Nilight TR-05 60" 2PCS 60'' 180 LEDs Bed Strip Kit with Waterproof on/Off Switch Blade Fuse 2-Way Splitter Extension Cable for Cargo, Pickup Truck, SUV, RV, Boat (White Light) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07KXR799K..._-lLQDbSCRH8DP
The experience I had with adhesive backed LED strips is they didn't hold. I had added them to my enclosed trailer and the cargo bay in my TT, later I got rails with screw in clips I put the LED strips in.

Iíve never found LED strip lights with acceptable mounting tape. Started using Scotch outdoor mounting tape and have never had it come loose, even under the vehicle where itís constantly exposed and to the elements. Easy to attach to the strip and trim the width.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

Looks good, I might try some on other things. I do like the look of the LED rails I added better than the bare LED strips stuck to the wood studs.

Can you ask them to just send you a new entry door lock? Easy to install, Iíll bet the rest for your lockers are just that common 731 I think is the #. How did they expect you to secure your TT?

The CH751 keys are most common for the camper doors, truck caps door handles and even shed door handles, There are only about a dozen different keys that fit all of them.

hibernating til Spring

Took the 5er to the dealer and had the bearings repacked, we have disc brakes, had a slide seal reattached. Had the lines blown out and antifreeze in the traps. Took it straight to storage for the winter. Fairground provides inside storage for a great rate. Will see it again on March 28th. Will spend the winter making plans for next year and thinking about upgrades to make it better.

Just got home, we got the camper cleaned out, food all packed up, she is all winterized. All tanks empty, she is ready for another winter.
Didn't get done: roof cleaned and re sealed or camper cleaned and waxed. I did it last spring, I like doing it twice a year, but things came up this year to prevent the time to do it. I will do extra cleaning next spring and put the Henry 887 on the roof and be all cought up.

Replaced the China Bomb spare with a Maxxis E range 10 ply. After the car hauler lost 3 China Bombs on our last trip I am taking no chances with one in or on the camper. One more trip and sometime this winter the camper gets 4 new tires and the 2 year old Maxxis on the camper go on the car hauler.

It is likely the S1 key if not the ch751 key. You are better off replacing the slam latches with something keyed like the door.

I did these and the cam lock on the water compartment as well so 1 key for the whole trailer now. I swapped the door locks so the master key will not work on them as well. Worth every penny.

You can unscrew the latches and get the key numbers from the inside of the locks. You can order the replacement keys or the latches keyed the way you want them and bill camping world for the trouble....

Hope that works for you. Best of luck with the new camper!
