Added bumper grill to the 2015 Silverado 2500. Some brilliant engineer at GM placed the trans cooler behind a large opening in the lower bumper just the right height to collect rocks and damage the coils. Found a bolt on ( 30 mins) matching grill to fix the problem. Before and aft pics attached.

Didn't know the 2105 Silverados were out yet. Nice looking grill

Washed the Roo and tried to clean the dead bugs off that had the nerve to die on my new RV, charged the batteries and locked down the inside for a trip this weekend then another next weekend, and finally a week long trip at the end of the month.

Don't laugh. Our local speedway has trailer races one night a year. We hadn't used our Coleman pup for a few years and the mice got into it, so it ended up in the trailer race in summer 2010. Unfortunately, I never heard how well it did.

Assembled a new bunk ladder. I really should have stained it, but I'm calling it "au natural". I'll install it the next time the camper is here- it's going to require cutting it down some and getting fancy with the installation since the camper doesn't have a 1" lip like bunk beds do.

Is it a straight up and down ladder or angled out at the bottom?

Someone on the forum converted the flip out sponge rack under the sink to a silverware drawer. Does anyone know what thread it was?

I remember a recent one, but can't find it. I did find this one, though:

That's TBD based on where the bottom of the ladder lands because the bunk bed is in a slide. If the bottom of the ladder ends up on the slide floor, then stationary; if it ends up on the camper floor, then removable (unless I get really nutty and put rollers on the bottom of it- I'm just not sure how sturdy they are for daily use up and down by my heavy-footed daughter).

I hope not for a late night snack. A little chocolate does wonders.

If you decide on removable, a bolt thru each upright at the top (w/nuts....1 nut on each side of upright to lock bolt) and fab 2 alum. angle brackets. Attach the angle to bed and slot the the other side of angle to create a slot for the bolt shank to rest in, creating a saddle.....round off corners..... HD/Lowes has differant lengths/widths of heavy enough alum. angle. I make bunk beds for a store here in town and works good.

Thanks, Bob! If you have pictures of what you're talking about at all, I'd appreciate it. I'm not that bright...
