What I did to my camper today

So today I put in a new Cal King Mattress, but I had to raise up and center the Faux headboard, Then I had to lay down new plywood to support the mattress and it's size (76"x 82")Fits nice into the slide.
Then I had asked awhile back about making a flag pole, I did that to and it came out pretty nice. I will take pictures of it in a few days.
Bought some Tire covers at a place called the Restore (Habitat for Humanity).
everything they get in is given to them by contractors or homeowners that just have stuff laying around the house or bought to much for a job. anyway, They came from CW and the orig. price on them were $38.00 per pair and I got them for $6.00 a pair, still in the box never used
Hung up 2 new wall lights, put on my levels.
That was about it for my wknd. Off to work tomorrow.

We traded the 2015 Puma 30FQSS for a 2017 Surveyor 33RETS, brought it home, equipped it, installed the Pro-Pride hitch, installed dirt dobber cover on heater, put on step carpets, DW organized inside and I handled the outside stuff. It was an all day camper day.

Got the new Maxxis LR-D tires installed yesterday, with metal valve stems (replacing the original LR-C)

Got over half way done with project to connect the kitchen drain to the front drain, but realized that I need an extra pipe coupler to align the pipes, which I can't get before Tuesday, so I'll try to get that done after Tuesday but before the weekend. (I'll post photos, parts list, instructions etc once in all done)

Also installed one of the folding step braces, and re-sprayed the king-pin, plate and wedge. (Sprayed the hitch head during the week)

Today I'm going to the beach instead

Sanitized fresh water tank and water lines.

Installed new shower head with a pause button. The new shower head was $22.00 at Walmart. I installed it in less than 5 minutes.

Purchased a flagpole and a new set of tow mirrors, as someone decided liberate my mirrors while in my drive way.
Thinking about purchasing a E4 hitch - TT came with an E2 and I have been dealing with white knuckles long enough.
Went to the TT yesterday and prepped it for a camping trip this coming weekend (gotta try out DW new patio lights) AND her new pressure cooker(any excuse to go camping).

Our 30# Tanks that came with the unit New/empty,when Filled weight "56-58 lbs"! They weight that after being Refilled also,the "Refill Station" that we use has a Platform Scale that they sit the Tank on and when it reaches 56# its Full! I marked all of our Tanks with #'s Full numbers,20's and 30's! I use all out tanks on our "Gas Grill's" at Home until "Totally Empty" before going to the Refill station! We have never had to "Refill Propane" on any Trips,even in the Fall/Spring while away from Home! Youroo!!

Did an end of winter inspection yesterday. First trip is in 2 weeks. I was pleasantly surprised that the roof is still pretty clean and all the Dicor is in good shape. Unfortunately we had what looks like tiny field mice inside. First time in ten years storing it at the farm. Doesn't look like they did any real damage - they just chewed up some toilet paper, paper towels, Kleenex and a rubber BBQ brush.
