I have built a bicycle carrier/ cargo rack for the rear of the trailer. I now need to get a 3 foot peice of 2" reciever stock and weld it to the frame. i bought a cargo rack on sale for 39.00 and some bicycle mod kits from a local automovtive store then I got out the angle grinder and started a few modifications. I will post a pic once I have completed this project.

Saturday we check on our new 17Z which is currently stored inside a heated storage facility. Can't wait to get her out of storage next month. Sunday we went to our Seasonal Site and checked on our 308 RETS. We had a minor mouse problem a few months ago, but so far so good! No signs of any critters (fingers crossed).

Had a chance to chat with the campground owners and catch up with them for a bit.

All in All - We are getting excited to start the camping season. 4 Trips already planned and paid for with the 17Z and the seasonal site looks great. Should be a great summer!

This past weekend, I bought a new air compressor to handle the 80 PSI in the tires, and I bought everything I needed to wash/treat the roof. Didn't get around to it, but I'll hopefully get it done tonight. Also, in the plans are to wash and wax the whole rig.

Question for all you gelcoat vets... I have a 36REQS with full paint, and it looks like it's going to take me 17.5 years to hand wax this beast. Is there a favorite wax or technique you like to use. Should I wax the sides of the slideouts? I won't use a rotary tool because I fear of burning the coat and/or paint. Any help would be appreciated.

I also installed some sticky hooks in the shower for each of my girls' bath scrubbies to hang on. And I bought some local fake flowers to drape over the bedroom slide and in the wine rack. I will post pics soon.

Today I removed and cleaned the burner tubes on the range and the water heater, then adjusted the vent tube on the water heater burner to get a nice, blue flame. Also dropped the awning and dried it to remove the rain water from yesterday's shower to prevent mildew growth. Also doing battery maintenance today, running my charger on equalize mode to stir the electrolyte up.

I made a cup of coffee and took a shower. I haven't opened the door or even turned on the tv yet.
