Just ordered a progressive industries 30amp permanent install EMS. $201 plus tax at Camping World, free shipping.
I've been looking at these since I bought my TT end of April, reading all the electrical horror stories and saves by EMS here. Finally pulled the trigger! Previous best price was $222 via Amazon.
I inspected my LP tank hold down brackets, look good to me. Forest River has a recall on them, single tank wolf pups.

I purchased the remaining needed box of vinyl floor tiles for an update the DW wants,
and installed the television mounting swivel bracket. Not to mention the full cleaning job
of the black tank, gray tank and holding tank (it was a sanitize). Getting her ready for
a couple weekends away from home by month's end.

I had to change a flat tire on my trailer yesterday before I left my campsite. I removed a nail and patched the tire. It's ready to be put back on.

Any ideas
This delamination is one reason I prefer the metal corrugated construction.

Careful.....that's treason for most.

That IS the reason I have a ...
Stick and tin

...an entry level trailer

One of those ugly metal sided, cheap outdated RVs.... assuming I am allowed to call it that.

We got our trailer from where we store it to the house to get ready for a short trip this weekend. We both have changed jobs so we have not had the vacation time to go much this year. We are excited for this weekend

Fiberglass can delaminate and scratch. Metal dents and scratches. Each has advantages and disadvantages. What is important is the you are happy with your choice!

There is another option, it's called Adzel, Coachmen uses it on all there units now. It will not delam, look at the ytube on it. FR will not use it being it cost 7 times per square foot more. Coachmen has there plant sign made of it, a piece of wall with insulation and no trim on the edges, it has Sat exposed for 5 years now and shows zip delam, from all weather in Indiana. There are better ways, even then hard sided.

Pretty sure the Coachmen units are part of Forest River.

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.

Keeping in mind, at least on my TT, that only the side walls are Azdel. The back wall is laminate as is the front cap. I've had a small delam on the back (wasn't sealed properly at the bottom) and stress cracks on the front which resulted in replacing the entire front cap on warranty. It seems to be a good option.

Coachmen is definitely part of Forest River. Maybe instead of cost issues, they're
confirming long range viability?

cleaned and treated the roof and gave it a good wash. Figured out the Samsung TV I bought can have bluetooth turned through the engineering menu. Now my Insignia soundbar can connect to my TV without wires. I have the early 2018 4092BFL that did not come with a soundbar. Glad now that I didn't as it sounds like it is setup with RCA connections.

Coachmen is indepently owned, all they did was to be put under the FR umbrella. Everyone works for Coachmen not FR. As far as the caps, both mine are full fiberglass, not saying it can't blister like boat hauls do, but very easily repaired.

Installed an Extend-a-Shower curtain rod. After reading reviews, was concerned that it would be long enough to make a difference on our 42Ē shower, but it works perfectly! Looking forward to showering without the curtain sticking to me and having elbow room!

Sorry it took so long. They are plastic stick on tiles from Lowe's Home Improvement. Cut with scissors.

I installed a new day/night pleated shade to replace the OEM shade which blew up.

Installed a new power inlet on the TT. This what happens when connections arenít tight combined with low campground voltage.
