Finished installing Moryde wet bolts on other side of TT. Only two hours for the second side. Here are some of the old plastic bushings after 6k miles. Click image for larger version

I have more than enough now. I expect to pick and choose which ones I run. Probably won't have to run all three at the same time unless it is upper 90s.

Nice to have options now.

Here is the finished product.


Well when not using as an RV I guess you can use for a walk in cooler. lol

Yep...mine looked like that too when I made the switch to wet bolts. You will be amazed with the noise difference

Got new state inspection sticker and new tires. Not the greatest tires out there but the last set kept me safe for 5 years. So why not try them again.

Same thing happen to me. Got Primetime to provide the Dexter wet bolt kit as warranty. I installed it. It is a shame that the RV industry thinks it is OK to only have 6000 mile life of a trailer or 5th wheel running gear!!:-(

Drained and treated the fresh water tank and replaced the water filter. Treated all the interior wood. Next week we'll wash and wax.

I like those rims, never ever heard of those tires but as long as you like them, that is a good thing

Got mine out of the barn, drained the red stuff, freshened the FW tank with white vinegar, got everything ready to go and waxed it. No place to go in particular but being retired, I may go anywhere anytime.

Once the tools are out and you're familiar it's great how the other side goes quicker.
Between the bronze bushings, the wet bolts, and the beefy 1/2" side plates these kits are a must on any trailer in my opinion. Every trailer I own from here on out will have them. Especially with the deal I found on Amazon.
Next I'd like to do shocks. That's going to be custom though.
Enjoy!

Had her here all weekend after being in storage since we bought in Feb.

Touched up couple nicks in the wood with the Minwax pencils - worked really well.

Since we have the cherry wood in the 3051S cleaned and gave the wood some moisture with Liquid Gold. Wood was pretty dry and absorbed most of it. Let that sit overnight and polished today - looking much better.

Treated all the leather. Bench seats in eating area, Jack Knife Sofa, Driver and Passenger seats, vertical window trim - have the tan leather ones. Leather came out real nice with the treatment - looking good again.

Steam cleaned the vinyl flooring.

Tried out the new PT30X that was delivered yesterday.

Cleaned out all drawers - wife put the non slip liners cut to fit in the ones she wanted.

Sat in the driveway for a while watching Office Space on the outdoor tv and dvd player.

Figured out the A / B / Both speaker switch.

Fixed the tip out hamper hinge - was missing screw to used for stop when opening.

Cleaned all the windows and glass.

Took her back to storage this afternoon....next weekend will be back for de-winterization and outside cleaning.

Cleaned the dirt off from the last trip. Put clean bedding & a few clean dishes back in the pantries so we'll be ready for the next trip. :-)

You have wood in your camper? Mine is all printed paper glued on some sort of composite material. I don't think there is a real piece of wood in mine. I'll say however, it all looks real.

Yep. Cabinets are solid in the 3051. At least 2014 they are. There is some composite for kick plates etc. drawers are solid as well.

Cedar lined closets on bedroom also. Love the layout and upgrades in the model.

Headboard I had to fill with the color stick gas laminate on top and few other places. Will probably replace with solid wood as needed.

On my 2801 Forester, 2016 model, the radio A switch is interior speakers, the B switch is exterior speakers and the C switch is for the subwoofer.
