Unplugged the thermistor on advice of RV service center because frig temp came up from 34° to 54° in 2 days. He feels the thermistor may be faulty and advised unplug to see if temp drops. Unplugged at 1:00pm. Now at 9:00pm, 8 hours later, temp is 36°. So tomorrow I'll install a new thermistor. Wonder how hard it'll be to feed the little end thru the back of the frig.

Also mounted a remote control wall hanger next to the bed to put remote, phone and reading glasses in.

About your truck. You should always replace both batteries. The old battery will just draw down the new battery now shortening it's life span. The 12.79 is only a surface charge voltage. A carbon pile load test and test each cell will tell you the health of the batteries. Not looking for a debate on the topic, it's your money.

No worries. I agree with you. I will likely buy another battery when I get back from my trip. The truck is 5 years old and I'm sure the other battery will go soon.

My old truck had a battery short out and it did take the other good battery with it. The battery I just replaced has had the green indicator light show black for 2 years. I thought this past winter would do them in, but we had a fairly mild winter and the truck always started fine. I don't know what is up with this one though. I don't trust AutoZone and their testing. I've been burned on alternator and starter tests before. I took the battery in on the chance it would test ok and there was something screwy with the sight glass. Since it didn't, I figured replacing one would be a little insurance if the other one decided to tank. I'm just interested in getting to the beach. Getting back... I'm not so concerned about.

Fixed kitchen sink coming apart from counter

After a failed attempt at a warranty repair on my Grey Wolf for my kitchen sink coming apart from my counter I decided to brace it from underneath so it won't separate again. Dealert put a couple of tiny scresults in and some glue and it all came apart with the first use.

I just go down to the river sites are more level and they pump you out for free on certain days, clean campground except for the RV storage Eye sore up at the top, but like that place as well as Lake & Shore and Timothy Lake South.

Even the spots just past the storage lot aren't bad. The wagon wheel loops are all pretty hilly. But, orientation with friends won over levelness. To fix these sites (need to "terrace"/stair-step them) would be a major investment in landscaping + a long-term commitment to upkeep.

Would installing a "snip the tip" at this point be a good idea? Should give you a little more control than the sliding fin thing.

(Unless I'm completely not understanding; and if so- ignore this post.)

Small projects, but needed projects.
Also added backspash to the washroom wall...
