Relatively new to FG trailiering with our 16' Scamp
Spent from mid January to early April in it.
Will post a travel log a bit alter as still swamped with work.
The weather in Michigan actually got warm enough to be outside yesterday so I decided to replace the 2 (soft) Phillips head screws with nylock nuts that hold the propane
tank in place. They have bent and deformed from removing and reinstalling for the multitude of tank top ups.
When I removed the tank I noticed a lot of white crusty stuff under the plastic batter box.
Red flags went up as it smacked of corrosion.
I removed the retaining strap and cover for a peek.
YEP the + terminal was corroded green (copper) and was starting to mushroom with corrosion. The two mounting screws (similar Philips bolts to the trailer tongue) had leaked through. SO the bouncing along the road cased the battery
to leak some.
New maintenance check now after every trip.
I cleaned everything and painted the tongue area with black primer to prevent rust and this time sealed the bolt holes in the battery
box with silicon sealer.
This was not previously on my radar.
Live and learn
Guess yesterday was our summer in Mi. as it is supposed to snow and light
freeze again this week.
