That's what I'm guessing, like I said I know the rear pads are done so I'll have a gettin dirty day, maybe this weekend. I'm "sure" the front pads are fine as I replaced them only a few thousand miles ago, but since this truck is only a hauler now that was a couple of years back. I'll get the light out and check the pads just to make sure.

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.
But they take up so much space and don't add anything but I guess your peace of mind. I use alum and steel so I can pack more useful stuff I don't use.

Too busy to take pictures...
New fresh water tanks replace the one that I cracked the pump hose fitting on. Did that probably when I first winterized it and it to leaking worse got worse and nothing would patch it and hold for long. This time I used enough 1/2 water hose to give it a loop at each end so it's got some slack. Surprised that a factory tank was only $122 shipped and it had all the right fittings and everything. This was a real project, since it looks like the tank goes in before the floor at the factory and there were screws I had to drill out since they were coming out wards from the tank. I also threw an extra section of steel strap across the center to help keep it from bowing out wards. I'll be nice to hit some of the campgrounds that don't have hookups finally.

While under there, I saw my rear axle brake wiring was ripped off, so I fixed that.

Replaced the old outside speakers with some crapy Jensen RV speakers... I don't need it loud or booming, so these do me just fine for some background music. The old ones were some off brand and made the radio sound like it was between channels. These probably will do the same, but I think I only paid $24 for the pair.

Replaced the swing out handle on the entry door with another one... I reused the old brackets since it used 4 bolts and the replacement used 2. The plastic brackets were fine but the old handle had started to rust and the rubber part was starting to come apart.

Installed one of those door bars on the screen door so people quit using the plastic screen door slide cover to catch the door swinging open.

Installed a Jack antenna, but I think I need to redo the coax going to the antenna. The light would not light up on the antenna and when I checked it with a meter, I only got 1volt, so I think something else is wrong. 5 minutes to install is a joke... It take me more than that to convince me to go on the roof!

I meant to wash the top, but ran out of steam. I guess I'll get that when I tackle the coax.

We go to Canadian Shield once a summer and collect rocks for the Garden. Before I go I take out anything I don't expect to use to allow payload for nice colourful rick's! Last year it was 300 lbs worth!

What do you use for marking your torque stripes?

Bought a 30 amp TT power hookup to be installed today outside my garage so I don't have to convert it down to a 20 amp and risk electrical issues
