I just made the appointment for 5 new Goodyear Endurance tires to be installed on 3/20. I decided not only to have the metal valve stems installed (for my TPMS) but also to have them all balanced for a smoother ride.

I have them on my 2017 26RBPR premier I had them balanced. I also went to load range D. Two trips to Florida from NW Ohio and they are doing well. I carry two of the originals just in case.

Thanks Jack for the info. The set I'm getting are also load range D tires. These should be a big improvement over the original "trailer King" tires!

All tires replaced including spare.

Temp dropped 40 degrees in one day here in NY. At home laid off because of the virus, so hoping to be able to spend a lot of time getting the Premier ready for camping once this thing is behind us...

I just mounted a spare tire under the tongue. Looks good and solid.

No I don't I could take some, but then I'd have to figure out how to post them. I'm also planning on cutting the rear bumper extending the frame and mounting a rear carrier. I'm old retired and waiting for warm weather. Today and tomorrow are the best days so far. I'll also redo the dicor and mount covers on the vents. Not as impressive as your list, but it keeps me busy.

Today I added a 15amp service to a bathroom outlet separate from the 30amp service to the rest of the trailer. This will be dedicated to my DW's hair dryer...

No more tripping breakers in the power post.

Jacked up both slides and added rollers. 5 installed on the 12' Dinette/Sofa slide and 4 on the 7' kitchen slide.

I just need to replace the bottom slide seals now.

Could you provide some info on the specs and source of your rollers?

I may need to do that on my Cougar.

Thanks.

I used Lippert 276288 J-36 Slide-Out Roller Assemblies. They sit taller than the original wear bar, but that allows the slide to ride on the rollers and it doesn't touch the existing wear bar that wasn't cut out to do the installation.

Here is the link I followed to do the repair:

FYI: The outside dimensions of the frame are 8.5 x 11

I added back lighting to the main TV. The lighting is powered by the TV's USB port and is controlled by a remote control so I can change the color and brightness.

Thanks.
When you installed the 2 screws that hold the roller to floor did there seem to be solid material that the screws could grab into, thanks

My large slide (Dinette/Sofa) the screws went into the wood subfloor. My Kitchen slide screwed into metal so I used self-drilling screws. All rollers grabbed into solid material.
