Our camping season is officially done, here are my projects before we head out again:

Coat hangers for entry closets
Shoe racks for entry closets
Mirror on back of closet door in bedroom ( my wife is vertically challenged, and has trouble with the height of the bathroom mirror)
Install the Onan 5500 thats been sitting in my garage for 3 months
Latch for cutting board drawer
Weld on a proper hitch for our bike rack
Various other little projects as I think of them or find inspiration.

Lenny, sounds like you have some good projects. If you come on down to TX, we camp year round

Texas is on our list of destinations! We are certainly envious of your season, although I'm not sure how I would fare in your summers!

Even while camping, I'm still doing some upgrades. Every screw on the exterior, mostly on the slideouts, is being replaced with a stainless steel screw. Not only are the screws being replaced but the screw hole is filled with silicone before the stainless steel screw is screwed in.

That's an ambitious project. Any guess how many screws that will end up being?

I've already used a package of 100 and will need about 150 more. I'm using #10 x 1" ss screws. The ones I'm taking out are #8 x 1". On about 2 of the screws I took out, a little bit of water dripped out of the screw hole. It rained hard here the other day. I don't know why they don't seal the hole when they build the trailer and use better screws instead of the cheap screws that rust and break. It seems every rv mfg uses the same cheap screws.

Like most of you, I use a lot of electronics, especially when we snowbird.

In our 37FB the entertainment center is over the fireplace in the opposing slide out across from our recliners. The doors to the entertainment center are made of plexiglas. I have a router, printer, Tivo, digital adapter, Ooma, stereo receiver and cordless phone base in the compartments. Needless to say, heat is a problem.

At first I just left the doors cracked open and resting on their latches. But the heat caused problems for me stereo. I considered replacing the plexiglas with metal screen, but it was too uneven and didn't play well.

I did find replacement airconditioner filter material at Lowes for $1.97. The material is easily stretched and almost the same shade as the plexiglas. The size is perfect for the replacement. The plexiglas is removed by pulling the plastic wedges from the door. Laying the filter material over the opening, and starting with the longer wedges first, I installed the filters.

Heat is no longer an issue and according to 'she who must be obeyed', they don't look half bad either. Here's a pic.

Receiver hitch for bike rack is now wobble free!



Onan happy in its new home:



The curb side slide was hitting the kitchen island when fully retracted. This had loosened all the fasteners and it was quite wobbly. Ended up putting a 1/4" spacer under the island, now the slide has just enough room.



Ordered a two canister filter setup from https://www.rvwaterfilterstore.com to replace the KW1 I filled with antifreeze last fall. That is probably not going to be here till the end of the month though.

Looking for some inspiration for shoe storage in the front closet? Closet is 16 inches wide, 9 1/2 inches deep.

Ditched the MK1. Dual canister filtration setup from Rick at www.rvwaterfilterstore.com. Looking forward to better flow and better water.
