Test run tonight , sleeping alone. I get a sense of allergies in here and when I did my cleaning the vacuum was loaded with dog hair. I need to see how bad these allergies are, or it could be in my mind, we'll find out tonight

Update: I'm fine and no allergies, I'm good to go . Crummy sleep though but I'm sure at the campground after a long day, a good meal and a few drinks I'll get better sleep, lol

Yes we are , Caledonia Wisconsin jelly stone. My father in law has a fifth wheeler and he's celebrating his 50th anniversary there so we're tagging along in our little 24 footer - let's hope in no rain

Weight distribution is on and test drive went well. I have the electric brake set to 8, does that seem about right? Feels right, the WD hitch dropped my van down about 5/8" but it is is leveled and the tt has the front about 3/4 higher than the back ( 24' tt ). Does this all seem pretty safe ? I did get it in the highway and went up to 63 mph and felt pretty good. Whatever opinions or tips are welcomed , thanks .

See if you can make some adjustments to get the front of your travel trailer slightly lower than the back. Otherwise sounds like you're on your way.

Awning is in and darn it ! I ordered a 14' and really needed a 15' so it's about 4" shy on each side from the old awning, Oh well, a mature mistakes I suppose. Here's a pic and here's a link of a great video that without I would have never have been able to do this.

Maybe I do use a 14' after all, the problem I see is that 14' is like a trade size. See the details below - 14' is actually a 13' - 13'2" . Oh well, 4 inches from each side I will just have to live with till I ether I replace or get used to it.
