Installed SB-50 connectors on batteries, charger and extension cords. I can now charge batteries without removing cover to attach the charger. Jus plug and go

Hey there JoeT... would you mind noting here some more detail ( or even better shoot some pics) on the pieces and parts? Not sure what you are speaking of exactly, but sounds GREAT. I have my battery cover attached with screws on the side. Your plan sounds like a fantastic idea. Thanks if you will!


Well, there's your problem!

I got home yesterday and left it parked outside overnight. Today I went out there and popped it up to get the clothing and food out. I also went through another sanitation cycle for the water system because I wasn't 100% confident that I was completely successful the first time around. The water from the holding tank tasted just a bit different than I thought it should while I was on the trip. I put a bleach mixture in it before I left the campground and let it slosh around on the trip home and then sit overnight. It now tastes as it should. There may have been nothing amiss but I figure that in the case of consumable water it is prudent to be overcautious. I also measured the floor because I have decided to carpet it as I did with the Yuma.

We cleared the stuff off the top and away from the front of the PUP (it stays in our garage). Tomorrow we plan to pull it out and prep it for next weekend. [8D]

opened it up to air it out from the last trip. Learned the hard way not to make the campfire too close to the camper. Then I swept it out and took a nap in the driveway :) [:)C]

Cleaned and greased my wiffletree. I mean, the campers wiffletree. [A]

When I removed the cover I discovered that a mouse built a nest in the housing. Luckily there weren't any critters in there also. And none got inside the camper.

Congrats pasnowlady!

Today I've decided to pack LOTS less stuff in my popup. Seems I have "everything" when I go camping, and don't use most of it! ha! So... less is more, I think!

Pulled it out of the storage barn....YAY!! Tomorrow I'll pop it up and have a look around.

Also bought a few odds and ends like zip ties, extension cord, etc. Cannot WAIT to open it up and get ready for camping next weekend, weather permitting! [8D]

Moved it from the dirt section of the backyard to the cement slab in the backyard. Need to check for damages. Two weeks ago after the N2U pup had been up for checks and testing of systems, a 70 - 80 mph gust of wind lifted the tongue end via the front bunkend, and moved it three ft to the left and dropped it about 18". We put it up and back down prior to pushing it onto the cement pad. That is when we found that the door won't close properly, we also found out that the walls were leaning toward the roadside of the pup. The pup didn't blow over because it was tied down using parachute cord and tent stakes, because of the winds. We had been putting it up, doing a testor check, then putting it back down, but that got old very quick. Sunday we plan to put it up but I think that may have to wait till next weekend since tomorrow is Mother's Day and I don't want to make DW mad.
I will let you know what happens.

I installed a new Parallax 6730 converter. Replaced 3 outlets. Installed a new GFCI. Attached a new digital volt meter to the battery. (Read 13.69 volts! [:D] [:D] [:D]) So after all that, I'm headed for the sack! [SNZ] [SNZ] [SNZ]
