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.

That's the main reason I haven't drained the pink stuff out of the TT. This time of year around here, hard telling what the temps are going to be. Last night didn't get below 65 degrees. Either tomorrow night or the next, it's supposed to be down around 31!
I'll wait until the end of this month to totally de-winterize.

I spent the majority of yesterday cleaning the Sabre. From roof down to include tops of the slides, and the awning. That was a job! Awning was tough. Used a solution previously mentioned on another post, bleach, warm water, vinegar and dish detergent, rolled it up and waited about 20 minutes. Still had to use just bleach and warm water for the white parts of the awning, top and bottom. Came out great. Pollen took a real toll on the roof and front cap, it came clean as well. DW did the entire inside and we are ready to roll Wed morning.

Attached a 30 amp surge protector to power pole.
Checked air pressure on all tires. Added air as needed...have one with a slow leak despite the fabled Nitrogen being in the tires.
Inspected the TT inside and out as will be heading out in a few weeks...probably to Washington state. Gonna just love that 32 hour trip!
