Just took the dogs for a truck ride to the RV lot to air it out and deliver some things that we've bought the past few months. We'd love to dewinterize it but night time temps expected to dip in the 20's late next week. Surprised that our batteries are at 100% but glad the master cut-off switch works.

Had quite a busy, but very enjoyable day:

Picked up the camper from winter storage, installed Progressive EMS-HW30C, insulated the front pass through, put the license plate on. Lots more coming tomorrow.

Posted a new thread with pics from the EMS install.

Just spent the biggest part of the aftenoon putting the plastic sheeting (plexiglas or something similar-bought at Lowes) in our screen door. Please remember we are talking two very NOT handy people. Did good on the bottom but took forever on those curves on top but now we will still have screen even if the pups get excited. Can't wait until first trip this year in two weeks

Anxious to see how the dual control for the light and the 3 speed squirrel cage fan works and how much quieter it is.
I can attest to the Mod. It very quiet, the Keps nuts on top worked there way loose, added some Loctite Blue to mine. I used the stock vent put I am going to pull the flapper out to reduce the restriction!

What did you do to your camper today?

So my wife was cleaning the shower up and told me little pieces of something coming from the bottom of the tub and the wall... I'm like great..... So I go out there and pull the screws on the bottom and pull back the shower wall to find a lot of sawdust. The wall was dry so I sat there thinking and realized they probably installed the shower wall then proceeded to cut a hole in the shower wall and the wood wall behind it for the faucet. Well all
The sawdust piled up and was slowly working its was out. Got it all cleaned up now and back together.

Then she asked me to figure out where the carpet would go while we're traveling with toys in the trailer. So I was looking looking around and seen a spot on top of the cabinets that would work perfect. So I got some old straps out and a couple screws and screwed down the straps to the top of the cabinets to keep it from falling while going down the road.
