Well, camping and the Jayco are on hold for a month or so. We placed an offer on a house and it was accepted. So, we are schedule to close Aug 24th. Once the move is over, then we will get back out on the road camping... I will be installing a 50 amp RV service outlet on the side of the new house.

Used some self-tapping wood screws to repair the bottom of the cupboard above and to side of the bed. The staples started pulling out on the trip last weekend and the bottom was falling down on one side allowing the contents to start sliding out.

Added a set of JT Strong Arms to the landing gear. Haven't figured out how to mount the rear bars - we have the automatic leveling system and there's no clean way to add them.

Used some construction adhesive and a 16 ga. trim gun to attach and reattach trim that had come loose in a bunch of places, particularly on the bottom lip of the overhead cabinets, throughout the unit. Some had a couple of construction staples, but the original staple gum must have been set to fire too deep, and they were almost all the way through.... Some didn't have any staples, and must have been just held in place with friction! I figure that the adhesive and the trim pins will hold them better!

Join the club of Jayco owners who have a set of the rear JT Strong Arms still in the box, in the garage..... The GOOD news is that the front JT's, along with the 6-point system, seem to hold the units very tight!

Got it organized and hooked up and hit the road. I'm no longer a campground host, until maybe next year. I've driven 40 miles (I-5 through Tacoma and Olympia) and stopped at the first rest stop. That stretch of highway stresses me out quite a bit because of the multiple lanes and everyone going 70 in the 60 mph zone. Going to pull it to the Walmart in Chehalis and spend the night there. I just thought of a few things I needed to buy...

The DW has a knack for recycling otherwise useless items - in this case a pair of the twist & fold windshield covers from a car we no longer have. Now we have some custom-made sun screens for the side windows on our 195RB. After our last trip to the south west we decided having something like this was a good idea, especially for the longer travel days. These attach with little velcro patches and I can already tell that the trailer a noticeably cooler today having them in place.
