Pretty much over in my part of the USA. We have entered the transition month here. Been here 15 years and it has been the same. I do feel sorry for any Northern state and in our countries mid and plain state flooding. I heart go's out to all of them... I will probably have 1 more freeze here this year which would be typical. But on the good note, all CG's open in this State APRIL1st.

Thanks Paulie1138,
Because the lid is slightly smaller than the seat the rainwater all went over the edge of the lid, onto the seat and into the bowl.

Dometic 300 series foot flush toilet.

I suspect just lifting the lid first will keep the wife happy.

I want to replace my toilet seat to a no slam shut lid. This seat they put on it is very flimsy and cheap. The toilet itself seems to be pretty good porcelain, tall, foot flush, even has water holes all the way around the rim for a cleaner flush. I hope I can pick one up at lowes or Walmart. But I have not measured yet to see if it requires a same brand seat.

Dometic?? Model 310 or 320? May have to get one at Camping World or Amazon. We got ours a CW, also Dometic brand so we knew it would fit. One of the best mods we've made.....nice a quiet, sturdy & comfy.

Received my new Dexter Axle grease seals today. The mailman delivered them as the snow was piling up this afternoon. As much as I want to get started repacking the bearings, I sure as heck ain't doing it in a snowstorm!

Washed my trailer. Even though my last trip was almost 4,000 miles (total) and I put it away unwashed, I'm amazed at how quick it cleaned up. Apparently the rainstorm I drove through in CA on the way home removed most of the bugs on the front and WA/OR were too cold for bugs.

I think that next week I'll take care of all my yard maintenance I'll take off on a trip (dart in map). Will mow the lawn first so I have at least a couple weeks before I have to be back.

Ugh, it came in today and has metal body. I hope it will last at least as long as my previous one did. Still looking for a plastic body that is affordable.

Had the Furrion wireless observation cameras (rear and both sides) installed on our SOB yesterday. Replaced the Carbon Monoxide alarm and had it washed/waxed.
We wanted to go camping this weekend as I had an unexpected 4 day weekend, but all the darn snowbirds refuse to leave our state. I don't blame them, but in a few months while everyone is enjoying the summer we will avoid camping because of the excessive heat.

Took mine out of winter storage. Yes, we still have a few piles of snow left but beautiful sun today even though it was 19 Deg at 8am when I headed out. Everything OK but it was stored indoors so no weather related concerns. Just needs a good wash. Dusty.

I need to find a different compressor to pump up tires. The Harbor Freight pancake compressor could only manage 70 lbs. I need 80 lbs. Gotta decide what to do. Carry one or fill tires at truck stop.

Also need to re-adhere my inside slide seal. It has come unglued from the wall. Any ides on an adhesive?

Blessings!
