For me, I installed a storage box onto my rear bumper.

The box is cheap and will store my sewer accouterments (campsite elbow, donut, wye, XXL ZipLoc bag for filling with water if I need weight for my sewer connection).

It's not much, but it'll free up some space from the basement.
Oh, and I bought new Zip Ties today. I got 24" black zip ties to replace the existing ones. The originals seem fine, but 15 months seems like a long time.

True. Not saying always, but one to try. I see a suggestion, I'll try and see if it works for me. If it does, good. That's how I come up with what I do to winterize. Stopped two problems I had.

What was wrong with your water pump and how did you fix it? I have the old one after replacing mine. Just 1 year old. The original only pumped water when it was in the mood. Motor would crank, but no water pumped.

Santa brought a Max-Amp RV cell phone booster. I cut out my groundplane today from galvanized flashing and now waiting for a little warm weather to bond it on the roof. http://maximumsignal.info/

I picked mine up from the dealer where it was getting some warranty work done. It's nice to have it back home again after a month and a half.

Got some tools I need for the water pressure tank project. Devoted the rest of the day to mountain biking in snow.

Pulled mine home from Ocean Lakes at Myrtle Beach. Washed it and the truck and tucked them away until February.

We could be selling it for a new one. The CFO has mentioned making some changes, so I believe we are gonna hit the RV show this weekend to look at some.

I'm in Midway NC (between Winston Salem and Lexington).

We won't buy there, but will check out some floor plans.

I had this happen last week while stepping down out of my TT. Ended up on my side on the asphalt. Nothing broken, but just plain lucky as I hit hard.
There was no indication of a crack, nick, air bubble or anything else, just SNAP! I'm not sure if I'm going to replace with another plastic bar or a ss tube that I know won't break. Just glad it didn't happen to my DW as she breaks easily.
Sorry about the sideways photos, but you get the picture

Checked to make sure it was still parked where we left it, in the snow next to the boat.

Is that the grab handle? Never saw one like that if it is that...
