Replaced the awning motor on our 2010 Fuzion 383 with a new one off Ebay. $145 including shipping beat the heck out of most other places. Works like a champ.

Also found a soft spot in the beavertail so pulled the rubber mat and checked. Water damage due to insufficient caulking at the vent in the wall. Had to remove about a 4 foot section, but luckily didn't get into the main floor, and only a little of the wall. Going shopping for parts tomorrow. 1 inch plywood is fairly hard to find around here.

And pulled the fuel pump to see why it refused to operate. We use it very rarely and that's probably the main reason.

Added backup lights to 2017 Coleman 300tq. I had already added marker lights to the bottom frame below the ramp door.
I found some nice surface mount Led's 18watt flood . I wanted surface mount because i did not want the lights hanging below the frame.
You will need a 7 Way wire harness on your truck and trailer. The center pin will be wired to the backup light on the truck.
On my trailer I only had 6 wires seen plus a metal residential type electrical box that was not waterproof. So I orderd a 7 Way 8' harness with junction box that is color coded.
I fused the yellow reverse light wire with a 5 amp fuse for a 3 amp draw. I did not run a relay.

The lights sit well on the bottom frame.

Finished repairs and a couple upgrades. Fixing the beavertail floor is all done, some water damaged wall bits replaced, replace the leaking, cracked overhead vent/fan with a new one, found some contact paper that may replace the chewed places our bunny contributed to the camper [emoticon], replace the overhead 20 watt halogen puck lights with LED's.

I'm very happy with the new LED puck light bulbs. I had to modify the puck housing by removing the reflector/heat shield, and putting in the LED's. Since they shine straight down only, I didn't need a reflector, and they put out a lot more light and no heat. Really brightens the place up.

Finished day 3 of getting my new one customized. We bought a Forest River Wolfpack 23pack15 on Monday and have spent the last few days getting everything loaded up and some of the little things completed. Waiting on a couple TV swing arm mounts but have all the keyholders, new shower head, cabinets stocked, towel and toilet paper holders hung along with a lot of purging of stuff we didn't need. First Trip is Thursday so more to complete but I'll post some pics when we get back of the modifications and us using it.

Oh and the golf cart should be ready to pick up before we go Thursday so ought to be fun!

Hope your travels are safe and the friendships made camping are lasting.

1L243, very nice job on the backup lights. I like that a lot. Wish I had those when trying to maneuver in the dark!

Today I wiped up water from the leaking roof, pulled the wet bed out and wrote an email to the manufacturer to get yet another warranty issue resolved.

I can't believe my luck is this bad.

Oh no! You have a ATC 8.5x28FB right?

Yep. Got up on the roof today, found multiple points where water is making its way inside.

Supposed to rain good this next week. Not sure what I can do before the repair facility can take the trailer.

The list of repairs continues to grow.

Sorry to hear that, I thought that ATC had built a better unit, guess that's not the case. I'd get a tarp up there asap. For a quick temp patch duct tape or better yet try Gorilla Tape. For a longer fix Etranabond can do the trick, but without knowing where it's coming in and if you have an appointment I'd tarp it for now.
