Well, Mardy welded up Weezer's all aluminum ladder mount for her satellite antenna and I cleaned it up and bead blasted it. Will put it on a shelf until she comes and picks it up.

Just got done cleaning the roof with some Dicor rubber roof cleaner. Worked beautifully. Now on to a wash/wax combo.

Left my new Andersens at home, darn it.

What did you do to your camper today?

The inlaws came down for a weekend of "get crap done to the camper".

First we installed a central vac.

Then he scraped caulk off of the shower doors.

Then he fixed up on of our over-the-door towel racks that made the door hard to close.

Then I installed one of my 2 storage shelves into the basement storage hatch. Sadly, I could have measure better- the top one was too big to be useful and the bottom is bigger than needed.

He cut back the pin box shroud because it rubbed my Retrax Pro rails on sharp turns.

We installed a broom/Swiffer hanger in the 1/2-bath.

After hauling my sewer tubes around in the bed of my truck for a full season, we installed them under the camper.

Tomorrow are awning lights and a/c duct checking/sealing. I may even get nutty and cut down OldCoot's pole and hang them.

Wife and I decided against building a crib for the one bunk, fortunately! We're just going to live with the pack-and-play on the floor since this is its last season anyway.

I'm sure you could probably sell them and be rid of the problem.

Heck no- I love them thangs! Even if I don't mount them, the extra effort to pull them from the bumper is minuscule to the benefit that they provide.

Had a man wash the camper while we went to granddaughter's graduation. When we got back he said he had hand washed it twice and some black streaks were still faintly visible and he was not happy. He then used the Scotchgard Marine Liquid Wax and after 2 hrs came in the garage just grinning. Hey Bossman, it looks great, black streaks gone, smooth as silk and I can see myself in it. Ask him what he charged. $100 total. Both of us happy campers. Will have him do it again before we go to FL. Super nice man.

Found out it may need to get used next weekend, so I gave it the regular preliminary checks. Oh, changed the bulb over the stove. Now I can see what I'm burning!

YEAHH! Mine, I'm tellin' ya! Don't you let some other scoundrel come by to visit and scarf up my specially-built-just-for-me OC (and Mardy) original satellite mount!




BTW, he's already made the pin box satellite mount, and shipped it to us. It's sitting on the dining room table presently, waiting for DH to make the base plate.

Been giving some serious thought to having Buffy waxed while she's in for TLC at the dealer/service center. Sounds like a BIG job.
