Monday, I picked up the pop up from it's first trip, in a steady rain. After a weekend filled with rain, the grass site was a bit soft. I got my truck stuck trying to get lined up to the camper. I was finally able to get close enough to lift and push the tongue just enough to reach the ball. Driving up a very slight, grassy incline to leave was not going to happen. Even though I told my son not to stand behind the truck to push, he did anyway and got sprayed with mud. He said he would be able to laugh about it some day and have a good story to tell his kids. I had to back out through the empty site behind me. Other stuck campers had the CG workers pull them out with a tractor.

He's 14 and we were both wetter than fish and frustrated at trying to close up a wet camper. Getting stuck added to the frustration of not being able to get lined up easily. It has been 35 years since I pulled a trailer and it was his first time as my backing up guide. He wasn't happy about getting muddy until we were about a mile away from the campground.

What Did You Do To Your Jayco TODAY?

Cleaned out the AC filter and removed the interior plastic cover to check on the thermostat wiring and looked at the infamous AC bolts to see if they're loose. They were tight and without issue. Found out I have the 15k BTU unit instead of the 13k I thought I had. Bonus!

Put magnetic covers over my new metal floor registers to keep out dust and dirt.

Using a roll of insulated foil to make interior window covers for blocking the sun. We are headed for 101+ camping Wednesday so hoping these help the AC not have to work so hard. Will use small squares of Velcro on the frames to hold in place behind the shades.
