If you're asking about the Jayco Factory we discovered the crack in early April and the first available appointment was Aug. 8. They had it two weeks.

I spent the last couple of days doing some badly needed "Fall Cleaning"! I cleaned the roof, got the mold and mildew off the awning (50-50 bleach/water solution with the help of magic eraser for stubborn stains), and washed and "waxed" with Turtle Wax Zip wash. I was very happy with zip wax and the finish looks great. Saved me a step of actually waxing it, considering our triple digit heat index, I'm very pleased.

Next day I concentrated on the inside, washing down the wood work, sweeping and cleaning the floor, washing the windows in and out, and vacuumed and spot cleaned the upholstery. Also painted some rust area on the bumper with rustoleum. Man was I pooped when it was done. Phew, I'm "tarred" (that's tired for you northerners). But man it does look good!

I have been looking at possibly trading in our X23B, but now, I just may keep her!

Nothing glamorous. Installed a Marinco 701 battery disconnect switch. https://www.amazon.com/Marinco-701-B.../dp/B005DUUL9W

I've got to say, it's a nice enhancement. Beats opening the battery box and disconnecting cables every time we store the trailer. Just flip the switch and walk away.

IMO, these are the types of things that RV manufacturers should include, even on fairly basic models. I've installed BAL lock-arm stabilizers, added vent covers and a decent bathroom fan, installed a digital thermostat, put gel filters in all of our LED lights to warm them up, installed towel rods and rings in the bathroom, put a dimmer switch on our bedroom reading lights so DW and I aren't blinded at night, and I'm about to install a water pump silencing kit. I'd have happily paid $400-$500 more on a $25K trailer not to have to do these types of things. They seem to try and cut corners where it simply isn't necessary.

Getting the trailer ready for our 2nd trip in it next weekend...cut up some 2x's to use as levelers under the tires and pads for under the jacks, made a storage box for them that can be flipped and double as a step under the entry stairs, cut up a 4x and started making a set of X chocks, and ordered a dish strainer to dry those dishes after being washed. It's been a productive morning! Lol

Re-reading it, that totally reminds me of the Red Ryder BB gun scene in 'A Christmas Story'

I can hardly say it once lol.

Trying some Gorilla Construction Adhesive to reattach loose wood molding and trim pieces--hopefully it will hold through the summer heat while in storage.

Yesterday, towed it home after our trip. Where we were was on a "boil water" notice, and we didn't have QUITE enough water on board to make it through the weekend. We always pack drinking water separate (we refill a 5 gal jug with RO water), and we always haul about 35 gallons in the tank for "incidentals". So we had to connect up to city water for showers and toilets. Lesson learned: bring more water in the tanks for JUST this type of situation.

So added to the chore list was to sanitize the lines. Probably not strictly necessary, but better safe than sorry. So we did that last night and began cleaning out the trailer. We still have quite a lot of cleaning to do. And still have some AC work, and washing the outside to do this week before we put her back in storage.
