She got a bath, roof and walls.

303'ed all the slide seals and anything else plastic or rubber I could find.

Fixed the plumbing issue with the outside sink in the rear slide. The pex appeared short and when the slide was fully extended and the supply hose to the faucet was pulled so tight is was kinked where it secured to the faucet. The issue was the flexible supply line at the other end of the pex was jammed on the other side of the trailer not allowing the pex to slide out along with the slide.

10-4. I have one of those from my old unit. My problem is the steps may not be 3” off the ground....prolly average 5-6” and these require 9” or more.

I haven't had good results with 303 on hard plastic; cracks develop later on.

Was looking at running some new wiring in the front of the trailer. Found the diamond plate was screwed down with 5 very small screws in 8 feet at the bottom. 4 had torn out and there was a 2 inch gap in the middle. I could see up into the cap. Wood deck, insulation. Framing. Well water won't get in during rain, but towing in the rain, that won't do. Had to pull the truck box that I installed for the batteries and tools. Added about 8 screws with washers, then used etrnabond tape to seal it up. Painted the tape black. Reinstalled box, cleaned up the wiring and reinstalled batteries. Washed, waxed, and 303ed it last weekend. Going to be a clean and mod summer as DW has some medical issues we must deal with.

LOVE mine! I really like the remote fob because I can sit in the truck and use the rear view camera to get the ball under the hitch, then lower the hitch onto the truck, THEN put it in park and get out to hook up. Removes the issue of putting it in park just to have the truck settle an inch or two out of place. It really makes hooking up without help a bit faster. Plus, the jack does not struggle a bit. I actually lifted the rear wheels of my TV off the ground before I realized it.

Didn't like the receptacle located on the underside of the kitchen cabinet. So installed a duplex receptacle under the kitchen counter top. Now no more cord clutter.

Restocked the fridge with beer. It's nice to be able to get a cold one without having to go into the house!

I bought the unit without the remote. I got the Husky Brute based on happy comments here and a 79% approval rating on Amazon.

Added different lights.

Swapped out the lighting over the master bed. What a difference!

Time for new batteries for our Forester. Read all of the threads on battery options and decided the Costco Interstate for $87 was the best deal for me. Can’t complain got 5 yrs out of originals.

Cleaned and painted the battery compartment. Then added plastic trays to the bottom.

Maybe that's how they attached the 45's and 90 degrees elbows in the water system.
Just kidding.
Have a great 3rd trip. Were just finishing our 3rd trip also. Leave tomorrow after 7 days in mid Ohio.
Cross creek campground in Delaware ohio. Was very nice and would return

It appears you’ve tampered with Forest Rivers Economy Water Conservation Package. I hope you’re already out of warranty.

WOW I know what I want, I always try to do 2 or 3 things while my slow Lippert tounge jack goes up or down.

I miss my remote I had with previous Wildwood that operated slide, stab jacks & awning

3rd trip really started off pulling into the pull through, level check on bumper and tongue, then I noticed slide to close to pedestal, well after and hour and some jack stands to get tuck disconnected and raise high enough we said nope time to hook back up and back up past the pedestal vs pull forward like it did. 2 lessons learned look at neighbors and use my built in truck off road mode that shows degree angles

Tough lesson to learn at least below 70 and low humidity so not much sweating

California registration

Put really expensive tags on the license plate after renewing the registration. Thanks for the ridiculously high registration that somehow got even higher California!
