Hmmm, an Ohio guy not supporting the locals - what's wrong with Goodyear???? Probably prefers French wine too!

Full disclosure, I have a few friends who work at GY...

The GY tires did not have as good of ratings as the LTX M/S2 's especially in the snow, deep snow and ice areas. I have had the GY tires and in my opinion they did not last as long ( two of the four had broken belts ).
Now about the wine... I don't drink, so no idea what is better. To be honest, I drink decaffeinated coffee too. LOL
However my Michelin's are made in the Untied States! That must count!

Closed the fridge slide and put clean linens back in it. Despite being near freezing holding out for one more weekend away.

Today I piped in a 12' propane extension hose with quick connect and shutoff valve to my new Olympian Wave 6 heater. I removed the stove and tapped into the propane using a 3/8 T, I did have to manufacture a longer copper gas line with 90* bend because of clearance behind the stove. Used gas tape at all fittings and leaked checked with no leaks. Put quick connect (male) on the heater and tested the operation it works great. I can place the Wave 6 almost anywhere in the Kitchen so should work and keep things warm. The hose exits just under the stove thru a black cable hatch and stows out of sight.

Drilled the holes, then put in the vertical bolts to secure the axle to the frame. Also tightened up the factory bolts. My axle had not moved like some that I have seen pictures of here, now it never will. While I was under the 2504, I loomed up all the brake wiring. There were some places that over time would have rubbed through and shorted out. Took out the flimsy lauan panel out of the street side rear storage compartment under the bunks. I am in prosesss of using my old headboard to make a more sturdy panel that also makes getting to the water valves less of a chore. Yesterday I finished the kitchen backsplash. Jay

I blew out all the water lines, drained the hot water tank, drained fresh water tank,opened all low point drains and pumped in the pink stuff. Then ran washing machine to make sure it is winterized. Just have to check ice maker to see if I have pink ice. Hurry up spring!

Did my first winterizing of the toy hauler. Mine didn't come with a winterizing port, so I add my own. Added a valve to shut off the flow from the fresh water tank, and a t with a flexible hose that I can use to put into the antifreeze container. Worked great.



I also mounted my winch to the garage floor so I can use it to pull my jet ski in. More about that here

Did you add a valve to shut off the hose to the antifreeze?

I didn't yet. I have a plug for the antifreeze hose when I'm not using it, but I may put a valve in to make my life easier.

the valve will ensure you don't suck air and not get the water pressure are wanting. good luck

Fished wires down thru the roof vent for the frig to power the new flag flood lights that will be on a dusk to dawn switch. Will finish the wiring when we get to Florida. Don't like the looks or amount of light the solar light puts out that is mounted on top of the pole.
