This weekend; washed and polished, scrubbed crud from underside of awning (looks new again), treated rubber roof over slides, lubricated stabilizer jack gears, lubricated hitch, tightened wheel lug nuts, changed batteries in TPMS sensors and adjusted tire air pressure. All set for a week in Traverse City, MI.

Gave it a place to park that's no longer on the street!
Got rid of the side yard, removed some old tree stumps, moved some rock, did a little excavation and brought in roughly 32 tons of rock.
I did a lot of prep work but hired a contractor to move dirt, remove stumps and bring in the rock and pack it. Now to add a 110 outlet on the side of the house.

One always feels better when you can store at home. Less worries about theft and damage...it's there when you want to do something and the money you save per month surly can be used elsewhere. Lots of work to get to this point, but well worth the effort.

As you can kind of tell in the picture I live on a side street that is a dead end so I've been parking it there on the side of the street... Always worried about someone hitting it or screwing with it. Feel much better of it sitting on my property.

And when you add power you'll love it even more. I also live in city, but I was able to widen driveway 12' and lucky that street is fairly wide to make backing in do-able. And the neighborhood busy bodies can kma!

I have a solar system on the trailer so I don't worry about batteries. I mostly want it to kick the fridge on a couple days before a trip to get it to temp.
