Well today I unhooked the trailer back at home. Was a great long weekend. Unfortunately with busy work weeks ahead I tend to think we are done for the winter. Little guy starts school this week and our schedules don't match up for days off.

Looks good R! When closed, do they try to lift the door? If so, you should consider Phlip-It latches on those overhead cabinets. I can't remember what unit you have, but on the pantry doors, too if like mine

I noticed you have two lights on your slide ceiling. I only have one (sad).

You should add your equipment to your signature line, helps others.

no they spring the other way and tighten up the door to help keep it closed...when I looked at them I had the same thought.....very happy with them...and they were as cheap as the spring parts I would have had to buy for the other fix.....

Thats cool R, better than I thought. You know thinking about it, many RVs came with something like these as standard equipment. A little thing taken for granted, but very convenient. Thanks for the pics.

Okay, so I worked a little on Sunday. I put up the Smart Tile in kitchen and bathroom and also added a couple of LED strips in the bath. There on sale for $4.99 from Wayfair, but not sure I would deal with them. took 11 days to get them. Also, if you want to send them back they gouge you with what you would have spend to have it shipped... not so free shipping. I thought they were wrong since pictures show slight difference, but found out how they work. They have a metallic layer which makes the translucent vinyl look like glass or stone (a mixture) it is paper thin in the grout lines and maybe 1/8"
on the fake glass / stone. Looks very realistic. The look of tile with the whole deal weighing less than a panel of stone or glass backsplash.

I took off the FR fake-o tile paper in the kitchen and lots of glue left on wall, so I wiped down with a rag dampened with TSP. Then rinse with water twice. As tile went up in that first section, I wasn't sure it was sticking good, so for the heck of it I added more tile on another wall only wiping with a little soap and water. Seemed better. Anyway, its done and if its not laying on the counters tomorrow, I'm good to go.

The LED in bathroom: I wired to BR switch and fished all along the outlets / panels only having to drill through one "stud" if you can call a 1-1/2" X 2" spruce a stud. Anyway, went well.

I'm sitting here with pictures which I haven't been able to upload for week or more. I dropped the size jpg to 1.5 Mb and tried opening, taking a screen shot and pasting in .png. Nothing works. I'm thinking it could be my account or a site issue.But the common denominator is I use only my smart phone which I have deleted files and apps in an attempt to gain memory. Tomorrow I'll use my camera and see what happens.
