Hay is for horses, cows, etc. I think you mean Hey, Hey. Didn't know you could read, TURBS can't (of course he has an excuse as he was ban from the Iowa school system his first day of kindergarten.)

Yup, ordered a bed. Now, it has to arrive at approximately the same time as us in 3-4 weeks after a campground change and (flying) trip back to our hometown!

Ordering stuff is tricky.

It was a little chilly (60s) this morning, so actually tested the furnace for the first time. Thought it'd be a good idea to test it before our trips at thanksgiving and around Christmas. Thankfully all seems to work fine.
Also liking the new digital thermostat, which I installed 2 weeks ago just after our last trip

Nothing to the camper, but finally got around to making a carrier for the Sherline gauge and accessories instead of a cardboard box.

We tried out the built-in vacuum for the first time yesterday. Had the trailer for over a year, first time using the vacuum. Works pretty slick.

One of these days I'm going to test out my black tank flush...

I love ours. My daughter drug the hose outside to cleanup her mess of a seat. Stores nice and compact.

Built in vacuum ?!? What is this black magic ?
We just store a small upright vac (laying down) in the under-bed storage area, with the bed linen

Love my central vac! It was one of the things that I added on after the fact.

Saddest day of the year...blew out the lines then added the red stuff and parked her.
But the wife still has camping fever so may get her out and go visit Phoenix or Flagstaff in a month or so!!!

I tried mine out (before I buy it) only had 3 inches of clearance, Reese revolution on a pullrite 3100. Is there a way to raise the hitch or lower the king pin?

How did the camping go? Did you enjoy Wekiwa Springs? I hope so. I'd love to hear some 1st hand experiences from folks camping here in FL.

Cheers,

Joe
