Fresh water pump would run but no water pressure. Took it to the dealer today and they are replacing the pump. Should get it back tomorrow and hit the road for TX tomorrow afternoon.

Replaced the two old amber clearance lights on my '05' Eagle's front cap this morning. They were getting a little weathered and have endered a couple "Dicor touch-ups" over the years.

New lights, some butyl tape, and a little Dicor caulking gave the cap a fresh look.

I've been concerned about the water tightness of those recessed clearance lights at the top of the front cap; the recess makes a nifty funnel when driving or with wind blowing to concentrate water and air blowing at the clearance lights.

I removed mine a while ago and put in a heavy layer of butyl behind the lights, between the rear of the light and the cap material. What did you do with the Dicor?

After carefully trimming off the excess butyl with a razor knife so it was flush around the white plastic clearance light base seam, I then ran a small bead of Dicor (vertical surface blend, not the self-leveling stuff) around the top edge seam of the plastic white light base and down both side edge seams (not the bottom base edge) giving the Butyl a little extra moisture "run-off" protection. It also provides a better finish look as well. (NOTE: I didn't apply any Dicor to the actual amber lens cover seam).

This same Dicor moisture "run-off" application should be performed on all windows, door frames, tail lights, etc., but it's not necessary to apply the Dicor all the way down the side seams of the windows, doors, etc..

The Dicor is a little "tacky/stringy" upon applying, so I let it set for a little while, then run a wet finger to smooth out the Dicor along the edge.

Jayco use to do this on all there new FW's, TT's, etc., don't know if they still do.

I washed the shady side of the trailer this morning. Tomorrow evening I will wash the other side when it cools down. Then the waxing will begin.

We took our brand new 2014 Precept out for a shake down trip. 15 items for dealership to fix before we head to Florida in November for the winter. Can't wait!!

Winterized it and parked out back under the carport. Waiting for spring already. We started booking for next year already!

I waxed part of the front cap today. I have about half of it done as it is taking about 4 coats to get it looking good. Last year I was LAZY and didn't even wash the trailer so I am paying for it this year.
