Well, yesterday I used the wiring diagram I created (RV's are *seldom* wired correctly) to install DirecTV in the 5er and verify that it is HD, surround sound and available in living room, bedroom and basement. Worked beautifully and took about 10 minutes to aim the dish.

Tomorrow, I'll be installing a desk (I work 100% remote).

Did not do anything to my unit except wonder what the dealer was doing with it. After my shakedown, I dropped it along with the punch list at the dealer. They stated it will be into Dec before they could get it completed. I stated to them I had another trip planned for the beginning of Dec and they replied it would be completed before then. Will wait until midweek and call for an update.

Went on Shakedown trip with my new Rockwood 8289ws this weekend to a local campground. This is the first trip since I picked it up about a month ago. No problems and everything worked perfect. When I got home I found the ceiling fan blade and hub assembly lying on the table. Apparently the teeny tiny nut that holds it on vibrated off on the way home (30 miles). When I find it to put back on a drop of loc-tite should take care of that problem. Other wise great trip. Also pulls nice behind 2008 Toyota Tundra SR5 with 5.7, Firestone airbags with 20lbs of pressure.

Sunday I watched the Cowboys and am glad they're still tied for 1st place with Philly. Burned some CD's for the TT, so we can have good music when we want.

I picked up a new shower head (Oxygenics) and a brass elbow and quick disconnect for the water inlet.
