Completed my spring cleaning chore. Ceilings, walls, cabinets, floors, fridge, stove and bathroom have all been scrubbed clean with Pine Sol. Smells nice and fresh in my TT now. Only thing left is to organize a couple of cabinets, and then it's on to the next project- whatever it may be.

This morning I made an attempt to fix the broken crank handle that raises/lowers my Winegard TV antenna. It split apart on me recently. I mixed up some Gorilla epoxy this morning, smeared it where needed and clamped it together with a rubber band. I'll give it until tomorrow to cure before I try clamping it onto the hex shaft. Hope it works. Even though a new one costs only $6 or so, the glue is already paid for. Don't spend it if you don't really have to. That's my motto.

I talked to the GM today at the dealership where we purchased our 377, as they've had our 5er since March 28th! All has been fixed or replaced with the exception of the residential fridge, microwave and one of the black-out shades. I was told that the microwave was shipped on Wednesday of this week. They are still waiting on Jayco for the residential fridge and the black-out shade. I'm told that they are waiting on Jayco to place a large order for residential refrigerators and ours will be added to the order. The blackout shade has been ordered with Jayco, but Jayco is waiting on the manufacture to make and ship to them.

I was skeptical of the dealership, due to previous lies....so I called Jayco with the order numbers and they confirmed what I was told by the dealership.

So the dilemma is...do I go pick up the 5er or leave it at the dealership until ALL has been fixed?? I'm out of town next week for work, so they will need to keep it at least that long, and we have no plans/reservations for Memorial Day weekend!

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 made it from a vinyl fence gate kit. I used one side of the gate ends, cut it to size, glued and screwed one of the caps in place, and the other cap I put a through bolt and hand wheel nut to hold it in place. I then made a hook to get the bars out, since the post fits them almost perfectly. The bars are only in there when in storage at home, or when camping. Keeps the grease & dirt out of my truck.

Here is a link for the gate kit at Home Depot

Installed a Bayite 100A battery/energy monitor. It so far seems to work well. Parasite draw on battery is 0.06Amp. Not a lot for the stereo lights and CO/LP detector. I am curious to see how many amp/hrs we use in a day of boondocking.
Happy Camping

I removed my crank up Winegard antenna in favor of the one in this picture. I never ever used it (Tripod and DirecTV HD) and it leaked through the antenna dripping off of the handle a time or two. Soooooo, the problem went away when I had my new roof installed. I don't know how well this one works and really don't care. It does not leak that I know.

I would make sure that the batteries are disconnected if the rig is sitting with no power else your batteries will be permanently damaged from being discharged.

We just returned from a 1 week trip and I worked on fixing a short list of small items. Drying rack needed repairs, brush handle broken, ....etc.
Today my LED bulbs for the inside lighting are scheduled to arrive.

Luckily I pulled the battery disconnect when I dropped it off. I'm still concerned that the batteries will be damaged, as I have always kept my batteries on a battery tender while in storage...hopefully all will work out, and hopefully soon!

I recently learned that long term use of battery cut off switches as well as long term battery disconnections create a problem in itself by not allowing electrons to flow through the battery(s) resulting in eventual cell damage. Granted, such damage is far less than total draw down for long periods so, I think it is important to always be connected to a battery tender if possible and if not, a small solar trickle charge would be sufficient and connected at all times. I also think it may be wise to be sure the battery(s) are fully charged upon long storage or periods or long waits at dealer's lots. IMO, the battery cut-off switches should only be used for electrical repairs/upgrades or short term needs of total power cut-off. I'm not sure if the above specifics apply to the dry AGM type batteries or not but, this may be a good topic to look into for the good of all.
