replaced about 25 missing exterior screws on this thing Sunday.

two beers of staring at the RV windows i bought last year, and still have no plan that im happy with.  new tool box configuration will kill what i had planned where to cut them in. 

hoping to spend some time on this guy next week to make some updates for the moab trip.  the new shop leaf blower is great for cleaning out the trailer!

caught a roof leak last week.  had noticed a buckled seem on the one piece roof in Moab.

used the sweet 49 for a work plat form and made the repair tonight with roof goo and a few screws.

What’s your procedure on winterizing?

Empty water tank as much as possible with pump
Dump some RV antifreeze into the tank
Pump through the system till pink comes out

? ? ?

I am going to pull the propane unit off the wall and store indoors for the winter

pump til pink comes out sink, toilet faucet, toilet, shower, and outdoor spigot (if you have one). Basically every line where water would be flowing needs to be pink.

first check to see if your pump has a bypass, where you can pump directly from a jug instead of just dumping into your tank.  You use a lot less this way, i.e. my 38ft camper only uses 2 gallons and it has hot and cold lines that run all the way to a sink back, a mid kitchen sink, front bathroom sink, shower and toilet and outside shower connection.

Set trailer in yard where pump pickup port was lowest point relative to level ground. Opened faucet till no water came out. Took water heater off the wall. Dumped in 4 gal of pink stuff and turned everything back on till solid pink came out. Done!

looks like the miles have caught up to my tires. 

2 new G steers showed up for the truck yesterday, considering just ordering 6 or 8 more at 158$ delivered for a speed rated G 225 thats a china copy of an HSR
