When I had my older TT I was single and setup in and out myself, now anything inside is a mister to any Male, this works well for us especially that she does not ever want to deal with Grey/Black Tanks.

It initially came up too cold after the first night. Fridge section at 30 degrees. It took a full 4 days of camping to zero in on the correct temp. It is very sensitive and you have to move it very little and wait 4 hours. Finally got it. It reaches a high of 36 degrees and a low of 33 degrees. A worthy mod since I couldn't regulate the old method much at all.

I dewinterized and sanitized the FW system. Then I checked the heat, heat pump, AC, fridge on gas and electric and water heater on gas an electric. All working good.

Well... swivel wheel is going up on Craigslist. Brought it home behind the camper today after having the hitch installed, and there were a few things I didn't like.

The extra swing out will make getting into my driveway (and other tight areas) an issue at times.

The front to back pivot may cause some clearance issues with my golf cart and the ladder.



Glad I had a center hitch added at the same time. I'll just pull the golf cart on the small trailer (which we have used behind the truck but is just a little to small for the golf cart). If / when the swivel wheels sales we will add an aluminum trailer to the mix and use that.


The swivel wheel is most likely fine, as I see several of them at Ocean Lakes, but I just wasn't a fan after seeing it "move" behind the camper. I acquired it in a golf cart deal, so not out much money though.

Finally emptied the LP gas tank after nearly 2 years of use. Flipped over to the second tank and heard hissing. Oh oh. Soapy water at the joints doesn't reveal any bubbles. Didn't squirt down the hoses, instead just swapped the tanks as the other line doesn't leak, and needed to finish cooking breakfast. I'll check the secondary hoses from the tank to the regulator another day.

I had that on my 2013 Crusader, decided to replace the regulator and hose line because it was leaking just never found out where it was coming from. Might want to consider that, better safe then sorry.

I got the Furion Wireless Observation camera installed after the baseball games today. I also have my plan for the trailer light plug on the back of the camper and for the Winegard Travel'er install this week.

I tow my 05 G22 Yamaha on a Tractor Supply 5x10 steel trailer (they now offer aluminum) and it's perfect size even with the foot rest for the back seat kit. I put the front tires right up against the front rail tight and ratchet strap over each tire. From Jersey to all around Florida a few times and never a problem. Camera on the back of the 5er gives assurance.

Tell me about it. But where I live close to everything including highways and bridges to get away fast. Don't even talk about the exit tax if you want to leave!
