Took the cover off today, since I was unable to because of yesterday's​ gusty winds before the storm.

So to me it isn't necessarily sponsored by Forest River like the impression he was given. But still according to the website posted above with no deductible it works for some I suppose.

It says that you cannot perform your own maintenance. I still have nightmares from what the dealer tried to charge me for simple maintenance.

Yesterday, picked up the 5er from the shop. They replaced the living room air conditioner and washed the rig.

On the way home, went by a tire shop and had them pull one wheel so I could look at back. It was labeled 110PSI. I ordered a set of G614s to replace my Load Range E tires. The G614s were an option but I did not realize it until after our 5er was delivered.

Fired up the refrigerator and stocked it with Smuttynose IPA.

Replaced the two Tinnerman nuts that fasten the top to the stove. Note to self: Don't overtighten screws holding down stovetop.

Turned on the fridge! We are heading out tomorrow evening to use the trailer for the first time. We are all excited to test everything out for real.

Bought a Tempurpedic memory foam from Costco and put it on the bed! Stocked up with food and beer. My husband and sons headed out to the campground. The girls and I will join tomorrow after I get off work.

Brought "Jenny" home from storage. Hooray! Bought in February and visited a couple times since then to start etc.

Now to get her cleaned up stocked and make plans for our first trip in probably a couple weeks. Need to learn how to use everything.

Spit snow here in central Ohio last night so may not dewinterize until next weekend.
