Busy repairing and updating 2002 Aerolite Cub C215

Well have our first trip scheduled next weekend brought camera home to run water and check pipes Check electrical and TV antenna Plus I got 2 new scissor Jacks for front was missing a Light RV jack but wanted better stability so replaced 2 for now 2 more later on. Well hooked up to city water first time since we purchased last July well Toilet Valve was leaking and bad by time I got to door had a waterfall coming out the door . I think I damaged it unknowingly when I had a peace of 1/2 plywood I used for tv mount support fall and cracked it I wasn't aware I did It but $40 lesson learned. remainder of pipes good to go. Electric good TV antenna No I replaced coax on roof and checked all connections may just be location in my valley It's a new Winegard Razor Air antenna took the old wingman down . Even took the paneling out behind fridge cabinet to check connections seemed ok now need new peace paneling my utility knife went on a rampage . Got 2 stabilizer's installed only took awhile to drill through the harden steel frame just 2 holes . Now all I need to do is inventory supplies and give it a cleaning in and out. wife doing linens . enough for today.

Sounds like you have it under control. A little work beforehand can save a vacation. Have fun and congratulations again.

Very nice looking trailer! Would it be wrong for me to ask what you paid for it? Dealer or private party?

Wow, you got a great deal! With your initial investment so low, its less painful when you have the inevitable issues. Nice job.

Nice looking unit there! I had to quit buying "projects"... not home enough to work on them AND stay ahead of the maintenance on a 40 acre spread. I am typically on the road 3-4 days a week, more during the summer months.
