The OP might want to book a space for a thorough inspection and leak test so he is aware of any issues as he heads for home.

Excellent suggestion. Any idea what that would cost? I can give them a call on Monday.

I meant my comment the way you took it.
If I had meant it the other way, I would have said "strangers and in-laws"...

Call them for current prices. We had the Seal-Tec leak test and their 27-Point Inspection done last fall and I believe it's around 6-7 hours labor for the two, in the neighborhood of $700-$800. If your wheel bearings need repack this is good time to do it because I think they pull the wheels to check bearing runout and brakes as part of the inspection.

I did it because the trailer was nearly two years old and warranty about to expire. And they check and adjust little things like propane gas pressure, which was low. They found several small leaks which they fixed that I had already identified with my Sonin Moisture Test Meter. I was well satisfied and maybe slept a little better afterwards.

We maintain our trailer well, but I like the idea of their experience looking it over well and checking for leaks. I'll probably do it every again every couple of years or so when passing near the area in our travels.

As far as just dropping by for a visit and using the Terraport, I think they look at that in the same way you would probably look at friends or relatives showing up for an overnight stay in your spare bedroom.

I was just there, and was told that if you are not getting work done, they will charge $10.00 per night. Free if they are working on your AS.

Doug, price is steep but worth it if they catch any issues before they get out of control. Thank you

Just got the new tires on the Jeep. Now all I need is one more check to clear and I can hit the road.

I just got new tires in April in anticipation of our September trip to the mother ship. I've put 3,000 miles on my new tires.

Yeah, I was thinking you should have kept your reservations until the time got here and you didn't have a trailer.
You will probably own a trailer before rally time. I would have said nothing and surprised everyone by showing up with a new rig unannounced.

I've done that before. It was a surprise, especially since they had canceled the rally...
