Waxing the 5th wheel so it will look like it is new. Getting ready to go to Florence AZ for Thanksgiving to go to the coke ovens on a UTV trail.

Just finished up a long weekend in DC. Stayed at the Cherry Hill Park Campground. We've stayed here numerous times and as always an A++ campground.

Winterized for the freezing temps this week and getting ready for a trip to Virginia Beach for thanksgiving. Never stayed at a KOA figured it would be a nice place to try out the KOAs.

Run the awning out to dry it and put a spare landing jack motor/gear box in the front storage.

I have 2 30 amp extension cords to plug my trailer into my garage. I don't like the ends laying on the ground in the rain. These will keep the ends out of the water and make it easier to see.

Made these today a piece of 4" pvc pipe and 2 temporary plug ends I cut a slot out with band saw. I'm going to put a piece of rubber over the slot to seal it. I have seen people make these using a plastic pail and lid like the ones you get ice cream in, but I wanted something a little more sturdy and smaller.

The plastic coffee containers would work also wouldn't they altho they wouldn't look as nice.

Removed and exchanged my 400/800 inverter for a 750/1500 model. Installed it in about an hour. Television and margarita machine are happy.

Nice, a inverter is on my list to do. I just haven't decided on the size yet. Nice job.

Put her to bed for the winter as the first wave is on the way. Also changed the lock on the storage compartment to match the main entry door. Also added locks matching the main entry to the two propane tank access doors in the V nose.
