Friday, December 1, 2017 - La Posa West, LTVA, Quartzsite, AZ, Day 16, 0 Miles, 3,253.8 Towing Miles For the Trip

I dragged myself out of bed and walked for coffee, although I had some aches & pains from crawling under the trailer. As I finished breakfast, I called and made reservations for the Scamp Christmas in Sedona rally next week. I wasn't sure I was going to go since it snowed the last time I did it, but the reports show good weather so why not take a break from Quartzsite.

After that it back to the grind. I used my ice chest & already read paperback books to prop the 5" fence post in position so I could mark the positions for the carriage bolt holes. Would have been easy with two people, but eventually I got it mounted. I did manage to reset my watch during the process of tightening the bolts (many, many 20° cranks on a 6" socket wrench inside the tube). I hope it just reset it. While it is only a cheap Timex, it does do a pretty good job of keeping accurate. All I have left to do is add the removable cover. For those that haven't seen the folding ladder, here are a couple of photos:

I got a call from RV Lifestyles that my awning end cap was in, so I drove over to pick it up. Wrong part. Mostly my fault - I called it an awning end cap, but the part I need is the end cap for the end arm of the awning. By the time the parts manager got back from picking up a trailer, it was too late to contact Dometic, so it will be Monday before I can get the price & availability of the correct part. I'll have to buy the end cap anyway so I'll have a spare...

Dinner was a Tri-Tip roast sandwich & chips. I was too lazy to fire up the stove to cook the rest of the asparagus. Hope it will keep until tomorrow. I fired up the water heater, so after posting this I'm heading for a very necessary shower.

Until Tomorrow -
