in another part of my yard. So, I basically used the $3 bags of medium grey stone from Home Depot. I framed it with 4x4s that I salvaged from a shed tear down last year.

Recharged my portable water softener and camping 1 more night at the trottage. We have 1 more weekend then need to winterize before CDN Thanksgiving in 2 weeks.

I levelled the back of the trottage so the rear door doesn't jam at he bottom any longer.

waxing

Finished waxing one side of the RV. Man it sure is big when you start rubbing all over it!
Researched waxes and settled on maquires premium marine cleaner wax. Gets the gelcoat looking great, but it has been a real pain getting it off. Think it may be due to have used 303 protectant in the past. Labor of love and a little OCD...
