I hear ya Tim, maybe we will see you at Normandy Farms this year or somewhere else. Winter can't get over soon enough, although I am in Florida right now and heading to the Frog rally in Tampa tomorrow.

NOT a happy day. After a REALLY easy drive avoiding Atlanta. Pulled into campground and the lady checking in ahead of us pointed at the trailer and the DW said "Oh my"....

Clorplast had peeled free from the front attachments and was folded back to the axles. So instead of checking in I pulled it off the rest of the way. Half of the nails (into metal, no wood) were loose. Only ones really secure were on the back. My thought is FR installers should have put a strip over the leading edge to keep the wind from getting in. Interestingly, there was one on the back, not the front. Eventually get it all free and pulled into out, rolled it up and secured the heat ducts with some electrical tape. Hopefully it is good enough for us to get down to our next stop...
Finally got to our site and got setup.

That is a nightmare that has never been considered by me. Wow! Glad that did not get bunched up in a spot where it could burn up traveling. Holy smokes man!

Had the exact thing happen to me with my old Timberidge TT. Spent a day under the trailer reattaching new panels. I suspect it was dealer caused as it happened after being in for warranty due wiring issues. They stated they had found wiring that had shorted on the frame...

I finished installing the new FW tank brace. On the front side of the FW tank the support angle iron was bowed about 2 inches downward and the cross tank bracket was not attached. I used unistrut with angle iron brackets welded to it to hold and support the original angle iron. The factory angle iron support had bent right were the cross tank brace attaches. I did have to remove the stabilizer to get access however the corpolast was already removed.

Pulled the air distribution box for the air conditioner and checked tightness of mounting bolts. When putting it back on, two of the #6 auxiliary screws had stripped out, so replaced them with stainless steel #8s.

With the exception that the unistrut is on its side, which is not as strong as it could be.

We had the same thing happen on a 2004 camper we had years ago. We have A 2507 S Mini lite on order and went on a factory tour. I saw they had a metal strip across the whole entire front so it won't catch the wind, I was happy to see that. must be they missed it on yours.
I will definitely be checking it out on our inspection when we pick it up

Not today, but in the last couple of days.

I extended the galley grey tank dump valve. From under the middle of the slide to closer to the wheels. That way I have access to both dump valves between the slides, without running them in.





Then turned the tongue jack head 90* to clear the tailgate when down and still hooked up to the RV.

I am going to steal your galley valve move idea. Hate having to crawl under the slide.

How did you turn the tongue jack? I need to do the same thing since my Ram's tailgate sticks out on top with the little spoiler thing and sometimes hits. I took a quick look last season, but it didn't look like the jack could turn on the shaft.
