Trip is coming up in 2 weeks. I need to go so I can stop tinkering and spending money on this trailer. I have added a Dishwashing Station. And I installed a Rear View Camera. Dont worry I soldered under that terrible tape job. I removed one of the running lights and wired the power through that for the camera. I always drive with the running lights on since it powers the dc/dc charger. Should make changing lanes and backing up a little easier.

Added a Bidet sprayer to our toilet. Easier to use than the shower head to clean up after taco night :).

Actually, I have serious issues with bending from and injury and need a bidet. (I can no longer contort myself in the positions required to use this bathroom.)

Included links to some hard-to-find parts for making the connections (as well as the bidet I used). They didn't sell them at my local big box store. The only part I did get there find was the 90deg 1/2"PEX to 1/2" threaded, and clamps.

I unwinterzed my TT. I flushed the lines and sanitized the fresh water tank. I fired up all the appliances and let them run a bit. Happy to report, everything worked as it should.

Then, I vacuumed and shampooed the carpet. Yes....my trailer has factory carpet from front to back. Its my most disliked feature.

That carpet wouldn’t last 10 min with my son and I on a camp. We are dirty boys . Amazing that light color still looks good. You must be super neat while getting in and out.

Rebuilt the wall system on our water storage cubby. Painted and caulked it, so we are good for handling reasonable leaks in the grocery store water bottles, - and the caught leaked water will exit via the floor drain (formerly a battery bottom vent).

We decided to revamp Camp Back Yard this year! Reoriented the ShelterLogic cover on an angle, taking out two garden plots to do so, and adding new plantings. Just a beginning really. We want to put in limestone walkways and a fire circle in front of the camper and really enjoy this. I'm in the midst of an MSN and find it hard to get too far from good Internet access for very long. This should help scratch that camping itch. :) Plus it's a lot easier to get the pup in and out of its slot than it was when it was perpendicular to the alley.

I will be posting more photos whether you want to see them or not. Heh

@JimmyM…. Thanks for the info. DH ordered the PD4135K model from ETrailer. It was the model recommended by my local Kodiak dealership. Hopefully it works out and charges our lithium battery while boondocking and using our Honda generator. DH wanted the lithium battery option.

Happy Camping…[put&hy]
We are looking at a Honda Generator also .. may I ask what you folks are using .. thanks Glenn

I have not brought mine camping. But I do have several generators. If your looking for one that can power an AC, you generally have to have somewhere around 1800-2000 minimum. If you can swing it, get an Inverter based like the Honda EU's. I've had decent luck with my sportsmen 1000, I've run all the recommended break in routines and oil changes, and now works very well. I also have the Ryobi 2300, it purrs quite well. The rolling carry handle is a nice touch, Bluetooth to tell you how much fuel is left, and how heavy your load is, with remote stop. If I were to get it today, Id strongly consider the upgraded model which has a battery start. Not that starting this thing is difficult, but it is nice to have!!!

I have been bringing mine out of hibernation this week. I let the fridge run on both 120 and propane a couple of days to check it. I went in the trailer today to shut it off. It's 27 years old and still working good. Outside and inside the trailer was in the 80s. The fridge was 29 degrees.

Performed lift system maintenance. This obviously had NEVER been performed on our '95 Cedar. It was a battle raising and lowering it. After lubing the pulleys, cables, cleaning and lubing the wiffle tree, it now raises and lowers easily. I had bought a 24V drill and crank adapter, but it wouldn't budge. Had earlier tried a 20V drill, and burned it up trying. There was so much debris in the wiffle tree housing and threads of the wiffle tree itself, no wonder! Next I'm going to repack the wheel bearings. Want all this done before our first trip of the year, which will be a 4 hour drive one way. The more I do to this poor neglected pop-up, the more I love it!

Installed the Velcro on roof end boards for my new Gizmos.
The remainder of my time has been spend untangling the Gizmo bungees 🤣
One hunt, once you get those shock cords untangled, is to crochet them when you fold up. With ours, since we did a ring mod so each side was connected to one ring (there’s now a thing or to do that), I just crocheted each side. I saw the balloonists doing it with their lines, as well as someone who did it with a long extension cord.
