I have naturally frizzy hair. Kind of looks a lot like my avatar, only with more curl. I'm just wondering if I should invest in a pair of Wellies. My old shrimp boots gave up the ghost awhile back.

Our local forecast is for up to several inches of snow for this coming Tuesday. I hope most of it will be melted by Friday.

For those ordering parts for delivery, the cutoff will be 3:00pm Thursday. That way, I can get everything loaded into the truck before we go home for the day.

I don't think that we'll be able to make it to Springstream, but it was good meeting you at Hunting Island and thanks again for rigging the gift exchange so that we could win your camper/birdhouse!

I need help. I mean, the trailer needs help and I need help to help it. Well, you know what I mean.

The ZipDee awning hasn't been out for 6 or more years. When I tried to pull it open, apparently the rust on the rollers was stronger than I was. Should I try to spray some penetrating oil or WD40 into the ends?

At Alumilina, can I get help opening this stubborn thing?

Thanks, Phil.

Hinge screws loose

A while back someone (John, maybe) posted about door issues. I looked at mine, and it has issues.

The two large Phillips head screws accessible from outside are loose on the bottom hinge. When I tried to tighten them, they just turn without stop ("da boat a dem"). I assume there is/was a plate with two threaded holes in the jamb. I presume since the screws don't tighten up, that plate is not behind the hinge area anymore, but instead is rattling around on the bottom rail. If that is true, I would like to fix it. Actually, I'd like to fix the hinge whether that is true or not.

Any help would be appreciated.

Phil

I would try some rust buster stuff, WD 40 is ok but not so much for that. PB BLaster is a good one

The door hinge screws have hidden nuts inside the door frame. Holding your nuts in that instance will probably require removing at least part of a panel and possibly drilling two holes to gain access.

Thanks Alan. I do have PB Blaster somewhere.

I did get on a ladder to look at the end of the awning. It looks like some kind of lock (I'll try to attach a photo). Never had that on my older ones... I wonder if that locks it to keep it from unrolling when stowed.

While I have the floor, I had a bad experience at a local campground. I pulled my trailer into a campground so I could get water and electricity. I was told to use pull-throughs 2, 3, or 4. I chose 4. The smell was bad, but I figured it was my piping being dry and not trapping odors. I went home for dinner and went back after dark and there was water standing on site 5. I looked for the source, and found it was the sewer connection backing up. I had hooked up the electricity (30 amp didn't work, so I used my 15 amp adapter with the 20amp receptacle on the stand), but refused to hook up anything else, and pulled it out this morning to go to a different campground. I called the owner/host (not on site) and explained, and he apologized, and said no charge for the night. Attached is a picture of the mess next door and how close my steps were to the puddle. We're in the process of disinfecting the interior today and tomorrow.

and yes, that curved thing on the awning head is a lock. Should pull out to unlock the tube, remains out during use and roll up, then locked back.

Well it looks like the tyranny of work has created a situation where we will not be making it down this Spring...especially at a time when I need it most. Guess we'll have to wait until Fall if there is another rally. Having said that, if there is anyone on the waiting list interested in taking our site...please PM me. Have a great rally...I know you will.
