Talked to the dealer about it today, they say it's ready so I'm going Saturday to pick it up, after I go over it with a fine toothed comb. I'm right against my warranty date, so if it's not just right the rest is on me.

I would soap test the bag, line, connectors, and valve stem. I noticed each time I check my air pressure on hitch it will drop 2 to 5 lbs. So far it's not lost any air and it's been almost a year.

The air bags on the trucks will drop when temps change fast. But I have the guauge and compressor in cab to air up. In the the summer it was a T fitting barely leaking. Not messing with them in the cold and icey ground for now.

Loaded it up and hitched it up, leaving tomorrow afternoon for a winter trip in central PA with 11 other adults and 2 kids. All in their own campers - not mine!

Picked up a Die Hard 750 watt inverter today. Now I can add air to my tires with my compressor when ever I want and won't have to worry about finding an AC source. I feel real good about that.

Don't forget the 8ga wire to run to it!
Did the same thing with Clifford with 1000 watt just had to run 6ga-not fun.

Didn't do anything to the camper but for the camper. Looking online and local sources for the laminate for my cabinets. Sofa drawer came open and busted a hole in the cabinet across from it-and it's rounded so it is probably outside my expertise level of replacement. Sent a few emails to FR- let's see if I get a response besides "go to your dealer"!

I replaced the non locking outside compartment door latches with locking ones.
Now my battery, generator and propane compartments are locked up.

Now back to our regular scheduled posting...

Kinda boring but I inspected my roof, checked the battery water level and just generally fiddled with it!

I REALLY need to hook it to the truck and go somewhere.... ANYWHERE!!!!!
