it is just emt. It seems pretty solid. I don't have a trip planned until early Aug, we'll see how it does then.

Would be interested in seeing some of the details on the connection to the stabilizer foot pad and the trailer. Have tossed this idea around, but havenít actually done it yet. TIA

Originally I had it bolted to the side of the stabilizer, however that quickly became an issue when you retracted the jack.



So I moved the connection to the underside. I did have to drill a hole, but the plate was indented anyways so the bolt head fits flush to the bottom.

Solar panel setup complete.

I installed my Solar Charge Controller in my Utility Bay, connected to the Furrion connector, then to a 30 ft 100W solar panel cable, so I can move it to catch as much as I can from the sun. Happy as a clam.

I store my coach in a secured storage facility with no power, this will keep my battery topped up. I always drop by the previous day to turn the fridge on, so we can pack it up on departure and it's cold.

Reconfigured my ProPride hitch stinger to be correct for our new TV receiver height and weight distribution. Reinstalled the spare tire and hanger (which has been at the dealer's for the past month for warranty repair on a cross-threaded lug nut), and was finally able to finish installation of the custom spare tire cover that came in a month ago. 107į today!

Got my tank flush valves unstuck, installed screen door handles on both doors, put mudflaps on the truck. FINALLY installed the TPMS I bought 6 months ago.....felt much more at ease driving the trailer today to go camping having it there.

I replaced the "secondary slide out seals" on the top of each of my slide outs. It was not as daunting of a project as I had imagined. The old ones had deteriorated to a sticky mess after seven years.

I finally got around to installing my second A/C with a remote T-Stat. Had a battery short a cell which ended up killing both my TV batteries and likely my second 5er battery and I also found a tire that is seperating. So for the next upgrade I'll be investing in L Ion or GC batteries along with a new set of tires. The A/C worked great but, I'm less than thrilled about buying 4 batteries and 4 new tires over a weeks time. The joys of owning an RV.

I sat in a folding lawn chair, looking at it, wondering when my parts are coming in, and contemplated burning it.

Today, I finished the install of the 6v batteries. I am still going get another steel strap welded across the bottom.
I installed a slim shade in the front door window. Lastly before dark I was on the roof replacing the 5 year old camco roof vent covers. The screen on one was falling apart. Last week I was on the Home Depot web site and found the covers there for half the price at the rv dealer.

Hitched up my TV and TT, left the entire rig at the TV dealer and told him to make the integrated brake controller on the six-week-old TV activate the brakes on my ten-month-old trailer, all under warranty. Finger pointing avoided because dealer's own body/tire/brake shop says there's nothing wrong with the TT brakes. Dealer informs me that they see a heck of a lot of this exact issue on F-250/F-350s since 2016.

If they see a lot of that they should know how to fix it. I had a 2015 f259, and a 2016 F350, now a 2019 f350. Friends are pulling TT but mostly 5ers with 2015 and up with no problems. I talked to the lead tech at my dealer and mobile tech I use today. Neither have heard of this problem.
