I kept my trailer from pushing us through intersections.

Replaced the rear brakes on my truck. I know the trailer brakes should stop itself, but I feel better without these on my truck anymore.

They actually work great for 85,000 miles. It's this last 2 or 300 that I noticed anything and I just put 400 miles towing on it last weekend.

Either way, it's ready for the 800 mile tow to the Gulf coast in a few weeks.

I put a "6-compartment canvas hanging sweater bag" from the "Container Store" http://www.containerstore.com/s/closet/hanging-bags/6-compartment-canvas-hanging-sweater-bag/12d?productId=10005136
into the wardrobe cabinet of my 2016 ROO 21SS! It is a perfect fit, just hang it on the hanger rod!

That is why I install Disc brake on my 36' toy hauler, so I don't have that problem.

Yes it can. Have cancelled two trips already this spring due to weather. 😞

I installed a push bar on the screen door and a giant level on the pin box while my wife cried every time the drill bit touched her baby

What did I do?

What did I do to my camper today? Darn near ruined the water heater Did the dewinterizing thing over the weekend, cleaning, restocking, etc. Or as I like to say....dubbing around. But....when I turned on the water heater to make sure it worked, the propane fired up....all seemed good. Until I turned on the faucet after a few moments. It was at that exact moment that I realized I didn't close the bypass and fill the tank. And I know better!

Got it filled, thankfully it seems not to have run long enough to damage it and both electric and propane are working fine.

Thanks, Evereddie! I was hoping this was a lead-in to the Cheap Heat system. (Wishful thinking on my part!)

I'm 99% sold on it. Though, with installation- there's nothing "cheap" about it.

Did a haphazard wash job on the 5er. Didn't wash the roof, so will no doubt have more black streaks. I did get up on the roof and cleaned the gutters of pine needles. Found out that Awesome will not remove black streaks but Liquid Performance Black Streak Remover sure will. Just spray it on and wipe it or brush it and the streaks are gone.

WD40 is great for black streak removal too
