Called Maxxair to get the new Handle to open and close our Roof Vent broke on our last trip, they sent part under 2 year warranty, now just to climb back up the Roo and swap the mechanism. Silly little metal shaft sheared off this metal housing and we could not close our vent but I have a vent cover anyway

I got the ground wire recall done yesterday, bought 6 new ST225 /R75-15LR E tires for my 305WP Wolf Pack 5er toy hauler today $780 Les Schwab. They had the best warranty, of all of the others, a little more money but I think it is worth it. Then drove a 100mi on my little trip, headed to Turner Montana. Never heard of it, don't feel bad most people in Montana have not either.

The propane alarm went off at 2am. Turned off tanks, aired out rv, back in bed in time to get up.
This morning went over every hose and fitting again. I noticed a white nylon plug on th front of regulator. It was loose. So far no more gas odor.

Easy to install!
Just wish they would give a couple more inches to work in there!!
Might be easier on a 30A, the 50 was tight!! Maybe it's just my fat fingers!

Volsfan,
Glad the alarm worked!
Made me wonder - does anyone have a method for testing if your propane alarm is functional?

Nice to see a good tire story ! Proper loading and care also played in your favour I bet as well.

My wife seems to test ours once a year by accidentally leaving an unlit stove burner on.

Yea, sounds like that'd work. . . Sometimes I just need the obvious pointed out!
Now, does anyone actually test it (on purpose)?

They do have a safer gas to test with, just can't remember the name. Has been about 10 years since last used it.

I bought a battery powered detector when my co detector appeared to be malfunctioning and going off for no apparent reason. The battery powered one didn't never went off, so I knew the other was bad.

Got down and sat in floor to look at propane detector. There is a test/mute button on it. Took it off and mfg date is on back. No mention of expiration date.

Just got back from Mousetail Landing State Park near Linden, TN. A beautiful park, with 20+% slope section of road. Put the F350 to a real workout. Great place for smaller units. Very scenic.

You are correct. Some are less than 5 years. Here's a link for FAQ, your answer is at the bottom of this page.

Finally Finished

Finished installing a wireless rear view camera. A couple of little twists.. Hard wired the transmitter to the hitch area for better reception. Also made the camera mobile so I can use it as a rear security camera while inside the trailer.
Not pretty, but works.

I have a battery powered CO detector in the bedroom. The other one running on the house battery has always worked fine on this trailer.

Installed Velcro straps to dinette frame to hold the fishing rods. I also started putting screen on the water heater door and on the fridge vents to keep the flying stingy things out from attempting to build new homes. No pictures of that, yet.
