One big box is better than 8 little ones.

Now, I'm not really envisioning it taking this long, because the only part they need to order is a new folding dinette chair. I'm sure the leaky window can be fixed and the slide seals replaced without having too much trouble.

Regardless of it's status, I'll be picking it up mid September as we'll be heading out on the FROG rally to the Grand Canyon around 9/22. Just hoping they do something to it before then
Dealer called me last night and said the trailer was ready. Holy smokes, I was totally surprised. No issues with anything being covered by warranty and everything done in 4 days (instead of 4 months like they warned). Only item still to resolve is the broken dinette chair. However, it's on order and all I have to do is go pick it up when it comes in. Excellent service from Funtown RV....

My 3 hole goal fail.
The flush sprayer will not fit on any side of my black tank because it is completely surrounded by the TT frame.
The extra power inlet I planned to add for extra 20 amp input has no electrical guts. Made for a Minn Kota plug on their chargers. The plug just slides in and gets clamped, useless for me without a matching plug.
Last, auto AM/FM antenna. Partial fail. I tested it, worked clearer than the TV antenna setup. Drilled first hole too close to a stud. Drilled second hole that would cover the first hole with the gasket. RTVed everything of course. Hooked it all up, lost a nut and split washing in the wall, but found replacements and finished install. Used a small 1" hole saw to cut two adjacent holes vice a much larger one. Minimal signal. Gave it an overnight for RTV to cure and let my frustration rest. Took it apart today, soldered the main lead vice the push touch fit wire to metal, cleaned the RTV off the mounting screw that mates the lead to the antenna, put some solder on the screw to base interface. Reassembled everything got a good signal from a semi-local station but the further away one I tried did not work well with the new antenna but the TV antenna pulled it in adaquately I'm hoping that was due to antenna heights. That station was on the other side of the garage the TT is parked beside. The semi-local station is opposite the distant one, although on the side opposite where I mounted the new antenna.
Side issue on the radio antenna. If I can get the new radio antenna to work at least as well as the Television antenna, I can disconnect that connection near the television antenna booster to gain at least 3 db of TV signal. Every connection is a 3db loss is the basic television thumb rule.

What did you do to your camper today?

We just finished our maiden voyage with our Sanibel 3601. Did 1800 miles up and back to Bar Harbor Arcadia National Park. 5er performed flawlessly. The only issue we had was with road construction had a bump (back to back steel plates) on a curve. I donít know how high the couch flew but it was not in itís proper location when I opened the camper at the next rear area. OMG. Thanks to everyone on this forum for all the advice.

It sure is fun finding items not in their proper place when you stop or get home. Most of our stuff ends up on the floor since it slipped our mind to put it away before leaving allot of times slide doors not secured and I wonder how many times did it slide and bang against the wall.

The joys of camping

Went to install the hot water heater bypass I got in from Amazon. Checked outside access, not there for connections. Looked inside under the bed, removing a couple panels, ALREADY HAVE A BYPASS INSTALLED! Pleasant surprise. Now I have to return another item to Amazon!
Bought 4 gallons of RV antifreeze from WallyWorld, only $2.58 a gallon. Preparing for winterization but hoping to go camping a few more times this year.

Yep, youíre all set. We donít winterize until after the Canadian Thanksgiving, so still got like 6 weeks to go.

Oh and with my Flagstaff, once I bypassed the onboard water filter, it now only took me a single gallon of antifreeze to winterize my lines and at most another 1/2 for the P-traps.

Installed drawers under the bed for DW.
Installed straps, suspenders, to hold the couch cover.
Helped DW make the bed and put elastic sheet keeps on.
Swapped out our heavy folding table (22lbs) for a light weight aluminum one (11lbs).
Did some measuring and decided NOT to do 2 mods I had in mind.
Started getting stuff together for our trip to Missouri next week
