Good, using the genset was unnecessary when I'm sure they have shore power there.

Things didn't go as planed today. I had planed on getting the gear installed on the slide rack but had to take our Boxer in for some eye surgery. Hopefully get the RV done by the weekend. Trip next week is canceled, Kelsey our Boxer will require time to recover and a couple of trips back to the animal ophthalmologists.

Thinking of pulling the curb side plastic trough out in the basement and putting a shelf in there under the floor for misc. items and add an alum door on the plastic trough to access the shelf. There is a pretty big space down there for light weight items.

Went to Ikea and bought a bunch of items for the Rockwood while camping in Ottawa. Visited the huge RV Clearance sale at the Canadian Tire Centre in Kanata. Saw a nice Evergreen Fifth Wheel we loved, perfect layout, big basement, RV fridge, Mor Ryde and 16,000 lbs.need New tow Vehicle again and then they would make me a deal...

Well, pulled it and evidently my CRS is working overtime as I thought it was open farther in right under the floor. SO, added more screws to the rolled panel into the bottom and will make a squared off storage area instead of the plastic trough. Will fab some aluminum end panels that will seal it and then add a plywood bottom and make a new cover for the top that is also squared off. Will gain a little more storage lengthwise for small stuff like the rocking chair boards, dirt screws, awning tie down straps if I can talk some guy into making me some poles.
While I make parts for the curbside, I'll probably make them for the driverside also. Don't like the plastic troughs anyway.

Is this for old folks so they won't fall off their rocker?

Boards you can put under the rockers on gravel, sand, etc and still use the rocking chairs.

Is this one of your inventions?

And does it have a motor?
