I adjusted my TT brakes and took it for a test drive. They work great. I also installed a vent cover. That has been on my short list for some time. It will be nice to be able to leave the vent open and the exhaust fan running in the rain. Last year I installed a Vortex 2 upgrade. I love the intake/exhaust option and the greatly improved airflow vs the original useless little fan that came in the TT.

Topped off the battery water yesterday. It took about 1/4" (~1/2 cup h2o per cell) to set the level halfway between the top of the plates and the bottom of the fill tube.

Another poster mentioned adjusting the brakes. Good idea. I think I'll add that to my "to do" list.

I towed mine out of the shed today !... To remove some farm equipment that was behind it. Then I put it back in the same place. I'll be to busy with farm work to do anything else for awhile.

Brought mine home Saturday.
Finished up my new center console install.
Installed new LED awning lights
Tilted my sleeper sofa back 1” so we aren’t sliding off of it anymore.
Inspected my roof and resealed a couple areas.
Installed my tablet/IPad holder on the dash for my dash command app.
Started my blue ray player install above the TV, I’ll finish that up this week
Still need to get my tool box installed. I got tired of lugging around a tool bag.
And hopefully during the week I can get my LED light strip mounted under the RV.
On my list is to install a couple power vents in my curb side storage bay to vent the heat from it in the summer. I have a fridge in there and between that and the heat from the power train the compartment gets very hot!

Long range mods are a remote awning kit and a hardwired surge protector.

Lwiddis...I can't seem to reply in a normal fashion...software issues, it seems...

I have lots of room underneath, so that shouldn't be a problem. Some straps and bingo. I will have a spray-on insulation applied to prevent freezing. Intake will have to be a hole in the RV skin...too bad...and a KISS method of transfer out. A couple lengths of hose stored away and a drill powered water pump. A spigot of some kind under the tank...connect the hoses and pump and hey presto..


Gary

Just a suggestion: A hose from your new tank to the winterizing valve (if your RV has one); then no drill pump needed. Another option, buy a spare water pump that matches the one in your RV; that way you will always have a spare with you if needed.
