New Member getting ready for the season

Hello all. I have enjoyed lurking on the forum lately.

My trailer is not big or fancy but it suits us. In the last few days I have been doing a few things to get ready for our first outing since our Thanksgiving camping trip to Hood Canal. So far I have....

Installed a digital thermostat,
changed all the light fixtures to LED,
switched 12V battery to two 6V GC2 batteries,
added a battery cut off switch,
Added bike rack/spare tire carrier to the rear bumper.

One more week to get it un winterized and cleaned up for the road.

Sounds like a lot of great mods! And, the rig looks good too.

Thanks for the comments.

I'm getting ready to repack the bearings while the weather is nice this weekend (hope the grease seals I bought for E-trailer arrive on time) then a good washing inside and out and we are ready to go.
