Plugged in and opened up on Saturday! Spent the night, and had our first breakfast of the season on the deck! If only the RV park had the water turned on... ��

I have winterized twice now and de winterized 2 days later both times this winter. Extent of our freezing weather here in south Georgia, plus we camp every month. I do have the winterizing down pat now! Only takes about 5 minutes and less than two bottles of anti freeze. If it gets close, I just run the furnace overnight.

De-Winterized March 30 when we picked it up from the dealer. We've camped 5 nights since then and are gone again on Friday for the weekend.

De-winterized and sanitized this afternoon. First ever for both with this TT, since we just picked it up in January and it hasn't budged from our driveway yet. That'll change next week. Can't wait!

If the weather continues to be good enough, who knows? We might just take it out THIS weekend, too.

Smile Planning our first trip in our new Jayfeather.

Dewinterized our Jayfeather and spent our first night in it in our driveway. We will be adding a topper to the mattress. Just a bit firm for us.

Picked it up last fall and getting ready for camping season. Made a few mods, added voltage monitor, shelf for Television monitor, battery shutoff, shore power detachable cable. Plan to camp at Heyburn State park in early June, Oregon State Park in July, then Celtic festival at Hamilton, MT in August. May do some local boondocking in Forest Service CG in between. Pretty nice not having to put up the top and roll out the beds that our previous Coleman Westlake had.

Dewinterized yesterday. Will be heading out to a local park for a shakedown next weekend. Picked the trailer up on March 1st and have been getting familiar with the systems. I added a tv in the bedroom and performed a couple of other mods:
■ Built undercarriage sewer equip holder (5" plastic post). I will post in mods section.
■ Added shelves in cabinets.
■ Weatherstripped area between bed deck & front storage
■Added wall pouch for "stuff" storage in bunk area
■ Added rearview camera

Looking forward to our first trip!
