Just installed 2 grills cut in 6x9 in the side of the fireplace, now I can hear my subwoofer now after 3 years. How they ever expected you to hear it with no grills cut in? Now it sounds great. Thank you Bamabob...

Treated all the rubber and plastic on the outside with 303 Aerospace Protectant. Wow! What a difference. Sorry I didn't learn of this earlier. Thanks to the forum I got educated, and believe me, that's something hard to do! By the way, in regards to the earlier post about the Jack antenna. Yup, I'm a convert too and was blown over by the improved reception.

Sneak washed the 15 trillion BUGS off the front cap and I started muckin' it out.

That was our longest (time wise and distance wise) trip since we got the 5er. EEEP! Lots of unloading to do....dang near needed a front end loader just for the laundry!

Thankful for shore power! I'll do it all a little at a time....

Now Sneak has to unload the basement, dis-assemble the drawer and paint it and make a plywood insert for the plastic junk sump by the door and then re-assemble it, re-load it and rearrange the rest. Keep him off the golf course or it won't get done before PF later this fall.

LOL YEP, but ya gotta give him credit for de-buggin' it this morning. He was gonna play golf this afternoon (he goes back to work tomorrow). Got all his "three S's" done, then BOOM! Thunder and rain. awwwww poor Sneak.

He DID say yesterday (about the slider) as we were breakin' camp: "I'm REALLY liking this set-up. This is *really* nice."

He's headed out now to pick up Chelsea. He's got my vehicle blocked in and she can't get up into his truck like she can my Jeep. She weighs more than the doc allows me to lift.

As dog tired as we both were when we got home last night, I'm glad he went ahead and got Buffy backed in and hooked up. We almost just backed 'er in to the driveway and crashed. Also glad we didn't stay an extra day. Today is his "battery re-charge" day before walking in to what will be like jumping into a blender at work in the morning.

HEY, what are those retention pins called? The ones you put in our bumper ends. Those things are the bee's knees!

I finally got up on the roof, took the damaged shower skylight off and installed the new one. My back is killing me and now that I have seen the roof, I know I have to go backup and clean it.

Ordered more crap from Amazon. I hate that place...

Max air cover, King antenna deal, a/c cover, quick disconnect set for lp(working on grill set-up from trailer), pull type landing gear pins(I am old), and I think that was it... Love that prime though. CW has the king on sale, but with shipping and 5-7 days I paid a few dollars more and will have for Wednesday....and hence the weekend.

This is what I had installed. NAPA AUTO PARTS | PART DETAILS
Thanks for the Link OC! Looks like this is what we will be having installed as well!
