Today, I uncovered it, washed it, reinstalled the batteries and spent an hour on the phone looking for new tires.

Erroneously posted this in the Forester section but since it’s applicable to all motorhomes I’m posting it here. Mods...pls delete the original post in the Forester section.

I installed a ReadyBrute towbar system a few weeks back but didn’t have time to finish the job. The RB has a built in braking system but there’s no way to tell if it’s working while driving down the road. The kit included an LED light that will come on if the brakes are correctly activated. Long piece of wire to run. The light installed easily between the side camera switches.

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.

Can one of you come up and wash/wax mine? I'm sure it needs it. I'll supply beer when you're done.

No but will give you time to pull over preventing possible damage.

I put the LCI Ground Control 3.0 on my TH and really like it. Easy install but time-consuming.

We traded our Wildwood 273 QBXL that had a bumper swing out gas grill for a Puma 31 QBBH that has an awesome Side Paw Kitchen but no bumper grill. I have a Master Force table top grill that uses the 1LB propane disposal LP canisters.

I was thinking how could I convert for LP quick connect for Trailer LP. I tried the standard male 1/4 NPT connector and it was to big. I got to reading some posts on other threads and the suggested this part from Amazon

Some Q&A said it would work on the master force from Lowes. I ordered it and it came today.

With it mounted I would have to use on the edge of the table so I thought just cut part of the trim

Marked the trim and old school hack saw in less than one minute

I think it will work great

I think the valve was less than $25

I will try it out on our 1st trip scheduled for 3/29. The Puma sure is a nice step up from the Wildwood

That big castle nut should not need a socket. Just pull the cotter pin and turn it with a pair of slip joint pliers. At least that's how I was taught 60 years ago and have never had a problem. If it's welded to the spindle because of bearing failure that's another thing!

Had that happen two weeks ago. Needed a 2 1/2 " socket, an 18" cheater bar and all the strength I had to get the spindle nut off. Dexter had damaged the spindle threads at the factory. Dexter replaced the axel for me at no charge (warranty) in about 2 weeks.

Took off the reese revolution hitch inspected it , greased it real good reinstalled it , no more squeaking. Deleted the factory water filter in the basement. Plugged into power , charged the battery, turned on gas and fired up the furnace, turned on the fire place. Got out latter and installed the observation camera that DW gave me for Christmas. Did some cleaning and loading things back in. And trying to remember everything from my PDI with the dealer from last November. DW yelled at me and said, honey we have a hole in the floor. Sure enough under the bathroom sink, but it's a cut out for laundry to drop down to the basement. She didn't know it was there lol. Tuesday getting new tires . I have to say I really love this 5er. It stays so much cleaner than my old TT. The difference in the material used on the roof leaves no black streaks at all. All winter long outside without a cover under a tree and it is still shiny. Old trailer would have needed washed and scrubbed with black streak remover. Life have gotten easier . Next week we are all on vacation and cant wait rain or shine we are going .

Removed the OEM outdoor squeakers...

And Installed upgraded outdoor speakers... replaced the OEM $3 el cheapo's with a new set of MB Quart's.


Sounds good, even out of the fantastic "Drive" unit.
