Picking up from the shop. Had a SealTech test done and they found a handful of minor leaks. Always good to put her away for the winter knowing that she's watertight. Also had the bearing/brake maintenance done, and, what the heck, they had a special on winterizing, so I had them do that too. First time in years I haven't done my own, although I will probably splash some AF into the traps or anywhere else I think they might have missed...

Just received a new switch for the power cord reel. The original one never worked, it was intermittent and most of the time I had to reel up by hand. I could have replaced in under warranty but the fuel required to bring it to the dealer was not worth the price of the switch so I purchased it from Jayco through the dealer and will install it as soon as I have a day without a hurricane.

Washed, cleaned, and winterized after spending last week at Wellesley Island State Park in upstate New York...beautiful. Also repaired one of the bedroom sliding doors, which was binding and driving DW crazy.

Tomorrow it'll be covered and we'll see her again next spring!

I finished cutting up my old RVQuick Shade from the front windshield of our former motorhome to put behind the pleated shades in the living room/dining section of the camper. It works just like a day solar shade when the pleated blinds are up and cuts down on the heat. I order another smaller one to finish the project.

My Dimplex electric fireplace quit heating this morning after heating fine for a few minutes. It did this 3-4 years ago sooooo.....I unplugged it, removed it from the cabinet, took the top off to expose the heating unit. I then removed the heating unit and took it outside and blew it out with compressed air as well as vacuum out the inside of the air ducts. It now works fine again and is all ready for winter.

There is a great doc on the Dimplex web site on how to do it which I d/l the last time. It is not complicated or hard, but it does help to know what to expect vs just jumping in and taking out screws. The only tool was a #2 phillips screw driver and a cup of coffee.
