According to Chevy manual, 2 years, when DIC says so or 22500 miles. Whatever is first. Year old but at 20900 miles with a 3000 mile trip coming up and 70% left on the DIC.

Swapped out all the straight zerk fittings on the wet bolts for 90° zerks. No adapter needed now. Tractor Supply had 10 packs and are of a good quality.

New Hankook Dynacraft tires on the f150 for my upcoming trip to myrtle beach in less than 2 weeks. Put new tires on the trailer (Goodyear Marathons) last year for our first trip to myrtle beach.

Began to attach the Dream Dinette mechanism to my camper table.

1. Had to remove the existing fold down legs.
2. Attached the mechanism to the plywood that the previous legs were on.
The slide was too long for the plywood so I had to remove the mechanism.
3. Removed the plywood and reattached it long ways to the table.
4. Reattached the mechanism and now the slide fits perfectly on the plywood.

Next I will be prepping the wall of my dinette by adding a wainscotted panel to reinforce it.

After that I'll attach the table.

Today I also installed an awning cradle. The 19' tube had a little sway back to it until now. It should stop any bouncing on these rough roads on the east coast.

Pulled it outside of the garage and washed the roof and sides. Didn't get it done after the beach as I was waiting on the driveway to be done. Washed the beach off just in time to go to the outer banks in about 3 weeks.

Will spend the evenings this week "waxing" it with the 303 quick wax formula, and giving the roof a good 303 treatment.

Now.... I'm jumping off the diving board. It's warm here in NC!

Here's the one I used. It came with a backing plate so there's no chance of it failing. It automatically flips back and catches the tube to support it. Works well. Also available in black.

Pics attached I pulled from a search.

Looking into it, a friend in VT has that unit too loves it, just have to make sure it will fit in the Ford Factory Pucks on my 2016 F350

Be careful not to mount backwards. You'll be rocking the wrong way. Lol.
Good to see you in Mayberry.

Gives me an idea, if mounted backwards, we'd have a foot rest. Will see if it works. Thanks.

Added a Sani-tube Super Slider that telescopes from 53-100". on the brackets where the power stabilizer jacks would have been mounted. It's meant for sewer hoses. By extending the brackets by 3" per sidewith a steel plate, I can carry 5 fishing rods up to 6.5 '( or stuff the sewer hoses in it) and the tube is lockable at each end. There is enough room left on the brackets to mount a second tube set-up. Wasn't all that expensive when you consider the plastic fence post or pvc installs that have been done and all the extra pieces, caps, and hardware you have to come up with to complete the job

Replaced the Electric element on my Water Heater that now will make it a Hot Water storage tank to store water heated by LP gas or 120 V electric element.

Packing for a midweek trip with HOA RV Club.

Taking the Surveyor to the dealer tomorrow morning to replace the defective/damaged couch, replace a missing gutter dripper, check to see why the recliners are so hard to put down and the damage the recliners did to the blinds while trying to put the foot rests down. I am going to wait at the dealership for them to do the work, the camper is not going into "RV jail"


I have fixed the battery cables, replaced a bad inverter, fixed drain leaks, fixed bad component cables for the DVD/TV and fixed a loose DVD player all because I don't want the dealer to keep the unit during camping season, which right now runs through Thanksgiving.

Took our new rig out for the first time last weekend at Bayou Segnette State park near New Orleans. Went very well. With a few hundred miles on the combo, I've gotten the hitch set properly and don't think I need bags at the moment. Really rides very smoothly.

Finding a few things to farkle on the TT, (First thing is to convert the outdoor grill to a two burner stove top).

I think we did well enough that we didn't provide too much entertainment for the more experienced campers.

Somewhat belated, but a little over a week ago I put Timbren shock assists on the F250 before our big roadtrip, after a recommendation from another forum member.
Not sure if they help the ride much, since driving places we've never been before so i don't have any reference for a fair comparison, but they do help reduce the rear end sag.
