It was a day of orders..

1) a part of screw jacks to try and take some more bounce out of the rig
2) a weBoost Drive 4G-X Cell Phone Booster Kit
3) a WiFi Ranger Elite pack
4) a new 6" round ceiling vent that is closeable (thanks to whoever posted the link to it); soon my bathroom won't be near freezing any time the A/C is on
5) some gloves for sewer handling- I'm usually gloveless, but lately have gotten a bit of the heebeejeebees doing it barebacked
6) and finally, new rubber wheel chocks- my cheap plastic ones have been destroyed

Also researched which air compressor that I want to get since I've since learned that my existing one won't air up my fancy new 125psi tires.

While on the topic of ordering: -
just ordered the Furrion observation/backup camera (bit the bullet, since I found it for $400, instead of $500, instead of making my own hacked solution)
just about to order the TST-507 TPMS with 8 flow-through sensors (4 for truck, 4 for 5th wheel),
and just debating which higher-rated tires to order.

Also about to head over to Lowes on my way home to pick up a new Vise to aid in making the mounting brackets for my Fence-post Sewer-hose storage mod (which is otherwise complete, apart from needing to spray paint it)

At the August FROG rally, the service I requested could not be accomplished at the fair grounds, so FR picked it up today and hauled it back to the factory. Don't know how long they will have it, but I'm confident that the work they will do will be done excellently. The two pressing issues are to replace the roof that has some plywood delamination going on and also to replace a broken black tank valve. Thanks Surveyor and Forest River!

Ohh, I also bought a storage tote that I plan on mounting to my rear bumper to hold my sewer attachments (90- degree elbow, wye, donut). I think I'm going to mount it with big UV-resistant zip ties like I saw on another thread here.

Spent last week at Traverse Bay RV Resort in Williamsburg, Michigan. Ended up making an offer on a lot that was for sale and it was accepted. Looks like we'll have a whole lot of camping days next year.

We have stayed there several times and are going to be there next week. It's a very nice resort.

If that's your pad, it in a very well maintained RV spot, looks more like a private residence then a CG.

I'm thinking of leaving my 45 deg elbow attached to the camper, but could probably get a small storage box for it.
The donut fits in my new (almost finished) fence post holder
What do you need/use a wye for ?
