Moved it from its normal parking pad to an out of the way spot. Have a contractor coming by to run a 30 amp service, a waterline with a yard hydrant and a sewer line to the septic tank for a backyard dump station. It'll be much easier to prepare for a trip, empty everything when we return and wash it.

We're having the same thing done at our new home base. I can't wait to have the TT at our house with full hookups... for FREE. I ran a Quicken report to total all the storage fees I've paid since the TT was purchased back in February of 2000 and the cost was over $6,000.00.

The only thing I did different from you was I'm having the same 20A-30A-50A box like those in campgrounds installed in case I ever buy an RV that's 50A or a guest RVer that needs 50A comes to visit. The 20A outlet will mainly serve as an extension.

PowerTwin II-30" Electric RV Leveling Stabilizer install

I installed a PowerTwin II-30" Electric RV Leveling Stabilizer on my 2014 Jayco Eagle 338 rlts just in front of the tandem tires. This is just behind (towards the rear) the center of gravity of the unit and is just about the center of the unit. Cost about $600 and two days work. The RV came with front and rear electric Lippert stabilizers but no leveling system. While the Powertwin will not lift the tires off the ground, it will level the unit and provides rock solid stabilization when used with the factory installed front and rear units giving 6 points to the ground. I do not recommend anyone trying this one unless you are very mechanically and electrically inclined. It required some welding, fabricating and moving quite a bit of factory installed stuff out of the way. I put the switches which came with it inside the front storage compartment where they are protected from the weather and secure.

I installed my new propane pigtail today. The old ones leaked. I went with a longer 20" one that I can switch from tank to tank. Checked new one for leaks, and it's good to go. No propane leaking from the new hose.

I just replaced both of my water filters AGAIN. I have a first stage particulate filter and a second stage charcoal filter. Both are 1 micron and were replaced on 7-29-14. I replaced the particulate filter first since it is the cheapest and it wasn't the problem. I really didn't think it was since it wasn't discolored bad at all. I then replaced the charcoal filter and the flow was back to normal.

This park has county water, but with all of the broken water lines that happens virtually every week, obviously a lot of "crud" is getting to my site. I feel better with both of these filters. Normally I get six months out of a charcoal filter, but not this time.

I know before someone says that if I used a 5 or 10 micron filter they would last longer. I want the filtration not longer life.

I didn't do anything to the Jayco today but I did replace my TV's mirrors with some nice towing mirrors. Its hard to find towing mirrors for a Toyota Tacoma but the set I found look as close to factory as possible and they work great.

I bought a tube of Dicor and a Tyvex cover for our new baby for this winter.

I cleaned the perimeter of all my re-sealed windows and then ran a bead of Sikaflex 221 sealant around the top of each. Windows should now be leak free for years. I used some of the remaining sealant to touch up iffy-looking seals around the top of lights, water tank fill, storage compartments and other things on the TT walls.

Now I'm enjoying a cold, refreshing beer.

Winterized the lines

Critter-proofing next. Then into storage she goes.
