OK, thanks for the explanation.

Moved it from storage position to cement pad out the back door to load out for this weekend's camping. First this year. YEA!

Fixed a leak in the outside kitchen drain. The pipes slide inside one another as the sink is in a slide. The rubber coupler came off the larger stationary pipe.

Fixed the dripping faucet in the outside kitchen that the dealer said they fixed.

Flushed the antifreeze from the water lines.

Flushed the water heater and ordered a new anode rod.

Cleaned the drain plug threads as they were caked with calcium buildup.

Climbed up on the roof, disassembled and deep cleaned our exhaust fans. We have one in bathroom and one in kitchen, and they get used A LOT. Kitchen one in particular gets extra dirty as we cook a lot. Got them all cleaned up and looking like new!

Ordered another fan from Dexter for my bathroom vent. Last one only lasted 8 months. We use it hard, though- running a large part of each day.

I will say, Dexter’s warranty is really good- no questions asked and they’re expediting shipping to get it to be before I change campgrounds next weekend.

Removed all of the stuff stored under our bed so that I could lubricate the slide. Found that the factory had mis-installed the lifts for the bed so that the left side had came off of the mounting bracket. I repositioned the lift mounts so that both lifts were no longer in a bind and the bed would move without any problems. Then removed the plywood covering the lift and lubricated all moving parts.

I've had my trailer parked in my sister's driveway for the past year since my neighborhood doesn't allow trailer parking, but sadly she passed away suddenly in April. Since she was a widow, her home is up for sale (and I'm Executor), I needed to find a safe place to store my trailer. On Monday, I cleaned off all of the leaves, sticks and acorns and then thoroughly washed the roof using Dicor Roof Cleaner, closed the 2 slides and then washed the balance of the exterior. On Tuesday, I moved the trailer to a nearby commercial storage site where I got their last trailer site for a very reasonable monthly rate. Backed it in onto some 2x8's under the tires (site is coarse gravel) and pulled my empty 30# propane tank and had it refilled. Added a pair of APProducts ultrasonic level sensors to the tank bottoms and added MasterLock cables and padlocks to keep them from wandering off (just a precaution as the gated lot has high fencing, night illumination and security cameras). Added storage hooks on white oak crossbars I u-bolted onto the trailer ladder to hold my small multi-ladder when on the road. Next week I'll stock up for a trip to Keowee-Toxaway State Park in SC for a family camping gathering -- looking forward to getting back to nature. I'm contemplating a small inflatable pontoon boat for better fishing on that trip.

Glad you got the last spot! So glad I can keep mine at home and use it as I like. I was just watching TV and having a cold drink in mine today .

Started getting the unit ready for our trip to Illinois in 10 days. Checked all air pressures, removed gear only used when the canoe goes along (it won't this time) and started sorting through clothing that probably won't be needed. IUt needs a bath BAD! Maybe some time this week, if it doesn't rain.

What did you do to your camper today?

I engineered a redneck version of some good steps. I usually put blocks under the steps, but plastic won’t stay still. I wanted $350-500 steps, but that ain’t in the cards.
Here is what I did less the feet. I will need to remove the legs before storing.

And the proposed feet unless I find something better

Seems solid. I got the junk at Lowe’s. I should have used 1/2” but the long nuts were 3x as much and I thought the fit would be better with 3/8”.

Talking

Had to make a mod for our new hose to fit. Our 15ft hose we bought for our e-Pro we found out was a little to long and the end caps would not close. So I unscrewed the end and cut off excess so we now have a 13ft fully extended hose. (no other mods needed, although I will admit I removed the tube before my light bulb came on)

I installed a low-cost solution that added lots of stability to my fold-down steps -- takes just a few small bolts and nuts to attach it to the underside of the lower step and it locks up out of the way while underway. Fully adjustable for several inches of terrain differences. Here is the link to it on Amazon.com.
