Since our new trailer has, yikes, 3 sewer hoses instead of one (which is what we were used to for 5 years) I went to Home Depot to figure out a way to install something under my back bumper to store the extra poop shoots.
The 3-inch rain gutter hoses were too small (I want to fit the sewer hoses AND the fittings in there) so looked at the 4-inch square fence posts. I really liked them, even though they have the holes in them for the fence railings, but I can put them on the top since they'll be on the bottom of the bumper. Unfortunately, my Home Depot didn't have the fence post covers so I'll have to go to another store (Big R) to see what they have.
Since our RV isn't white, my wife will surely want it to be painted so it's "pretty" so I'll be buying some gold or brown spray paint...as well as primer and some light sanding paper to prep the PVC.

Today I crawled around under my Park Model and levelled the trailer. Added blocking to 10 points to raise the trailer. Trailer is on a slanting hillside site and we are not allowed to dig holes, just sits on blocks and cement patio stones. It has lasted for 4 winters so we did good. Thanksgiving tomorrow with 5 of the 7 kids and then back out Monday to Winterize. Next weekend get ready for trip with Rockwood to Michigan.

By the way Congratulations on your new unit, I like them WildCats......

Happy Thanksgiving, do you all do the turkey thing also? I myself smoke a turkey and Baby back ribs, I eat the ribs and they get the turkey. LOL
They beg me to smoke the turkey every year.

I used to do the Deep fried Turkey but then went to healthy eating and working out but they tasted great just a big mess with all the oil cleanup etc.
