Made a couple cup holders to replace the ones lost when I took the center console out of our recliner chairs. Click image for larger version

Life isn't much fun right now.

Hoping all turns out well for you, so sorry to hear and a tough time for you, wishing you the best 😇

Know what you're going through. I just lost my mom not too long ago. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Wow! That's nice. Only PREMIUM beverages for cup holders like those

Finally got the two center stabilizer jacks installed. They had been laying in the barn for a while. Much easier installation than I expected.

Welp, I'm admitting defeat. I tried removing the electric stabilizers, but the nut is rusted to the bolt (even after a few shots of WD40 and letting it soak). The real issue is that I can't easily get to the topside of the bolt and have stripped it of any angles so now it just spins.

I'm annoyed- I'm going to call a mobile RV tech and warn him that he may need an angle grinder to take it down. We'll see.

That's great to hear, do you store anything in it or just nothing but air

Did you check the zip ties, are they in good condition still?

I periodically pump helium in it so that it stays lighter than air!

I have a two 90-degree sewer elbows (for the campsite connection.. I'm not sure why I'm carrying my old one, but it's in there).

I have a "Y" sewer connector.

I had a sewer donut, but it dry rotted and I threw it out about 2,000 miles ago.

And I have a basket with 2 x 50' collapsible hoses that I use for my black tank flushes.

I check the zip ties at every overnight stop and many quick stops. They're holding as strong now as when I first put them on.
