Adjusted brakes, and torqued lug nuts after having china bombs replaced. Properly inflated new tires. Cleaned out entire RV to include vacuuming and cleaning shower. I'm now ready to roll next weekend!

Ours is sitting out in the driveway. I have been going out there and cleaning, doing a little inspecting and trying to decide what needs to be done next. I try to open the awning when the sun is shining to let the water drain out and let it air out some. I am getting the I want to go camping fever...but will have to wait. I think next week if warm....I will take off my stabilizer's, clean and inspect them. I might even give them a good coat of paint if needed. I have already pulled my battery box, propane tanks and repainted the area.

I found the problem is there is only a small opening. When I replaced mine with one of those LED "paddles", which is directional, most of the light now comes out of the hole. If you stick with a regular bulb you might be able to line the inside with aluminum foil to get more light out.

Gave the dealer the fridge information for a new LED light on the inside. Original one never worked.

Not today, but yesterday she got hitched with another truck. Getting some warranty work and pin box upgrade done. I'll admit, I'm hella excited about the pin box upgrade!

I'm getting the Trail Air/Tri Glide. Right now I have just a plain ole fixed pin box.

If we still have bounce in the truck or stuff is getting rattled around back in the camper, I'm going to have shocks added to it.

And then eventually, I will swap the truck's shocks for Bilsteins.

Very Nice!!

Have been pondering the tri-glide since our last trip, guy next to us had one on his camper, had a slick setup for airing it up and down and I was very impressed with his story of how it tamed the bucking beast that it used to be.
Now comes the hard part, ours is not a bucking beast, DW has not complained once about any harshness or chucking and to be honest we probably do not "need" it but....

Yeah, I've been lusting after this thing since we got the camper and the stars finally all aligned. I'll have my first tow with it in February or March but it'll be a good one- like 600 miles.

My wife hasn't complained, but I'm hopeful it tames things out. The truck gets bouncy with almost any trailer - from my 3500 lb. pop up to my sister's 6k TT to this fifth wheel. But I also have no idea what "normal" is- I've never been in another vehicle (riding or driving) towing anything moderately heavy except for my Durango with the same pop up. We'll see.

Hate, angst, pain, and woe.

It doesn't help that I let myself fall on ice on the driveway while carrying both 30 lb. propane tanks and about 15 minutes after telling my wife to avoid and be safe in that area.

Took my coach into Ford dealer after noticing a leak around then oil pan....its has 11,340 miles on it, 8 months in use. Two oil changes, prior now 3 with this last service. It was discovered or so they say that the leak was transmission fluid pushing passed the resivoir dip stick. Here is the rub....between Forest River, my RV dealer and or Ford from jump street that the resivoir had been over filled and they would not cover any damage to the transmission if there was any and I would have pay for the service to drain it and make it right. Needless to say we are having words.

When someone kicks a puppy, white stuff falls from the sky. When someone kicks a kitten, it becomes ice.

At least that's how I understand.
