Right now, the plan is for me to be at Soledad Canyon until the morning that they get the camper. If I can stay closer, that'd be ideal. I actually just emailed the service manager about boondocking in their parking lot the night prior.

- Fix my non-working stove fan
- Lube all slide out mechanisms
- Hopefully install JoyRider shocks
- Hopefully install an 12v outlets and 12v USB outlets into my tech cabinet area
- Hopefully fix my black tank flush (it doesn't let water into the black tank)

Looks like they'll have the camper the first few days of December while we enjoy Disneyland from a hotel (I really hate hotels).

I still need setup with an electrician to get some outlets and inverter installed. I also decided that I want to take out the crappy water-trap in the bathroom sink and replace it with a real p-trap; going to need a plumber or someone like it for that.

I have the same sticking handle and the fuse keeps blowing on my stove hood for the light and fan. I have a 2015.5 Roo 23IKSS

I never even thought of a fuse- but, it's only the fan for me. The light still works.

Washed it, well most of it anyway. Tomorrow I will scrub the roof and awning.

Prepped the TT for the last trip of the year. DW and I are looking forward for next week's annual Thanksgiving week camping trip with the daughter and grandkid at DeSoto State Park in northeast Alabama.
Then home to winterize her and put her to bed for the winter (The TT - NOT THE WIFE!). Wait a minute!!!

We've stayed at Soledad Canyon TT campground in the past, wasn't really impressed. With our drought it's probably not very green... a lot of dirt. We had issues with their 30 Amp service and it was very noisy. I actually like Redlands better.

Thanks for the heads up. Everything I've read has me with very low expectations. The price is right for me. Between it and TT Pio Pico, I'll be spending a month in southern California for "free".

Well I just gotten word my new to me truck F-250 2007 with 33,000 miles is on it's way and will be here by Thursday on a transport from California, Then take out my old hitch from 2004, with 133,000 miles on it and switch it. My new Reese Revolution has arrived at the service center (not Dealer) Reese sent me a free one for replacement after being 4 years old they stepped up. Also I had a front ram on the street side starting to pit again after only two weeks of them replacing the same one at the rally. I need to find out why that is the only one that keeps pitting. I looked under the 5er. The only thing I think it could be is acid from the battery splashing it. I will post pictures Tuesday next week of the work and inspection of the pin box area to see how it's holding up. I will not use a dealer they sent everything to the Service Center here in Ringgold Va. They build custom Rv's. What gets me besides my dealers terrible work and knowledge, they charge $90.00 per hour and these guy's who know how to build a trailer charges $70.00 per hour. Reese and LCI are paying to have both parts replaced, the hitch is on me.

Well I got my Butchs Bed Saver installed today. The cost was $79.00. I had to use 3 bits to drill out the 4 wholes, but it will catch the pin and keep the 5er off my rails. I can't do the tug test anymore being that the Hydraulic rams go up one at a time. When it catches it will still have 4"'s of clearance.

Glenn did the 10 year old Boy across the street install the Bed saver? Did you let him ride the New scooter yet? Did you pay him the New MW of 15.00$ per hr? Youroo!!

If you put your foot on the pad of the landing gear that goes up first (usually it's the driver side) you can hold it down so the other side can go up a little. Then you can do your "tug" test.

Enjoy that new to you truck. If you ever have any questions or concerns just give a yell. I love my 6.0. Almost 160,000 miles now. Maintenance and what to look for is key!

Turned on the refrigerator, water heater, replaced all the batteries in the TST Flow thru sensors, aired all 5 tires to 65#, washed the truck for the 1st time since we got back from FL, filled it with gas. Still have to check tire pressures on truck and check oil level. Then we'll probably leave either Thurs, Fri or for sure Sat. Got 580 miles to go and only 3-1/2 days to drive it.

Washed the awning.... I should have checked here on FRF before I spent hours scrubbing. Next time I will spray on the cleaner and roll the awning in and let it soak.
