I don't know what happened to the motor, I picked these up from Doug (Ependydad) in FL. They were missing the motor and one ground pad and were twisted pretty bad. OCW is supposed to be sending me a motor.

Looks like moisture got under the Fillon and it pulled away from the paneling behind it. Find the leak and seal it. It looks like crap but may stay that way for years without getting any bigger.

Someone else staked claim to the motor before Bob. The missing ground pad is because I had the SteadyFast stabilizers on and kept that whole contraption for my father-in-law to fix up when I get back to PA.

Pretty amazing work, OC!

Otherwise, for me- I'm looking for why one of my trailer tires is a 7 pounds down compared to the other 3 after sitting for a couple of weeks. Has happened twice now.

Today I jacked the tire up and spun it looking for a nail or something. No go. I'm going to soap suds/water the valve stem and see if anything shows.

And, just got setup at a new campground today. I swear that I'm camped next to my late Grandma. So far, she's asked the kids if they like strawberries and while we were out left 2 big containers of strawberries on the steps and just stopped by with some fresh strawberry jam!

Any idea how I figure out if that's the case?

Added several shelves in the pantry. Added shelves in both the big closet and the smaller compartment in the bunkhouse. And a pull handle on the screen door.

Over pressurize the tire by 20psi or so, then use a soapy mixture in a spray bottle. Spray the tire first, then the stem. Wheels usually don't become porous, either they are or they aren't. But using that same soapy mix will show it.

Adding pressure to the tire is harmless, it just makes the leak worse. Correct your pressure before towing and you'll be fine.
