    Covering the PUP

    Due to some life events, I have yet to winterize my PUP. It has been raining a lot lately so I assume covering a wet PUP is a bad idea. Also, from what I have been reading on these forums, covering a PUP with a tarp is a bad idea! Since my pup is going to be stored outside exposed to the...

    Jayco 6-pin wiring to 7-pin redo

    My 2000 Jayco Qwest 10X had the wiring converted from the stock 6-pin rectangle adapter to a 7-pin adapter, presumably by the previous owner. After my last trip and having no left turn signal or brake lights, I realized I had a problem. I opened all the wiring up and found about 6 butt splices...

    Broken tail light lens tab

    Anyone have some suggestions as to the best way to fix a broken taillight tab that holds the tail light to the trailer? It's the part on the red lens that is broken. I thought about making a new tab out of a piece of aluminum and gluing it to the inside of the light. The previous owner just used...
