Installed a tilting mounting bracket on our tv. The viewing angle from the dinette wasnt good so I'm hoping this helps.Click image for larger version

Also installed blue sea single circuit battery disconnect switch on the battery. Hopefully this will help battery drain when we are not using the camper.

Took the camper for a ride today!
Actually, I finally de-winterized it totally and sanitized the system. Took it to a nice level spot and adjusted the WDH, which I asked the dealer to do when I bought it, and they didn't. Then DW and I went for a drive to the local SP and used their facilities to empty the black and gray tanks. Also wanted to see how the new adjustment worked. Everything seems to be working as it should!

We are now set for our first camping trip of the season this Thursday!

Nothing today- but bought the materials to finally hang my sewer holders (2 threaded rods, washers, lock nuts, and plating to go across them both). Now, just need to bring the camper home one day that my father-in-law can drill the holes for the mounts to the frame.

I also bought a 2x12, 2x10s and plywood so I can make some shelves for the basement. It'll be nice to be able to get to our zero gravity chairs without a crap ton stacked on top of them! Just need to bring the camper home sometime that I'm not busily doing spring cleanup in the yard (for dear son's second birthday come June).

Pulled it home after a weekend camping! Then, when i pulled into the yard I could smell brakes, seems my right front got a little warm, by the time I unhooked and moved the truck then jacked up said tire it was spinning freely. I guess it's time for a little brake maintenance, I need to replace the rear pads anyhow, rotate the tires, etc.

2x12 & 2x10's, boy, you are going heavy duty. Why not alum angle or steel angle?

Yeah there has been a few talks about this lately. I had it myself a few weeks ago. Slider pins were sticking and I overheated front passenger side brake. Took apart and lubed/cleaned everything. Now been ok

I used aluminum angle myself to build a rack for my zero gravity chairs. Only weighed a couple of pounds and sturdy as hell. I thought wood would add to much extra weight.

Day four of full timing - cleaned out basement (again) to get more weight savings. Amazed at how much duplication I had between the condo and the RV.....

Comfort-level, mostly. I'm much more confident with wood than metal.

I do plan on making a table hanger after this is in to hang a fold-up 6' table from the ceiling in the basement area.

You're both right- it'll be heavy as heck, but at my heaviest, I'm 1,000-1,300 pounds under my gross vehicle weight for the camper so I've got the capacity.
