I checked brake linings, greased axle bearings, got both propane tanks filled, and tried to figure out where to camp Easter weekend.

That's usually my MO, but I was on a roll this weekend.
I don't feel much like a superman right now...there's not one part of my old body that doesn't ache.

Well, it's official. My poles overlap one of my storage hatches when they would be in the stowed position. Even if I drill a new hole higher up in the inner pole - the bottom pole still hang low enough that it would block the door. I bought a new pin for the top and just pin it to the upper bracket instead of using the nylock nut and bolt. Guess they'll officially ride in my bumper.

How much does it overlap? You can remove the outer pole and cut up to about 10" off the bottom of the inner pole.

Come on man, use some Yankee ingenuity!

They make poles that are in 3 sections instead of 2. Making them a shorter profile when stowed.

I used ingenuity- I bought new pins! Now it is a no tools setup/take down.

I'll see how much of a hassle putting them up and taking them down turns out to be. The new pins really make it easy.

A hacksaw on the inner pole will make it even easier. Don't have to remove them. Just pin them in the stow brackets.

Yup, this is what I did on my 34tbok, as the rear arm was over the pantry pass thru door. Easy free fix and I don't have to take the arms off to travel.

Had a good weekend. Installed 12 V outlets on each side so I could use my 12V compressor to air the tires. Put three support straps under the FW tank (it really sagged when filled, previous one burst). Rerouted and extended some wiring that was too tight and pinched under the GW tank. Added baffle and fans to the fridge vent to help cooling. I have been going through this NTU unit for several months (preventive maintenance), checking wiring for chaff/pinch points, cleaning/waterproofing electrical connections. Cleaning up the wiring mess in the WH compartment. Cleaning/repairing water lines, etc. Plan on going west for several weeks/month later this year and trying to avoid any obvious problems. Have some additional items to address, but making progress.
