Replacing the standard tail lights with Bargeman LED lights for a lot more visibility. Then swapping all the standard marker lights with led marker lights just to make it look nicer. With a 5000 mile trip planned this summer, I want high visibility to be a priority at night.

Last week was busy with continuing to clean & prep for the first trip of the season. Took me 3 days to clean/polish/wax the GH 31SS, clean the awning and check things out in general, then started gathering up all the stuff that had been removed for winter storage. Yesterday I loaded up my clothes and Roxy's stuff (our boxer), made sure the fridge was still working, and gave the DW a short lesson on driving the monster. Well, she moved the monster out of in front of the garage door so we could park her car inside due to possible storms moving thru overnight, and then moved it back so I could plug the unit up to cool the fridge off some more. Leaving this morning for a few days near the GSMNP.

Brought it home from storage last night. Replaced the bent outer link plates for the spring bar perches with better designed ones, flipped the valves out of "winter" position and rinsed HWH, turned on fridge to get it cooled down, replaced one bank of cabin lights with new LED (best one so far of all the ones I've tried), Ran the awning out so it would dry (we've had A LOT of rain lately), black tank was a little smelly so I put some orange stuff down there (will fill up the tank a bit before my trip so it sloshes around some), checked tire pressure (still haven't lost a single PSI).

Got a lot more planned for this week including new screen door handle, digital thermostat, and a bunch of other stuff I can't remember...

Today we used a hole saw drill bit to make a 1 3/4" hole on the entertainment center and applied a plastic grommet. Then we threaded our satellite receiver cords through it. Removed the radio/DVD player until we got everything squared away and then put it back. Didn't want to drill a hole in the radio. Now it's not messy looking with cords dangling all over. This was our first permanent modification.

Installed new digital thermostat (easy wire-for-wire swap), function tested, all good.

Installed cross-bar on screen door. Easy install, and now I can get the door closed from inside without leaning WAY out the trailer.

Went back to 5 washers on the WDH. We'll see how she tows on Thursday.

Bled the air out of the propane lines.

Began making ice for the trip!

Washed and waxed about two-thirds before going camping. Installed the under sink quick disconnect water filter.

Finally got all of the outside storage compartments loaded with the usual outside storage stuff. Had to buy new plastic totes to fit the spaces. Problem with buying an ultra lite trailer is the lack of space. On the bright side, eliminated a lot of unnecessary stuff!
