Can you post a link to your dimmer?

Thanks for the link. I'm off to HD in the AM for the vinyl tiles to do the back splash (DW saw the posts here)

Tomorrow's destination- my (part-time) home, WA state. Probably end up in Kennewick, but might go on to Yakima. I know of a few free camping spots along the river on HWY 12, to the east of White Pass.
We were through Salt Lake City last fall and I agree with you. We stayed at a nice Utah State campground just north of Ogden - Willard Bay.

Very close to passing you in the opposite direction - started loading the trailer today for what we call the "mad dash" - 2 days from Seattle to Lake Mead. We stop half-way at Three Island Crossing State park just east of Mountain Home, ID. With regular breaks along the way it's about 11 hours per day which for the occasional "let's just get there" trip isn't bad.

It is the first day of the month and as usual my generator is running for it's monthly hour. During this period I'm running a load of laundry (partial run since the Splendide takes longer than an hour), drinking coffee, watching TV and enjoying the power from the Onan. 333.4 hours and counting.

Dropped it off at the dealer to have the off-door slide repaired. Slide worked fine several times, but started binding up last weekend. Opened it back up to re-synch the motors, but then it wouldn't move again at all. Ended up having to pull the motors and close manually - hope I never have to do that again, that sucker is heavy - to get it to the dealer.

I remember passing by the Three Island Crossing State park sign on my drive yesterday. Ended up making it to Yakima yesterday by 4PM (gained an hour passing into the Pacific Time Zone). Bought a WA State Discover Pass, filled the fresh water tanks, and found a spot to camp on HWY 12, on the Tieton River. I was able to park so that the trailer is perfectly level without unhooking from the truck. Not sure how long I'll be here, but when it's time to go, I'm ready.

Ordered a TST 507 repeater for my TPMS. I occasionally lose signals.

Lubracated every hinge in and around the TT and all the window cranks and side arms plus the 4 jacks and slide out rails and fold out steps. Too bad I can't lube my joints and get the same results.

Completed the FIRST mod on our new 377RLBH today, by adding a second spare to the rear bumper. Over the years, I've had three trailer blow-outs, and two of them took out both tires on one side. I now travel with two trailer spares; the factory spare underneath, and the extra one on a rear bumper bracket.
