Just got back from rounding all the material up. Garage door tracks, 8 rollers, 20' of 1.5"x1.5"x0.125" angle and picked up the awning bracket support blanks.

I loaded 'er up....all that's left to do is put our clothes in and away we go!

DH installed the King Jack antenna just now and it doubled the number of channels we get now. (dang it, the thumbs up icon has disappeared again)

If age is a state of mind, and I've lost my mind, I'm AGELESS, right?
Give me 40 acres and I'll turn this rig around:

What did you do to your camper today?

I started this morning by dropping off DS and DW at his school for the their field trip and then I went to CW. I grabbed a few items, Screen Door Cross Bar, Exterior Cable TV Receptacle and Progressive pepper duo corer but really wanted few few more stuff Talked to the CW Tech about my options to repair the broken WHD, he told me the cheapest solution is to take it to a welding shop to add a new piece and buy another friction bar for the partsto replace the friction bar I lost between here and the coast.
After CW I then headed over to Walmart picked up a 2 man rent as a surprise for DS and also a adjustable truck net. Then went to grocery store to pick up some groceries for our Memorial Day weekend camping trip to Pismo Beach and stopped to gas up. Got Home and did the following:

Washed and wax truck and trailer while it rain off and on, just had to get that dirt off and wax in

Relocated the battery cut-off switch from the center to the right side of the strap so battery strap strap can fit in properly

Installed the Screen door handle

I will have to install the cable receptable later, not enough time to do it

Then I made a sweet chili con carne and let it cook in the rice cooker for a few hrs to bring to the camping trip. So far I have just finished packing my clothes tonight(9pm) I will pack the rest of the items and head out before Lunch time

Made an all aluminum ladder mount for our new Tailgater which will mount either low or high depending on the location. The knob will allow the Tailgater to be rotated to get the handle pointing North and then lock it to prevent turning. The Tailgater base I made will also fit in the tripod I used for the old Dish antenna.
