I put screens on my hot water and furnace vents. Also used stainless steel wire as I didnt like the springs that came with the kit alone.

Thinking of how to do my fridge vents. I have 2 of them and they are over sized vents.

I also put wire loom on my awning, jack and brake wires.

Put the grill bracket and spare back on the rear bumper.

This weekend I added 2 shelves, cleaned and treated all the slide out rubber seals, lubed the slide tracks, and started moving stuff out of the basement and back into the camper.

Might de-winterize today...or spread mulch. 15 yards worth, ugh

graphite paint (mower guard)

Another coat of graphite paint (mower guard) to the L brackets and spring bars.
Over time the graphite becomes in-bedded in the metal. Its clean, not messy and slick.

And I don't think there is enough room, given the bracing under there, to put it on the second step.
Capt., It's a 2-step set. Sitting in the driveway, I've got a pretty decent distance from the bottom step to the ground - also, that's what I find in most places we camp. Couldn't give any suggestions for your application.

I used stainless screen door material and aluminum tape...bought both at Loews or Home Depot...works great, cut to fit on the inside and tape up...very clean look from the outside

1. Cleaned the roof.
2. Applied Eterabond over all of the roof seams.
3. Packed the wheel bearings.
4. Washed and waxed.
5. Replaced the plastic floor registers with metal closable ones.
6. Built a retractable shelf for the DirectTV receiver. Got tired of tripping over the foot stool we were using.

For some reason I don't know where the weekend went.....

Dang Superman! You're making some of us look bad. By the time I am done with a wash and wax it's usually beer:30 and I'm done.

I checked brake linings, greased axle bearings, got both propane tanks filled, and tried to figure out where to camp Easter weekend.

Im gonna give that a try as I have the screening. With my over size vents its gonna be a little tricky. In other words my vent doors come off just like they all do.But I have vent section left on the sides of where the vent covers go still on the unit.
If any of that made any scene
