Same as Camping Grandpa - good scrubbing on the outside along with vacuum inside. Unfortunately no upcoming trip as we are winding down for the season....

I let the rear tire pressure down to 65 from 80 since I'm finished towing for a couple of weeks. My right rear pressure sensor just beeped indicating a low battery, but I removed it and will replace the battery in a few.

Aired the tires up to recommended pressures, 75 in rear and 60 in front.

Put a pin in the 2.5 to 2 inch hitch adapter. Noticed that after adjusting my 2 wdh hitches for the extra height of the new truck I had forgot to put the pin back in the adapter. Been driving around for 2 days without it. It's a wonder it didn't fall out.

Road trip

We are at a campground in Twin Falls for what is likely our last trip before parking the TT for winter. Yesterday, we left the TT and drove to Boise and back to visit one of the kids. Our truck got over 21 mpg while going a legal 80 mph for the four hours of interstate driving, all on cheap 85 octane gas. Today, we tow the TT back home, probably at 17 mpg at 65 mph like last week when we came to Twin Falls.

And yes, the other Jayco factory is located here.

Over the weekend I took it out to the deer lease, but it had "light duty"; my dad's truck did all the heavy lifting this time!

Last night, I started mapping out the installation of a hard-wired inverter. Looks like it's going to be easier than I thought. There's a great spot for it under the rear seat that has easy access for wires coming from the engine bay. The only real doubt I have left is where and how I will ground it. I don't really want to run a pos and neg all the way from the engine bay, but if that's the way it has to be, then so be it. I will try for a chassis ground closer to the inverter itself, and it looks like that should be doable.

Just gotta get DW to let loose of some funding! LOL!!

From someone who had a inverter in the last 3 (of 5) daily drivers:

Run 2 wires. The body grounds are NOT going to handle anything over 30A. Plus steel is not the conductor copper is. The losses will drive you nuts!

See if you can mount the inverter on the cabin side of the firewall to really shorten the lead lengths.

Pre-trip checks

Before leaving last weekend, I hitched the TT, plugged in the 7-pin, and checked that all lights were working. Then I tested the trailer brakes, and the trouble started. The manual brake knob popped off in my hand. When I tried to reattach it, I saw that the brakes were still energized. I unplugged the 7-pin do that the brakes wouldn't overheat. Then I went to State Trailer to buy another controller. Of course, I had to make a second trip to Walmart for wire connectors because I had the wrong size. Four wires later, everything worked properly, and we finally started on our trip.
We were really glad that it failed in the driveway rather than on the road.
