Bought pillows to try and make the jack knife couch a bit less uncomfortable.
Room darkening thermal drapes to cover the entrance door window and to close off the cab area for warmer winters and cooler summers.

Removed our wobbling dinette table posts and base, at first we thought it was the tubes being worn. But not the case, it turns out to be the base, cheap pot metal, the hub had broken off the base. Replaced dinette table with a Walmart foldable table with legs that can adjust to 3 different heights. Works pretty good. Later on we will replace the base with a better made and stronger material.

when we pumped the antifreeze through it. it seemed to be, will know more next spring when we add the water. but think it is quite enough now to be able to leave it on for night time potty runs.

Started packing our rig today. We're leaving next Wednesday for the NASCAR CHAMPIONSHIP races in Homestead. Then on down to Key West for a week. We're so ready to hit the road.

Gave Woodstock a well deserved bath and removed some stubborn sticky stuff that appeared down the whole right side of unit.

Installed a max air2 vent cover that I picked up off amazon for 35$. Added hanging & sliding storage containers to front pass thru storage. Then pulled out crappy "stock" mattress and replaced with night therapy 10" from sams club for $225 ( they are having HUGE sale on those).

And what is this winterizing everyone keeps talking about?

Not today, but recently. Made an appointment at Redlands Truck & RV to have a few things done:
- Install 2 sets of Torklift Glowstep Revolution
- Fix my difficult to pull black tank handle
- Fix my slow to retract awning
- Fix my non-working stove fan
- Lube all slide out mechanisms
- Hopefully install JoyRider shocks
- Hopefully install an 12v outlets and 12v USB outlets into my tech cabinet area
- Hopefully fix my black tank flush (it doesn't let water into the black tank)

Looks like they'll have the camper the first few days of December while we enjoy Disneyland from a hotel (I really hate hotels).

I still need setup with an electrician to get some outlets and inverter installed. I also decided that I want to take out the crappy water-trap in the bathroom sink and replace it with a real p-trap; going to need a plumber or someone like it for that.

Redlands Truck and RV service is great. We had them install MCD shades in our 5er. We used their RV park for a night. We'll be using them in the future.

Their RV park? Tell me more...

Right now, the plan is for me to be at Soledad Canyon until the morning that they get the camper. If I can stay closer, that'd be ideal. I actually just emailed the service manager about boondocking in their parking lot the night prior.
