And pumped the tires up to 70 psi. I'll check them tomorrow morning when cold, and make sure they're all at 65 psi, which is max pressure on my new Maxxis 8 ply load range D tires. I like my new tires!

However...

I realized that my truck brakes were in worse shape than I thought. Lots of pulsing from one or two warped rotors. Bought a pair of high quality new rotors and 4 ceramic/metallic brake pads. Tomorrows project. It never ends, it seems.
Another "Nice Job" is sounds like. Enjoy your next trip. I'm sure you will be much more relaxed with all of the new stuff between your rig and the ground.

I just pulled my slides in, turned off the water heater and incoming water, set the a/c's a couple of degrees warmer and am heading to my sisters for 4 days. One day after I get back I leave for 5 days at Road Atlanta for the 2016 Petit le Mans. Anyone else going to be there? Free coffee for Jayco owners at my site.

Purchased a 28" LED TV/DVD combo and a new Oxygenics shower head for my 2015 267 BHSW. I will be installing this weekend.

Loaded it with $100.00 worth of groceries. Put away the freshly laundered towels and bath mat. Swept it out and cleaned the stove.


1 Day, 0 hours, 46 minutes, 36.040001 seconds until departure for the FOTA weekend!

Sold it! That didn't take long. And I got more than I needed. Now I got some money burning a hole in my pocket. Tomorrow I start looking hard for the next one. Then Friday I'm going camping in my current one. Lady doesn't want it til Monday so we get one more scuba diving adventure this weekend in it. Off to Lake Rawlings, Va one last time in this one.

Unloaded it, cleaned it out good and washed the outside after 10 days on the road in the Southwest. Now I know why I put that coat of wax on it before heading out - the bugs on the front came off like they were greased... Then towed it to the dealer to get one of the LED fixtures replaced and a couple other minor issues looked at.....

New Television

Today I upgraded my 22" TV to a 28" TV. The entertainment center limited me on size. A 32" was too big. I used a MORryde TV stand I bought at the Hershey RV show. It's amazing the difference in screen size.

Unhooked the sewer hose and the water hose and packed them away. Took a few more things to my storage unit. Tomorrow morning I arrange everything in the TT for travel, load up a few things in the bed of the truck, hook up to the hitch and hit the road!

Sad day because we said goodbye to our White Hawk BUT, we also got the VIN and build date of our new Eagle We should get her late-October/early-November, so probably won't use her this year, but spring is coming...
