What finally made me defrost my freezer Rob, was the frost buildup was keeping my ice trays from fitting. The door would hit them as it closed. Definitely was time to defrost. Even with the frost so thick the freezer worked perfectly. I'm sure it is working better now (smile).

At the same time I defrosted, I removed the drip pan from the refrigerator section and washed it off. It always looks a bit cruddy after collecting drips from the coils.

New electrical plug housing - just use plumbers putty around on the inside and tighten. No silicone :-)
The little mess you see around the top is Silicone from PO. Have to take putty knife and scrap off.

Emptied the litter box, vacuumed the interior, then washed it and waxed the Alcoa wheels.

Winterized the trailer And put away in storage.....didn't get much camping in this year, but next year will be better because we decided to go seasonal. Anyone have any pros and cons about getting a seasonal Site?

Yesterday, I ended 3 consecutive weekends of camping at a Yogi Bear campground. The site was uneven and required a lot of work to level the pup, which ended with the door not closing easily. There were no other issues with the pup even after being left up for 2 1/2 weeks. Now that it's back home, on flat ground, the door works fine again.

Patiently waiting on my dealer to call to see what they are going to do about the floor.

Busy last week-end

Installed LED light strip on awning ($22.00 on ebay, Priority mail included!), had to cut from 16 down to 9ft, but they should still add some "pop" at night.
Added a back-up camera which may/may not help backing into enclosed storage compartment.
Installed LED lights. Some were "less fluorescent" than others. While not as bright as the standard 12V bulbs, they only required 1/3 of the power.
Got a ramp for my small dogs.

Also replaced the dealer provided cheap sewage hose with a Rhino kit, purchased memory foam for bunks & main bed, drained the water heater and tested the power consumption with a watt meter.

Still getting ready for our first trip in a few weeks!

I had to put the left front landing leg's horizontal gear back together. Yes, our 2012 Pinnacle is still under warranty, but that requires a tow to the dealer and then waiting for the work to be completed.

While in the Yukon on our way back home, the machine pin which affixes the gear to the drive axle fell out!! I couldn't believe it! It was obvious that the factory assembly (or was it Jayco??) did not seat the pin in all the way. Fortunately I found the pin stuck in a blob of grease at the top of the leg.

I had to remove the front basement storage area's left panel and perform various contortions to get the gear and pin back together. The hardest part was getting the pin reseated. Luckily I was able to take a small upholstery hammer and tap the machine pin back in.

After that, all I want for Christmas is a universal joint halfway between my elbow and my wrist!

Did some pre-flight checks to head out tomorrow for 4 days.
Camping at Versailles State Park, Indiana. A sentimental place for me.

Re-sealed tail lights.
Put in new outside range hood vent. The damper hinge was broke in my vent.
Checked tool bag, tire pressure, battery.

Ready to roll
