About to go

A check this am shows only 4 sites left. That is down 2 from the last check, so hopefully they went to some of our buds. If you know of any that are coming, that aren't on the map already, let us know.

Summer possums are the fattest, they have a whole lot more stuff to dine on.

Sandpaper,

Seen a bunch of their cousins still wearing their half shells on the big roads.

Brad,

Keeping your recent "luck" in mind, just don't collect it with your truck grill.

We'll have a pit crew ready and check to see if you're coming in on 3 wheels or the more traditional 4 wheels.

But seriously, this hits on an easy topic to assist folks with checking lug nut torque. We can assist. Also can check trailer ball nuts for torque. Yup, can cover it.

sounds good to me

Being a hands on, tool nut, make a better mouse trap, fix it even tho it doesn't really need fixin' kind of guy, a maintenance oriented rally always excites me. We just need to be sure we have something entertaining for the ladies to do.

Torgue wrench for the guys, margaritas for the gals.

Only 3 sites left in the park.

A maintenance session sounds fabulous to us newbies. We need to learn so much!!! Hope to get our new axle in this month & finish the flooring soon after. We'll be aluminum tenting most likely.

Is this the largest one, yet, John?

I think we're going to need a bigger park.

We ca cover torque wrenches.

One other sorta easy overlooked item is the condition of the 7 way plug. Just take a look at the connectors, damaged, badly corroded terminals ain't too good.

Need help replacing yours?

I'll be packing my 300 lb-ft torque multiplier/wrench....
I stopped at 50, 100, and 200 miles after fitting my new wheels to check torque thanks to Brad's experience. I settled on 125 lb-ft for my 16" Sendels. Some maintenance/repair seminars would be cool for this newbie too.

I'll have my eyes open on the way up for some fresh 'Dillo for the bog.

Al

Maggie, until the "sleepers" fess up and turn the black trailers on the map to silver, hard to say what the final count will be. We had 55 back in March, the record so far.

Gonna start with the basics for the maintenance seminars:
Rubber side down, shiny side up
the pointed end is the end you hook up to
clear water goes in here, dark water goes out there
hot on the left, cold on the right, s*** won't run up hill
.................

John
