Wheww!!!!

OK. Thanks everyone for giving advice and helping me care for my baby, my first TT. I was a little scared leaving the cord just out upside down, but I guess that wasn't too bad. Now to get the dry lubricant. We leave on our first trip this Monday for 6 days. Just bought a crapload of essentials to just get by for the week. I'm sure all get more stuff tailored to our camping style as we go.

Another item I'm looking into is mice, flying insects, and ant protection while camping and when stored outside in a paved fenced in lot. Any thoughts?

Thanks again everyone. Stress level is at a manageable level now. I'll be sure to pass on what I've learned to others in need.

Should I create a new thread or go to a different forum for the pests question?

Just get a gallon bottle of what ever outdoor insect control and spray around all the ground contact points of your trailer after you set up. No biggie !

Better to start a new thread. The only warning is careful where you spray because you have a number of potential ignition sources and bug spray can be highly flammable. A fridge running on propane has an open flame inside behind a cover and your water heater also gets incredibly hot and can also run on propane with an open flsme.

Spread the dry granulated insect control stuff found at your local hardware store around and under the trailer for storage and camping. I do, and I can tell during a weekend camping trip if I didn't put it out when I arrived.

For the tongue there really is no need to cover it with anything, we have a ball lock on ours is all.
For the pigtail I just tucked it up under the propane cover in between the tank and plastic

As for the jacks we had that question as well. Wasn't mentioned in the short or long term storage checklist in our owners manual and no one else on the lot had theirs down so we just left them up. I suppose it doesn't matter one way or another as there really is nothing to be damaged.

and for the vents we just taped a bit of thin pink insulation foam to the back of the covers to keep bugs out

Don't put it in the dog's food, sprinkle it around. Never bothers my dog.
