If I had a barn like that, I would have it filled in no time and the DW would kill me.

Protected the exposed gas lines with the flexible split plastic wiring conduit. Should save the rocks and dirt from flying up and potentially causing damage - I hope.

  • Took it out for a four day weekend
  • Replaced the analog thermostat with a digital.
  • Ordered and received a 8' adapter hose that allows the use of my Camp Chef Explorer stove with the trailer's gas system.
  • Found a car wash big enough to handle the trailer, so I can finally wash it! (Washing vehicles at home is not allowed due to drought conditions)

Let us know when you kick yourself.

I kicked myself on the first trip out after I changed mine.

I thought, now why didn't I do that before?

Went shopping at ikea for some much needed organization back in the bunkhouse. It's the one area that we haven't fully moved into yet.

Finished removing our fresh water tank after it decided it didn't want to be with the RV. Repaired the coroplast and will take the fiver to the dealer when we get back from the lake next week. Thank God it didn't happen while towing.

Spent last 2 1/2 days figuring out why my King Flex wouldn't receive any stations....turns out somehow it got on Dish satillights and off Directs. Once problem solved, was able to check out my new runs of coax and connectors...now have 6 different outside ports, 3 for inside tv and 3 for outside tv....now can support 2 receivers, watching different channels off the Flex, and not have runs of cable on ground....although, if under trees, I still can use the 50' cable.

Last night I installed a new towel bar in our hallway (bath and beach towels are adding up!) and installed a pair of IKEA Grundtal Rails across the kitchen for hanging various accouterments.

Replaced the uncomfortable sofa with a new loveseat sofa recliner. I know I lose a bed, with the inflatable mattress and the storage drawer underneath, but I like the trade off since we didn't really need the extra bed. I'll be trying it out this weekend to see if it was a good decision if I can get my son out of it!

Yesterday, my wife assembled the IKEA shelves and got some control to the bunkhouse:

The white thing on the left is a fold-up table that I put on wheels.

And then today, I had a RV repairman come out to the campsite to do a few things:

1. Fixed a water leak at the edge of my bedroom slide. Apparently a "gutter" at the bottom of the slide came loose.

2. Fixed a problem with my Steadyfast stabilizers- the knobs froze up due to winter towing on salt roads. It was so bad leaving the last campground that I couldn't retract the landing gear until I dropped the Steadyfast foot off of the landing gear itself.

3. Talked to my about some bedroom A/C issues that I'm having; each night the A/C and fan shut off until we turn the thermostat off, wait, and then back on.

4. Fixed a slow drip from my low point drain because I didn't properly tape up the threads.

While he was doing that, I tightened up a hose connection to my water regulator to stop another very slow drip.

All told, it was nice knocking somethings off of my honeydoo list.

Oh, and last night, we placed an Amazon order that contains various stuff.

Bite the bullet and get a tube of Silver Goop and coat all the threads on your Steadyfast knob threads and you're set for years. Needless to say, use it very sparingly.

Thanks. I'll contact the seller to get the skinny on shipping.
