Today I changed the oil in the Onan. For the first 20 hour service. What a pain in the rear. I have an I-beam right on the edge of the oil flow line as it leaves the drain. Oil went everywhere!! I thought it would clear... Not so much!

Changed out all of the vent knobs to the ones with the "D" ring on the end. It was a pain to lug around a stool to reach the 8.5ft ceiling. Now we use the rod.. Way easier.

Fooled around trying to figure out where all the splitters are on the camper. Trying to install an AB switch for the Tailgater. Ended up deciding to leave all alone and run a separate cable to the receiver from under the forward storage compartment and just install a new jack on the curb side. We wifi all of the tv's so giving up on the original plan of the AB switch really wasn't that big a deal.

Not sure if everyone has seen a bucket light. Pretty cool concept. I found an LED bulb for ours with a remote control for turning it on/off instead of unplugging every time. Also started scouting out where all the wires are to change out the LED strip on the camper to a multicolor or single color strip. Ours is so bright it attracts every bug in the county.

Well.. After realizing I couldn't splice into the cable for the Tailgater without finding the splitter up the line, I decided a different approach.

I drilled a hole in the night stand to feed the dish receiver from the Tailgater, then ran it down into the forward storage compartment. Installed exterior cable jack. From the receiver I have an Actiontec wifi transmitter that pushes the 3 other tv's we have to their own separate wifi receivers. So now all 4 tv's can display the satellite signal. Just all have to be on the same channel. Cable and digital antenna are still intact on the 3 interior tv's.

Picked up camper from the roof repair place for the second time since the storm. They had not seated the antenna very well and was still leaking. Should be all set now.

Also installed RGB lights at the awning this evening.

The cabinet shelving is a great idea. I just got a Nitro and have the same cabinet. Where did you get the shelving material?

Thanks
