Everyone is welcome here! Lots of us have fifth wheels, but there are also travel trailers, hybrids, and pop-ups.

Welcome and congrats!

For me, nothing- filled my Berkey water filter, locked it up, and am going to play at Magic Kingdom all day!

Installed the Progressive 50A EMS. Kept all the smoke inside!

Still need to determine where I want the remote readout, but I'm in no hurry.

I greased the axles today with Lucas synthetic. The factory grease looked like black mud. The Lucas grease is Greene so it is easy to see when the old stuff if flushed out. I go on the next trip in 2 weeks so once back from that I will put a few more oz in each axle to make sure we officially got 100 coverage.

Preparing for our first trip of the year - a long one from Indy to Disney. On the to do list:
1. Seal a problem area on the front cap. It looks like I took a hit from some road debris on our last trip home in the fall. Small dent near the trim, creating a slight gap btwn the fiberglass and trim. Should be easy to fill and seal up. BTW, stored inside, so no damage from waiting to repair:beer:
2. Check one tire on curb side. I don't think I've run it on low air pressure, but the sidewalls have that look to them. Will probably replace just to be safe, or at least swap that one out w the spare.
3. Install oxygenics shower head I bought last fall.

I'm not clear exactly where you're talking about, but I guess this is where the vent pipe goes up through the roof, and you're referring to the in-roof ducting ?
Did either of you do sealing from inside the roof-space, using foam-filler etc ?
Any clarification would be greatly appreciated, since I'm wanting to improve the A/C effectiveness any way I can for our summer road-trip.
Thanks in advance
You are correct about the vent pipe rising up and actually through the in ceiling duct cut outs.

When I removed the vent pipe covers I noticed the problem. Before installing the new covers I used expansion foam to seal around the pipe at the bottom of the duct where it comes through and after it set sealed around the top just underneath the vent cover too. After it cured I trimmed away the excess, added Dicor and installed the vent covers.

I hope this clarifies the work I did?

This weekend: New camper prep! Six cans of undercoating and three cans of paint for the underside. Added a battery master switch and a second battery. Made a partition for the under bed storage. Glue and screw a bunch of loose trim or panels. Man I'm beat......

I waxed and took all the oxidation off my fiberglass. I also built a dump station holder.

Cut a 12' 2x10 down for ramps. One 5-footer based on my tire placement, and one 7'.


No, wait, my truck bed is only 6'. And the TT's rear rack is 70".


So one 5' and one 70"


Then I stapled some poly rope up inside the front storage to hold fishing poles. (pix in other thread).


We're taking her out for the first time Thur and Fri nights!! Site was already booked for Sat.

Tackled the vinyl problem listed in this thread.

LINK

Used latex paint I got Lowes to color match the original vinyl coating.

Hand peeled the loose vinyl. Some came right off, some took a little work and some couldn't be removed without causing severe wood damage.

Exposed all the wood to be painted.

Taped off everything I didn't want paint on and painted the first coat. Four hours later I sanded it. Used wood filler to fill where the vinyl pulled off too much wood. Repeated the paint/sanding one more time. Let sit overnight and painted final coat.

Doing the same to the entertainment center next.
