I just added the Camco 43671 Self-Stor Step to our steps. So far they are amazing.

Looking for thoughts from you especially those who are seasonal campers . . . we do not pull our trailer nor do we move it from it's spot. Should we be doing anything about our tires, which are parked on wood planks. Thanks

Do you ever plan to move it?
If not, it doesn't really matter as tire replacement will be dependant on age.
Covering is about the only thing you can do. If they help hold the weight of your rig, (not on blocks) then maintaining air pressure should be considered.

Thanks for reminding me, I have to do the same and then check all the lines and fittings, for wear and leaks.

Finally finished up from the dealership for swaps and PDI checklist items.

The biggest things were...

They installed my EMS from the old rig into this one.

Fixed the generator - first it was no fuel as the tanks are mislabeled and then it got a new carburetor. We ran it for a while running the air conditioner and fridge.

Fixed a water leak with the washer/dryer drain - the p-trap was broken from the factory.

The awning rail and/or roof gutter appears to have never been sealed/caulked. I didnít get a clear explanation on that one.

And tightened up a couple of connections for the hydraulic system.

We didnít get to the campground until 8:40 and then were set loose to find a campsite in the pitch dark.

They still have to order and send us a couple of items that were missing. But for now, we are overall satisfied with the end result. Just didnít want the aggravation of having a lot of broken promises/false expectations.

I got it from storage filled the tires, removed the water filter, dewinterized, tightened the loose stairs, cleaned the awning, and am currently sanitizing the water system. I plan to install some led lighting on the bottom tomorrow and flush the water system. Putting air vent covers on today as well. Ready for the season to begin!

Ordered a 7 1/2' slideout topper today. Couldn't beat the price.
I got the Lippert Solera in black with black hardware to match the rest of the camper for $215. The big thing was shipping was free. When I looked last year shipping was over $100

When we bought the camper RV Wholesalers wanted something like $450 so this is a lot cheaper!
