New from Texas

We picked up 2009 8526 RLS 5th wheel. She's in need of a little TLC, but we're excited to have her. She'll mostly be our home away from home at the deer lease. We plan to put up a cover and keep her onsite. Anyway, we're new to FR having bought and sold an LL Ax first. We decided the racy toyhauler wasn't the life for us.
We're replacing small items so far, but recently dug into the kitchen floor. I think it was wet in the past only in two spots. We're adding a layer to the floor just for safekeeping. We'll also be replacing the rubber gaskets around the slides (yikes!). The hubs is pretty handy, so I think we're alright. Any other 8526 RLS owners, please let us know. I don't think the 26 is made anymore. Haven't seen any new ones on the FR page. Excited to be here. We welcome tips, suggestions, advice!
