Swapped out the bedside outlets for these with USB chargers. Found out the space behind the outlet is a nice box of about 1' x 2' x 6" high space that should be used for storage (second photo). So I'll eventually cut out a side panel and make a storage cubby in there (after walling in the outlet wires better).

Also removed the caulk from around the edges of 4 of the windows. Tomorrow the plan is to do a little more cleaning of the caulk, then apply new caulk to them. Click image for larger version

We have a E-Pro 19 FD. I removed one of the benches on the dinette and built a little cabinet along the wall. This replaces the lost storage. We added a little hasock/ chair for seating. This really opens up the little trailer. Only the two of us so it is now much more open and user friendly.Tje little drawer fronts with holes in them are shoe drawers. They will be painted too.

Moving it!

Moving my Wildwood to a new storage location. The one I'm in now I reserved sight unseen and it is rough. Big power pole right where I need to back in, nearly no security, and a padlocked gate. Moving a half mile down from this location to a much nicer place. Storage is premium where I am (near a state park) so was happy to just find this first place! But glad I found something better.

I'm going to finish packing this morning and head out this afternoon for our last camping trip of the season. The weather isn't going to be the best on the southern Maine coast but we're prepared for it.

We added our sign. We bought the sign at the Apple Festival in Hendersonville, NC. Our local sign shop did the lettering for us. Click image for larger version

Generator won't stay running. Have a service visit from the Onan provider here today.

Yesterday my father-in-law and i messed with it a bit. We changed out the fuel filter.

I honestly think the carb needs cleaned or replaced, but I'm not ready to tackle that just yet.

My father-in-law called it. He said it was like the engine wasn't getting enough gas. The techs showed up today and checked to see if the carb had fuel in it (it did not). They hooked up a troubleshooting pump and it pulled from the tank very well. Replaced the pump and all is well.

Also fixed the surging issue I was having.

Should be under Onan's 2 year/2,000 mile warranty. I have the coordinator/sales lady looking into it.

Moved the thermostat for the front A/C (master bedroom) from the main salon to the master bedroom where it should have been installed in the first place.

It's crazy that the factory installed both A/C thermostats right next to each other in the main salon.

winterized our new GEOPRO 19FD trailer before bringing it home.
noticed:
1. the Furrion receiver for the 30 amp is not lighting up anymore with plugged in. the plug into the power box lights up though.

2. that the sewer stabilizer strap to the dump controls (looks like gas tank strapping) was snapped in 2

3. replaced defective door to the bathroom pantry (which Rockwood supplied me with) and noticed that the new door has 2 white bow-ties in each corner vs the one which was there on the original door.

4. checked 7 more of my cabinet doors in the trailer and noticed that they are all doing the same thing with the pantry door did.

5. the Murphy bed frame is 2 inch screwed through the aluminum frame and into a 1/8 inch thick wallboard on one side and a piece of .1 x 1 on teh other end. POOR DESIGN as it has torn itself out on teh 1/4 paneling side.

6. the Suburban stove top will not latch due to what looks someone during assembly put a lot of weight to get it to close - bending the stainless steel clip at the top and the metal framing at the bottom all to crap.

Rockwood says they don't built a poor quality product.

I would somewhat disagree.
The storage drawer under the bench seat fell apart due to no glue in the joints and insufficient screws holding it on the sliding track.

The antenna was also destroyed at the factory and the rear awning arm would not release.

I've since then corrected that issue along with put about 8 hours of my time into fixing what This unit I believe was started on a Friday, and finished on a Tuesday after a civic holiday and the workers were hung over!

The rear awning arm would not release and it required an awning bumper arm kit which cost me 126$ and change ;plus time to install.
Dometic reimbursed me directly for the parts and labor because Rockwood and the dealership have not!

It's what I didn't do.....

Readied the camper to be winterized, removing bed linens, liquids, pantry staples and such. As I said in another post, May seems so far off.....
