Much better to get them as close to vertical as possible and even better is to reinforce them.

As usual, you have a better idea OC 😜😃

I have a boatload of Lynx blocks now that we have the Anderson levelers, so I think I will do as you did!

We are going to try to go out on a working camping trip this weekend to install the awning supports...might be able to fit this mod in as well

One of our led lights above the bed doesn't work. How do you remove the bulb, l'd like to test the socket to see if it has power or the bulb is bad.

Hello, the lamps are a twist to remove. Push in and turn anti clockwise. Just checked the one above my head.

Hole in bathroom floor is a laundry chute and some have mods for a hanging laundry bag in the basement and a fitted cover for the chute. I a going to craft a sliding cover so I can open it up, toss in laundry, and slide it shut. Thinking of putting railed around the edge to keep stuff from tipping when I slide the cover open 😀

What slide covers are you talking about? Outside slide covers? Your 8289WS/Diamond is already equipped 👍

You DO know about your outside TV don't you? 😏
The whine from the refer is from the fan venting the rear coils. I changed ours out to two high quality 12v computer fans. So very quiet now.

I'm okay with the doors on the opposite side of the sink because of the various reasons stated. I'm not sold on the laundry chute. That's the side where we keep the box to hold the sewer hose and I think dropping laundry down there would be a pain. I just keep the basket in the shower.

I was talking about covers that would go from the roof of the camper to the edge of the slide when it was extended. To help keep twigs off of the slides. I know there are covers for the awnings.

Yes I DO know there is an outside TV. We purchased the winegard satellite with a Dish receiver. Unfortunately the receiver we purchased does not have coax out and you have to use the component (3 color) cord to hook into the camper. The tv that is mounted inside the camper doesn't have HDMI on the sides so that isn't an option. I'm not sure how we are going to get satellite to play in the bedroom or the outside hookup. Will have to find a cord that will convert component to coax. I wish I would have researched the receiver a little more before purchasing. Hindsight is great, isn't it?
