Default 1st Trip with our Hi Lo tomorrow

We purchased our 2208t 2 weeks ago and have been working hard on it ever since. Full led conversion, Bumper tool box rebuilt, Digital thermostat, ran 6 gauge wire from trailer battery to tv battery, back up camera, greased and lubed cables and a bunch of other little things. Time to take her out now, so were heading to the kern river and will spend 5 days there. We are going to a full hook up site(felt it was best for 1st time out)Wish us luck and I will post pics after the trip. No rain expected but it will be 28 to 31 over night each night. Should be beautiful and lots of fun.

Best of luck and have lots of fun. Any questions, just ask when you can. Check with the campground host to see if they have a wi-fi area to stay in touch.

Hope you have a great time on the Kern. We were up there last month at Headquarters Campground and it did get cold. Several years ago we were there when it snowed. Now, I think it is time we start staying in a campground with full hookups.

Default Have a great maiden voyage.

I'm sure your TLC will pay big dividends for you. We are here if you have any questions. When I camp in cold weather I put draft stoppers all around the door,shower and refrigerator. Mine are homemade with bath towels and I filled them with white beans. I made one so heavy I can hardly lift it. Lots of tips on the internet for what to fill them with. In our 25ft. Classic the BR gets a little chilly. A small cube heater works great. Smart move to camp with full hook ups. Check and make sure your vents are fully open. After many years we discovered our vent in the BR wasn't fully open.

make sure you regularly lube top pulleys that is where the moisture seems to gather and the cable rusts over the pulley. just had all four cables replaced and found all were rusted where they go over the top pulleys. i kept all pulleys lubed regularly but didn't help when the wire finely gave out over the top pulleys
where exactly do you store your tv battery and inverter
my next project will be getting solar panels on the roof.
I have a 2009 22ft towlite and love it

Hi
Sounds like you're lucky. Our 2308C had innumerable issues due to a leaky roof which resulted in roof rot as well as hoist cables rusting. Bought ours in 2010 and have done work every year correcting the problems. Oh yes the brake cables had to be replaced as the conductors broke from improper suspension fatigue. First sign of a leaky roof was wallpaper wrinkles.
More than happy to assist with advice if needed. chris 416 221 4504
