One ram moves easier than the other, the seals and packing are just a bit more snug is all and isn't detrimental.

Hydraulics are just like electricity, going to find the path of least resistance.

Have a safe trip OldCoot and your DW. Many thanke for all the great advice you give on this forum.

Thanks, but some would disagree with you on the advice.
Getting ready to put the awning in, lock it for travel and hook up. Leave early tomorrow (well, sometime after sun light), 580+ miles and only 3+ days to make it.

All hooked up, brake tested, lights checked, TOWTA loading last minute items. Then just put the slides in and go. No doubt we'll forget something, always do which is why we have 2 or 3 of the same things when we get home.

Solved the slide out leaks, so got to give the tin-ominium a bath. It's all winterized but we are all ready for the last trip of the season...

Well, we got on the road at 9 and made it to Santee, SC before calling it quits. Hopefully we can contact BombDoc and April tonight and maybe have lunch with them tomorrow.

BTW Glenn, it was awfully quiet driving, OH CRAP, I got the dog and forgot TOWTA! Oh well, she can always just uncover her old junker and drive down. Sure was an enjoyable ride tho'.

Replaced the bedroom vent with a MaxxFan Deluxe on Friday. That Sure took longer than I hoped. That old dicor was a pita to remove.

Yesterday I replaced the generic revolution/sidewinder wedge with the specific one for my Reese Titan hitch.

Gonna be chillin out today, then getting ready for our trip to Savannah, GA for thanksgiving (Wed to Sun)

Made it to St. Augustine for the night. Just 138 more miles to Fawn Ridge in Davenport and only 1-1/2 days to make it. Will be a hard drive, but I think somehow we might make it. Hope TOWTA gets there before Thanksgiving. Can't believe I left with the dog and left TOWTA behind. Damn CRS is getting bad.
