So I moved the tt into my driveway today. It's against code having it on my lawn so had to move it. Fits nice... Next to it is the van I will be pulling it with. I have to install the WD hitch and electric brakes still.

Pretty much. I have found stuff on Craigslist too. Granted not new but sufficient.

Getting my old tt ready but then.....

What do you guys recommend I clean this aluminum with? I used CLR and a hard bristle hand scrub and it cleaned pretty good. It was a lot of work though, I'm wondering if a power washer would do a good job?? Spray CLR all over , let sit for a few minutes and then power wash, what do you guys think ?

On my old trailer which was white I would put 1/2 cup bleach in a 5 gal bucket and fill with water. Then I would take my long handled was brush and brush down the whole side then rinse off. This would take away all the grime an stuff off the camper. In my area the north facing walls get this green fungus and that mixture takes care of it and it looked good afterwards. Of course if I had ambition then would use some spray on wax.

I would not do that to my new one because it is brown. But worked great for the white one.

I believe those are your sliders so when you slide the upper arm up your main arm it locks in. Did you watch the video on the awning on the link a few post ago?

Ok, now I'm aggravated , lol - this toilet leak repair has gotten on my nerves a bit. The plastic hand tightened but broke . Where can I get one and it looks like it's a whole unit. It has this white pipe with these black collars around it. See pics please

Those are PEX tubing. The crimping tool is expensive. Either use gator fitting, buy crimping tool, or see if dealer will fix it mobile Rv repair person.

Of course you will still need the fitting and the pipe besides the cost of tool.
