I washed the bugs off the front from our last trip, treated all the wood surfaces even though they are new and will wax it for the 3rd time since last November. We love our 19.

What makes you think it was a mouse? Mine are much older, but the foam backing does disintegrate. Vinyl gets hit by stones and foam pays.

What have I done? Does hyperventilating count? I keep telling myself Ten Forward is safe... haven't been to the storage yard since last Sunday. Can't wait to get that 5er home! Two more months, two more months (my mantra). I'm jealous looking at great pics, etc. ! ! !

I've been having some towing issues lately with my WDH on my 2010 Honda Pilot so over the last three days I removed 440 lbs of unnecessary weight from the trailer (from 4120 to 3680), 180 lbs off the tongue weight (from 600 to 420) ending ratio of 11.4%...and removed the WDH hardware from the trailer. I also ordered a pair of custom built coil springs for the Pilot designed for the weight of the truck loaded for camping + tongue weight. No more WDH. I expect them in about 4 weeks. I cleaned her up like a new penny and covered her for my next adventure in September; Jalama Beach for 3 days camping with the California SCABs and some fly fishing for corbina and halibut in the surf.

You can see the outline of the teeth marks on the foam .

You crack me up! I look forward to meeting you at Jalama. I hope you plan on catching enough fish for all of us.

Yes, those varmints can make a mess out of your engine compartment also.

This is what my rock guards look like at the back after six years.
I think that's just the result of sitting in the hot sun, being exposed to water and being pounded by rocks.

Had the disagreeable task of waiting in line for over an hour amidst other returning long weekend campers in order to use the local dump station.
