That's what the dusk to dawn light I gave you is for, just dim the awning lights and leave them on. Never had anyone say a word about them or the one on the flag on the pinbox.

Yesterday we got it closed up and winterized for the year. Finally ran my black tank flush for the first time. No problems there.

Why don't you use your black tank flush more often than just during winterizing? The flush breaks up solids and help tissue and other gunk from solidifying on the walls. After it hardens, the black tank flush won't help much.

Braved the 53 degree weather and put a red vinyl insert in the back bumper. Pictures aren't very good, but it sure makes the bumper stand out and is easier to see.

Most important & main thing is TOWTA LIKES IT!

Installed the Camco 36543 pump converter winterizing kit and winterized the A192HW. All went well and got it closed up for the winter. I just realized that I forgot to take the battery out of the smoke detector!

Stays up on it's own, not like the jack switch boxes which won't.

That was the very first thing I did when we got our 12Flagstaff 5er home in Feb2012.

What are you referring to? Haven't added anything other than the red vinyl insert.

Been 2 tubes back there for at least 2+ years, ask Glenn. You need to get your glasses changed or open your eyes when you look at something.

Today I looked at the forecast, looked at the Rockwood. Waiting on winterizing. We have some warm weather on the way!

So on my way to Florida the other day.. I saw for the first time a stinky slinky laying on the shoulder... Looked like one of the cheap "RV Kit" ones you get when getting a new trailer... Shortly after was the plastic tube it used to be in... LOL

Heh, I guess that's a good reminder to check those brackets and bolts every now and then.

My mod seems very secure (for now). I think the nylock nuts help for sure, and fixing the fencepost to the bracket also. Several nuts/bolts would all have to come loose at the same time for it to come off. (so a periodic check is definitely a good idea, to keep those odds low)
