We got the trailer hauled up onto the RV drive this afternoon in order to flush the tanks and start getting it ready for a trip in the near future. We were not able to get it up on the drive because of a sudden drop off where flash flood waters had eroded the dirt road last July 18th and one more occasion in August.
Last week, we arranged for a local construction guy to do some road repair for us today that would bring the dirt level up to the driveway. We also asked him to reinforce a place on the south lot where a large mesquite tree was in danger of toppling due to erosion. We had some boulders on the south lot that would provide reinforcement when packed against the affected area and covered with dirt.
Once the road was repaired, we hitched up the trailer and brought it up to the hookups so we could get started with the tasks needed to get ready. We flushed out the black tank and will prepare it for the next use. Next, we will top off the fresh water tank, pour a little bleach into the gray water tank and take the propane tanks down the road to refill them.
We’ve developed a checklist of things that need to be done before our trip. Many of those things were checked off today. Clickable image.
