Welcome aboard. One thing I would do soon is go up on the roof and check all the caulking. It cracks a bublrs, and will let water in. I found a few this spring on mine, that need to be caulked, including a few side wall locations.

Thank you for that tip. What type of caulking would be best for this job?
Thanks again.

We bought used from a retired couple. We're really happy with the trailer's condition. Thanks for the tip re: wdh once loaded; we'll check out your signature links.
YW!!!

Also know that your tt should have a propane detector, and if working properly it will kill the battery within about a week or so unless you keep the tt plugged in between trips. I mounted a Blue Sea mini switch to my battery box to eliminate this. Makes it easy compared to unhooking the battery after every trip.l, just a 1/4 turn and the battery if unhooked. Check my mods link for pics. I actually replaced the battery box with a group 27 box, and mounted the switch in it.

If you don't have a power tongue jack, they are awesome for hooking a wdh up!!!

I wondered how much the detectors drain...the battery goes down like you said. I may need to look at a new battery some day as it is the original from 2008. The battery switch and power jack would be handy items as well as well.

Thanks again,




John
