Those look pretty sharp, Greg. We had the pry off white ones on the 19 and they stayed on well. A couple years ago somebody put a set of the white ones on the free tarp at the Mississippi rally. They had changed out the wheels for custom jobs and didn’t need them any longer. Somebody picked them right up.

Those look pretty neat ! Where did you purchase if I may ask ? Pat

Did you remove the center cap for access to ez lube? Your picture looks like it but the link shows solid center?

Jim: Before installing the press on covers you see in the picture, I had to remove each wheel, and remove the original center cover. So now to access the end of the axle (the ez lube access no doubt), I just pop off the cover. No need to remove the wheel any more.

I haven't greased the bearings or adjusted the brakes on the trailer yet, but plan to do so within a couple of weeks for the first time. Might there be a YouTube video instructing such?

These work great had them in my casita

We use 2 of these as well. Whenever it's hot and sunny, we put them outside to "recharge." Plugging in is optional (but faster) but I'd plug them in somewhere with lots of air movement like a garage!

Today it was really nice, 75 degrees and sunny. I opened each awning window gingerly and turned on the maxxfan. All opened fine except the forward bedroom. I plan to coat all the rubber window seals with "303" which I purchased as premoistened pads for ease of application.

303 is an amazing product, providing it is the same product we use on our whitewater boats. There is some amazing technology (I believe it was developed at NASA) behind it.

I use it on my $3,000 28" hypalon whitewater pontoons. I have a Grand Canyon boat. 16 foot and big! Lovely pontoons, which have saved a few people in Lava Falls!

303 is the only product I use on it and it comes out like new every time I pull those bad boys out at the boat dock!

$27 a quart, last time I checked.

Ah yes. Crystal Rapid and Lava Falls. And about 200 lesser rapids. Did a 21 day private, 3 16' oar boats 6 people, trip there for 210 miles there in the late 1980's. Great memories.

Today I washed my Ram and did some light waxing. I also washed Noelia's Subaru and gave the Horse a good washing. All 3 vehicles are clean and spiffy as is the Escape. What is that saying, All washed up and dressed with nowhere to go

I ordered my trailer a storage shed. Well, not for the trailer- for outside storage of stuff that I take that rides in the truck. Waiting to see if it is actually in stock as it was out of stock most places I looked.

I received my tiles and installed them yesterday. Exactly like yours. Thank you, Valerie, for the idea and info where to buy them.
