Problem is- (for me!) we don't use that door that often and it would negate the benefit of getting shoes out of my dang way.

Actually... you make a great point. I have a false panel that I just found/noticed when installing my EMS. I wonder if I can re-purpose that for shoes.

I too would like to get the shoes out of the doorway. I have showed her a hook rack that mounts to the wall would be ideal to hang the shoes on, nope.

I ought to do it anyway. To heck with her.

Yea, I'm gonna do it!

I think.

I told my wife about 40 some years ago that "I wear the pants".She said ok,but if I ever wanted to get into hers again we had to share!I said the two words that every married man needs to use--"Yes Dear". Still use them.

Married and Divorced twice never had to deal with that but being single with a GF in a 50/50 isn't too bad either

You bet, I always get the last 2 words in our discussions too. "Yes, dear"

Cut ours by about a third. Getting ready to head back to MO from MN (1 week, 1400 mile trip), so we can get ready for the rally, too. You know the drill . . .

Cleaned and inspected roof, very winter dirty and there are a couple of small spots that need to be re-caulked. Going to need to do another cleaning to get it as clean as it should be.

Bought it a pair of expandable hoses (with metal connectors) to replace my black tank flush hoses.

Repainted the 2 rear stabilizer scissor jacks. The paint was flaking off and they were rusting.

Got the motor out of the TV. Getting a 7.3 out is a real pain! Started on the upgrades tonight.
