Made all the beds up, a serious PITA. MY DW doesn't do it, requires removing the mattresses to do it right. Used some of those stretchy clip sheet corners to help pull the "fitted" sheets tighter and smoother. I did figure out it was easier to work the bottom bunk through both the inside access and the storage door instead of trying to crawl in and try to make a bed while laying on it
Made reservations for mid June in Erie PA, combining camping and the state VFW Convention, never been to one. At Presque Isle Passages, half the sites are "buddy sites" where you pull in from opposite directions so you have your doors, awnings, and activity area facing each other.

returned home with a new 2019 Geo Pro 19FD camper.
noticed it has a slack tire on the dealership lot which they pumped up before leaving. had to pump it up again 3 times now. will have to take it in and get it broken down and resealed. Might as well HS balance them at the same time.


need to install a new TV mount this weekend.
also have to figure out where some of my additional trailer stuff is not going because I usually haul a 38 foot 5th wheel TH.

Not all today, but since Sunday:
Uncovered, dewinterized, sanitized, repacked everything we removed for the winter, checked the bearings and brakes....I’m tired! Time to camp!

Last weekend we went for our first camping trip of the year, it was in the upper 60's-70 with lows around 40. Now this weekend high's around 40 and night lows in the 20's and possibilities of the 'S' word snow. I guess time to blow out the lines again . Darn Wisconsin

Same for us here in the mountains of Western PA.
Since I store our rig right next to the garage, I plan to turn my furnace on at the lowest setting for the couple nights that it is to be in the 20ļ's or run an electric space heater.

bought a 19 Geopro 19FD.
removed most of the cargo space panels as they took up 30% of the space to cover over a few wires. will commence making some framed boxes for the wiring protection and gain a lot of valuable space back.

The frustrating part was I post pics here frequently, they just would not load this time. After three tries I gave up and deleted my useless post. I tried to upload five pics.

Ran into a similar construction practice in my TT. Inside the cabinets, large panels were placed diagonally to cover wiring and piping, taking away a lot of storage space. Plus there was a nice space above my radio blocked off. All opened up now maximizing cabinet space.

There were some web site loading issues the last few days.
Maybe it was during this period.

I suspect all is well now.

Screen door pull handles- sounds simple enough especially since trailer is pretty level. I test fit living room door use automatic center punch drill holes and install bar one. DW said she was going in to clean so I left door open and went to front bedroom door repeated steps and went to close the door and screen was hitting door striker i tried to push to no avail. Now i figured it must of sprung at some point and DW did not mention it, i do not use this door it is on her side of the bed after allot of trying to figure it out i went inside and tried to see what it was hung on, screen handle on striker side was clear, handle on jam side well was ooooppppps i installed on outside where weather stripping seals what a duuurrr moment

I thought about cutting a notch in stripping but then i though no do it right

So i start on living room door drill one hole the break bit on second hole, go in and eat dinner get a size smaller bit finish drilling now screw will not go in all the way since i only drilled hole in first part of metal, break screw and i could not get it out so I decided use a small lock washer and drill hole under original. I will touch up visible holes later and finish bedroom one tomorrow. It is what it is and at least i posted for all to get a laugh or feel no alone with ooopppppppsssss and duuuurrr moments

Yes, you can PULL your screen door closed with them. But when the screen is attached to the outer door, not so great to pull on. In my case, the little latch that holds the two doors together is weak and pops apart as much as stays together if using the screen door bar to shut the doors. I added a pull loop of cord to the pull tab on the outer door latch to pull on.

It's why I did the magnet mod as shown in this video.

One reason I try my best to coach people to pull it to with handle but pull on outside door handle to pull it to latch

We have the same setup and I almost always pull the door closed with teh extended screen door handle/bar.

I too broke ours and replaced it. I tried to switch to using the door handle and just instinctively grab the screen door handle because it is so handy.

The outer cover is what broke on mine. It does not take much to hold it together, my first fix was to wrap it with black electrical tape. That worked fine.

But,I wanted something that looked better so I replaced it with a new one.

Then I repaired the old cover with epoxy. Then I used epoxy to glue a thin aluminum sheet I cut the size of the outer cover. This will take the pressure off of that weak plastic cover.

The screws bearing directly on the aluminum with the plastic cover in a "sandwich" between the aluminum screen door frame and the aluminum plate

When the new one breaks I now have a replacement that should last indefinitely.

Bought the adjustable bushings so I can get the front end aligned per the specs bclemens posted way back in 2014. It's probably the last "fix" I'll do on the drive-ability of the 3010DS for awhile. I know others have changed the shocks, but I can't see that expense since I haven't had that much of an issue lately.
