Changed the oil in the generator and started it up (first starting of the year..)
So now what can I do for the rest of the night?
Drink beer and dream about camping?

YOU MEAN TO SAY THAT IS ALL IT TOOK!

It would take more than that to make mine happy!

Just kidding, she's got me, that's good enough for her!

BTW, the shelves look great.

Just remember, a 4 or 5 hr "Atta boy" can be wiped out with a 2 second "Oh, ----!"

Yeah....I installed my 2 years ago and also had a few self tapping bolts that weren't. They did send me quite a bit of replacement hardware, but by then I got impatient and went to Ace and bought my own. btw...how long did it take you to drill your first hole? It took me quite a while. Something about taking a drill to a brand new camper bothered me.

Kinda like me when I decided to modify an Undercover tonneau cover to use while towing. I only gave $70 for it, but had an exact duplicate under the back deck that I paid $800 for. The $70 one sat in the garage for 3 days before I got the courage to put a Skilsaw to it.

One muffler. SS tips. Just a broken down 05 with 90,000+ miles on it.

Tips were required after towing the 5er the first time. Couldn't hear yourself inside the truck with the exhaust bouncing back and it doesn't have a loud muffler.

I like this wish my wife would appreciate the things I do more, she puts up such a fuss when I try to make something better, then afterwards likes it. The fuss is so annoying but hearing I was right after balances out.

Got a good warm spell yesterday had a foot on top now down to 3" ,went around the ground with the snow blower to get the 3' of snow out of the way so I could get it out if necessary.
It's melting fast going to be a lot of flooding not far from here they had 200" of snow for the winter.

I hear you. I was working on some other stuff and she was planning on her mind where she was going to put things. I asked her if it would help if she had shelves. These were her words "I never thought of that and that would be awesome if you can do that". Well next thing you know I'm researching the Internet to see what other people have done and then we went to homedepot the next day to see what I can put together. A half a day of labor and what you see is what she got. Like I said she's excited and happy.

Not sure why they don't have shelves from the factory.... So much wasted space Imo.

I dropped the front down so the 10/12 inches of snow that has started to melt can run off faster.

Brand new trailer, so i put stuff from our trade in in such as tvs, keurig, silverware, dishes, etc. I also bought two yamaha ef2000is and parallel cable, so i fired them up and tested different appliances, furnace, ac's, electric fire place. The only thing i couldn't power was both (15k & 13.5k)ac's. Also put a set of camco step supports on
