After giving it a good wash I gave the front cap a good coat of 303 hand buffing it with micro fiber cloth. Will probably spend a few hours each morning in the cool air giving the rest of it a good waxing.

Just got the Winfield RV cross-brace stabilizers and some x-chocks. Gonna see how well they stabilize together, before considering getting 1 or 2 pairs of BAL lockarms for extra front-back stabilization.
I'll post here with feedback once I've installed them, hopefully next weekend.
Also just got my shopping list together for doing the fence-post sewer hose storage

Cut up a 4x6 treated wood in four equal pieces and attached carrying straps with staple gun, these platforms are for my 4 scissor jacks on my trailer.

The kit gets you two claws, a carrying bag, a cheap hammer, and a pair of crappy straps. I was pressed for time and the extra money for prime shipping was what swayed me. Given if you're normal, don't waste your money on the "kit".

I couldn't get dog tie-downs into the ground here. However, the Claw made it in just fine. It's super secure from what I can tell. I'm looking forward to what it is like to take out and how it takes to getting into different grounds.

A bit more on "The Claw". We had them in the ground and the ratchet straps taut (actually, they were probably a bit over kill). It held without budging at all. The straps didn't slacken any.

Removing the claw from the ground- I followed the instructions and it was easy as pie. No force, no hard work. Definitely slower than dog tie downs since it is 3 "nails" that have to come out at proper angles vs. just unscrewing a dog tie down. But nothing to complain or fuss about.

I did notice once of the nail has a slight bend to it. I'm going to see if I can find replacements/backups at a hardware store or just order some extras from the company who makes the claw.

Based on this one experience- I rate this at a strong buy.
