First... make a set of Awning poles (using OldCoots brackets). I'm about finished with the design and have preliminary parts on order.
Second... Make a new outdoor table that attaches to the side of my TT. The furnished table is only about 15"w x 15 deep. Looking to make it 30" x 15". Still in design phase.
Third... maintenance.

Just bought our 2010 Sandpiper 345RET last July and took a few months to decide what I wanted to do to it. Whoa!!!!
1. Finish installing stabilizers I fabricated over winter (see my albums)
2. Finish installing step stabilizer I fabricated over the winter (see my albums)
3. Order and install 30" telescopic stabilizer jacks in front of the front axle
4. New set of PowerKing Towmax tires (should be in at the tire shop tomorrow)
5. Check brakes while wheels are off
6. Repack bearings while wheels are off
7. Lexan on screen door
8. Carpet on outside steps
9. Dauber screens on furnace, water heater and fridge vents
10. Repair carpet binding on front slide
11. Build small luan platform to support foam when sofa air mattress is inflated so pillows do not fall between wall and mattress
12. Bolt down sofa (Am I the only one whose sofa is not secured to the slide?)
13. Create some way to hold folding chairs in place in main storage bay
14. Build storage in front bay. (My man cave)
15. Light, 110v & 12v receptacles in front storage
16. Find dresser and install in washer/dryer space
17. Fish power cable from pinbox to the power/converter panel (transport 2 Honda eu2000i gens in bed of truck to keep FW cool when we go to SD in July)
18. Install gen/shore power switch adjacent to panel
19. Install pullout trashcan under sink.
20. Whatever updates and/or organizers momma wants in the kitchen
20. Get with local DMV officer and have FW and TV completely weighed by tire
21. Once spring really breaks...normal spring clean up, de-winterize, check all caulking and check & seal top.

HOLY COW, first time I've actually listed it all out...once the weather warms a bit, I'm gonna be living in the shed working on it.

Hey OC, think I could talk you in to coming up here and giving me a hand?

Drop off old (well 1 year old anyway) TT, pick up new 5er - Easter all being well.

Switch stuff from TT into the CC.

Test fly the Creek then figure out what I need for a 5er that I didn't have in the TT.

Convince a friend or neighbour they need to travel to the. US so I can order what I need from CW and get it shipped to the friend so they can bring it back to AB without having to pay huge amounts of shipping/import fees.

Completely wax new rig

Learn to tow/reverse and park it.

If/when summer does arrive drive to WA coast for so,e whale watching

You are apparently confusing the month of March with spring.

Not in any particular order.

After the snow clears from in front of the storage building-

Wash & wax-
Get furnace repaired (under warranty)-
Hang full length mirror-
Check on wheel clearance with the underbody (Windjammer, possible problem)-
Scrub carpet-
A rainy day campin' is better than a sunny day workin'.

'14 Ram 3500 w/6.7 Cummins
