Nice work OldCoot!

I purchased a 500lb cargo rack from harbor freight
Aluminum Hitch Cargo Carrier - 500 lb. Capacity
For bikes and other things. Also picked up a locking pin for it.

I also ordered from amazon a set of 10 LED 1141 bulbs to replace the incandescent bulbs (saves energy and prolongs battery life).

Also picked up a 3 port (2.1 amps per port) 12v USB charger - 2006 seems to predate USB ports!!!

Sounds like me!

I use Protect All. Spray an area about 2x2 +/-, swirl around with micro fiber towel, let it haze some, and wipe off with a clean micro fiber towel. Use lots of elbow grease. It'll take me 8 hours to do the whole thing. I use Protect All on everything except the roof. Kind of like painting; something I hate doing. But, it is a good way to get a real close view on all the seams and scratches.

I will have to do it before the summer is up.

I just got this one:

Haven't used it yet but looks like it will hold up well and its multiple-purpose sold me.

Went and got Rocky from the lot...heading to a state park we've never been to the next three days.
Found two tires about 2 pounds low and one was 4 so filled them with the portable compressor before heading out.

Well replaced a friends bathroom fan with a Fantastic fan on her 2005 23 Aerolite Hybrid, feel bad he ex husband doesn't help her with her two teenagers so since I am trying to make their camping season a reality I decided to replace her fan, redo battery wiring, clean her RV and awning, also help her replace her manual Jack with my spare 3500# Jack. Her two teenage daughters love camping and she want going to go this year now we have two trips planned with her, expression on kids faces and bottle of wine were all the thanks I needed. I will say not a hard job but her roof is not as thick as the new ones, so I have to cut down the inside shroud to fit a 3" roof but thanks to videos and ppl here I had the knowledge to help her so thanks all
