(I know, it's a Starcraft, but Jaycos name is all over it)

Spent last night in "Camp Driveway" and then sadly, we winterized our trailer today and put the cover on Now the long wait until spring.

What Did You Do To Your Jayco TODAY?

We went CAMPING!!!!!!!

The camp host stopped by our site to let us know she was closing up the last bathroom. Now it's off to the shower house any time we need to do #2.

Tomorrow is winterization day.

Sallie finished a nice quilt for our bed today. The colors of the quilt go well with the colors in the trailer.

Ordered the blow out hose from CampingWorld. Also got a patio mat for the front of the camper.

Sadly brought her home and winterized her. She is now in camper storage with her friends until the spring when she will awaken again to the daylight.

I bought a heated blanket for the Jayco today. It will help with the harsh Arizona winter.

I switched my propane from the on board tanks to my 150 gallon external tank for the winter. I also put out 9 solar/LED landscape lights around the front. I will be on this site until spring unless the mood strikes me to go somewhere.

In the next day or two I will be changing the oil and filter in my Onan.

Because I've recently read quite a bit about rear bumper failures due to mounting bikes and spare tires and cargo platforms...etc. I got worried about my bike rack with 2 bikes and the spare tire carrier all mounted back there where I can't see them while in tow. Not that my bumper looks like its about to fall off...it doesn't at all; no bent/crushed/stressed metal and the welds are full length on both sides plus the top. Its a pretty solid bumper...nonetheless I couldn't stop being concerned that something catastrophic could happen and other drivers might get hurt or sustain vehicle damage at least. I'd also lose my sewer hose, bikes, spare tire, tag and the bumper. I decided to reinforce it myself using 2-1/2 steel brackets that by chance, someone left at my jobsite. If you can imagine a steel strip 4 inches wide by 22" long bent half in the middle of the long dim. out of 1/2" steel plate. Perfect!!! I took the pair of them and cut the side lengths down to 7" and 9", drilled holes and used the 9" leg to attach to the frame and the 7" leg to the bumper with 2-5/8 x 3" hex bolts and 4-3/8 x 1 carriage bolts respectively on each side. I'll have to post pictures but let's just say it looks like overkill and I could probably hitch a trailer to it now. The bumper isn't going down even if the welds crack...what's even better is that the carriage bolts don't interfere with the sewer hose storage inside the tube. I probably added 25 lbs to the rear but hey, the bumper is secure.

I wonder if these missing parts are more wide spread than we know?
Same thing happened to me....Dexter axles...2 broken adjuster springs... 1 chewed up adjuster wheel. Replaced...no warranty.
