Not raining at the moment, but it was this morning.

I agree!

I just installed the colored LED strip on our awning.

BAL Lock Arm Stabilizers are worth every penny

Knocked out a few things today. First, I added Ruggids step covers to all six steps on our bunkhouse (both entries), then I installed towel rods in the bathroom in place of the cheesy, non-functional hooks, and my favorite mod of the day was installing four BAL Lock-arm stabilizers to our power stab jacks, front and rear. Coupled with x-chocks between the tires, these make a huge difference to the stability of the entire rig! Feels like it's sitting on a house foundation rather than stabilizer jacks. I strongly recommend these!

Ordered a new city water connection (check valve in the old one was leaking) and a new stove vent assembly for the outside of the TT. Once latch has broken off the vent, the other is very loose and doesn't hold on the road. I'm afraid I'll park it after a trip and find that the little door has blown off.

Replaced both incoming water filters. Particulate matter is much worse this summer in this park than in past years, but replacement filter cartridges is well worth it for me.

Jayco since buying our first one in 1989. we're still active riding our Harley TG, kaying, and mountain biking...still enjoying the life of living!

Last weekend I ordered the Norcold fridge door hinge upgrade and it arrived today. Took about 5 m8nutes to install it. (Used the right hand hinge). Had thought about ordering a kit for our Northern Lite Camper as well. Turns out the Camper has a left hand door swing so I was able to do the frig on that too. I am a happy camper!!
Happy Camping

I'm 3/4 done towing it for the day. Started at Cape Disappointment State Park, and now I'm at the northbound Toutle River rest area. In a bit I'll continue on up to the Scatter Creek Rest Area and spend the night there.

My Jayco is towing like crap with the new LT tires I got on my truck. I've tried higher pressures (recommended by some), and just dropped the pressures down. If it doesn't tow well, I'm going to take Discount Tire up on their offer to take back any tire for any reason, and if they take them, just go back to the "P" rated tires. The first two sets towed my TT beautifully. Why in the heck did I "upgrade"?!!!
