I just finished installing my EMS unit. Two and half nights later what a pain. Had to make custom steel brackets to mount it to the floor but above converter (about 11 inches of clearance). What a pain inside a small cabinet door in the bathroom. Could they make a smaller, tighter place to put it. Really hoping it was worth the trouble.
Got my awning poles removed and ready to go to powder coaters. Can't wait to get them back Friday.

I just wished I read directions better- I wouldn't have had so much work digging out the mortise with a utility knife and screwdriver.
These work great for mortising.

Yesterday I cleaned the roof and washed the sides down. Noticed the emblems and decals peeling and rolling up. Shame. Its a 2013 model.

That's bad, I might have to have a conversation with FR along with pictures.

We had some storms blow thru on Monday night. So yesterday I went to the cg to check on my unit. After a full examination from top to bottom Im all good, a branch just missed my unit.
Some of my neighbors are not so lucky. A tree branch fell on their slide out and truck and did some damage. A few folks lost their awnings.

Ironically, I own chisels but deemed them "likely not needed" for the trip.

Fortunately, the doors are cheap and soft. The utility knife and screwdriver worked well enough. It doesn't look great- but hey, it's done.

Ordered awning poles from Turbs and the awning kit from OC. I also ordered the C-101 Earth Anchoring System someone mentioned, but they refunded my money - they're out of stock until September.
