I stayed with C. Considered Ds but had good luck with the Cs that came with the pup so figured I would stay there for now.

I felt that the water pump took too long to cut off after running water, several seconds at least. I could tell that there was air trapped somewhere I just couldn't find it.

So today, I found it. It suddenly hit me that it has clothes washer connections in the bedroom closet, I went and checked them, the lines were full of air. Purged them out, now the pump runs a couple of seconds and shuts off.

Learn something every day!

Gals- considering your climate compared to mine, using c's are an excellent choice. I just didn't want to take a chance during a 110 degree summer day having an issue with it. As soon as I wear down these sneakers on our new one, I'm going up to d's

I started to revive the trailer today as we leave for Southern California next week for Nascar on the 23rd at Auto Club Speedway. Camping at the track this year.

After a blowout at less than 5,000 miles and discovering problems with two of the other four tires we replaced all with D range and had them balanced. Apparently factory tires are never balanced and this results in many problems. We have always routinely checked our tire pressure. This year we are adding a tire pressure monitoring system.

Went out first thing this morning and turned off the ceramic heater.

NO freezing temps for at least the next ten days! Daytime highs in the 60s and 70's, night time averages in the 40s to 50s.

I'm beginning to believe spring WILL happen this year!

Ummm where's your RV that you're expecting sub freezing temps?

Here in LA things are looking GREAT for the next 10 days.

Just fixed the living room sofa, was sagging a little in the middle sitting on it for a couple of hours (movie time) Problem solved with a visit to home depot and $30 dolars on wood! DW loved it. Also installed the screen mesh with magnets in the door and dw tossed it in the trash!

Dreaming of going to the trailer and hooking her up and leaving for awhile. But alas with
18 - 24 inches of snow on the ground that will not happen. Dreamed that we installed the new outside LED lights, dreamed that we attached the new pullout shelves in the pantry. Just dreaming my life away for a few more weeks.

Pic? I was thinking about putting in one of the curved shower rods, but I think the bathroom is just too small.

Thought about putting the slides back in after doing some early prep work this week. I get to pull the Sabre on Tuesday, all the way to the service shoo for warranty work....maybe in a couple more weeks I can use it

I looked at it, wishing the snow would melt all around it and the ground to be a bit more stable (even a freeze again), and move it out of the back corner so I can start getting her ready for camping in a month.

I turned the propane & 110v off on the water heater, shut the water pump off, drained the water heater, bead blasted the anode, hooked up the Dish and got 8 sets of awning poles complete waiting on hardware. Only 1224 more holes to drill, chamfer & de-burr to finish the 25 sets. Now I know why D&D is shutting the doors.
