With temperatures forecasted to be in the 60's later in the week, it is getting real close to waking up the trailer as the first camping trip is less than two weeks away!! How about the rest of you non-snowbirds???

Started work this week. Hooked up the batteries, then hooked on to the rig and moved it over away from the wall so I could repack wheel bearings. New grease seals also. Had to replace a couple wheel studs, the threads started pulling.


Frank, quit bragging.

Well, if you come up to the factory rally I am sure we could give you a hands on demonstration on how to use the pink stuff I bet we could even sell tickets and beer!!

Just took her out for her second voyage this weekend. We did a great rookie mistake though. We never finished rinsing the pink stuff out on the 1st trip because we were afraid it was going to run into the water heater (don't ask). So this weekend, we were parked next to a very nice family who had just traded in their beloved zinger for a larger heartland. They told us what to do. Then, the newbies that we are go, "so how do we actually know there is water in our water heater?" SoDH andIsimultaneously got a brillant idea to find out. Now wait for it.... DH went over and unscrewed the drain plug enough to see if water would leak out, it did and then he tried to tighten it. Unable to do so, he decided to take off the drain plug and rethread it.... with the water still turned on. The drain plug and water went flying out soaking DH and our kindly neighbor. The chairs were sent flying from the water pressure. The neighbor ran to turn off the water and then we all fell to the ground laughing hysterically. His wife asked us if that was his brillant idea and we had to convince her that my DH thought of that all on his own. And yes we offered him beer and smores for his help but somehow that just didn't seem to be enough.

Hey We live in rhode island, it is showing signs of SPRING. Replaced battery today will dewinterise later this week. Heading for Virginia first week of April. Curious what gear ration do you have in your F350? I did not notice a big change with the power upgrade, however this will be the first tow so the 800fpt should make it easy. Happy Trails

That would mean I would have to go north where Lloyd has all of that white stuff saved. Hmmm Hoover has his summer do could not put him thru the shock. How ever the adult beverage sounds good
