Finished off the paverson the back of the RV pad and installed cinderblocks for a "patio and walkway" on the front of the pad...had to go to work today to get a rest from all that manual labor

*Grumble* STILL do not have enough room to install OC's Awning support poles...guess I will be working at the campground this week when we head out for the 4th

Installed the Oxygenics Body Spa shower and a screen door cross handle. Purchased the materials to McGiver a sewer hose storage compartment that will hold the Rhinoflex.

Last weekend I found the breakaway wires chopped in two, I'm guessing pinched between the bed and pin box. As I was camping I twisted them together and taped them up.

So I properly fixed that, rerouted the wires through a bolt hole in the pinbox, then I moved the junction box up to the next brace as it hung too low. Now it looks really neat and clean.

Then I dug out an old female 7 pin terminal, jumped the green and black terminals. That bridges the power feed to the running lights, now at night I can plug that into my cord and turn the running lights on. Might look cool, might be silly. I'll find out in a few weeks.

I mash a fuse to bridge the "top" 2 pins on the 7-pin connnector for the same effect. I'm still on the fence for "might look cool, might be silly". But, I do seem to be able to find the camper at night a little easier.

Many of us here do that and it looks good at night. I just mounted the plug on my tongue (that normally would be on the TV) and it keeps the plug from getting dirty also. Just plug it in half way for storage or all the way for lights.

Glad you mentioned a fuse, it hit me this morning that the circuit breaker for the charging line is probably a lot hotter than the lights need, I'll be adding a 10A fuse to my little rig.

I like that idea! I know just how to mount it too.

I had a photo HERE but for some reason the photo doesn't come up for me anymore. Do they remove photos after some time? I'll have to look for it and get back to you. I haven't mounted it yet on my new trailer. Perhaps I'll get that done this weekend (as it is very important!!).

I haven't done a whole lot but I'm considering a thread showing everything I've done. I have a few more things to do first.
