Got the new Maxxair fan from UPS van today planed to install this weekend..

I say "planed" because I was informed that the trailer and fan are going to the dealer for that to happen.



Guess I lost this mod....

So I put the box in the trailer...

Installed our new 22 inch Samsung LED television in the bedroom to replace the 19 inch Jensen that shot craps after just two seasons.

Alot of time after a tire has been repaired and if it isn't cleaned out properly there will be oodles of little rubber balls rolling around

Thanks guys, The tires are tow max power kings. If I've done my homework right there supposed to be a good tire. This is season 2 and only about 1500 miles.
I know tires can be a big debate.

If they are not balanced, they will cup and eventually go bang. Doesn't take very long or very many miles. Got me the 1st time at less than 5,000 miles. $1800 damage and a set of replacement tires (GY Marathons LRD).

What happened to the Jensen? Our Jensen in our previous Lacrosse, had the sound crap out at the beginning of the 2nd season. It was working when I took it out in the spring to store it in the house. When I put it back in, in April.....no sound. Even though it was out of warranty, PT replaced it because it was still IN warranty the last time I used it. That's good customer service.

The Jensen television quit receiving over-the-air signals. It would display the picture when hooked up to cable but it would take a minute or three before it would display the picture. Almost as if it had to warm up before it would work.

Over-the-air was working when we stopped for the night in Memphis but after driving to Livingston, LA it no longer worked. I tried many times over the next 30 days while we were in Gulf Shores to get over-the-air working again but my efforts were all for naught.

I know it doesn't sound like much...but we took the cover off the 5er. We are going camping next weekend. Gonna dewinterize and get the rig ready for a busy summer. We are going to spend a couple weeks in southern Utah and can't wait to be there. Happy camping!!

First shake down on our used 05 Wildcat.

1. Couldn't flip switch on hot water heater. Had some electronics cleaner. Sprayed switch all around. Waited 10 minutes. Switch works again. Had to flip it several times to work freely.

2. Propane regulator switch was leaking. Replaced that.

Camping at Bull Shoals White River State Park, Arkansas. Got here last night, go home tomorrow. Only about 20 minutes from home.

First trip with our new/used 2011 F250 too. It's a gasser, 6.2L. It did fine, if you don't mind letting it rev when it wants too. Click image for larger version
