I got my flat put back on (bad valve stem) and checked on the other stems. No signs of leaking in those but they don't have enough thread available to secure my TPMS sensors so I will be bringing those in for replacement.
Got her all cleaned out and Springerized for our upcoming 3-day trip and the weather does not look very good but we don't care...a bad weather day in the RV beats one at home!!

I added to table post bases to the bottom of my table so I can turn the table 45 degrees as an option for more room for two which removes the ability to sit at the outside of the u shaped dinette. Also installed a towel rack, hand towel holder and tp holder in the bathroom all from lowes. Also a soap dish via auto emblem 3m 2 sided tape near the shower head. Also installed a 40 inch vizio smart tv in place of the fake rock instead of on top of it as the fake rock was the same size as the tv.

Spent the night in it Saturday night. Hooked up the water just to flush some of the pink stuff out and give us the ability to use the toilets.

This coming weekend will be our first full weekend it in so I can get the water filters hooked up and give it a good cleaning.

I did find evidence of some critter that ate a packet of holding tank cleaner. Don't know if the stuff is toxic or not but I didn't find any droppings or a body.

Seems like a fellow lost his awning lock and I went out to measure mine and couldn't find mine either SOOOOOO, instead of having to make one, I had to make 2. Some folks would loose their heads if it weren't fastened on.

Tonight i removed all the old grease from the fifth wheel and coupler. All cleaned up and fresh to pull out Thursday Morning. I tested my new fuel injected generator, replaced one that I thought was not quite right. Works great! Packed the awning mat, fire wood and blue tank in the back of the truck. Mounted thule on the truck roof for the bikes.

Licensed and registered it. Also put some mud-dauber screens over the heater exhaust.

Worked up the courage to drill a 4" hole in the side of my camper for a dryer vent. Took me about 2 hrs of checking and double checking to make sure I was in the right spot (really about 10 minutes for that, the rest just trying to talk myself into it). All went smooth after I finally pulled the trigger. Got it drilled, installed and sealed up in under 5 minutes.
