Glenn did the 10 year old Boy across the street install the Bed saver? Did you let him ride the New scooter yet? Did you pay him the New MW of 15.00$ per hr? Youroo!!

If you put your foot on the pad of the landing gear that goes up first (usually it's the driver side) you can hold it down so the other side can go up a little. Then you can do your "tug" test.

Enjoy that new to you truck. If you ever have any questions or concerns just give a yell. I love my 6.0. Almost 160,000 miles now. Maintenance and what to look for is key!

Turned on the refrigerator, water heater, replaced all the batteries in the TST Flow thru sensors, aired all 5 tires to 65#, washed the truck for the 1st time since we got back from FL, filled it with gas. Still have to check tire pressures on truck and check oil level. Then we'll probably leave either Thurs, Fri or for sure Sat. Got 580 miles to go and only 3-1/2 days to drive it.

Also washed TOWTA's old junker and had to drive over to Butler Built and pick up awning pole brackets.

Washed the awning.... I should have checked here on FRF before I spent hours scrubbing. Next time I will spray on the cleaner and roll the awning in and let it soak.
