I have an analog voltage monitor that I keep plugged into a kitchen outlet. I watch this fairly closely to make sure I don't get myself into trouble.

It the trailer umbilicle 10 gauge?

Umbilical Gauge

I just checked the service manual for the 345. Amazingly, no guage is given for the actual umbilical, neither is it embossed on the actual cable sheath.

The manual did, however, indicate that 10 ga. wire was used for the jumper from the umbilical reel connection to the main breaker box.

I'm going to be visiting my storage location this weekend to move the Classic. Apparently I parked in the wrong spot. I'll check the gauge out and also look at my extension. Hopefully I will find them both 10.

Gloves for Sewer Hook-ups

Don't forget a box of latex gloves for hooking up and dis-connecting your sewer hoses. We also like to have a few "Mike's Hd. Lemonades" handy!

We bought a small double step ladder so we can reach the awning hold downs. I got tired of using that long rod to unscrew the hold downs. It's a lot easier just to stand on the ladder and screw/unscrew them by hand.
