Default Hi Everybody

Hi Everybody!
I am new to this forum. I just bought a 27 ft, hilo towlite. We are trying to get it ready for a long trip to Wisconsin in July. Going to take it on a dry run for a weekend here in Florida first. I did notice that the bottom of the door is crooked and the sealed between the top and bottom door have gaps. Any suggestions on how to resolve that? I see gaps in corners here and there as well. I would like to make sure we are moisture and bug free.
I would appreciate any input.

Thanks!
Jackie

Welcome to the forum. Sounds like you made need a cable adjustment.

Make sure you have the trailer level and check the door. Good luck.

Welcome, sounds like you guys are headed to Oshkosh. We have plans to go there in 2017 right after we retire. Enjoy and have fun.

I will get the trailer level. That may be the issue. I parked it on uneven ground but do not have the jacks down. I know that they are just to stabilize.
Thanks!

Yes we are! My first time to the airshow. I can't wait. Nothing like combining two loves (airplanes and camping).

Airshow, welcome to the forum! where in Florida are you? We have a pretty busy schedule till July and at the end of July we're off again. If you're close by Bonita Springs/Naples area, maybe we can shake hands a check our units out. This weekend is the Tampa area, just off I4, but only for a day. Let me know, and welcome again.

How un-level is the trailer?. A little off should not matter much if you are noticing "gaps" all along between top and bottom. I agree with Mr Creyes that a cable adjustment may be in order. Yes- get level- then measure all four corners from the bottom of the top half to the bottom of the bottom half. It should be relatively close all around.

I have never camped at the air show but I have been by it plenty. That is a huge open expanse they camp on and I'm not sure aboiut hook-ups. So- make sure your battery systems etc are up to snuff.

Rick
