We picked up our Eagle from the factory repair facility. They fixed the stress crack we had near the bed slide and did some other repairs. The repair looks good and they did what they said they would do. We are pleased.

Taking mine to its storage lot this afternoon for the first time.

Thankfully it's only about 10 minutes from my house. Next major project is to make my back yard an option for storage.

Finished installing the Blue Ox Sway Pro last night in storage. Towing the "empty" trailer home from storage (short drive) showed VERY promising results. Definitely an improvement over the previous hitch.

That's great.

Replaced all compartment locks and swapped out bathroom entrance door lock so all locks on trailer are keyed alike.

Couldn't stand having 3 keys. Having a different key for bathroom and main entry door really drove me crazy.

My son was home sick from school yesterday, so I took the opportunity to do a little work in the trailer. With my son's "assistance" (he's almost 2, so I'm not sure "assistance" is the right word) I sealed the warm air return side of the AC from the cold air output with foil tape. I also examined the vents to see if they were leaking into the "attic" and what I could do to them to improve performance. Found some issues there, but I don't know how I will fix them yet... My son helped me retrieve a dropped screw while I was holding one of the vents against the ceiling, so he was of at least a little "assistance". LOL!

Installed a new paper towel bar under the cabinet in the kitchen. Used some double sided tape to mock up basement door latches so I don't go drilling unnecessary holes in the outside of my 5er. As well as measured out some wire closet shelving to add more storage to the bathroom. Used a hacksaw and decided the rest of that project could wait until I borrow a set of bolt cutters from my father, lol!

Last night I sealed off 2 of my 4 AC vents by removing the "sleeve" that connects the ceiling vent to the AC duct and sealed the gap with foil tape. So far a worthwhile endeavor; flow is already better. And I made another batch of ice.

Tonight the real work ensues. Gotta go grocery shopping, fill FW tank, top off tire air pressure, pack my stuff, pack the food/sundries, and hook up the truck to the trailer for a faster getaway! I'm sure there are more chores that will need doing ... It's going to be a late night tonight ...

Just curious. How long to get an appointment and how long did they have it?
