I'm not going to do steel wool as a buddy may drive it periodically and I assume the battery and cover will be enough of a hassle.

In-laws don't want it.

I performed a magic trick and made my stinky slinky fence post disappear. First pic is just the end caps painted black. Didn't quite do it, so the 2nd pic is the whole thing painted black.

The subject does not respond to repeated stimuli..........

Completely seems like something I'd do, checking to see how that happened the first time.

Nice job, but why do you have it opening on the front of the camper? Isn't the drain pipe in the back of the camper?

I could have mounted it in the back under the frame, but unfortunately, the gray and black piping at the back is in just the wrong place, meaning I wouldn't be able to slide the gutter out from the street side. I could have put it just in front of the axles, but then I couldn't get to it with the slide open without having to go under the slide. So with either of those places, I'd end up having to get to it from the curb side, which I don't really want to do. So it's just in front of the slide.

We don't use the TV opening in the bedroom so I modded it for more storage. Cabinet doors and hardware came from FR dealer. $72 shipped. Installed two shelves. Works great!

A couple of weeks ago I replaced all the interior bulbs with LEDs. I went with these.
Amazon.com: GRV T10 921 194 13-5050 SMD Wedge LED Bulb lamp Super Bright Warm White DC 12V Pack of 10: Automotive
They worked great. No more melted lights when the kids leave them on.
I also replaced the porch light and the light on the front with these.
Amazon.com: N.R.G 1141 1156 1003 BA15S Base 27 LED Omni-Directional Light Bulb 10-30v - 12v or 24v - 405 Lumens - Cool White: Automotive

Put on a quick disconnect on the new grill. Got a 50 to 30 so I can use my 30 ft 30 amp cord instead of always using to 50 amp. 30 sure is a lot easier to handle.

Went to pick up my camper from some warranty service but found out that they still haven't fixed it correctly. SO I went shopping for new toys and a new camper.....Still haven't found a light weight 5th wheel I like yet.
