I took it camping. We're only 10 miles from the house but we're not at the house. Should be a good weekend with friends. I think we've got 5 or 6 families coming.

From my experience, I have mig welded for years and we have a tig machine and I'm here to tell you that there is a BIG difference in the two. Tig is closer to oxy-acetylene welding. I just haven't mastered holding the electrode steady enough, but our oldest son is extremely good at it as he was a welder at Butler Built Seats welding the $1500+ NASCAR/Sprint car alum seats.

Sweet! What I mean is that it's using heat, controlled electrically, to produce and control a weld puddle with a filler rod as necessary. If I go there I'll rent and practice some. Luckily it doesn't have to be terribly strong.

Storage Shelves & if you home brew...

Guys THANKS for all the Ideas! And the plans!

Like most, I have Zero Gravity chairs, a mat, various white trash items for the "Front Yard" tool kit...ect.

My biggest PITA storage items are the 2 chairs and the 6' folding table (it really is nice to have ependydad!)

Everything else is in storage boxes.

So I took measurements today and puttered a bit.

Sanitized my tank, plumbing and hoses. I was puzzling what to do with the gallon of bleach water AFTER I had sanitized my hoses...how to get it in the tank? Came up with this! The siphon from my home brew kit fits perfectly inside the gallon jug with the bleach water!

Brought the Rockwood home to clean and stock it getting ready for our trip next week. Also opened it up and extended the awnings to try out the awning poles. OC made the brackets, thanks OC worked great. Also wanted to antagonize the HOA some by having it set up in the driveway for a few days. Our street is pretty narrow, wasn't sure if I could back it into the drive, 90* cut in but it worked out good. Glad for the revolution on the Rockwood.

Sanitized the water tank last weekend and ran a rinse today as well as load up some non perishables today.

I need to cut some new wood blocks after dinner.
