Pulled it from Spokane to Colville, WA. I pulled it with the fresh water tanks (90 gallons) close to full, because the tap water from the east side of Spokane (Newman Lake, actually) is really good drinking water. Even filled up a couple of 6 gallon water jugs.

I noticed that the handling characteristics of the TT on the road was different with the full tanks. I just looked to make sure, and saw that one tank is completely in front of the front axle, and 2/3 of the second tank is also in front of the front axle. So full tanks on my TT adds a good bit of extra tongue weight compared to pulling it with empty tanks.

So after dealing with the manager over service today (who by the way is new, so I can't blame him, which adds to my frustration!), they will be checking their 2 other dealerships for parts and at my strong suggestion, be scavenging parts off of their current inventory. And I will be getting a call tomorrow from the General Manager, who was conveniently off today!

Needless to say, I not pleased with Rv-Maxx right now!

No that's what I did to my Jayco today...I fought for her!

At least now you know what is really going on. Sorry you're going through this headache! Hopefully you'll be reunited with your camper soon and onto the next trip.

DH got the clear plexiglass panel for the bottom part of the screen sanded down to the right size, and wrestled it into place. He has caulked the inside, but still wants to caulk the outside of both that panel and the new window in the door. :-)

Had it inspected and the wheel bearings packed. 17 days until our 6000 mile trek.

Discovered a flat tire (screw in the edge of the sidewall) that had to be changed before we headed home. Also discovered that the braintrust at Jayco drilled the spare tire lift access hole in the fender skirt about 2" too high and to the right. Thankfully I was able to get the tire down without too much trouble, but I'm not debating filing a warranty claim for a new fender skirt with the hole drilled in the correct place.

Thankfully this happened at the campground and not on the road somewhere, especially as it was on the off-door side.

On first trip. Mattress must be army issued. Its just a wee hard.. Into WalMart . for a 2.5 inch memory foam pad.

We're doing OK maneuvering in shopping centers.

Tested our brake controller at 65 mph today too. The guy in front of us going 70 just stopped; he had missed his exit.. last we saw he was backing up in the high speed lane.

Cleaned the roof. Tried the spic and span, I'm sold works way better than any cleaners I've tried for the roofs. Washed the outside and waiting to wax tomorrow.

Four projects completed today on my North Point 377RLBH!
1) Installed front JT Strongarm System.
2) Installed two MaxxAir II Vent Covers over bath and loft vents.
3) Installed a "big bubble" level on the front bulkhead, so that it's easier to level to side to side.
3) Removed back basement storage wall panels to find, identify, and separate the two pair of wires for the upcoming solar install.

Plus, DW got a bunch of things done in the interior!

All-in-all, a great day!

Be Safe, and Everyone Goes Home,
