Lack of mods

Seems like everyone has quit making mods or they are just not posting any pictures. What gives?

As the gamers say, "RL (Real Life) got in the way"
This fall the next round of "heavy mods" will start.

Minor mods already done:

Hard Start Capacitor
Hardwired my Franks Autotransformer with in and out volt/ammeters.
Cleaned and purged the gray and black tanks.
Awning Remote Control
Awning Lighting

Planned mods this fall:

Solar fridge cooler
Reseal all cargo doors
Remove all cargo door frames and re-install with Butyl Rubber tape.
Drop the Pin Box Cover and check cross beam for cracks.

The Gray tank got a dose of bacon grease in July. I am getting it ready for the Mid September 10 day "Jaunt" through the Northeast. Camping in Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Vermont, and down through New York.

Then the "Big Push" for the January trip South to the Keys (assuming DW knee surgery goes well). If not then we will be done for the season after September.

Hope everything goes great with DW's surgery. Sister in law had one two yrs ago and recovered completely and went back to work in 2 months and she was 70 yrs old.
