Brought my camper home from 4 beautiful days in some of West Virginia's most magnificent mountains at Seneca Rocks. Beautiful scenery!

Thought maybe you had "roof noise" issues.


<duckin' and runnin'

LOL...nope, no roof noise...actually I think the tire was there as a leftover of the dock they had improvised next door we were sandwiched between 2 families from the same town and they were rebuilding a pontoon boat they launched it the 4th and were using tires at the dock as bumpers LOL

Something OC might like to try in FL -- our neighbors were long term campers (he worked local construction at Browns Ferry) - he had 3 or 4 5 gallon pails full of dirt and was growing tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers

There may be a point where RV mods become a full time profession, leaving no time get out and exercise and look around. And, by the way, posting and reading on this forum is also time consuming

Also i have a strange issue that has happened since day one. When i turn on the lights over the sink or in the bathroom the hd tv screen freezes. kind of like you hit the pause. turn off the lights and tv starts working again

I hate to say this but it sounds like you have a SERIOUS wiring/electric issue awning lights...interior lights messing with the TV...common theme Prothos...how old is your rig?

Possibly Honestly? I work in the space industry where everything is computerized. I enjoy "puttering" around the camper both at home and in RV camps...meet neat people too..musta had 10 folks stop by this weekend when I was installing the awning poles...they may be rednecks but they are fabricators LOL ... Guy next door was installing the FRF PVC awning pole mod I showed him on my iPad when we left today LOL
