My trailer is at the shop waiting for me to get back to it to get the new hitch installed.. But we did talk about it.

Thanks for the video. We have the same small storage area in our Sunseeker and have been wondering how to get the struts to fit.

Thanks for sharing!

Fixed a lock on my outdoor kitchen, ran a screw back into the slide wall, and finally measured for my skylight.

Wife hung some Command Hooks for her Mickey Ears and headbands.

Need to come up with a solution for a dresser/cabinet from tipping in our bunkhouse slide. Twice now, we've found it 1/2-laying on its face. Just not certain of the wall.

How about pulling out the top drawer/open door and putting a couple of short screws thru the back into the wall?

That's a good idea. I was thinking an L-brackets. But, I'm still concerned about hitting some kind of stud or something sturdy in the slide wall.

Wouldn't worry about hitting a stud, use 4-6 screws along the top.

Maybe a boat load of museum putty on the back of the cabinet.

More than likely pull the wall down!

Or a couple of 1" strips of 3M double side tape across the entire back. Might be hard to move if you ever decided to move the cabinet.

Tried out the trailer aid we got for x-mas this past year. Figured we had time for the try out before rolling from the CG. Well... did not do so hot. We could not get the trailer high enough. Used a few feet of 2 x 6 and problem solved.

I put up a cabinet in the bathroom above the toilet for a little extra storage. I also mounted a towel bar on the under side of the cabinet.

Got home from work this morning and the deadbolt wouldn't unlock. Good thing the DW was inside and was able to unlock the door for me. Pulled the lock from the door and tried to find what was jamming the cylinder. No luck so I guess I'll just have to use the door handle lock till the new lock gets in

Flushed the pink out yesterday, then removed the under kitchen cabinet whole house filter and resulting extra piping. Removed the outdoor shower hoses while doing the project as I don't see us using it. We have a quick connect fitting outside for water and use it most of the time. If it is not raining will finish de-winterizing tomorrow and start stocking the cupboards.

What did you do to your camper today?

Finally adjusted the panels that FR put in cabinets to protect wires and expandable ducts. It gained me about 12 inches. More storage room is always better.
