Cleaned roof, washed sides and waxed front cap.

Enlarged and added drain holes in the bottom of the bike rack.

Brought it home on Friday, de-winterized (even though I ended up getting into heated storage this winter).

Sanitized the water lines with water/bleach over night.

Today emptied the fresh water tank, filled with fresh water and rinsed out all the lines.

I guess the awning was damp when I put the trailer away last year, so had mildew and awful smell. Bought a bottle of Thetford awing cleaner and cleaned the top and underside of the awning. Looks and smells new!

Used Thetford black streak remover on a few spots around the trailer.

The caulking by the edge of the tub surround let go during the season last year, so today I removed the old caulking and re-caulked.

This week I will install battery disconnect.

Next weekend is the long weekend here in Canada. Heading out for 3 nights!

I just unhooked my 150 gallon external propane tank and hooked up the internal tanks again in preparation for moving to Panama City, FL for the summer. I know I'm supposed to go north in the summer, but I have been known to do some things backwards.

I permanently mounted my DirecTV Slimline dish last fall at my home base and this morning I set up a new Slimline dish on my tripod. The new Slimline dishes are lighter than the older ones. Every pound counts I guess.

My black tank tote has now been removed from storage and is sitting out ready to be loaded. I did flush it real good to make sure nothing was missed last fall when I cleaned it. It smells better right now than it will in a couple of weeks.

Now I think it is lunch time.

Installed a new Camco folding stove top cover that the DW wanted for more counter space.

unboxed and stored all the basics we bought (hoses, toiletpaper, adapters) and started to prepare for our first weekend in the new TT next weekend!

Started building a whole new trailer tongue mounted bike rack. I have seen several people do this, but never a bracket like I have in mind. Challenge was to fit it inbetween the propane tanks and batteries, still have access to both, and have it low enough so that I could lower the front bunk without removing the bike rack. So far so good, look for pics in the Mod's section in a week or so.

I think you have the best plan Rob. Move every 2-3 weeks. I have been here at my home base for entirely too long and everything that was in the basement has "spread out". Moving more frequently won't allow this "stuff" to get so unorganized, but it is all in there now and ready to travel. The only thing left to stow is my power cable (plenty of room) and my water hose (plenty of room).

Whew! Now all I need to do it air up all 8 tires and install my TPMS sensors. Then Wednesday morning first thing I'm headed south for 4 months.

I checked my battery level yesterday also. I have two Trojan T105's and I check the water level every spring and fall. So far they have never required more than just a very little bit of water. I would check them more often, but it hasn't been necessary. They are 2 1/2 years old now and used full time.

Today is clean up and organize the inside for travel tomorrow.
