To me, this should be a standard item on all RV's.
What brand did you use?

Today I installed shelves in the coat closet and now we have an nice pantry. Also installed a quick disconnect for our barbecue.
Knowing its the law not have a lock on the propane locker door I've decided to fasten a chain thru the bottles and bolt the chain to the frame and leave the door unlocked.

Lately, doing my typical after-Christmas routine of ordering various do-dads for the trailer truck for the start of camping season...so far my wish-list consists of:

For the Tundra truck:

-Rock Tamer mud flaps
-Much smaller radio antennae so I can dump the coat-hangerish one that is stock.
-Bug deflector for the front of the truck

For Rocky:

-EEZ Tire pressure/heat monitoring system (for 4 tires)
-Maxxair vent covers (one for the bedroom and one for living room..bathroom already has one.)
-Various voltage line testers and meters.

Other assorted things like new cloth covers for my electric waxer, slide lubricant, tie-downs for the plastic propane cover (it seems way too loose to me.)

Installed a Maxxair remote controlled vent in the bedroom cos the living room one exceeded my expectations.

Went to the storage area , swept out the inside and reorganized the storage area in front, put on the new wheel covers, replaced the anode rod and put on the step covers.
DW had me put up the key holder and we put in the new shelves in the pantry.
Getting ready to roll south in February for a few days of need R&R.

Well, it's +17oC (63F) here in Calgary this afternoon so I went up to the storage yard and checked her out. Everything all secure and dry. At temperatures like this it should be late April and I should be out camping. Checked the batteries that are in the basement at home and they are both holding their 6V full charge. I've poured over the CW lists and found the "nice to have" items. Now I just need the Loonie to rise back towards par with the greenback. Also been checking out a few places on-line to see where we might land on our trip to Oregon and Washington in August.

Started planning a 10-week trip this summer. Going to be pretty simple- to Orlando, move around there a bit, and then back. It's been dubbed, the summer of Disney.

Bought a 4kW Powerhouse Generator for the Rockwood. Just in case, power outage, Walmart stopover, no room at the RV Inn etc. Also I can use it at the storage lot when getting ready to leave. We can clean and stock the fridge etc. Leave the fridge and heat on if we go south in March, our street is jammed with snow making home parking a chore.
