In the last few days, we re-sanitized the water system to get rid of a gosh-awful smell that made you wretch when using the hot water at a couple of faucets (but not all).

And, I hung a paper towel holder from the inside of the outdoor kitchen door above the sink.

Started prepping the TT for the trip to Lake George, Colorado.
Replaced the TV in the bedroom. Replaced the water filter, and fixed the water filter holder where the screws stripped out from the aluminum bar it was screwed into (used rivets so it won't come off again when I have to change it!).
A bunch of things to do but it's going to be worth it on the trip.

We left the camper in Wisconsin 2 weeks ago and came back to the CO2 beeping so I finally added my battery cut off switch.

Proved my theory that I can fill my fresh water tank using my antifreeze bypass/pump and the outdoor shower hose.

Made a couple PVC projects for the wife. A foot wash station and a towel/swimsuit drying rack the wife saw on Pinterest. Also installed a ubiquity wifi booster and my own router so I can run cameras at my year round spot.

First time to need air conditioner. Main unit not cooling properly. Two week wait at dealer to check it. Thanks to FRF and Utube discussions and videos, I concluded the problem was shoddy installation. Sure enough two fist sized holes into "attic" area for wiring. Sealed with aluminum tape. Job done, cold air blowing. Thanks to all who post.

Send a message via Yahoo to bob caldwell
To make it really work good, pull outside cover and insulate the cover on the inside

Removed 2 of the valances on the kids bunks. Having them there made the screens hard to get off. Being an emergency exit, the kids need to be able to easily remove them.
