So far it seems like a lot of RV for the money, I only got it home and leveled up before I was called to go back to work... I'll sleep in her tonight, and play tomorrow.
I was a little worried about my 5.4 gasser having enough power, but as long as I'm not in a hurry it isn't too bad.:nansp lit:

Have you had the weight police check it out first, I'd hate to see in trouble with all those EXPERTS.

Installed my new reverse lights. Got tired of not being able to see very well backing in after arriving to the campground late.Click image for larger version

They are nice and reasonably priced even though you get auto leveling, will wait and see how the product line does, and I may buy one used down the road, we liked their decor and layouts also the price as most fifth wheels with these options are over the $35,000 mark

The auto leveling is a pretty nice feature... Just touch the touch screen and it's level. It even remembers how high it needs to be too hook up/disconnect

I replaced the batteries and o-rings on my flow through sensors and programmed the new color monitor.

I think this is worse than the “stinky slinky” degreasing the Weight Distribution Hitch. I was having an issue where one of them would fall out when pulling out of the driveway. I thought is was due to turning to sharp since i have to navigate tree for tail end of camper and neighbor car in front parked in yard straight across from my drive then my mailbox on the right which is the way i must go since col-de-sac to the left

I like WD40 to loosen up the old grease to clean it off before using fresh. Does a really good job.

Yesterday, I got it all winterized, everything put away in the shed. So she has been washed, waxed roof resealed and now ready for the winter. It was so hard packing her away for winter when it was 72 degrees outside...

Turned on the return air fan and set furnace to 40. It's supposed to drop a hair below freezing tomorrow morning.

Well, we visited ours on Sat. to check the tire sidewalls for pressure ratings in order to properly set our new TST 507 TPMS. A couple weeks ago we had a slide topper installed. Now we are waiting for our dealer service appt. for a number of minor warranty issues.

Dropped her off for warranty service yesterday. Might not see her for a couple weeks. It looks so empty at home with her missing from her spot.
