Had to grab some chairs out of the trailer for another "event", so I did a quick storage check while I was there. All is well. The birds have moved on/out, so I don't need to worry about evicting them... Next weekend, she's coming home for pre-check and seasonal maintenance!

Today I am going to lube all the slideout gaskets and do some general cleaning under and around the outside.

Brought home from storage, added 2" latex mattress topper, flushed water lines, tightened bathroom sink water connections, tried out external water filter and pressure regulator, walked the roof, & watched Mater's Tall Tales.

No worries

Honestly it's not to terrible.
We are on Camp Pendleton in CA at Del Mar Beach. The sand is easily cleaned up with out little hand held vac. Great investment. The outdoor shower is extremely helpful too lol.

And I was happy to serve. Would still be doing it if I could.

Hey my boys were just there this weekend doing a service project for the Marines with our Boy Scout troop!

We live about 30 min away. We camped there once with the troop in tents on beach. It was amazing! Would love to take our trailer there but I think you need connections to reserve if you're not military don't you?

Yes I believe you need to be retired, active or have a service connected disability of 100%. There may be a certain percentage of slots available for civilian population but I haven't checked on that.

Good to see the scouts get involved with things in base. I know as a Marine myself it was always motivating to see the younger kids get all fired up when in base.

We went with Plan B for the glassware storage, which is in the bottom of the cabinet under the TV, in our2016 23MRB. We added a shelf, and used 3" cushion foam carved out for the individual glasses and mugs, and then covered the foam in black fleece. It's not terribly elegant, but it will keep the glassware safe without us having to wrap each piece separately. (There's also room for a couple of shot glasses. A green one is visible at the far right on the bottom.)

The pushpinned-on red thing will go away; it was there as part of a different configuration.

After your suggestion I did look around for some specs on ceramic filters. While the prices are a bit steep, the fact that they can be cleaned and reused 25-30 times makes the initial price very reasonable. The problem I see with all I found was the flow rate. 1-1.5 gallons/minute just isn't enough for me. I know good filtration can't be rushed, but I'm doing well with what I am using, I just have to watch for leak repair in with the parks water system and not use shore water for a few days after a repair to allow others to purge the lines. I always run my hose on the ground for 30-40 minutes before hooking back up also. I am on the end of the line.
