Backed her up onto her new, almost finished pad, then drove back off and backed onto the new driveway so we can change out the sway bars. We've been taking turns being sick or just out of sorts, so hoping we can get it done this week. Taking two of the grandkids to the Grand Canyon next week and can't wait to see how she handles.


Happiness is just a ride away!

Does it come with a new vent for the wall of the trailer?

Took the cover off my trailer this past weekend. Of course the first thing it does Monday is sleet. I'm not worried about it, its the constant melting, freezing, melting, freezing that I worry about.
Anyway. I found on the blogs that adding an extra layer of protection to the roof seals is important to extending the life of them. Pictured below, I taped up the seals and added a cabinet handle to the typically permanently closed water filter and pump access door on the Roo.

Yes, you order either a white or black one.

Nothing to the camper, spread the last 21 bags out of 41 bags of pine bark nuggets between the side of the porch and drive and around the front of the house. Now, TOWTA can get off my back. Also had to mow our bumper crop of wild onions yesterday. Oh and I found 15 blades of grass which I also mowed on the 1.48 acres of rock, clay & weeds.

I replaced the blown-out vacuum breaker in our Dometic commode.

Put some stuff back into the basement. It's shocking how much space I have when it isn't littered with kid stuff (toys, pool gear, scooters, you name it).

Picked up a new license plate bracket and an LED plate light with the DOT-required standoff so I have everything needed to pull the standard incandescent taillights and replace them with the Bargman LED units I bought (post #2945). Now for non rainy day to install them and caulk a few other things I noticed opened up after the winter...

Worked from home today so went out in the rain and measured the front pass-through storage compartment for insulation to nip the issue of the head of the bed being cold (as we already experienced) or hot (likely to happen - haven't summered in the new TT yet). There's only the 1/2" of lightweight plywood at the top for the bed and wardrobe platform, and the very HEFTY 2.7mm paneling for the common wall with the cabin... Turns out, I have just enough leftover rigid R5 from some home projects to do the job. Good thing DW is much, much smaller than I!
