Yeah I currently have the camper about 3 hours (round trip) away at our family farm for winter storage. So the lady told me I could just have a Cop or Sherrif out to verify the VIN and send them the information. Luckily its a small town, so hopefully we can get someone out and they won't actually charge.

I am a transplant to Kentucky and we have weird stuff here. Just a tt here no real issue with tags because I bought it from a KY dealer so the handled the transfer of the tag that was on it because in Kentucky the plates stay with vehicle.
Now when I bought my sons blazer out of state whole different story, since it is not running I had to pay sheriff office $15 to come to my house and check vin so I could get a classic title, that just transfers ownership. When I have it street worthy I have to buy temp tag so I can drive it to sheriff office for an inspection, another $15. Then I can get a full title and plates. If I I had bought it in KY in the same conditions no inspections what so ever.

Where we normally got 3 channels with our Winegard, we now get 9 channels on the exact same spot. Very happy with our Jack! Plus you don't give it a second thought about lowering the antenna.

Replaced the Batwing with a Rayzar and improved our reception also. Good U-Tube video on lubing the gear mechanism, didn't know about the little black access hole for lube.

Changed out the factory lippert suspension shackles and installed an equa flex stabilizer with MORRYDE heavy duty shackles with wet bolts. Haven't pulled with it yet but after looking at the nearly worn thru bushings, I'm thinking this will cut down on the noise. Click image for larger version

I was looking at our Flagstaff 27 RLWS and decided that the top spot in our kitchen drawers wasn't very functional because it is just made to hold soap, sponges, etc. So, I decided to make it a drawer. The faceplate is pretty much the same size as the other drawer fronts, except for the hinges. I made a drawer out of 1/2" birch plywood, and fastened the drawer front to it. I then remove the drawer slides from the cabinet, installed a couple of extension risers to the lower rack, and installed new upper drawer slides for the new drawer. There was a piece of wood trim in the corner of the opening, and it was removed by taking out four screws that hold it in place. I then reinstalled the newly modified drawer slides, and filled the screwholes that held the hinges on the cabinet frame. Now, we have a forth drawer in the kitchen. It has a spot cut into the top for a drawer pull, but I am going to install a knob.

Checked and adjusted air pressure in truck and trailer tires, checked torque on all lug bolts and revolution wedge. Sanitized fresh water tank and lines, filled water tank about 1/2 full. Stocked fridge and dry food. Pulling out early in the morning for the warmer parts of south Texas. 40's for the hi here today, 36 for the over night low tonight. About an inch of snow a couple of nights ago, tired of the cold, getting out of here for awhile.
