I brought the rest of the staples from the house and we stocked the pantry and
Bathroom
I also installed some struts on the upper doors in the kitchen dining area
Shy of dewinterizing fridge stuff filling propane and putting the smoker in the camper she is ready to head out Friday

Wine rack

Installed a wine rack putting the finishing touches so the wine can’t fall out.

Nice to keep the wine bottles from falling out. Have you added any provisions to keep the wine drinkers from falling over after they've drunk all the wine.😉😉

Covered it back up made two good trips this spring already, but we’re pretty tied up until school lets out at the end of May. Then we’re hitting it hard all summer and fall!!

If anyone is interested, Steel Rubber Products just started an RV web site for all kinds of seals for an RV. Got their catalog a while back and its pretty good. They started out making rubber seals for classic cars. Good quality. No I dontbwork for them or anyone!

Sorry for late reply. We are staying at Grand Canyon Camper Village with full hook ups for 5 nights was just over $300. Expensive but being 1 mile from the canyon is cool.

I do have 4x4 and it was in low range locked all 4 spinning on the snow and ice

We live in wi so 2 4x4 and an awd car

I even had double 4x4 as we tried pulling the camper and suburban out with our nitro

But after the wife went to work I went out and worked on it for about an hour and she is now out and in the driveway. If I had waited till tomorrow snow came I wouldn’t have been able to get her out

Worked on my control panel

Our almost brand new RV (just bought it in January) has a broken on/off button on the builtin tablet controller. Tried working with the dealer and they said, I had to bring the entire RV in to have it looked at. Oh, and they couldn't see it till June. Tried calling Lippert to get a new one and they said I had to go through the dealer. So today, I got a hold of Forest River customer service and a very nice young lady helped me out. She said that if I was comfortable replacing it myself, she would express ship me a new controller. Since I already had the unit out of the cabinet, I assured her I was and voilia, a new controller is on it's way.

Cool, pictures!

Ice and snow are the worst. I could say, “We got 5 inches of rain in the last week” but still could not top ice AND snow.

Congratulations, perseverance has its rewards.

Chalk one up for Forest River! Glad to hear they came through for you when your dealer didn't.

I don't live far from Clinton and get the rain right after you guys do. I don't mind rain in general but when it's just above the freezing point it's no fun. I prefer snow then. At least I can wear a dry coat to stay warm.

I'm getting out of town next week with the truck and trailer. May not be back until June. If it's still raining I'm leaving again. Where too? Depends on where the dart lands on my map.

Here we go again. We've been enjoying setting the TT up since coming home with it on Friday. Came home today, cleaned off the slide and packed her up.

Even though I saw the glow-ball quite a bit today, still waiting for all this glow-ball warming I keep hearing about.

<-- Becoming my favorite.

We are looking at 5 to 8 depends upon who’s predictions you look at. I am sick of Mother Nature the camper is actually in the driveway and I will be heading out camping Friday after the wife gets home. Just hoping the campground has water turned on . I’ll dewinterize and fill the water tank Friday and bring the compressor with to blow the lines out
