What did you do to your camper today?

Booked our next trip. April 28-May 2 at Tanglewood park. About 20 minutes away. We scored site 10 too.... The only pull through! More importantly though, is the fact that the utilities are "midship" which will work out allot easier than the other sites! This will be our second trip this year and second trip there total (and this year). I tried to get the weekend of April 9 too but it showed booked. We play allot of baseball at a complex behind the park, so it works out well.

After that, we will have 6 nights and 19 more that are already booked between the outer banks and Myrtle Beach. Will probably end up with several more weekends for baseball tournaments too.

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 wish I did 2. The one I did is full with my sewer hoses. Now I need a second one to store our outdoor carpet.

RV folding ladder might be a good fit. 3.5"x 4.5", 6' or 7' long.

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


Very nice, Lee!

Yesterday I finally tackled a couple of drawers. Fixed one entirely and got started on a second one but found that I likely lost the drawer slide during shipment; the box came awfully banged up. Now to call Rockler and explain that it took me 3 months to start my project and see if they'll help (unlikely, but it's worth calling).

And fixed our pots & pans drawer- the bottom busted the staples out on our way here. Glued and caulked it into place- going to see how my handiwork fairs today after it setup overnight.

Sorry if this is off topic but there are a lot of diy guys in here that might not always look at all the treads....

So I'm getting ready to change my oil on my onan 4K and the oil plug is right above the I beam of the frame so I'll be making a big mess most likely.... So my question is does anyone know the thread size of the oil plug? I want to replace it with a fumoto valve so that next time it's way easier and cleaner.

Had a new Dometic Briskair II 15000 BTU A/C installed. My 16 month old unit crapped out. Thank goodness Dometic has a two year warranty. My repair tech gave my 13500 7 months before it goes out also. Dometic is having issues with units built in 2014 when they changed over to new freon. I did buy an extended 3 year warranty from Dometic just to be sure, only $100, better than $900 to replace the A/C
