Believe it or not, that's one thing that I don't own. I've used mobile RV techs so far for anything that would have possibly required it. That's a good idea I'll order some off of Amazon. It'll be here right after the rain stops.

Never even thought of it. It has cracks on 2 sides of it now- both are covered in Dicor. The one side got bigger and that's why it re-started its leaking.

That's a good work of art there Doug. I sure am proud of you!

What happened, a hail storm?

Nothing to the Sandpiper, but the Morton Buildings crew did get started on its home today. This was the scene at about 11:00 am.

Before the day was done, they had most of the post up. Didn't get a picture before dark though.

Set up a time to meet the guy selling the swivel wheel "trailer". Heading down to Old Coots neck of the woods to meet the guy at 9:30 in the morning.

Morton says the structure will be done by Friday of next week. At that point we will just need concrete, electrical, and the 20' wide garage door!

I wish. Longest story shortest, back in January - I tried an overnight stop and think I nicked a tree in a twisty little campground (that turned out to be full-up). I had a mobile RV tech temporarily patch it up with Dicor and it worked for quite a while. But at the last rain, I had a drip. Ahead of 4 days of rain, I did this patchwork artwork. So far, few hours of rain and no drip.

Once the rain stops, I'll patch it with Eternabond until I can get somewhere that I'm there for 3 weeks at a go and will order a new skylight and install it.

I installed this screen door bar/handle. We got tired of the wind jerking the door out of our hands and trying to grab a little piece of plastic or screen wire, etc.

Also, I started the process of reassembling the big drawer that fell out of our couch on my last trip. I don't see how this ever held together. Didn't finish this job!

Sofa-Jack-knife-Bed Mod

Well, seeing as we're heading out in a few days, for a month, I decided to be sure I got some good nights sleep while camping.

You see.... The "Queen" gets the queen bed up front.
I am relinquished to the jack-knife sofa bed.... apparently I snore

I am not all that tall but the sofa is just a little too short to really stretch out my 5'9" tired old body.
So I did a mod to the end gable of the sofa between the table and chairs.

Welp, the duck tape failed. It's dripping into the shower. Guess I'll wait on that Eternabond and "fix" it right/temporarily again.

I did something today that many members may roll the eyes at or call me rookie. I am.

I did the mouse pad fix to my water pump. It is a lot quieter when it needs to run but Wow!. It no longer makes noise like a little hammer on the floor after pumping water.

Way Cool, now at night, my DW can hardly hear the drum roll on the floor as the pump winds down.

Thanks everyone for posting the simple things.

If it's going into the shower, just let'er drip!
