If this is what you are talking about then it is fabricated. For the price it is handy. Love mine.

pulled it out of its spot where we keep it beside the shop to the driveway where it is more easily loaded for out upcoming 5 day trip to Monroe, LA, following the ULL baseball team to their last 3 game series of the season.

Checked all four tires and insured they are all at 95 PSI as per the sidewall markings.

I also dropped the arm out of the Reese Sidewinder pin box and relubed it with White Lithium Grease. Reinstalled it, retorqued it and it is good to go now for another year.

Caesarís Creek, in Ohio? We have our trailer stored about 5 miles from there.

It is our place to go just because. We always stay there in November as our last camp out. Use the devil out of the cheap full hookups. Use our Golden buckeye card for a 50% discount!

Nice little park.

Have fun.

By chance are you a player. I play dobro. Bluegrass jam on Tuesday.

Nothing on mine but I was kind enough to lend a heavy duty 40' 12AWG cord to my neighbor to connect their hybrid TT where they have it parked to prep for their next camping event

Belt sanded down a designed in kiddie danger, the pointed end of the kitchen cupboards near the door. Tried to round the curve to match with a Dremel drum. Put A LOT of stain on it to darken the wood. Won't need the pool noodle bumper anymore

Yep. We are here. About a 6 hour trip for us from PA.

Yes, 5 string banjo picker.
Dang! Jam Tuesday, we leave Monday.
I'll keep it in mind for next time.
Always great to meet other pickers.Click image for larger version

Have a great day. Future trips are Ortona Locks Army COE, Blue Crab festival in Crisfield, and St Augustine for Biketoberfest and Anniversary. Thanks all.
Still can't get pics to load right!@
I posted a picture a couple of years ago on my solution which was welding a receiver to the frame by the tongue. I stored my WDH there whenever I wasn't pulling the trailer. I'll see if I can find the picture and repost.

Might have been me. I bought a short receiver and welded it to my frame.

No before photos, grey tank valve flange failed, it had been cracked for years, possibly at the factory.

First day we, my father and I replaced just the gate valve and water still poured out.

Day 2 we got the flange and a few couplers and some new pipe and some other tools to complete the job. I wanted to move the valve from directly under the skirt and difficult for me to reach. A couple of hours later and others coming by the campsite to observe and comment on what we were doing. A new grey water gate valve, flange and new position. I am happy

After photos in a bit.

I’m using essential oil of peppermint on cotton balls in ceramic mugs placed strategically throughout the 5er, and supplementing that with 4 pouches of Fresh Cab.

I also removed the OE WaterPur RCS water filter housing that was in a ridiculously bad location well behind the rear wall of the pass through. Thankfully my skinny DS was home from university to help with that task. I’ll continue to used the solid white filter housing (that I bought from RV Water Filter store) outside. I use it inline to filter “city water” and all water going into the FW tank. I still have to install my new 50A PI hard wired EMS and sanitize the water system before we head out for our first trip next weekend.

Started my warranty item list. The outside kitchen 2-burner stovetop doesn’t seem to be getting any propane and the drivers side pass through door seal is leaking.
Discovered that the quick connect for the outside stove top has a shut off valve that I hadn’t seen the first time I tried to use it. (I need a face slap emoji!)
