Upgraded her power. The 1.5 year old off-brand let us down twice while camping and during the extended Irma outage. Was left with "old faithful", our ~15 year old EU1000i. It ran the house fridge and lights and never complained.

Was an interesting time after Irma - got to play with friends and neighbors generators, and while not seeing every offering, the clear choice was the EU3000is 4WD! I'm in generator heaven.

you will get many years of trouble free service from that gen. Be sure to do you maintenance as recommended

Yep and agreed. First mod was an hour meter. The 1000 still starts on the first pull.

Came home from the last camping weekend of the season, emptied, cleaned and winterized the TT.

Update 9-27-17:

The replacement door arrived from Amazon Prime and the install literally took minutes. First I removed the latch mechanism from the old door while still on the Norcold. Two screws and a phillips screwdriver and it was on the new door. I removed the stuff in the door and took it off. Removed the metal retrofit lower hinge bracket from the old door put it on the new door then hung the new door on the refrigerator. Then removed the shelves from the old door and put them on he new door one at a time (easier to keep up with which shelve goes on which attach point this way). Put my items back in the door and then removed the wood panel from the old door and installed on the new door. I thought it would be a lot easier to hang the new door without that heavy wood panel on it - It was! That wood panel is heavier than the door. No wonder the plastic hinge isn't up to the task. I hope the metal retro hinge support will keep this new plastic hinge from breaking again.

I did turn the Norcold off during the couple of minutes the door was off to keep the alarm from beeping at me. As soon as the new door was hung I turned the unit back on. My iced tea never even knew the door was gone.

Well, OK, it was last night, not today, but...

Installed a power tongue jack (Husky Brute 4500), which doesn't come as standard on the 19XUD
I've still got to tidy up the wiring, and add an extra ground line, but the mechanical installation was easy, took about 30 minutes. That included blocking up the tongue, finding my tools and tidying up afterwards.

I've been promising myself one for some time, as part of my programme to make camping as kind as possible to my old bones, so last month's' bonus check made it happen :-)

Didn't do anything to her, but got the much anticipated call that she'd arrived at our dealer. Picking her up on Wednesday. Needless to say, were very excited.

I dropped it off at the storage yard today. I won't see it again until the end of April, unless I take a special trip over there and look at it through the fence.

Dang that's a long time. I believe I'd have the DT's if I couldn't at least walk out my garage door and enter mine just cause I could

Started to empty her out for the winter. Can't believe how many things we have that take batteries!
