This was keystone. Yes they got me in and out in a week. But they did not order the awning arm ahead of time.

What did you do to your camper today?

God love Keystone RV in Greencastle, PA and Scott the service dept supervisor!


Perhaps you can post this on rvservicereviews.com. It is nice to know where one can get good service when away from home, or worth several hours of driving to get the job done promptly and correctly.

Took a good look at our little trailer today. Told her to get ready the desert season is about ready to start. Thinking about trading up but, she will do for now. Just grateful to have something so as to get out there.

Replaced 23 square knobs on the cabinets. The square ones looked nice but would smash fingers when opening. Round knobs much better.

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.

I waited like 2 months for a backordered left rear axle for my charger. Less than a week later, I'm waiting for the right rear axle (same part number axle).

Changed Drivers side rear light Switch SCARE LIGHT!

After leaving the light on over night a few times, I decided to change out the switch on the Convenience panel to an illuminated. Won't happen again.

Here is what i did for mine. I was going to put it on a motion sensor, but decided I didn’t want to fry my eyes when coming back in the dark. I do have a motion sensor/timer with short strip lights under the steps, tho.

Delinx Mini DC 12V Programmable Timer Relay Delay Module 24 Programs Infinite Cycle on/off Switch 0.01Sec to 999Min Adjustable
I wired it thru a photocell ( .50 amazon, raw cells) to only come on in the dark if i forget to turn it off.

Amazon, 12 bucks. By turning off your switch, then back on, restarts whatever timing cycle you set it to.

I have a very good rapport with the service department at Keystone and I think that's very important in getting things done. While they have worked on 2 of my TT's, I have no idea what their policy is for people needing service "right now" and would not want to go out on a limb and say they would work on a unit in a hurry. I live 65-70 miles away from Keystone, so everything has been set up usually a week or more ahead of time.
I'll post something as you requested, but it will only be about my experiences.

Gave her a full wash and detail. Soaked the awning in bleach and hosed down, looks new again. Jacked each wheel and checked bearings, greased suspension and started loading up for trip to wonderful fort wilderness early Saturday morning.

Brought it home from camping.
Parked it in a new spot beside the garage. Drilled a hole through the garage siding for shorter electrical access. Set two premade concrete pads for the wheels. One side actually needed two for side to side level. Slight uphill pull required a lot of finagling with blocking and the tongue jack to get the front low enough, more blocks than usual on the rear stabilizers, of course. We hope to camp more this year but this will likely be the TT's winter spot.
How comes it seems to take twice the effort to unload after camping than loading?
Next, I get to cut THREE holes in my camper. Black tank flush, AM/FM radio antenna, and seperate 15/20 amp input for a seperate supplied AC outlet (part of my power management plan at campgrounds). Speaking of flush, I used a hose to the toilet valve for the first time when I did my final tank dump before leaving the full hookup camp site. Used a clear sewer extension piece and my wife monitoring the hose was stunned at the amount of the extra stuff cleaned out.

Washed the roof, then washed the camper, then covered or for a couple months. Had to cancel our 10 day trip to Arkansas as I'm now headed to our plant in south texas for 6 weeks. Of well. Got to pay the bills.

Busy weekend... Had to remove the Dexter Ezflex equalizers I had installed at Goshen, wrong size for my trailer. Installed Morryde CRE3000 equalizers in the side yard / parking space for the rig. Four bottle jacks and about 3 hours of my day done!

Today I sealed around the AC units. Man I love FR but they did a piss poor job of sealing the units. I could stick my hand through the return / cold air exit partition. I also sealed all the holes into the roof area so I am no longer cooling the roof. The rear AC never really seemed to put much air out. Turns out the exit ducts were blocked by the extra roof material from the cut out... Now I have air flow!!

Where did you get access? I assume you opened the ac cowling on the roof.

No this was all inside. Removed the inner roof grill and started filling holes.

Iíve been fighting black ants for a few days. The are all under the water heater in the under bed storage area and donít see them anywhere else. I found only one spot where they possibly got in (where gas line comes up trough the floor from the underside of the camper). I sealed with silicon inside and out, put traps down, some borax, and continue cleaning that area and vacuumed at least 100. As of yesterday, I havenít seen any.
