Got the front and back satellite cables hooked together and into the satellite box. Found out you cannot use a regular splitter as they must have diodes in them to prevent using the outputs to feed the input. Found a cable/satellite switch in my junk and modified it temporarily until I get the 3 into 1 adaptor. With the 3 into 1, I will be able to use the front, back or tripod for the Tailgater without hooking or unhooking cable anywhere but to the Tailgater itself.

Now, to find out what is wrong with my awning lights.

Started to create and mount the sewer hose holder. Used 4x4 fence post instead of the 5. Rhinoflex still fits (can see in picture). Used flatbar and just just bent into the shape of the brackets. Need to get endcaps since the post covers wont work for me. Now gotta pull it off and paint it.

It is a LTZ model, so has no factory bumper. Maybe a weight saving thing?

Opened the slides up and inspected everything to make sure it survived the winter. Went to the store to re-stock as much non-perishable stuff as we could. Got one of my propane tanks re-filled.

I thought they were both empty last year but it turns out one of them was still full. Need to investigate why it didn’t switch over to the full tank automatically.

Also put down some grass seed to try and fill in the numerous bare spots on our site. Our new trailer sits in a different spot than the old one did so there is a lot of dirt that was previously covered by the old trailer and deck.

put our grill together, took pictures of a couple modifications we have done. One Is the plate rail above medicine cabinet so things don't fall off, the other is the pull out gutter in post cover for sewer hose and attachments. Also added a few things to food cabinet that I want to keep in there this summer. Happy Camping..

I installed my Progressive Industries surge protector in our Sunseeker 3170ds. Took about 40 minutes from start to finish.

it was a left over piece we found in the garage. even the coloring was aged by itself. Think it was left from inlaws and not sure where it was purchased. Check online at some of the home improvement stores sometimes they only get a few pieces in at a time. We used adhesive and brad air nailer to attach it.

Finally was able to wash winter off the Rockwood. Warm enough and the snow melted off the roof. Opening the awnings and other than a odd leaf left from last fall at Frankenmuth Jellystone a quick rinse and they are ready to go.
