Not much, rain and thunderstorms since yesterday. Looking forward to a Clear day so I can get the Awning brackets that I got from OC and polls installed.

Do you rent the storage for a specific amount of time and leave it there to get your monies worth or is the storage site closed from X date to X date?

I keep mine at home so I am just asking.

Yes... and no.

Our county gov. runs the fairgrounds here. The 4-H has a covered pavilion at the fairgrounds where they show animals. The pavilion is PACKED with rv's from the end of Oct/first of Nov until we are notified we can pick up our rv's. If a person's rv is accessible, then it can be picked up before the end date, which this year is April 12. Mine is backed right up to one of the steel posts supporting the roof and there are other rv's in front of it. Therefore, I have to wait. It really is a sweet deal - all the money collected for the storage fees goes to the 4-H.
We were on a list to get the TT in for storage. We had our Roo at the house in the driveway for 3 of the 5 years we had it. During our winters, I prefer our TT be stored. Just a matter of preference. For us, we normally don't start camping until May anyway.

Getting ready for our seconded trip, going shopping today for more accessories. This week going to popup camper and rearrange some items, build a bucket light, and a box step. Order brake controller in process of installing 7 way on the jimmy. One problem, the fish are killing it.

Brackets painted yesterday and today I just finished the pole installation.

I added a thin layer of 3m gasket type tape to the back side of the upper brackets. Just in case I want to take them off at some point, then the arms wont be scratched. Thinking it also helps to reduce the twisting back n forth.

I do have a small gap where the bottom bolt hole is on the top bracket. Thinking of picking up another bolt n nut for the bottom hole and just kiss the bracket.
