Yesterday finished washing and waxing. Waxed MH for 1st time! Fixed ceiling and holder for headphones in bunk. Fixed crank on vent in kitchen and a/c dash vent, still need to re-install because it has gotten too dang out now! Picked up plastic sheeting to put over screen door so we can leave door open when a/c is on. Installed lower piece, I have to trim upper section to fit curve in screen door, again in the morning when it cools off. Getting ready for Goshen!!

Started to see how I will be mounting the light strip under the awning. Will get it done if it is not toooo hot or if we get rain.

I'm looking into a coax lightning arrestor but need to make sure it will be compatible with the Dish system (the dish gets power over the coax). Any suggestions?

That's not far from Apalachicola where we volunteer at Orman House during the winter. Check it out and if you do, say hi to Ranger Mike from Lloyd and Karen. Here's a link to the park.

Added the TST 507 Tire Pressure Monitoring System to the Silverback 33RL.....any extra safety measures I can take makes for a more stressful ride up and down these highways.....had a couple questions, called the company, and found a most helpful customer service gentleman that I've had the pleasure of talking to in a long time.
