What did you do to your camper today?

Jacked my prolapsed fresh water tank back into place and shored it up hoping to make it to Goshen without incident. FR warranty told me how to do it... said they would fix it for me at the rally.

Mine fell out three weeks ago. Luckily I was still at home getting ready to leave in the morning. Bent the cheap arse L brackets. Removed the tank and stored it in our shed. Taking the fiver to the dealer Saturday and they said they will rebuild with bigger brackets and straps

DW sewed velcro on our PUGS and we tested to see if the bunks could be folded up with the PUGS left on. It worked! In fact we tested them several times and I even checked around the bunk ends to see if anything was pinching or binding and found nothing of concern. I'm thinking this will save us about 15 - 20 minutes on setup and tear down on future camping trips.

Just to relate my experience, I had high pressure valve stems, NOT all steel, with 507 flow thru sensors and they only made the trip from Concord, NC to Goshen and back to within 25 miles of Concord before one started leaking. The rubber stems WILL NOT LAST.

Unfortunately I have no kids or should I say mine have all flown the nest so its my duty. If he is 16 it will be your duty again soon enough.

Thanks StumpJumper and OC. I'd like to get them, as I have a 3000 mile round trip coming up, but really don't want to pull the tires to have metal stems installed, either. Might as well get the built-in units in that case. Hrmmm.

Replaced the crappy hard foam slab they call a mattress in our 2016 310BHDS with a proper mattress (standard queen size). It adds about 4-5" of height but its going to be well worth it!
