Took out the last few articles of clothing and toiletries. Headed for indoor storage in the morning.

Is there a reason the battery should be removed from the smoke detector? We've not had a problem before. Should they also be removed from flashlights and remote controls? Thanks for any input.

I take the batteries out to prevent corrosion, I also bring the flashlights and remotes into the house while in storage.

Thumbs up

Drove to the Surveyor factory in Goshen to pick up my 5er. Several items that could not be accomplished at the rally were serviced. Among major items was a new roof and a new black tank dump cable. Sure is great how Forest River will bend over backwards to fix stuff that goes wrong. And a special thanks to Susan Thornberg and the techs that did the service. Here's a picture after hooking up in the bull pen area behind the factory. I'm one happy fella!

Prime Time Modification

My wife sleeps on the closet side of our Crusader 290rlt. She keeps sleeping against or hits the side when she gets up. I took a piece of MDF, fabric, foam and made the side cover. First, I cut a piece of cardboard to match the curve in the ceiling, transferred it to the MDF and cut. Rounded all edges. Cut a piece of foam to match, and sprayed adhesive to both MDF and foam. Cut fabric a bit larger than the cutouts, sprayed both backside of fabric and foam. Laid foam side to fabric, and rolled fabric over backside, glued and stapled. Mounted into camper.

I cannot seem to get more than one pic to upload, so here is the final product! We used the fabric from an extra cushion that came with our camper that was torn. Wife pieced it together so it looks like the rest of our camper.

Happy wife!

Our Rockwood is at storage for the winter. Irish spring, bounce sheets and peppermint oil hopefully keeps mice away! The lot is full! No room at the storage inn..

Hey Skip, I take mine out just in case they leak over the winter and ruin the devices . In the summer I can keep a eye on them but during winter I don't see the MH for six months, better to be safe than sorry. Just don't forget the smoke alarm, like "somebody" did. Oops!!!
