Yes, I cut the carpet off where the new treads rest.

I also changed out the cheaply made 3-Step entry steps for a nice set of 4-step entry steps. Sure is nice on old worn out knees.

Yet another project to come from the RV shows. DW said "we need 4-steps", you know the rest of the story...

Chair retainer mod

I had some free time to wonder around Northern Tool last night until my creative mod juices started flowing. I stumbled across Progrip rope lock tie downs and EUREKA...another mod was born. I needed a simple and quick way to secure our chairs to keep them from sliding around in the storage bay in the FW. Check out the pics. It's pretty self explanatory.

While in the basement a couple nights ago, I wished FR had installed lights at both sides - thought about installing A light with a 3way switch. However, YOUR idea is far better! Thanks!

Put micro switches on both doors and forget the 3 way switches. Much cleaner and you don't have to worry about turning them off. When you close the door, the lights go off.

Nice but I have so much gear stored in our basement that nothing "slides"!

Installed new outlets by the master bed with one plug on bottom and two usb on top. Had to get a shallow box to replace those cheap all in one outlets they install.

Started stocking a few things....headed OUT next Wednesday!

OC, I may need that cat-o-nine tails if he's gonna get those poles installed before we leave.

Maybe I'll lock his sticks up for the weekend.
