Although we have had the trailer to the dealer a couple of times this summer, we still want to run the generator on a regular basis. This being the last Friday of the month, it was time for the generator event to show up on the calendar. Since the generator is still in the truck, it was just a matter of driving across the road and connect to it.
The batteries were pretty well charged since we had the trailer on the road last week for a couple of hours. The batteries get charged from the truck while underway, so I only ran the generator for an hour or so.
I did a couple of maintenance things in the trailer; the black water holding tank still is about ⅓ full due to a couple of uses since it was last drained in Palm Desert early this month. I added some deodorizer/tank conditioner to the black tank and flushed a couple gallons of water from the white tank into it. There was also some minor clean up and sweeping out needed.
The plan is to get the approach to the RV driveway built back up to the point where we can pull the trailer up to the hookups and flush the tanks then. There is also the matter of getting the overhanging branches from the mesquite tree removed along the RV drive.
After the planned excursion next month, the trailer will again be towed up to the hookups and will be prepared for some family guests to stay in it while they’re here (we have a pretty small house, and a couple of families may show up and the trailer sleeps six).
