WOW!  You did a great job on fixing your "lemon".  I just read this whole thread and followed your repairs.  AWESOME job!  It looks perfect!  I went and looked at a camper a while back at that same dealership, although it was a new one.  Ended up buying out of state because they had exactly what I was looking for.  What part of Georgia are you in?  I live just northeast of Athens and have a deeded membership to Mountain Lakes Resort near Cleveland.

Congrats! Where are you going for your first outing? If I might make a suggestion, spend a couple of nights "camping" at home. That way, you can run in the house and grab whatever you learn that you forgot to pack. Make a list of those things so you can pick up replacements when you are next on a shopping trip. ENJOY that trailer. You have earned it!!  :D

Thank you, we plan a dry run close to home, I have checked everything to see if it operates as it should. The A/C, fridge on gas and electric, hot water tank on gas and electric and furnace. The water pump work but makes a spraying sound like its blowing water out somewhere ? Its near the pump and I may have to remove the panel hiding it under the bathroom sink, but  I don't see any water. I checked the wheel bearings and they have fresh grease????? but ignoring the leaks????

How does your freshwater system sound when hooked up to city water?

Really there isn't much time to relaxThat's why it took me as long to fix the camper as it did , I  squeezed it in around all the rest .We have a small farm with horses and there is always something that needs fixed or just regular maintenance, heck I got 3 acres to mow just around the house and all the stuff I have is old. So there is not much rest, but I believe I will be on this earth a little while longer than if I was wasting away on a porch

That's the first thing I checked, I could not hear or see any leaks . It makes the spraying sound only when the pump is running. Shouldn't it should off automatically  once everything is pressurized?

Thank you, I'm really not that far from you, I live between Washington and Lincolnton, GA. I'm about 6 miles from one entry spot for lake Thurman.

Yes it will shut off when it reaches a preset setting inside the pump.

Then you most likely have a water leak unless the pressure switch in the pump is broken.

Is the water tank gravity fill only or is there a valve that diverts the city water to fill the tank?  If there is a valve when left in "fill" pump will run continuously with no pressure build up. 

Don't ask how I know that !   ;D ;D

No it has a separate fill cap like a gas tank.

The pump turns out to be fine, did not have much water in the tank and it was sucking some air. This is thespraying water sound I heard, I filled the tank and it work as it should  Also I put the final corner cover on and was going to grease the axels but they all had fairly new grease. Go figure it was rotting away yet they greased the axels

At some point in the near future you should repack the bearings.  New grease pumped in doesn't mean the grease is good where it counts.

It looks like it has been repacked, they even supplied new dust covers🙂

I am completely rebuilding Class C over cab bunk.  Can yo tell me, how to modify the exterior front corner trim, to make it wider so that it doesn't leak again.  Thanks!

You would be better off starting a new thread rather than piggyback on this one.
I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly.

I can't believe someone is asking me for advice on repairs, some how I've fooled all of you in to thinking that I know what I'm doing😃

The pictures you posted above are worth thousands of words. And as for asking you for advice, well, you are miles ahead of those of us who have not taken on the task that you completed. Give yourself a little credit.

^X2^ You have done a great deal more than most of us. Give yourself a LOT of credit. You did a fantastic job on your trailer.

I wpuld not have even started the repair if it were not for the  support I found here. A lot credit goes to you all😁 Thanks again for helping me through this it has been hard mentally and physically. It still stings they way I got taken but it is on me for being so naive  😞 But I got a lot of exercise and found a lot of new friends here .

Way to go. You will sit around some day and laugh about it. As stated, you are now a big step ahead of someone else in the same situation. Pass along what you have learned. Thats what makes these forums work. We all share what we know, and ask what we dont. Cheers and happy camping.

When I saw the thumbnail picture, it looked like there was a giant hole in the side of your trailer. My heart sank. I was relieved when I opened the picture to find it is the awning. That is fixable, and although you have been through so much already, you know you can fix it. I guess this is why people say that our "stuff" owns us...always demanding attention. FWIW, I use our awning very little, because I have have had problems with wind dismantling it. I never go to bed with the awning deployed. You'll get through this repair and find that it is easy compared to what you have already done to your trailer. Godspeed, my friend.
