First did side walls as high as I could reach. Then did side walls from step ladder. Finished up doing cab, wheels/tires and sealing as needed.

I had some reflectix hanging around so I put some up in the skylight in the shower. We had some store credit at the dealer so I got a storm door rod. My parents have a pushed out area on their storm door and I didn't want that happening to mine. Also working on putting some bracing up under the cabinet and adding shelving in the overhead cabinet in the kitchen

That is going to be so sweet. Looks really nice and should give your roof years more of life.

Well done.

Well, I finished the install of my Progressive Industries EMS HW-50C. After its startup routine, it began scrolling through its monitor sequence just as the manual stated. I've learned that E-0 is a good thing....lol. My only critique of the unit is that the box is to small. SO cord might be ok, but 6/3 wg romex is very difficult to manage between the clamp and the contractor, especially on the load side where the toroid coils go around the wire. Anyway, I'm glad it's finished, and I feel better for the protection it provides. I don't contort as well as I used to!

Hey how do you like your GM 2500HD, assuming it has the Duramax? I am looking between the GMC and F350 but Fords are expensive so far GMC is looking good

Bought a crap-ton of stuff for the camper today so we don't have to worry about forgetting something like deodorant, toothpaste, soap, shampoo and a ton of kitchen stuff.

Also ordered 150' of rope lights to go under the camper and around the inside ledge of the outdoor kitchen. Still waiting on the awning lights to get here. Although with the forecast we have for the next few days I wouldn't be doing anything anyway..

Should have been getting it ready to go camping tomorrow for the weekend but the weather for this weekend did not cooperate. So now will have to wait for another 3weeks for camping.

Last night I put some bracing under the shelves in the kitchen cabinet so that it is more sturdy and I can place more than a few plastic bowls in there. Removed the wobbly leg collapsing setup table legs for the dinette and put folding table legs under it. I also neglected to account for human legs while sitting at the table and now we have to turn it sideways if we want to sit at the dinette.

I've decided that Amazon is dangerous.
Been buying way too much stuff recently

Most recent purchases: -

* Reese 83003 lube plate (for Titan 16K hitch) - for use with Revolution/Sidewinder instead of all that messy grease.

* A rear-view mirror stem clamp that I'm re-purposing part of to build a custom mount for my Furrion rear camera display.

* A 2-1/4" socket and 1/2" to 3/4" drive adapter, for loosening (and then re-torqueing) the Revolution hitch arm.

* A shoe rack for by the main door of the camper.

* A pair of "couch caddy's" to sit on the arms of the sofa and hold drinks and remotes etc (I'll post photos *if* they work out ok, they might be a bit too large for the arms of our sofa)

* A Camco 40003 water tank filler spout (to make it easy to fill the fresh tank)

* A bottle of 303 Protectant (for the rubber slide seals)

* A 2" foam mattress topper (for one of the bunks)

* A pair of Camco Sunshield vent cushions (to block out the heat/sun)

* A 60" bunk ladder (which I've since trimmed to length)

* A wall-plate and 2 switches for turning off the outside and bedroom speakers (so I don't have to remember to do it every time I turn on the iRV-66)

* A Dometic LPGC10 LP Gas Checker (handheld thingy for checking propane tank levels)

All that and I still need to order the new tires, and possibly a Viair compressor
I think I may be bankrupt before I even start our summer trip

D'oh!
Well, at least it's another good reason to eat outside more often

Go to Lowes/HD and get an octagon box cover and pop rivet it to the door and then drill the cover to accept the strut anchor and bolt/screw to it. I used alum. plate, but the OB covers will work.
