Great all are ok. Stuff, while an aggravating loss, can be replaced.

People in & around Atmore, AL have been so gracious & helpful. But we’ll be glad to be headed back to Texas too.

Y’all be super careful out there!

Just confirmed we have insurance for full replacement cost of trailer & contents for first 5 years. Our 4-tired baby was 14 months old, and our dealer has both a 2018 & 2019 on the lot with a Labor Day sale!
Looking better than yesterday!

Thanks everybody!

Flosmith, so glad all okay. My husband is a retired Alabama state trooper Major and our son is a trooper Captain now though he’s currently the commandant of the Academy and not on the road anymore. They both have seen and worked lots of fatal wrecks on our roads.

Your guardian angels were surely looking out for you and your family. Stay safe.

Picked up the trailer from the repair shop. It's all fixed in less time and for much less than I expected. If you ever need RV repairs in Granbury, TX rodney Leach of Mobile RV Service is where to go.

Planned a trip to Missouri in September

Didn't do much. I did a quick walk-around inspection as we have an expected 10 days of rain ahead of us. I discovered we have in inhabitant roosting under the slide out topper. I will let him/her be for the time being. In a few days if it hasn't moved on I will slip a pool noodle into the area to prevent habitationClick image for larger version

I’m sure many of you have an awning that leak water thought the stitch holes above your door? Well, I do, and it was very annoying.

I’ve tried a few things in the past to seal these holes and nothing has worked longer then one rain storm.

While walking through a store 6 months ago I saw that On Seen on TV - Flex Seal (clear) and figured I would give it a try. Well it works, and it’s been 6 months.

Can anybody tell me if a TST507 monitor can be charged using an AC charger such as an iPhone charger plug

The manual says anything from 5v to 30v DC of input voltage is acceptable for the color monitor. An Apple charger should work fine. You'll need the cable that fits the monitor (to plug into the charger cube) as I dont believe the Apple cable will fit the monitor.

iPhone or Droid charging brick and droid cable. Should have been a cable with the TST. When charging the monitor is always on.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.
