    I am going to do the same on my Grand Design. Great video and I love the Flamingos in the video. I have Two Flamingos and just love them. Keep posting Jason. Take Care and happy glamping.

    So happy I found your channel. This was not boring at all. You did the right thing in caulking the screws. As an ex park ranger have seen a lot of campers with missing screws and parts about to fall off. Other campers would say that is the best thing to do. Anyway thank you for sharing your video.

    Not boring at all!, keep like vids coming please. It's been a yr do you need to repeat this maintenance?. I've had mine for near a yr and you've inspired me to do ours. Thanks ๐Ÿ’‹๐ŸŒˆ

    Thanks for the video! It just goes to show that full timing is a lot of work and not all fun and games. This is the real side along with all of the fun times the maintenance still has to be done. I appreciate you sharing your experience and knowledge with the rest of us. Safe travels!

    After watching this video i've gone around tightening screws on our new Laredo travel trailer. Thanks for the info.

    didnt read all the way down, but just so you know, Loctite (sp?) makes a great product for applying to screws to keep them in place and tight. It's like pipe dope, meaning you smear it onto the screw threads, then insert and tighten them all down. You might try that in future if you find the reports to be favorable. I love the stuff.
    keep up the vids and have fun.

    I just found your channel from the Getaway Couple this month. Jason & Rae recommended your channel & Iโ€™m not disappointed! I totally agree with your statement about not being tied down to producing a video on a schedule. Enjoy your life!

    I am catching up on all your previous videos. You are correct that a little preventive maintenance will keep your rig in great shape. I feel the same way.
    We have a 2017 GD Imagine that we purchased from the original owner, who found they didnโ€™t have the time to enjoy it. We have a permanent site next to my wifeโ€™s sisterโ€™s site. We are planning short trips but decided to spend this season getting the site landscaped & outfitting out TT.
    We are also on the GD Facebook page & you are correct thereโ€™s a wealth of information!
    Thank you for all your tips & I look forward to future updates!

    Hi… just found you guys! As an ex bartender/manager I'm looking forward to your drink recipes and all your info. Safe and happy travels!

    Great idea post when you can. Enjoy life! Even with my tiny channel, I feel like thatโ€™s all I do & I donโ€™t even edit ๐Ÿคช

    Glad you shared about the screws & caulking. Kind of scary that all those screws were loose! Yep!! Looks like at least a million screws

    Glad you ended the screwing, Iโ€™d fallen into that gutter, long before you๐Ÿ˜Š

    As much as I will miss your regular videos, I totally understand that you are enjoying your life rather than dealing with videos. Life is much more important than YT videos.

    So happy you are loving your new lifestyle! I totally agree on the making and posting videos when it feels right. When it becomes a โ€œjobโ€ or it feels that you must be on a schedule it just isnโ€™t the same. Good job on all that screwing! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

    ๐Ÿ‘Thanks for sharing. Wow, that a lot of work. Not boring at all. Good job, & helpful to know this. Shocking how so many screws were loose and that thereโ€™s so many areas where water can collect and cause issues. ๐Ÿ˜” We understand what you mean about being so busy & it being so much work to make & post videos. Iโ€™m sure youโ€™ll love your new permanent spot. Wishing you guys the best. ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿค—

    Imagine that, a gay guy who screws all day and brags how great he is with Cak, I mean CAULK, lol. Seriously though, It is so satisfying to watch someone do a task that is even more OCD than I am.

    Not boring at all! Itโ€™s very important to do your maintenance, and such a good feeling when it is all done. Looking forward to your partying, cocktail and cooking videos!

    Bwhahaha got a screw loose. But you know having a life and recording every second of it is important.. not to worry Iโ€™ll still hang out and wait for when ya do post. My wife and I have about three years before hitting the road, but when we do by watching all the videos we watch we hope to be a head of the curve ball by them, well somewhat. Lol

    Great video Jason! You did a great job on the initial preventative maintenance for the RV. More to come for sure and I love the orange dream drink – you did a video on that one right? Anyway – love the new RV and look forward to your videos on whatever schedule works for you. Congrats on your channel growth. You are catching up to me. lol

    New sub here, loving your channel. Great information, thank you. Hubby and I just bought a new to us fifth wheel, and passed down our old fifth wheel to our kids. We are helping them remodel their old rig, and I found your remodel vids fun and helpful. I am glad you and hubby are enjoying your new relaxed lifestyle, I will stick around and enjoy a new vid whenever you feel inspired to share with us. You post quality vids, quality is more important than quantity. Canโ€™t wait to see you ideas for landscaping.

    I'm with you on the camera comment you made. Often it's more important to just enjoy yourself and not worry about video content. A personal life is more important than YouTube.

    This was interesting! I need to check screws. ๐Ÿ™‚ You need to enjoy making the videos so do what you need to do. We will still be looking forward to your videos! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think that was a great idea that will really pay off. Also, take care of the roof by inspecting and washing every couple of months. I have a guy come every 3-4 months and wash & wax my rv. Additionally, every year Iโ€™ll caulk on the roof where the ac, vents etc are located. The FL sun will be tough on it. Iโ€™m going to miss you guys but understand you are very busy. Take care and Iโ€™ll continue to subscribe! Hi Ziggy ๐Ÿถ

    WHAT?
    NO DAILY VIDEOS?
    HOW COULD YOU? ๐Ÿ˜‚
    I am glad you are enjoying life, that is so important.
    Just a thought….
    To make it less work for you (and so I can get my glamper guy fix) maybe you could just setup ur camera and video your daily life then edit before you post online. It should be alot less work than the organized videos and I wont need to get counseling. (JK)๐Ÿ˜‚
