Our trailer is thirty years old and any RV that old needs service. 

In a few weeks we are heading down to my sister's place for a family party and need to have certain systems working properly. Our propane heater won't light so I took it apart, cleaned the ignition sparker, blew out the lines and still no improvement. Guess a new one is needed as taking it to a repair facility would cost more than buying a replacement.

Cleaned the stove top and blew out the gas lines and now the burners work on the stove. At least Mary can fix her morning coffee. 

Checked the water pump and cleaned out the antifreeze from the lines.  Just need to fill the water tank before we leave.

Trailer lights work and brakes activate when needed so I think we are ready to roll. 

Looking forward to seeing everyone in a few weeks.

Safe travels everyone.
