Update on the warranty items. AC was bad again, so it was replaced. They tried to do something with the sticky windows to no avail. They adjusted the slide out synch (left and right were not in step) and they said they adjusted the awning vinyl (I can't tell).

After this visit, Camper's Inn has zero "At-a-boys" left, they did so well on the previous two outtings, but this time they have a new service writer who dropped the ball... he didn't deliver when promised and didn't call me back (twice promised). He was noncommital on when they would have it ready, initially, and I gave him plenty of time and it still wasn't ready when promised. I wonder when it will sink in that a phone call and a status report is very important to a customer.

Installed a Happijack bed in the garage earlier this year. The 2" mattress it came with was laughable. Put in an 8" memory foam - very nice. I noticed the decorative sides were very flimsy and would easily snap off. So today I glued & screwed two 3x3's together and screwed them into the flimsy side and the bed bottom. Seems pretty stout now.

You meant 1x3s. Looks good Dave. I still have to original laughable mattress but the only thing I use the bed for is to store short flat things... like lawn chairs, tire covers, the US flag and pole. I don't know if I would go across country like this, since I would worry about something sliding off onto the bike. But, if I did something like you did, the rails could stop something from sliding forward and falling off.

I've thought about taking the bed down for head clearance and letting the AC vent (the most rearward) work better. I've also thought about adding a foam mattress... a double-minded man is the worst LOL!

WW,
One time, and never again, will I store anything on the bunk in the garage. One time I had put one of those white plastic folding tables up there & something else I can't recall right now, and when we got to the campground the table and ladder... That's what it was... A small step ladder... We're on the floor of the garage. Fortunately this trip we hadn't put the bikes in or I'd have been sick to no end. Would have had smashed fairings, fenders, bars, tanks, etc...
So from now on the only stuff that goes up there are the blankets & Pillows... Lol.
Btw... The travel route was I-78 in PA. Not a smooth road by ANY MEANS!

I'll keep that in mine RVB... only soft and light things up there for me.
But, if I can figure out where to stash it, I might take the entire bed down... or try to adopt some kids to get some use out of it ... NOT!

I store one of those white/plastic tables on my raised dinette in the garage. The two things I do to prevent it from fallen is - #1 there is a strap attached to the dinette for the supplied folding table. I make sure the table(s) are within the strap. #2 I place extra blankets/pillows/sleeping bags in-between the roof and the tables. This extra "friction" prevents the tables from moving.

I have not had anything fall yet but I will make sure I triple check in the future...
