I think my fridge switch broke again. The service guy at the dealership showed me how to take it apart so when I go out this weekend I will see if I can figure it out. It's supposed to be cold (40-60) luckily it's just the wife and I this weekend so no kids to entertain in the cold. I bought a bunch of stuff and put better tools in the truck so that I can get that pin box level installed. I will also get to test the hitch since I had to raise it up because of the bed damage to the truck last trip.

Good camping weekend even if it was a little cold. I installed the water quick connects and it was a huge help. I also installed a large level on the pin box. Anyone know how to rotate the photos?

I got the idea from Emm-Dee a few pages back. Much better/easier using those quick connects. Now I need to work on the one key change and the thumb locks addition/change.

Just curious. Did anyones come with a dvd player or a way to cast from a mobile device? What are the rca connections behind the tv on the wall? I pulled the cover off and the wires seem to run down to the bottom of the camper but I couldn't figure out where they go. What brought this on is for the times it rains I want to watch movies inside. The Sony stereo that ours came with does not play dvds like I thought it would. There seems to be no connections for installing a dvd player other than sitting it on the mantle of the fireplace, which I'd rather not do. What do you have or what works for you?

Pretty sure playing a DVD, etc., through the existing system would involve a bunch of fabrication, wiring and just plain work.

I just hooked up an Apple TV box and an Amazon Fire box to the hdmi inputs.
Works great.

I had some Best Buy gift cards and bought a Sony dvd player that would also Miracast. I have a Note 5 that I download movies to with Amazon Prime but the Note 5 can only wireless cast. It does not use MHL like the previous models. The player was about $90 but it works and basically cost me nothing since I had the cards from when I upgraded my phones back in September. When traveling I store it in the upper cabinet. When I need to use it sits on the fireplace mantle for now.

Every trip out I always check the outside of camper for any damage. Last trip I found a missing screw on this trim on living room slide. I couldn't find the exact screw but did replace it with a similar one. This time I noticed that the trim has pulled away from the side of the slide wall. Possibly because of the previously missing screw. When I look down behind the trim it looks like there were more screws holding it in but they are no longer there? There are no holes in the trim to indicate that screws had been put in yet the slide wall I can see holes. I am thinking of getting longer screws and installing them at the same level as the other ones on that trim. There is a metal tube set back about an inch that looks like it should be okay to use some self tapping screws on. Anyone else's look like mine? Also what type of caulk should I use to seal it back up once I put the screws in?

I still need to put screws in those side panels. I think I finally found the seam to caulk in the shower. We have had water on the outside of the shower but it rarely gets on the floor. I took the shower head and sprayed it around until I figured out where the water was coming from.
