Paid for my storage lot for another year. Inquired about my rebate on the stock OEM slippers that were on the trailer. $300 bucks next week! New tires were only $350 bucks now! Getting ready for our trip to MI October 22.

When we opened up our Microlite 18FBR this year, I found a lot of wasp carcasses. I looked outside at the vent cover for the stove and it was missing. I've been planning on finding a way to fix it all spring and summer, but never got around to it. We replaced our range hood at home and I kept the filter screen on a hunch. Well today, I finally got around to fixing the vent on the TT. I used the screen from the range hood at home. Kinda cut it and bent it to fit. Doubled the screen mesh part to make it harder for little bugs to get in. Fits really snug and secure. I've got to tug pretty hard to get it out. May still throw some caulk on it to secure it better if I need to. But I'm happy with it. I also installed a battery disconnect and cut down my bumper-mounted stinky slinky holder by about 7" so I can work the stabilizer crank without skinning my knuckles each turn... Not a bad day camping!

Upgraded the tires to D's, finished installing led's in the awning, resealed the door taken off to run wiring for LEDs, verified the new 30 amp plug at the house works, and installed reflective sunshades for the main windows when in storage. Now...hoping our mountain campground opens up next weekend so we can finally start our camping season.

Adjusted the kitchen slide (yet another thing the dealer couldn't handle) then lubed the tracks and rails. It took me 20 minutes, why can't they handle this stuff?

Might be one more camping trip this year then I'll winterize her, dang it.

Re-routed my brake wires after one scuffed, chaffed and grounded the controller into a no braking, direct short on our way back home from the last trip. Easy job but hated pulling the tires\drums.....just did that in the spring with a bearing re-pack.

We put a cover on it for the next two weeks to keep it out of the sun.

Homemade stabilizer bars

Made a huge difference. Prolly too %95 of the side to side wiggle out. Bal x chock takes the front to back out.

I did nothing TO my trailer today... I did something FOR it. Remember that old movie wherein the flesh-eating plant was always saying "Feed Me!!"? I heard my trailer say that so I removed the 30 amp breaker and plug and installed a 50 amp breaker and plug. Now the Wildcat gets all the juice it needs.

The 5r's tucked away in storage. Giving the new TV some love by putting in Weather Tech floor mats front and back.
Next will be the brush guard and then the auxiliary fuel tank / tool box combo.
