I have let Nancy know that I will no longer be doing the corporate donation give aways, too much going on for us now and need to turn this over to someone else. If anybody would be willing to take this over I will turn over the contacts and info over to them with the understanding that it is to be used ONLY for the Oregon Gathering and no other rally. I will still continue to post the donations on my website as they come in as long as the new organizer contacts me with the info or I can give them permission to update the posting themselves on the forum. Someone might as well collect and disperse these great corporate gifts or they will be lost! If interested you can contact me thru CasitaForum.com and click on the "Contact" button at the top of the forum.

Sure! That was a big hit last year. I'll put it on the calendar for Friday or Saturday and we can do a sign-up so you know how much of the supplies you will need.

Thanks, Kathy.

Ok this may be to late but how about a mini class on the ABC's of simple repairs?
I would of liked to have fixed my own hoses and put my own propane reg on myself and saved the labor costs.

I am planning to bring my portable scales and weigh trailers again.
I will change the way I do it:
Weigh axles the same as last year, while you are still hitched up before you go to your site on Thursday.

Weigh tongues differently: at your site, after you are set up. This may be more accurate; to place the scale directly under the hitch.

Good idea, Caroline. Would anyone be willing to do a Simple Repairs class? Hey Ian, didn't your Newbie's Workshop cover these types of things? Are you willing to do it again?

That's great Frederick! It was a big hit last year. Thanks!

Nancy

If people are still interested I would be happy to do the LED workshop again, but if anyone has an alternate suggestion . . . ?

Lee,
What kind of rolling gear are you talking about. The wheel bearing part is easy, but what other topics are you interested in? My bearings are about due for repacking anyway so I may take this one on. [b]Just let me know what else you were thinking. This applies to everyone else too! Maybe I could cover some ABCs of repair as well? Electrical issues even? You guys let me know. It's about time I give back to this great group of people for all the fun times I've had!

Eric

PS- Frederick, I can assist with the weigh in, again, if needed.

That would be AWESOME!
My plan for this year is to bring a 3rd digital readout scale for direct tongue weights. Axle weights will progress more quickly as we won't HAVE to weigh Tow Vehicles. (Unless people want to weigh the tow vehicle) Two people could weigh trailers in the parking lot, and a third person could meet the trailer at the campsite afterward when they unhitch to weigh the tongue.

As to the workshop I was thinking along the lines of information regarding axles (threads would seem to indicate they are somewhat of a problem ), perhaps tire recommendations ( not necessarily as to brand but specifics as to what is required for our trailers ), rim info etc.. I also think an electrical system component would be awesome! I am reasonably proficient at turning the lights on and off but at that point have exhausted my warehouse of electrical knowledge.
