Got a new insurance policy for it. Since we leave our RV on a seasonal site all year we need stationary insurance. Like SmokerBill we had Foremost but switched to Progressive. Got a lot more coverage and saved $200.

Have a question though. This was more of a pain than I thought it should be ( never done it before ). The grease gun fitting kept wanting to come off the zerk ( is that what it's called? ) fitting. I had the gun fitting screwed down as tight as I could get it. I found it difficult to tighten the gun fitting because everything has grease on it. I shopped for a gun that had a quick release fitting like on an air compressor. But could not find such a thing. Maybe they don't exist. You folks that have done this many times, do you fight the same fight?

Thanks,

I have a Trailer Aid so I can suspend and rotate the tire as the grease is applied via the zerk. The most important thing is to add the grease slowly.

I found this fitting which might be what you are looking for.

Packed the TT for travel, filled four 5 gallon water jugs, got extra gas for the generator (and filled the truck), hooked up, drove up the hill to visit a friend for a couple hours, seeing all his pictures from the Peru trip he returned from yesterday, then drove less than 10 miles to the Bonney Lake Walmart parking lot, where I'm "camping" tonight.

I'll figure out another (hopefully better) place to set down tomorrow morning. Too tired to think now. I did spend some money here at Walmart- bought some veggies, and rented a couple of movies to watch tonight here in the parking lot. Got "Creed" and "The Heart of the Sea". Should keep me entertained until bedtime.

And for anyone interested, I asked the Assistant Manager what the overnighting policy was. Told me one night- technically 24 hours- was allowed.

Replaced all the 921 condescend lamps with LED's. Went from 3.4 amps to 0.35 Amps with all lights on. Hanging closets all done so coats etc. don't have to be folded anymore. Doors where easy to extend with the same material. Fixed some squeaky floor problems (Thank God for silicone). RV's are a "Never Ending Love".

SmokerBill, are you planning to enter Canada? You're welcome to stay in my yard.
I am still working on my TT and should be finished in a couple of weeks before we heading out again.

Thanks ALJO, but no plans to cross the border. I'm "home" here in WA, at least until fall arrives. Then it'll probably be back to AZ. By the way, how do you fix a squeaky floor with silicone? I have an area of floor that squeaks quite a bit, but I think a fresh water tank is directly below it.

Left Walmart this morning and ended up just east of Elbe, at the Nicholson - Sahara Creek Camp Area. Free camping for the price of a $35 Annual Discover Pass. Good deal!

Not so good... as soon as I got my TT positioned, the low tire pressure warning beeper went off (for my truck) front driver side tire had a leak. Got it changed out before I unhooked the TT. Drove 20 miles to Morton, WA to get the tire patched, but every shop employee gets off at either noon or 2PM on Saturdays, evidently so they can start drinking beer. Bought a plug-type patch kit at the local NAPA, but I'm not going to use it if I don't need to. Don't like the things.

I'll hang out here camping till Monday, then drive to Morton again and get the tire patched the right way- from the inside. On the plug kit directions, it clearly states that the plugs are only a temporary patch, and the tire must be patched correctly ASAP.

I will return the kit and get my $6 back if I can. That's good for 24 hours of generator run time!

Re-installed a trim piece on my slide that got knocked off last week when I forgot to close a cabinet door.

SmokerBill; First determine where the squeak is coming from. Sometimes it might be a screw. Because they are sparingly with screws fasting down cabinets and benches the floor might squeak because of it. In the screw hole I put some silicone and install the woodscrew. Luan board is soft and screws strip easy. I had two places one by a bench seat and one on my bedside. They are gone now. Cabinetmaker glue and silicone does wonders.

I have an enclosed underbelly to handle sub temps better, so where did I find the drain valves? Under the TT so they can freeze and crack. I am modifying things for the coming winter. Lots of insulation around the fenders and heat tape around the tanks and drain valves.

ALJO, my TT floor is 5/8" tongue and groove plywood covered with vinyl flooring. Any fix would have to be from underneath, because I wouldn't remove the vinyl just to fix a little noise. Could be one of the t/g joints sqeaking too, I guess. I can live with it, since it's in an area I rarely step on. Thanks for the xplansionionion.
