Good thought, but no ladder, and if there was, it'd be way far from the entry door.

I'm thinking on the little removable table, but that may change.

Got it home from vacation last night and parked.. This morning, we took off the front skirt that had gotten cracked and broken up on the way home and took it to our RV repair guy, after we had found him again, and got him to order a replacement piece. Cleaning, washing an waxing will happen on a different day

First Trip of 2019

Took the family to Desoto State Park in Mentone/Ft. Payne, AL this past weekend. Weather was great! Did decide to go ahead and order the PUGs today though. As everyone has mentioned before Bob is VERY helpful and seems like a really nice dude. I'll post up a review and pics once I get them installed.

Itís actually the Bekant desk. Perfect top size and unlike the tables, only has the two legs vs a 4 leg. The height is adjustable.

I installed the magic 6" white tape on all the roofs penetrations plus the front and rear caps and caulked. I was surprised to see some screw heads at the skylight, this roof is only a year old. I feel better now about not getting any leaks....

Ordered a new 30 pound propane tank and a Camco small boat/RV dish drainer. Received the drainer today, tank due tomorrow. Www.walmart.com. They have a 10% off coupon at the store and, surprise, they took off a second 10% off each item! Cool. Promo to use walmart.com, also over $50 gets free shipping.
Moved the TT from one side to the other of the garage, outside. Blocked sunlight and viewing of some of my wife's plants. SWMBO spoke!
Actually, it was the first time hooking up my new TV to the TT. Test fitted the WDH, might work without any or much change. Set up the camera target for the trailer assist system. Lining up with a camera, even without the assist set up, made for an easy one person ball hook up
Also, set up the tracking info in the truck for the TT. Sweet, it will track mileage on the TT everytime I hook it up and acknowledge which trailer it is.

How was it to install the trailer assist system? Thatís the one were you put the decal on and line everything up right? Was it fairly easy to do? I have the 2018 F250 and havenít done mine yet still looking for a place to do it. Thanks

Pretty darn easy. Truck came with a seperate towing assist install guide with 2 targets and two data sheets. You can get more targets for more trailers from the dealer, I was told.
Just hook up the trailer on the ball and pull forward on some level ground. Look at the guide (also online AND there is a Ford Utube video), measure and place the target 9-22" from the center of the ball. Measure from the camera to the target, from the license plate to the ball center, target to the ball center (I used the center of the target). One last measurement, tailgate to center of axle(s). Start the truck and walk through the prompts. Hardest part for me was getting Trailer name in I kept wanting to hit OK for each letter which backed up the menu 🙊
Do not use the above for your procedure, it's just an overview, use the factory guide! Watch the Ford Utube, see how simple it is and wonder why you didn't do it before

I see they also sell just the leg assembly for $99. I wonder how that might work with the existing dinette top. I may have to check the measurements and try one (that way the color of the table top still matches the trailer interior, but I get the different leg setup).

Also with the push-pin installation table top installation, I could still use the table top for the bed conversion of the dinette (right now it's just us, but we do have an infant grand baby who is growing fast).

It does have overnight parking although we were not in the R/V parking area but a part of their lot close to the restaurant we had chose to eat at close by. The lot is large enough to park 200 R/Vs and still not encroach on customer parking.

Also, it isn't in OH but rather Wheeling, WV as we were on our way home from OH to PA.

I put folding legs on my dinette table so that I could get rid of the factory pedestals and keep my tabletop. It was easy to do and I can use the table in other parts of the trailer or even outside.
