Went ride by the storage unit and gave our camper a good look-over to make sure she is enjoying her home while we are working.
Filled up the soap dispenser all the way - previously filled it 1/4 after camping friend had one that leaked on him...no leaks!!
Also, loaded the new tent in the storage area and ordered some new chairs. Still looking forward to our maiden voyage next month!!!

The first part of this post is somewhat related to my Jayco. I put new tires on my TV today so I'm now ready for the trip to Florida in 4 weeks for my summer host position.

This part of the post is directly related to my Jayco. I ordered 4 new tires to replace the original Marathon tires. My dealer originally found 4 G614's with a manufacturing date of 0413. This is good enough, but by the time he actually tried to order them they were gone. The good news is I now have 4 coming direct from Good Year that might actually still be warm.

I will feel much more comfortable driving south on 8 new tires.

De-winterize!!!!
the waterflow was just a dribble from the kitchen tap but it was replaced under warranty since it was cracked and leaking last summer. All other taps worked fine so I unscrewed the screen and I found some debris in the back of it. All better now.

We were blessed with good weather...while it got below freezing at night our tank heater did its job. All good. Days in NYC were almost perfect spring day :-)

Has anyone installed a wall mount for small tv in a Jay Flight Swift SLX 154/165/184? The wall board is very thin on both sides with nothing in between. I thought maybe mounting a backing board on one or both sides of the wall to distribute the weight. We currently just pack the tv during travel and set it on the shelf.
Thanks,

I snowblowed away the 20+ inches of snow in the driveway to make a spot to put the trailer when I bring it home from storage next weekend. I hope this snow ends soon!

we are "de- winterizing" this weekend and using it to backyard camp. We are all packed, except food and are heading out for the first time in our brand new trailer in 20 days. I am so tempted to go someplace before that but maybe the backyard camping will scratch the itch.
