Not sure I should say this but ordered 5 GY endurance
Mounting, balancing and new stems $645 out the door.
Kalamazoo Michigan. Kzoo tire. Been buying my tires there for 25 years.
I guess I read one too many post about blow outs. Trailer is a 2019 rockwood ultra 2606ws. Tires have about 600 miles but we have some long trips this year ( just retired ) so I'm not taking a chance.

Doesnt hurt my feelings, too much anyway. That would have been a long drive in a truck that gets 11 when towing. Sounds like you got a really good deal. A lot of our tire stores hear are not trailer friendly. Hope all of us get long rides and good service out of these tires.

Starting to get Sunny ready for a trip later in the month. Checked some air pressures and starting to flush some lines as well as take out the unnecessary stuff - canoe paddles, trolling motor, PFD's, etc.

Oxidation from road spray has been a continuing issue with my Bigfoot Levelers.

Fridge came open and spilled all the drinks out one trip when I opened the outside kitchen, no cold beverage after setting up. On another trip inside fridge came open and DW had to clean up eggs and other items off the floor.

I was thinking velcro like child safety lock should do the trick

I tried this on inside and not same set up the side wall / trim gets in the way, I will have to think of something else

Here is the bummer of my good deed. DW went in Front bedroom door and figured out slide was in, well she dis not pull bedroom door closed. I found this out putting the main slide out and hearing the wood crackling. Well dang now door is warped and will not stay closed and trim on slide pushed out. Maybe I will fix latter. Bottom hinge side of door wall is now lose from floor and door not square anymore.

Put shutoff valves on the low point drains and filmed the start up amps using the Micro-Air Easystart on both a 13.5K and 15K Dometic AC.

Update on my main slide getting caught on bedroom door on its way out. One reason you donít throw stuff away.

I needed to lower and move out door striker to just make it work. I did not want to chisel the frame so I thought I have a house striker.

After some filing and a washer on the back side bedroom closes and latches easy.

Rack one up to bone head move and not checking slide before operating it

One thing in my favor it is not 96 degrees outside like last week. I am going to leave AC on overnight and do some more odds and ends tomorrow

Here are a couple of pictures

Not pretty but it works and it sure sucks for camper that is less than 3 months old.

Our previous camper had a slide but bedroom doors we slide vs swing

Next trip is 1.5 weeks to the Blue Ridge Parkway Whoooooot

Today I emptied the main basement area, vacuumed and washed the floor. It was overdue, it was hot, but now I can have a beer or two and celebrate one job done.

We try to do that at least once a year plus sort out some stuff we have not used.

Get some Velcro sticky tape in long pcs. Cut one side in shorter pcs and use the other like duct tape.

Replaced the factory seal (with gaps) on the door on the lower edge. The wind nosie when traveling was intense. I guess I'll know tomorow on our trip to the lake if it works. I may put a bright light inside tonight see if it fixed the gaps.

Also filed down the door latch so it would close/open easier when slightly off level.

Designed & built a single propane tank transport cradle. Very hi-tech. Leftover 2x4 sections and two screws per joint. Used a frame/pipe clamp to hold each part together to predrill and drill the screws. Add a strap and it'll take a hard turn to flip that over.

Very nice especially since milk crates ate hard to come by
