Well not my camper per say. I worked on my Generator that arrived this week for the Rockwood. Oil filled, gassed up and load test. -20 today so it was a good test with 0 w 30 oil. The fuel injection 4 kW generator is super quiet, has full metering including volts, amps and watts, electronic fuel level. Powerhouse makes a good unit and it was the same price as a EU 2000 i Honda and parallel kit at $1400, would still need to spend $1200 for another generator.

Pulled it from the back of the property to the "Launch Pad" to "Spingize" it! You know...sanitize the fresh water system...op check all the systems & appliances!! Getting ready for our next trip!!!

"Spingize" ....because I refuse to use that W word! As in "DeW...ize" or " I'm so done with "W....r" and ready for spring!

Another 2 inches of snow here, so decided we needed to angle the roo so the front was higher than the back for melting drainage, didn't want the ice block to allow water to flow back into the AC, we just bought this a month ago so didn't get it covered when the first round of weather hit, temp made it to 36 but is back to 33 and dropping .... we are ready for a maiden voyage but weather just not cooperating....

Checked on Rocky today. Had a foot of unplowed snow in the lot but the 4x4 Tundra tore through it like a fat kid on a cupcake! I was going to bring batteries home to charge but they are at max level do just got the hitch so I can put together my new Rock Tamers at the house....supposed to be near 50 Friday and I'm off that day...we can feel spring coming!!!

Well it was actually Friday,not today, but I cleaned off the roof of the Windjammer for I believe, the fifth time. Left side of photo under my fat finger. Undisturbed snow at my rural property is 25" and I am tired of it!

New accessories and mod supplies keep stockpiling in the basement. :-) Surge protector arrived on Friday from Amazon. Sequoia table legs are expected from CW tomorrow. New electric skillet (with warming tray) expected from Sears next week. Checked on the Vibe 6504 last weekend and it's all good. Took some time to trudge through the snow and familiarize myself more with the outside and underbelly layout and accessories. We put it to storage as soon as we got it last Fall. Wife and daughter are excited and we are all looking forward to our first camping trip in May!!

I chased down my dealership's service manager who assured me my trailer was fixed and that I can pick it up tomorrow afternoon when his main guy can do a walk-through with me and show me what all they've done. Today's conversation with this S.M. went much better than our last communications.

I may give my trailer a hug, too.

Removed the leaking vacuum breaker on the black tank flusher. Don't understand running 5' hose from the tank & inlet up under the bathroom vanity with a 90 fitting thru' a restriction, another 90 turn and back down to the flusher. Tried it out and it sure seems to put more water into the tank now.

Went to the storage yard... Slipped on snow/ice/slush/wet mess and tossed out my share of vulgar expletives... Checked the tension of all of the cover's straps and cinches because we have another storm coming in with 20-50mph gusts with the snow tomorrow, and then rain, and then snow... Mercy already! Mercy.

I looked to the east and waved. We had meant to head out to the CG this weekend to check on it but other things came up.
