Tried to find the 2"x10" adj. vents while we were in FL, went to at least 5 Lowes and about as many Home Depots and none to be found. Went to Lowes in Concord when we got back and they had 4 big boxes of them. Got 2 to install when I start on the camper when the weather warms up and I get thru with all my naps.

Also have to take the GT3 unit out and take it to a repair shop and see if they can get the dvd to play. Never used it before in 4 yrs. Superb quality.

Today ran all the wiring for my new Tank Edge iSeries tank monitoring system that will be delivered tomorrow. Had to drop most of the underbelly and fish several wires. Took me most of the day but got them all run. Also setting it up to turn the electric water heater element in from inside rather than outside. Should get the project finished in the next week.

Finally did the sewer hose mod...haven't figured out exactly how I'm gonna mount the caps. Thinking of stainless stings and riveting to tube. I don't know what I will use no.2 for...but it is there when I do.

BTW: I used 1/4" SS threaded rod and nuts with 3/8" OD poly tubing to coat rod and treated 1x6 for the spacers.

I just used two small eye screws, one on top, one on bottom. Pack with several in it for about $1 at HD.

This weekend a built a new bed frame for the bunk room in the fifth wheel.

The bottom bunk just has a couple of folding cushions for use as a mattress, and we need more storage for our 8 week summer trip, so I build a bed frame out of 1" square aluminum tube, aluminum angle bars, and some 1x4 wood slats, so we can fit some rolling storage totes under the bed in the bunk room.

I'll post some photos of it installed in the camper within the next couple of days.


Bed frame assembled (sitting on our driveway)


Close-up of one of the center legs. I used a T-braces and angle braces to attach the legs to the side angle bars


The assembled legs (on the garage floor) before being assembled. I cut and sanded the 1" aluminum square tube to size and used angle braces (with #10-24 flat head bolts and lock nuts) to build the leg frames
