Nothing to the camper, my air over hydraulic post jack came and had to make a new adaptor to lift the trailer up between the wheels. When the paint dries, will see if it will lift it.

Confused the wife with the camper. Lol After two years of ownership I am getting tired of running out the power cord every week to keep the battery charged. I have on occasion charged it and disconnected the negative terminal. Well I charged it today and put a wing nut with a split lock washer on the negative post. It wasn't overly difficult to use a wrench, crescent or socket to disconnect it. But it is much easier with a wing nut. Its not a true disconnect but it will work for me.

Well, had to cut 2" off the bottom of the adaptor to get it to fit. Typical of me for not measuring the difference in the height of the 2 jacks. Made the new adaptor the same length as the old one, but after cutting it off, it does fit and lifts both wheels off the ground. Success!

You'll get tired of doing that too. Ask me how I know?

A $28 disconnect sure works wonders!

It's about as true a disconnect as you can get.

Yes it is, I was attempting to say it wasn't a true disconnect switch. For me its easier than using tools and I am sure Timex will prove to be correct. I will eventually tire of using the wingnut method and install a proper switch. I am retired Navy and we usually work our way to the easiest method, sooner or later.

Installed a Progressive Industries EMS-HW30C, a Blue Seas 6006 battery ON-OFF switch, and Oxygenics Body Spa. Picked up and installed a 72" shower hose to replace the 60" hose that came with the Oxygenics shower head because my TT has a tub/shower faucet mounted low in the shower.

Also painted a Honeywell digital thermostat satin black in prep for installing tomorrow.

Replaced toilet vent pipe cap with this one that is supposed to siphon the odor out of the black tank and keep odor down when flushing the toilet.

My husband made a couple drawers for easier storage. One under the sink and one under the dinette. Dinette was all open storage and hard to access things. Front of sink was just that little sponge holder. We were able to keep the same door fronts so it still looks great and cost us hardly anythingClick image for larger version

ID:	77194. We even found the same knob for the sink drawer at an RV surplus so we are going to put it on the door front to match the drawer underneath it.

I like the top drawer, the old one is really just a waste of space once you see your version.

I am liking the drawer you installed under the dinette. We have been thinking of doing the same thing.

I agree totally! When we first looked at our TT, we fell in love with the interior but I couldn't believe there was only one fairly small drawer for the whole kitchen. I know every little bit of space counts for something and I probably would have never even used that sponge holder thing. Even though the new drawer is not that big, it will be used, for sure and we didn't have to change the look of the outside of it.
