We have a easy out site for when we want to hit the road. Just haven't pulled her out since we parked it last year.

Spent most of the morning taken my wedge off and reinstalling my bolts back to the original position of my Revolution pin box. Went to hook up this morning and seen a bolt in my truck bed. Looked around and it was my wedge bolt. LUCKY I found it out. Can't tell what happened except the threads were gone on the rear bolt hole of the pin box. I have been using it for 4 years now, and the threads are only in the maybe 3/16 plate cut in the rear. The front bolt has a nut welded inside to hold that one. Talk about a disaster waiting to happen around a turn. If you are using your revolution I would be checking my rear bolt. I still have my slider so not a big problem. Will take it in and see if they can tap a new thread but still that will only be 3/16" threaded. I do not know why they didn't weld a nut on the inside like the front bolt. Has anyone seen this before? Not much thread to hold that pressure the wedge uses in the jaws.

Installed JT strong-arms today, but only 2 pairs, since using Winfield cross-braces for front side-to-side stabilization.
Due to the wood between the frame I-beam and the underbelly cover on the 5th wheel I had to use longer 3/8" bolts, so had to make a detour to Lowe's.
I installed the rear stabilizers front-to-back rather than side-to-side since there's no suitable cross-beam, and I think it will give better stabilization.
I'll post pics tomorrow hopefully

Wife and I signed all of the paperwork for our new Work and Play Ultra LE CB25! Went through the add on stuff, stopped at Camping World and picked up a few item. Will pick it up sometime mid-late Feb when I head to Lake Charles, LA for a couple of weeks.

Nothing to the camper, but had a wonderful visit to OC's Campground B&B with Youroo and Joyce. Wonderful visit and really enjoyed Gary and Joyce. So glad they stopped, even tho' it was just for overnight. They wouldn't stay in the house so but elected to slept in their camper parked in front of the garage. Super nice people. Come back anytime Gary & Joyce, the door is always open and the coffee pot is always on.

I did the plexiglass add to the lower 1/2 of my door. Dog wants to run thru the screen! That, and going camping next weekend with the grand daughter! Found a piece that just fits in the slots on the inside of the screen, added a dab of clear silicone to keep it from rattling.

Good news is once I get the second a/c mounted, it will clear the door header by a few inches.

It wasn't today.

Got home from a weeklong trip to NC on Friday at 6:48 pm. Got the TT washed and put to bed by 9:00 pm. Saturday had tornado warnings around and lots of wind and rain. Again today. Glad I sucked it up and got it done. It would have killed me to have a TT in the driveway get damaged by the weather and have an empty building sitting there.

The 1st pic is of somebody fixing a tail light on a TT in a WM parking lot in Murphy, NC. Looks like he needs more than a tail light.

2nd pic is our site at Persimmon Creek CG near Murphy, NC.

Boy it's nice to be able to post pics again!
