Got the reinforcing angles cut and holes drilled for the nylon plugs for the main channel. Now to clean the paint off where I want to skip weld the angles to the channel. Mig welder doesn't play well with paint.

BTW, also got the bent leg strut straightened. That's it for today.

That is too cool to see. Thanks for sharing.

What thread are you talking about for more pictures? Do you have a link?

Always seems like there is something to do or mod on these RV's

In this case, I murdered my stabilizers coming out of parking lot. Bob asked if he could have them and I agreed - it was that or I scrapped 'em. Pretty amazing to see OldCoot putting them back together and making it better. I'm glad someone can use them.

Cut up the tree that came down next to the camper from the storm the other night. Man I need a chain saw... But my Sawz All took care of it!! I'll just need some Aleve if I can get out of bed tomorrow!

Had a tornado come by the house, about 5 miles away... But still to close for me. Took out about 40 buildings, mostly Amish farms. No one was hurt though, luckily. Of course I was at work 35 miles away dealing with it there... DW and DD were fine, just a little upset that they needed to hide in the basement for about 30 minutes at 11pm.

Doc are you in the Lancaster area? I heard reports of a tornado touching down. Glad to hear you and your family are ok.
