Added 72' of red led rope lights under the fiver. It looks really awesome at night especially with the red led nose lights that came installed on her. Also installed white rope lights under the toe kick on the kitchen island and another outlet. Next will be redoing the bathroom medicine cabinet. Will shave off one inch from the depth and mount it into the wall so we can better access the sink.

Put about a 2 foot rub across the corner of the front cap and about 3 feet of heavy rub marks with some tears in the rubber roof on our 2014 Silverback with a limb at the registration office at Bull Shoals/White River State Park in northcentral Arkansas today....don't know why they would have that 4" limb still there hanging over the parking area where you stop to register though I know it's my fault for not looking can tell it's been hit by others though I did put a pretty good signature on it....lucky I had some repair material to keep us in the dry.

I put some water in the tank and powered up the water system! I couldnt believe it,everything worked and nothing leaked!This is a new unit that we picked up in nov, no PDI on the water or electric.Everything electric worked too.Other than tweaking a few things,we were ready to roll in about 4 hrs. I dont understand what they were thinking when they put the RVQ tap on though,its back under the trailer about 14" and you must crawl under to hook it up.I will remedy that tomorrow.

Made my own metal child gate since they don't make them 2ft narrow still got to hing and latch it. It use to be a bent sunburst awning.

Had some questions about the awning poles I put on my slide, so here's a bit more detail.

The brackets are from OC of course, and the poles are Sherlock painting poles from HD. The poles are a fiberglass outer and a hexagon aluminum inner with a push button locking mechanism. The poles come with adjustment holes every 6", so I added more holes to give adjustments every 1.5". Since the inner pole has flat sides this is easy to do, as you only need to center the additional holes left to right and only drill one side.

The aluminum inner section has a metal threaded portion for rollers so I cut that off with a chop saw, and cross drilled for mounting to the top bracket. It's hollow and that leaves a hole in the top, so I put a bit of silicone caulk over the hole. I painted the fiberglass outer section and the locking mechanism with this paint, it works for plastic and covered well. While I had the soft handle removed for painting, I shortened it to 1.5" and cut a hole in the bottom with a utility knife to drain any water out.

The 4-8' length poles almost reached the ground with the awning deployed flat. I always set it to have slope away from the RV and to one side, so the length should be fine the way I'll use it. I may swap my main awning's metal conduit poles later, but would need to use the 6-12' length since its mounted higher.

The quick locking mechanism is what I like about these poles, and they are also light. Hopefully the mechanism will be durable, I do see that Wooster sells rebuild kits if needed.

Wifey and I pulled The Beast outa it's hole along side the shed and put it in the driveway for a spring de-winterizing. The cover will come off, then the fun begins. On a bright note, there were NO mouse droppings anywhere to be found!
