I have been modifying my factory "bike rack" so it will hold my Yeti 75 cooler, a propane bottle and a spot for my 4000 watt generator, here's a little teaser with it primed, painted it today (black), should be able to post some good pics tomorrow

Condo's almost cleaned out and the storage unit is nearly full of stuff we don't anticipate needing for the next five years or so......May first looking pretty solid for going full time - FINALLY!! Look out America, we've got everywhere to go and the rest of our lives to get there....

Replaced the Godawful FR1 filter housing with an Omni unit from Menards. I bought a case of carbon filters last year, but traded RV's so they will not work. I'm not going to pay $30 for a filter when I can get one just as good for 1/3 the price.

I like Youroo's step mod!

I personally added a few more LEDs, installed a battery cutoff switch, cleaned up the hole in my hitch so my foot clip can be used as a hitch lock, fixed the door on my WFCO panel (broke a tab off, fixed with a tiny wood screw)

Sent from my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 using the FRF mobile app.

Fixed the refrigerator drain tube, changed 3 of the switches on the lights from simple on-off to double pole double throw on-off-on switches, cleaned and started packing for the weekend.

Plugged it in, fired up the fridge, turned on the heater cause I'm sleeping out there as the wife's family invades my house. It's a room issue, we're tight at four, tonight it's going to be nine.

Put the first non-functional mod on our trailer, an alum bumper cover that TOWTA was not all that enthusiastic about. Also put a K&N air cleaner element in her old Caddy which she didn't even say Thank you. The old fuddy duddy!

Also checked the pressure in the nitrogen filled spare. Had 50# in it 2 yrs ago, it was down to 30# today. So much for the "doesn't leak like regular air" theory. Hog wash! Filled it to 51#.

DW's 401(k) Plan

While the DW did some cleaning in the TT, I worked on a few things:

Started adjusting the brackets on the trailer for the Equal-I-zer. I took some measurements and my dealer didn't do all that great of a job installing things when I bought the Flagstaff. First step in adjusting - now, I have air bags to put on the Armada and adjust the rest of the hitch.

It was cool in the TT when we started, so I kicked on the heat. Wasn't getting much movement through the floor vents, but boy was it warm at the intake screen on the backside of the dinette. Pulled out the drawer and took off the intake screen and shined a light inside.... one of the screws was missing which holds on the back of the furnace! The bottom of that side of the dinette was exceptionally hot. Removed cushions and plywood from seat and installed new screw. Worked great.

The Genesis GT 3.0 would not come on. No indicator lights, nothing. Checked every fuse I can find - all good. System worked last year before we stored TT for winter. I've even had a running email with Concertone Support. They say there is a fuse behind the unit next to the wire harness. After a few emails back and forth, and Support pointing out the fact that I am blind, I finally found the fuse. It is NOT an in-line fuse, as I was looking for. It is plugged directly in the back of the unit, right next to the wiring harness plugs. Believe me, it's easy to miss! Especially if the fuse size doesn't have the white paint in the "15"!

Now to work on the house dishwasher that has no juice for some reason.

I just finished cleaning out everything I might want later in preparation for a trip to the dealer midweek for the fan install.

Drop it off one day pick it up the next, lot to be said for a local dealer.

Went out, unlocked it, opened up all the slides...it's pest control day!

I always have him do the RV when he's here, and he doesn't charge anything extra.

This time next week she'll be loaded up and ready to geaux!
