What did you do to your camper today?

After taking delivery of our new Surveyor one thing the little misses didn't like was the one upper cabinet that only had one cabinet door. So I had the dealer order me another one and I reconfigured it. It's pretty scary tearing apart a brand new camper.

Nice job. Definitely looks much better now.
Doesn't make any sense it just having the one door to start with.

Thanks.
Those were our thoughts also. Now it makes it easier to reach into the cabinet.

Reinstalled my awning brackets and poles - just couldn't part with them when we traded the Flagstaff for the Sunseeker. I did have to repaint them, but no big deal.

I know, I know...... picture to follow tomorrow. Too dark now to take one.

As promised.......



I use a piece of pool noodle to keep the poles from rattling in the brackets.

Rattles are cause by them being mounted upside down. Should be small end up and large end down. That's how the brackets were designed to be used, contrary to what the Iowegian says.

[QUOTE=leefl;1190116]Just posted a write-up on the mod I did to connect the kitchen/galley tank drain to the front bathroom drain, as promised last week.

8281WS Sewer Mod - Connecting Galley drain to Front Drain

Hope it's useful to someone.

Thanks for posting the write up, we've been planning on something similar, you've made our job much easier.
