Thanks for the info and pictures guys. After seeing them, it is clear now. They work in conjunction with tie downs.

I have always been an awning freak, and roll it in with anything over a breeze. Have seen to many wrapped around motorhomes and trailers at the dragstrip.

Hopefully they leave my grass as green as they portray it in the rendering
Looks similar to the one I built.
My green grass is currently replaced by some of that white stuff!

Thanks in advance. Pictures help!

I picked up material to make 6 sets of poles when I get home in about 2 weeks. Where in SC do you live? I'm in Concord, NC just outside of Charlotte. Will have 5 sets of poles for sale if I can get Bob Caldwell or Glenn Gurczyk to take them to the Mayberry Rally.

Yes sir. Winston Salem NC.

If you don't mind, PM me a price for the set. I'll be flying out of Charlotte a few times in March and could meet you somewhere in Concord and pick them up if they are ready.

Thanks!

Tired of getting creases in my forearms from sitting at dinette, so I took the top off and rounded the upper edge with a 1/2" quarter round router bit. Sanded it smooth and no more creases! Thinking of putting a lip on the counter extension. Anyone done this?

Today....

Put the Andersen in the bed and pinned it in. Gathered the tools to install the adapter on the pin box and put them in the truck.

That's about all I have done.

We did book our first stay last night. 3 nights at nearby Tanglewood park starting March 11. Have an AAU baseball tournament that weekend that is just a mile or so from the park. Will be a good shakedown.

Going to pick it up out of storage tomorrow. Got spring break in three weeks. Several things to do to it before we roll out.

I have the Vengeance 25V toy hauler and elected not to get the HappiJack bed option. It's normally stored at the top of the garage area. Not having that option leaves the garage looking empty...really empty. Picked up some unfinished cabinets at Lowes, sanded and stained to (sorta) match and mounted them where the bottom of the cabinet is 6'3" above the floor. Lot less empty now and I'm still trying to decide if I want to duplicate the setup on the opposite side.

Made a new manifold for the water connections. Now I just have to turn on the one I need instead of changing hose locations.

I know I didn't do a very good job of ensuring my water line was plumb. This will drive me nuts every time I open the door
