Scrapped all the rust from the frame (all I could reach anyway), scuffed with scotch-brite, and applied a coat of rustoleum. If the rust comes back, its being scheduled for warranty. It should not be this bad after only a year and I don't live in a salty state.

Took off the JT Strong arm stabilizers, added X-choks to limit weight. We will see if it makes any difference, if not I know what I will be doing next weekend.

""Little Can;Not so much today, but over the last several weeks after getting new trailer I Installed holder case for my "Equalizer" bars when not in use""

That's a great idea for storing the bars! Did you make the case yourself or purchase it? I looked on the Equalizer web site and couldn't locate any thing like it. Just curious. TIA

I finally flushed the antifreeze from the water pipes, sanitized the water tank, hooked up the propane and tested the water heater.

Scrubbed the dirt off of the roof with Dawn dish detergent, then washed the sides, front and back with Maguire's one step wash and wax. It's been a year or two since my home's been pampered like this.

I hate to post this, but blew the water lines out because it was suppose to get below freezing last night!!! This is garbage!!! Lol

Also bought a set of side shelves for our Camp Chef Explorer 2 burner stove.

Removed my wife's big bag chair from the tt. She hadn't used it at all last year, so it was time to remove it.

Limit weight? Does that mean a new tv may be in the driveway???

Good luck if so.

John,

Glad to hear everyone was ok!!!!

Do you use regular wheel chocks also in addition to the X-chocks? If not, consider doing so. I remember reading the X-chocks "destructions" (I actually did! Lol) and they state the X-chocks shouldn't be used in place of regular wheel chocks. And not to raise or lower the rig with them installed as it can damage them.

Said "Hi" to it, as I drove past on the way to work. Only 36 degrees here this AM. Still waiting for a warm day to replace the skylight!

Yesterday, I assembled and tested my DirecTV tailgater dish for the Redhawk. Then, waxed and polished the entire exterior of the MH. Rain is forecasted for 3 of the next 4 days, so best get that done while I could.

Bill, What is the maximum pressure your Maxxis tires and rims are rated at? What load range are they? Why 66# and finally, are they 15" tires?

I'm just trying to sponge it all in.

I like to watch the weight capacities. The JT stabilizers weigh in around 42 pounds, the X-chocks are about 15 pounds which are supposed to equate the same result based on my research.

Funny you ask about a tv, I did install a new tv including articulating arm and DVD player (about 10-12 pounds).

Yesterday, I replaced all the exterior marker light bulbs with LED.
