Also got 2 new RamMounts, one for my phone, one for my tablet. I tried them out. Image is deceiving, but the top of the tablet is still before my hood line, so it obstructs nothing.


Then, I fixed what broke on the last camping trip. Needless to say, our campers are not over engineered. Fat Butt here broke the frame on the dinette. I don't think it is going anywhere now. Next, replacing the paper thin wood on top with something a bit thicker.



Chooch: I see in 1 photo that it say's solar prep? would are they doing to a ROO to claim that now? Just like to keep up with FR progress....

Added a 120V outlet and wiring to allow for second ceramic heater to be run directly from pedestal or run dehumidifier at home without leaving TT plugged in. Mounted outlet near floor just outside shower and used opening under shower to access belly pan for exit hole. Wire runs to edge of trailer where I secured a plug. I use a #10 25ft extension cord from there to house mounted outlet or campground pedestal. Lots of bad thunder storms here in summer so I do not like to leave TT plugged in.

The unit you saw is probably my next unit. I saw it sitting at the dealer, and fell in love with it.

Basically, the "solar ready" is external solar by Zamp Solar. Here is the info.

Solar Ready RV Solar Kits

Basically, they have a plug on the outside, and you buy the portable kit that plugs into the plug. The Roo, with a single plug, will be able to handle up to 150 watt solar kit.

Winterized her- blew out the lines and then pushed pink stuff in. (Yes, overkill- but belt and suspenders for me.)

My wife gave the inside a good scrubbing.

Next up, pulling out everything that we don't want to leave in for the winter.

Sitting in site F66 in TT Orlando and all I did was spray the site for bugs, etc and enjoyed the 86 degree weather with a slight breeze. Wonderful weather.

Ha! I miss it already. My time in Orlando is summer only. We have 86 degrees, too- but it's like 10,000% humidity then. Truth be told, Key West was nice but the humidity was intense. I was surprised how humid winter could be!

The Unofficial TT group on FaceBook is all up in arms over the rule changes at TTO and new manager. Do you have any thoughts on all of it? If I recall correctly, you weren't a big fan of the old manager.

Plugged in the camper to top off the battery, in anticipation of a winter trip in 2 weeks. I'll pull it onto the driveway this week for a once-over.
