    Better idea... Brace it to the outside wall. Use some small aluminum angle to prevent buckling under compression.

    I thought about that, but I can't do it to the wheel well as it is just poly plastic and would not take the pressure. I may look into going out to the wall though.

    Scott, you are exactly right. I have two friends who just bought used travel trailers, and neither of them have a clue. I feel bad because they have had some issues, and keep asking me for help. I help when I can, but I am not always available. The only other option they have is a dealer.

    The plastic wheel well wouldn't support any vertical load. The aluminum brace would attach to the top and only apply in-out force. The through-bolt would be in shear. But I think the sidewall idea is better.

    Glad to see you were able to get your camper back in working order. Sorry you were the victim of poor manufacturing processes.

    So I have planned the "brewery tour" portion of the rally. We are going to hit Treehouse, Rapscallion and Homefield Kitchen and Brewery. All about a half hour away or so and we can make it all easily in 1 trip. I was thinking of doing it on Saturday as Treehouse opens at 11 and the others at 12. We could be there when they open and make it back in plenty of time to cook for the pot luck. I know Mike and Jimmy are in, who else would be interested?

    With regrets, Emily won't be able to attend next week. Her school and work are conspiring to make it impossible. My oldest will be at summer camp, so she won't be with us either. Looks like I'm still bringing the Tiramisu though.
    It'll just be me and the 2 little girls. Maybe a dog.

    Thanks Pat, you are making me feel better. [LOL]

    Jeff, sounds good, but you know we said the same thing about making it back in time at the PA rally, and we know how that worked out.

    Jimmy, sorry to hear Emily can't make it.

    And he's not even thinking about the fact that I have to bring Jake over to a friend's house an hour away for a sleepover that starts at 5pm...who's going to keep an eye on my tater tot casserole?!?

    Pat, I might be plugging my crockpot in over at your site!

    Yes indeed! The camper is back together, ready to go, and so am I. Can't wait to see everyone again.

    Jeff, I forgot Jimmy wasn't coming until Friday. Let's wait until Saturday, so he can go too.

    Glad to see the camper back in shape! I knew you couldn't show up without your rig.

    I'm going to try to get an early start on Friday. If I'm there at a decent hour, Friday might still work too.
    Even though it'll just be me and my 2 "little" ones, I'll still join the brewery tour. They're quite self sufficient and responsible. I'm not worried about leaving them for a few hours. Heck, they'll probably just be on their devices the whole time and be like "oh, you were gone?"
    Pat, if you don't mind, I'm going to give them your site number if they need anything.

    I Just checked to see if my site was available for Wed or Thurs. Thinking I could show up a day or 2 early. No dice. Booked. Ugh. I just want to get over there. It's so close! Just 59 minutes away.
