SmokerBill,

Thanks for the pictures and the commentary. I have a suggestion about your door that seems a little off at the bottom. Try adjusting the stabilizer jacks at the front and back of your trailer--it may be that the frame is torqued a bit, causing the door to seem out of kilter. I had a similar problem when I first started camping in a tt and it was resolved by adjusting the stabilizer jacks.

Smoker...I love the stitch-job on your pie!

Well done & keep the posts coming.. me and 'the boy' are going salmon fishing tomorrow - was out last weekend and saw 15-24 pounders being pulled in off the shore.

Regarding your door.....somehow I think you've got that covered!

I installed the bug screens on the refrigerator panel, water heater and furnace this morning. Also put the wraparound step covers on the stairs. Should keep some of the dirt out of the trailer... (no outdoor RV rug yet).

Yesterday when I was riding my bike a spoke broke, and the tire started to bulge in one spot. Found a bike shop in Lawrence this AM and bought some spokes and a new tire. I've been getting my exercise today by replacing a couple of rotted out window sills on my mom's house. One is done, the other half done. Taking a break now.

Sam, when I set up the trailer I adjusted the tongue stand to level the trailer, then dropped the jacks down till they touched (on some hard plastic jack pads), then gave them each about 1/2 a turn more. Maybe I should have ran the front tires onto boards to level the trailer instead of using the tongue stand to level. I'll play with the leveling jacks to see if I can straighten the door. If that doesn't work I'll try leveling the tires.

I might have had a few too many Bud lights last night. Felt kind of rough this morning.

Here's another pic of some of the deer I saw yesterday morning.

It IS hunting season here in Kansas, at least the archery deer season. They probably feel safe in the campground, where no hunting is allowed.

Got the last window done. Time to relax now.

Bill,

Our door is pretty square across the bottom. I would definitely try out what Sam said.

Will do, Patrick.

I'm cooking up a little pot of soup right now. It's been a hard day. Started out with a 45 minute bike ride in the cold this morning, then drove out to mom's and finished the work there. Got all the exterior trim around the windows and doors painted, and the front fascia board, too. Then mowed her 1.5 acre yard. Good thing she has a riding mower. After that, took her for a little ride around Wyandotte county lake, one of my old haunts when I was a teenager.

It's going to be early to bed tonight, and then tomorrow I'll dump the holding tanks. Gray and black are both between 1/3 and 2/3 full. Then need to air up the rear pickup tires before I head back down to Hutchinson.

Overall, I think it's been a pretty successful trial run. Since I haven't filled the fresh water tanks yet, I'll do that in the morning, then test the pump by filling the holding tanks with clean water to flush them out when I dump.

Have a good one,

I notice that my fan only has the one speed on the fan only setting as well. Wonder if thats how its supposed to be? Probably not. Its on my list of warranty fixes, too. Looks like your having a great time. We are heading out this weekend for what will probably be our last trip for the year. Depressing, but gives us something to look forward to over the long winter months.
