Thanks for the info!

No, we haven't been, that would be an epic journey for us; two days driving and we have an infant, so that makes it even more difficult. I just saw the place when I was goofing around on Google Maps and thought it looked like a nice place to visit. Glad you had a nice time!

On topic; got a note from my dealer last night, they have my new power tongue jack. Need to go get the trailer out of storage Thursday night so I can do the swap this weekend! Going to tidy up the wiring up front while I'm at it. Why do they not use waterproof wire nuts up there?

Just ordered 4 new electric brake assemblies and grease seals for my 26BH. Only $130.78 total at eTrailer.com. I decided to go with manual adjustable brakes, since self-adjusting cost $15 more each, and to me it's worth the hassle of adjusting by hand to save $60 bucks. I'll pick up a couple tubes of grease at Walmart and I'll be all set.

I will clean up and save the best R/L pair of the old brake assemblies and keep them in my TT, just in case one of the new ones decides to self destruct while on the road.

I decided to cancel the order for the grease seals, and instead I am getting 4 bearing kits that included inner/outer bearings and races, seals, D-washer and cotter pin. A bargain at $11.98 per kit.

I figure that since the brake assemblies will be new, might as well go whole hog and replace all the bearings, too.

3 weeks later still going back and forth with Jayco service and Camping World service. Electrical issues traced to a 50 amp fuse blown and now Jayco says it should be 80 amp fuse. Not a circuit breaker a fuse!
The front landing gear shaft broke completely off and now waiting for replacement that never got ordered.
Also putting replacement transfer switch for the 3 time......

Added a door grab handle

I picked this up at CW. It was an easy install.

Tired of using a flashlight to see what's hiding in the pantry, I wired up some 12v led pucks and a micro switch so they automatically turn on and off when you open the door. The DW has a tendency to leave the rocker switch the lights came with in the "on" position as I found out today even though we haven't been on the trailer for days. Glad it's hooked up to shore power at the moment!

Did you do a write up on this? If not, could you put one up? I want to do something similar and am looking for ideas. I'm interested in what you used for 12V source.

On topic: brought home the trailer from storage and removed the jack for replacement under warranty. Found water in the jack head (source of the problem; hasn't rained in weeks) and corrosion all over all the electrical connections. Will repair/upgrade this weekend and post in tech forum with pics...

Rolling up the Mastercraft mattress and foam topper for storage. We ordered a Sleep Number Premier RV king and hope will not go with the camper if and when it's sold.
