Projects: Rockguard; Docking lights
Making some progress. Coach is in the shop but I could get some items ready to go.
Painted the LED lights I picked up for docking lights. Will be two each side. Using where Newmar docking lights are typically located as a guide and putting one near each wheel. Painted them Sunlit Sand as they will be mounted where that is the color. Pics of black plastic surround and then painted, hoping to minimize the impact of having these attached to the coach.
Also assembled the rock guard now need to install the shackles in the bottom of the frame and the top of the attachment bar. Will use a closed ring to connect them which should let the rock guard float a bit at speed or if I drag it.
Also had emptied two compartments and between coats of paint reorganized the "stuff" to eliminate what really wasn't necessary (reducing weight a bit) and repacked tighter to open up some space.
Didn't do all this alone. Wasn't going to mention that....but my helper crew insisted and so I posted a picture of them as well. I had to wait for them to pose in the garage entrance to the house. Took them 10 minutes to get into a position they thought was okay. (The red one on the right is Miss Vivian who is definitely an RV dog. Went with us on our two long trips, Savannah and Dallas.)
Gary, Cindy, Reacher (Maine Coon), and Vivian (in spirit only now).
