Since we can't pick it up for another week... we went and looked at it again and confirmed our desire to bring it home.

Besides looking at pictures taken last fall and wishing it were in my driveway, I have been working on a way to mount a 24 led in our pup. Think I have it figure out using a shower rod and a very compact fully articulated mount I got off amazon.

I used to have to put the dish on the bed & wedge it in place while traveling. Now, it fits right in the basement!

Not so much the trailer but had air bags installed on TV. If there is a forum friend out there that has had bags installed on a 2008-20011 f250 I would like to see the install. Mine done look right but I have nothing to compare it to. :-(. This is my install. Click image for larger version

Greesed all the axels and hitch setup. I also took out the camping mat and gave it a good wash.

Fixed the Murphy bed which was falling apart. Hope the internal aluminum frame isn't broke since it nearly impossible to inspect it without a weekend of work taking it all apart. Cross your fingers.

Also found out that more items I thought was wood was really a wood photo paper glueed on to unknown substance.

contemplated how to modify the one closet to turn it into a nightstand and shirt closet. Don't need 2 full length closets with full length mirrors.. I need one set of drawers, a night stand a short hanging closet and a regular closet. Also trying to figure out how I want to add shelving to the kitchen cabinets. a 4' tall kitchen cabinet with 2 single doors and one shelf at the 2' height. Just doesn't make sense to me. Maybe when Camperland calls tomorrow for updated warranty info, My service gal can ask about the cabinets. in the mean time I built a pole with shelves for the shower, built and installed a cabinet in the bathroom for toilet paper, and a towel shelf. Hung a picture frame with coat hooks, for my keys and coats, and tried to figure out how to make my dvd that is installed actually play on my tv..... Still can't figure that one out, and trying to decide whether it will be worth it to invest in the pickett fencing that I found online to build a fence around my trailer for my pooches.

Got everything out of the DP and de-winterized it. Watched it go up the road to the new owner (a good friend), only to get a call that it was down on power. We think we have it figured out, and I am going to order a few parts tomorrow. It was running fine the last time we had it out and was sold as such. So... I will do my best to get it right. It still runs, and doesn't throw any codes, but is just down on power.

Got the TV mounted in the bunkhouse of the fiver. A 32" TCL Smart TV from Costco. Also, got the Playstation "installed" for next weekend. The kids can't play it during the week, so I went ahead and hooked it up. I'm sure they will want to play next weekend (at night), and I am sure we will have some baseball teammates over at least one night. The PS will work out fine.

Also, got most of the home goods in the new fiver. The CFO has been working hard to get drawer / cabinet liner down. She also has the new mattress cover and sheets in place. Hopefully I just have to load it up with clothes and food when I get back from Mexico on Friday.

Looking forward to camping next weekend!

Not the RV, but finally finished the lighting installation for its new carport home. Not pleased with the floodlights because of the color temperature. Plus, even though there's 300 watts total I don't think it covers enough. Will be replacing it with LED lights soon. Now, if I can just get grass to start growing again the two 125' trenches I had to dig for water and electricity will disappear.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

Put in a 1,000 watt modified sine - wave inverter. I'll see if a television is something we want to add to this little toy hauler. De - winterized the rig and we're heading out for afew nights tomorrow!

Stock seat on the 310 is plastic, but seems much better built then the one on the 300 - camping world does sell a wood/rubberized seat for the 310, but I don't think we'll need it.

Also stocked the pantry, cleaned and lubed the seals and slide mechanism...

All set for our first trip of the season; which is good, since we leave in 3 days!

Not today, but hadn't had time to post up...

We were planning our first trip with the new TT this last weekend, but the girls got sick. We canceled the trip, not so much as feeling sorry for the sick kids, but because I didn't want them projectile vomiting all over 'my' new camper.

So Saturday we pulled it to the local neighborhood park and set up in the parking lot, so we could put the new linens and stuff in. And work on organization. Oh, and so dad could test-nap his bed...

We must have been a sight, with the slide and awning out, table and chairs set up, and eating our picnic lunch, in the parking lot of a municipal pool and park...

Weather is starting to turn here, so I started ordering stuff for my spring list!

Ordered a hose and fittings to use my grill off the quick connect
Ordered a matching rear lock mechanism and cylinders to replace the 751 keys
Ordered matching Master Lock coupler lock and receiver lock
Going from 5 keys down to 2!

Have a bunch of other stuff on the list, but that'll get me started!

Which hose and fitting did you order? I found a CamCo kit, but it has a 10 ft hose. I only need about 4 ft.

I ordered a 10' hose with male and female ends off of amazon. There are a ton of options for lengths. Maybe look outside of the Camco brand?

Installed 2 Blue streak dispensers and a cupholder in the Georgetown. Had to give Carl at Blue Streak a call, as I couldn't remember if you could mount before the vacuum break or not. As it turns out, it works just fine although he does like to install after if possible, but with Dometic toilet it's not possible. Click image for larger version
