Brought it home on Saturday and then proceeded to load everything in it until I was ready to drop.

I know I didn't have to do it all in a weekend, but that is me.

Had to make our first repair already. I was closing a blind in the dinette and it came off the wall. We got it put back quickly even though we had to replace the anchor in the wall.

Have plans to do some mods also.. DH doesn't like me.

Finally got the last one re-polished. If this re-polish lasts as long as the 1st (4 yrs) that will finish me off. We'll be thru camping for sure.

Powder coat was not an option, TOWTA wanted polished poles. Guess what? TOWTA got her polished poles.

Coat them with clear coat? If they start to wear off, a quick light scuff with a scotch pad and recoat, that may work? :-)

I have air bags in my f250 ,when I get home from work today I will send you some pic of my set up. I'm sure if you have on board air supply or separate feed,but I tee the line so I have one access point instead of 2.

Sorry about this post I try to reply to someone post from earlier and mess it up. Tried deleting but haven't figured that out.

Got the inner poles polished and re-installed yesterday and having the driveway (OCW "Bob" & Glenn's camping sites) pressure washed today. Man says it's the biggest one he's ever done. Just under 4,000 sq. ft. 28' x 140' not counting the sidewalk. Looking pretty good. First time in 15 yrs it's been cleaned. TOWTA is already a much happier camper. She's be griping about it for over a year.

Man has been at it constantly since 9:00 am and says another 2.5-3 hrs left. 3:10 pm now.

Man had to quit due to both of his circular washer heads blew up and were not repairable. Said he or the owner would be back Sat morning to finish. About 2-3 hrs left to do the 2 large sections right in front of the garage. TOWTA is very happy with the results. It looks like new concrete where it was cleaned.
