Still prepping for my brake system replacement. Today I decided on the grease I'll be using - Mobil 1 Synthetic. It's in the Dexter "Approved" list, and it has a reputation for being long lasting. I bought 1 tube for the 4 hubs. It doesn't really take that much grease.

Sorted through my new bearings, and found that 2 of them were destroyed by shipping mishaps. Dang the luck. The cages got bent when the new brake drums slammed into them, in a UPS warehouse somewhere, probably.

I'll have to call eTrailer tomorrow and get them replaced. Their customer service so far has been great, but problems like this can be a little discouraging.

winterized the lines leaving the camp today, cleaned out all the foodstuffs, clothes, freezable stuff and parked it for the winter. Now it's time to be sad and count the days until spring.

Replaced the old, dilapidated (and original) foam seal on the screen door. Then removed the grille on the A/C return to clean the filter, but all that was there was a hole where it used to be. Seems that the filter (also the original) material became brittle over time. broke apart and was sucked up into the air return. I pulled out the loose larger pieces, but some were against the evaporator fins. The shop-vac got the job of removing them.

Now, I have to find a replacement filter somewhere.

Pulled it home from storage, got the fridge and A/C running, topped off the air pressure in the tires, made a whole bucket of ice already! Tonight (hopefully) will be lubricating the stab jacks, and tending to the slide-out seal. That's assuming I can get the lawn mowed; days are getting shorter, makes outside chores more difficult to do after my boy goes to bed. But it also means Fall and Winter are getting closer

Tried the Camco black streak remover and washed it today. Will work on waxing it off and on the rest of the week so it's ready to head south to Utah next week. Have a few days on one of the RV pads at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary overlooking Angel Canyon. Doing a little volunteer work while we are there as well...

Lubed the stab jacks and the power awning, installed a couple braces for the "kid gate" in the bottom bunk, broke out my new clip-on fan and tested it in the bottom bunk (it gets really stuffy down there, fan helps, but not as dramatic as I'd hoped), flipped the WH valves to the normal position from "winterized" position. New water filters were sitting on the porch when I got home, so tonight I gotta pack and get the trailer "wet" (rinse and fill the water lines and tanks) and hook it all up to the truck. I'll see if I can clean the stove too, if not it'll be done "in the field". Got a roll of Reflectix I'll be working on in the field as well; hoping my sticky Vel-Cro does the job I need it to do...

spent yesterday and today communicating with Jayco and Camping World service on our 4212. It is now 4 weeks ++++. Can you believe that we are still waiting on parts? Did I till you that Jayco says " it is a vendor part and we have no control!". OK , I bought a Transfer switch on Amazon.com at half price to be able to go in July? Then we got the replacement 5 weeks later, this is the 3 rd one that has been replaced. Now we have been waiting on Lippert Ground Control 2.0 parts for weeks. Found out yesterday everything is backordered for 9/14 ship date? Called Lippert today and was told they have all the parts in stock for retail sale. Jayco says we have no control over Vendor parts and are at Lippert's Mercy? What was interesting the gal said "we have 25 of those leveling motors in stock because Jayco F/W always need them". Nice!
Our Saga continues.................
