Supposed to pull fumes from the tank when underway. We have noticed some septic smells at times when driving. Will find out if this cures the problem.

Saturday I uncovered the trailer . Dewinterized, installed electric tongue jack. Inspected the roof , today start loading it up for Easter weekend. We are using it at a local campground just to get it out for the first trip of the year. It seems like not a lot of campgrounds open quite yet.

Watched ANOTHER 6 inches of snow fall on the trailer today. More coming this afternoon and all night. We had hardly a flake for all of November, December, January, and February. Now it's supposed to be Spring in March, and we are getting FEET of snow. What in the world happened ? Did Congress suddenly decide to lower our taxes, or what ? Or maybe the IRS is giving us all a 50% refund on last year's taxes ??

Ground is still frozen here in my part of the woods so I plowed the slow away enough to get the truck backed up and pulled the Jayco out off her winter resting location beside the garage and parked it on the driveway. Calling for mild weather here all week and once that snow all melts and the frost is gone from the ground it would be stranded there until August before it dries up again!!

trimmed memory foam pad to fit queen bed. Put on the new comforter set and mattress pad. Added some organizers we just got from camping world. Installed the new latching ends for the rear bumper storgage.
We still have alot of snow here in NY so we are chomping at the bit to get out. We were going to go camping next week during the kids spring break but alot of campgrounds that open april 1st have postponed their opening due to snow storms and frozen ground. They also won't turn on the water at the campgrounds because our temps are around 10 degrees still at night.
