Good looking!

I greased the axle points. Replaced the stock water filter with a whole house water filter - external.

Oh no, ouch! I hope it wasn't too bad.

I spoke to the finance guy at RVWholesalers, who told me we're good to go for the delivery pickup tomorrow.

I need to do that to one of mine. It's hard to pull the shade down because it's too tight I assume.

Hang on to the strings and just loosen the little clamp at the bottom and let a little more string up in the clamp and re-tighten the clamp. If you get it too loose, they will fall on their own. Don't ask how I know.

What did you do to your camper today?

Much better now! Thanks for the tip. Mine were tied to. Loop on the screw clamp. Just loosened the knot, slit it down about a quarter inch and now that are much better. I see what you mean if they are too loose though

This was actually last year but I still love having it! There are several posts on this forum as to how to do it.
