Just got back from rounding all the material up. Garage door tracks, 8 rollers, 20' of 1.5"x1.5"x0.125" angle and picked up the awning bracket support blanks.

DH installed the King Jack antenna just now and it doubled the number of channels we get now. (dang it, the thumbs up icon has disappeared again)

What did you do to your camper today?

I started this morning by dropping off DS and DW at his school for the their field trip and then I went to CW. I grabbed a few items, Screen Door Cross Bar, Exterior Cable TV Receptacle and Progressive pepper duo corer but really wanted few few more stuff Talked to the CW Tech about my options to repair the broken WHD, he told me the cheapest solution is to take it to a welding shop to add a new piece and buy another friction bar for the partsto replace the friction bar I lost between here and the coast.
After CW I then headed over to Walmart picked up a 2 man rent as a surprise for DS and also a adjustable truck net. Then went to grocery store to pick up some groceries for our Memorial Day weekend camping trip to Pismo Beach and stopped to gas up. Got Home and did the following:

Washed and wax truck and trailer while it rain off and on, just had to get that dirt off and wax in

Relocated the battery cut-off switch from the center to the right side of the strap so battery strap strap can fit in properly

Installed the Screen door handle

I will have to install the cable receptable later, not enough time to do it

Then I made a sweet chili con carne and let it cook in the rice cooker for a few hrs to bring to the camping trip. So far I have just finished packing my clothes tonight(9pm) I will pack the rest of the items and head out before Lunch time

Made an all aluminum ladder mount for our new Tailgater which will mount either low or high depending on the location. The knob will allow the Tailgater to be rotated to get the handle pointing North and then lock it to prevent turning. The Tailgater base I made will also fit in the tripod I used for the old Dish antenna.

Pulled the 5et from storage to find a small dent in the lower skirting. Cleaned and lubed all slide gaskets and doors, lubed the slide racks and drive gears, nnice. Slides run smooth as silk now. Sealed up around the bottom of the hit water heater flange, sealed the fridge opening that wood and foam wss exposed to the weather. Stored and reorganized basement and underneath the bed. Either tonight or tomorrow wash and wax. Taking off in a week Sunday for 2 weeks away through northern and eastern Ontario. I also found my wedge had moved back, going to cut either a piece of drill rod or threaded rod as OC had suggested.

Fixed the leak from under the bottom rail of the shower door, fixed the leak from the split valve that supplies water at the back of the toilet, added white graphite power to all of the locks to help lubricate them, sanitized the FW tank then put the filter in place. Finally, mounted the storage tube for the spare sewer hose from the ceiling of the basement. When we travel to WA or MT. I'll pick up a 5" square plastic fence post and some accessories so I can switch out the factory fitted (and useless) main sewer storage holder.

Installed the Maxxaire II cover over the bathroom fan. Was going to try out the new brake controller but found the fuse in the truck was blown. Replaced that and verified that it worked but was not able to set it up. Hopefully, this afternoon

Got Glenn Jurcyzk's garage door rails mounted in his basement floor for the pull out shelf finished. Shelf ended up being 34" wide and 52" long. Glenn got the shelf painted and will install it tomorrow provided the paint is dry.

Finished with Glenn's roll out shelf. He has reloaded it and ready for the road. Put a restraining cable on it so it will not inadvertently be pulled completely off the rails. It pulls out to where the rear pair of 3 pairs of rollers stays in the track. He will post pictures when he gets home and sorts thru his junk.
