Washed the roof of the 5er and discovered a small gouged tear about the size of your pinkie fingernail right above the wardrobe slide about an inch in from the curved side. Must of been a small branch falling on it. Will let it dry real good and then get the acetone and Eternabond and make a small patch. Damn the roof was filthy and we had it washed in FL the first of Mar. May wash the camper tomorrow and hire someone to put the Scotchgard Marine Liquid wax on it and again I may hire them to wash it too.

I spent the afternoon yesterday visiting the 5er in storage. I checked to make sure there is a 12v power supply near the vent in the kitchen. Since there was I went ahead and ordered the maxxfan 7000k I've had my eye on.
While I was in there I thought I'd take a look at the main AC to see if I can find out why the air output felt low in some of the vents. Well, I found it and after spending an hour or two fixing the vent issues I think i have 2 of the 6 vents taken care of. I'll need another day to go over the rest of them and fix the mess that is the air ducts.

What did you find wrong with the vents and ducts?

Patched the spot with a pc of Eternabond about the size of your thumbnail and then put a 2" x 3" pc with rounded corners over the top after gluing down the small tear. Should keep the elements out.

Stopped off at my county tax accessors for the THIRD TIME to get the trailer registered. Found out I was missing an inspection. !@#$@#. Picked up the 5er and took it to the local inspection place I've been going to for the past 8 years, parked it in the pizza joint parking lot next door, and expected them to inspect it, same as always. No sir, you have to be in our (tiny) lot. We have to do a brake test now. Over there, in that tiny alley with the hairpin turn you can't get through.

Grrr

Brought the trailer home, and started looking for someone with a LARGE area that I can take it to. Discovered that most of the places the state says does trailer inspections do not in fact do trailer inspections.

Also found out that Texas isn't found of the certificate of origin's weights, and that I may have to *empty everything out of the trailer* and take it to be weighed. It took three hours to put it all in there. Crossing my fingers this doesn't have to be done. (Sounds like the state doesn't like trailers purchased out of state, if you ask me)

Bah.

Received PI 30 amp power protector, and new temp/time display for wall.
