Got the bleach/water solution drained & flushed from the fresh water tanks, and 3 loads of laundry done. Just about ready to leave. Today I'll put a little "travel water" in the FW tanks, put a few things away, then give the TV and TT a good vacuuming.

Forgot to mention in yesterday's post that I also did a little repair work on the metal "skirt" that runs around the bottom of the trailer. It was attached to some stabilizing braces with self-tapping sheet metal screws. The braces kept popping off the screws, causing the skirting to "flap" while towing. I used a drill to enlarge the screw holes in the skirting, reinforcing metal, and bracing. Then I changed out the sheet metal screws for small stainless steel bolts, secured by matching stainless steel lock-nuts with nylon inserts. They wont rust (like the sheet metal screws did), they'll hold the skirting to the braces, and should never work loose.

Waxed with entire thing with my new Meguire's DA polisher, and treated the tent ends, rubber and plastics with 303. Let' go camping!

Removed the shelves from the refrigerator, removed a little rust from areas where the original finish had been cracked, scuffed them up and refinished them. While they were out I wiped out the inside with disinfecting wipes. Replaced the shelves this morning and looks pretty good.

After changing the oil in the genny, I looked at the Onan manual to see if any other maintenance was needed.

Looks like I missed the Spark Arrester Cleaning at 150 hrs. So I did that today, Looks like it needs to be done every 50 hours after the 150.

Parked it in the driveway after a successful first trip of the season. Looking forward to many more this year!

I cleaned the low point drain valves and lubed the o-rings with keg lube. Now, they seal like new! I also dewinterized.

Crawled around under my TT looking for problems. Had to remount a wire clip holding the black tank sensor wire- screw holding it had fallen out. Same thing happened to one of the clips holding the copper propane line going to the water heater. That screw broke off. Drilled a hole and remounted it to the frame crossmember with a sheet metal screw.

Failed misrably at my first reese dual cam installation. I accidentally mounted the cam arms 1/2" to far back on the trailer frame. I really didnt think that it woulda make much difference since the cam arm has about 3" or so of adjustment but apparently it makes a huge difference. Ol well ill try again tomorrow if the rain holds of.

I painted the axles and suspension from the long trip up north that knocked some of the factory paint off in the rough December driving conditions from the plant to here, took care of any surface rust, looks like new again. Check for rodent entry and getting ready to spray all suspected accesses of the rodents with foam insulation. Also started to rig up the 20' propane hose for a grill with a quick coupling set up.
