Torqued the lug nuts to spec and so glad I did. Inflated tires. Traveled to a full hookup site at a PA state park to complete dewinterization and sanitize the fresh water system.

Baked a pizza in the oven for the kids, using a pre made pizza crust.

We planned to dewinterize our Jayco today. Planned is the key word here. Hooked up the city water connection and I went inside to check all plumbing connections. When the DW turned on the water a LARGE leak was noted on the ionside of the connection. After much scraping and inventing some new words, got the old silicone off and was able to remove the old inlet. After breaking the tiny plastic clip that hel the inlet pipe in the flange, a high speed trip, 25 miles, to Camping World we returned home and I installed the new unit. DW turned on the water and a small drip appeared at the connection. I CAN NOT tighten the joints anymore. I teflon taped the joints first. Now it was getting dark and I was ready to stop. Tomorrow morning I will make a 20 mile run to Menards, get another plastic nipple, GOOD teflon tape and some non harding joint compound and once again we will TRY to dewinterize !! Wow, I am having a great time camping !!LOL!!

Found all tires to be 15 psi lower than recommended. Brought them up to pressure. Hope to increase mileage. Evicted a family or wasps from the water heater access.


Can't wait to get going next week.
Congratulations on being retired. It is the best job I have ever had.....smile!

I changed my Designer tires from the original Marathons to G614's two years ago. The Marathons always lost a few psi while being parked for a few weeks and the G614's never change. I always check them anyway and I have a TPMS, but the fact that they hold air longer between trips amazes me.

I replaced my mattress today

I replaced my mattress with one from these guys. Let me tell you what a difference it was. If you want to have some great people to deal with please call. I have rounded corners on the lower half and could not find anything that I liked and the person hat I talked to was a great help.

They had me measure the old one and helped me select out the foam and cover. I did not even think about the cover, but they told me that it would be good to use a cool-max cover that is zipped so it can be removed and cleaned.

The mattress cam in only 5 days from Colorado to California. It arrived FedEx and was rolled and packed in a small (6 foot by 18 inch box); I opened the box and found the mattress rolled in a paper with tape holding the shape.

Took inside the RV laid out and removed the packing to find the mattress vacuumed pack in a bag. Opened the bag and look out the mattress expanded out to the full 11 inches thick in lest then 5 minutes.
Let me say, if you are thinking about a new mattress think about t giving MattressInsider.Com a call. And also there was free shipping.

Made the bed, turned the frig on to cool. Loading clothes and provisions Sunday afternoon. Heading out Thursday morning for 5 days in Myrtle Beach. Meeting my Full-timing parents at Ocean Lakes. My brother is joining us too. Just a typical spur of the moment family reunion... We even lucked out and got adjoining sites.

Mine did that the first trip this year. I found it to be an air bubble in the propane line. Got everything re-bled and it seems to be running fine now.

That's great! We are sooo looking forward to being able to just look at each other, nod, and start packing. With the PUP, it's a lot of trouble to load, as have to almost completely set it up before we can get in to put anything in the 'fridge or pantry. We don't do spontaneous, and we don't go out for less than three nights. Our camping patterns will change once we get the TT. Love hearing about the fun others are having in the meantime!

We went into Houston to check on our unit and see what condition it was in after last night's bad storms in the area. Happy to say, it was in great shape with no discernible damage... I'm relieved since it's at a consignment place that has lots of foot traffic.

I have eliminated that as a problem. Sometimes it works, others not. Moving the wires around seems to fix it for a leg of the trip, next time its out.

Thanks for the suggestions.
