Dean, you're right, trailer balancing is oh so important for a safe tow. I've had the pleasure of pulling loads that weren't balanced and it makes for a nerve racking trip!

If your trailer floor is wood strips then there's no keeping the dust out

Enjoy BM

Maybe check out the shrink wrap that they use to transport boats. That would work for the trailer that you are not going to access until you get there? Cost vs benefit is always the question.

Dave, shrink wrap is definitely worth considering.

When I moved from Arkansas to Kentucky I used shrink wrap on each of the items that went on the open trailer. I never had problems with things getting wet using shrink wrap so Dean might find that the dust would be minimized if he shrink wrapped things.

I think I paid about $20 for a 24" tall roll. About two rolls got me through 24 moving trips.

We are expecting snow this evening so I started up the GenSet and let it run a bit.

It was down to 20 degrees over night and up to 38 this morning. I had to kick in the coach batts to get it to turn over fast enough. Had a very small fuel leak at the external filter and tightened the hose clamp. It's always a good thing to do a visual check! Also adjusted the idle and mixture screws. It always runs a bit too fast...135v and 62hertz. My surge protector won't kick in if voltage is too high.

I also ran my Yamaha 2000 for a bit. I'm sure it would have started right away if I had turned on the run switch instead of the economy switch!

I checked the seams and caulking on the roof yesterday and all looks good. I just have that damn windshield leak that I don't seem to able to fix.

Interior Photos

I've been meaning to take a few nice photos of the interior and upload them for some time now. Finally got around to it as I was inside waiting for the snow to fall today. 3-4 Inches so far!

Dean,

That is really nice and really tasteful. I know a lot of us have watched you put it together piece by piece over a couple of years, but the whole has definitely exceeded the sum of the parts. Beautiful job.

Charly

Terrific work. You did justice to the vehicle and your parents. It has been a pleasure following this thread.

Absolutely incredible! That is am amazing rehab. I an printing out the pics and going to go over and look at what ideas I can borrow. I can't get over how well the barrel chairs and original couch look. The contrasting colors that separate the cockpit and sitting area, but give a sense of roominess and comfortable chatting. The sink door and drawer panels and hardware replacement with the new counter are fantastic.

An amazing job!
