    Sounds good and let me know if you have any problems with the trailer that I should be looking for. Take care.

    We keep our trailer at a storage as my homeowners association only allows me to have the trailer at my house for 24 hours. I haven't noticed any fading on the trailer, but I park between two giant trailers that keep me pretty shaded. We haven't gone camping at any local places. We are heading out in about a week for four days to Pismo Beach for the annual clam festival. It is pretty cheesy, but the kids like it. We have quite a few friends going also and all of the guys have chartered a fishing boat out of Avila. That part should be really fun.

    I had no idea...I did not read the directions until lately. I upgraded the TV recently so now I am anxious to try it!
    I like the idea of a cover but you are right....seems like a giant pain, but I might not have any choice....the front of the trailer looks bad. I will try and do a warranty claim, because I think it is fading prematurely. I have washed it and waxed it....should not look like this.
    My plan is to hit Joshua Tree in December....other than that I do not have any plans.
    Let me know if you see any fading on your....is yours at home or in an RV lot? When are you going out again? How are the RV parks in Bakersfield? Have you found any local places you really like?

    For the TV antenna there should be a little button on the plate where the cable is screwed in under the cabinet. If you turn it on while hooked up to cable it will make everything fuzzy. If you turn it on while using the antenna then it boosts the antenna and you get much better reception.

    I recently purchased a cover for the trailer, however I have yet to put it on. I would like to wash it before I put it on. I am sure it will be a giant pain in the ass to do, but hopefully pay off in the future. You guys going anywhere soon?

    Yo Darren, whats up.....so, yes the front black strip that runs across the front of the trailer where it changes from one panel to another....it was coming un-glued. so, I used some adhesive caulking to hold it down and silicon caulk on the top.....looked factory when I was done. Was looking at the front of the trailer today and it looks like it is starting to fade a bit on the drop down door-bed and the curved part on the front top of the trailer. Not sure what to do about that?? I started looking today at what I need to do for yearly service cause I really have not done anything.... By the way, I was reading the manual and I never knew about this....do we have this??

    For good station reception, the TV power supply must be turned
    ON to view local television stations. Turning the TV power supply
    ON sends 12-volt DC through the cable to the TV roof antenna.
    The voltage energizes the transistors in the antenna head

    I have had trouble with the electric water heater not working, but they fixed it right away. Have you had any problems that I might need to look for in mine? We were thinking maybe around spring break or sometime in the spring before it gets too hot to head to Utah. How can I see the front hitch for carrying your bikes? This is a problem that I have been trying to figure out.

    Well, I guess that is our fault for spoiling them .... My wife kind wants the best of both worlds....full hook-ups and breathtaking beauty and privacy...."ummm yeah Dear, ummm that does not really exist that I know of yet" .So, I was thinking a good compromise would be a more self contained option and being able to get out to some more remote places. Darren, to be honest she kind of ruined it a little bit for me....I was happy as a clam...until she planted that little seed...."this place feels too much like a parking lot".....

    That sounds like a good plan for Utah, when are you thinking of making the trip??? Have you had any issues with your trailer? Where do you store it? I posted a pic of my front hitch on my profile for carrying bikes....check it out.

    You are lucky because my wife is not going unless we have complete hookups so I guess I have to find places that aren't as crowded. When we hit Utah I am thinking about staying somewhere between the two parks and driving in everyday. My grandparents lived in St. George, Utah and as a kid I remember driving to the parks from there. It didn't seem like too long of a drive. We may even stay in St. George a night or two since my grandmas cousin owns Temple View rv park in St. George.

    Darren, Just typed you a new message and I think I accidently deleted it!! Anyway, yes we stayed at the same place in seqouia too! Amazing swimming hole!! Instant relief!! My wife has talked about Utah too.....have you found a good place to stay yet? Do they permit RV'S inside those parks or do you stay outside and drive in?
    I am going to try and do more trips in fall and spring when the weather is a little cooler. We are planning to camp at Joshua Tree in December and i am hoping to have a generator by then so that we can camp at Jumbo Rock Campground? I have also been looking at trailer modifications that will allow me to enjoy more remote places. Kinda checking out the forum to see what others are doing.
