Replaced the outside cable connection that was broken. Forest River sent out a replacement and all is good.

Added another LED light to the main living area/kitchen where it was dark.

Installed some slide out baskets in our pantry. This was an inexpensive solution to gain more access to our pantry. I installed them in the center and bottom shelves, leaving the top shelf open for larger items. Only around $10 each at WalMart.

Not sure how long they will hold up, but at $10 it is worth the gamble. And I couldn't find any other cabinet slides to fit the cabinet.

No pictures yet, but I installed magnetic catches on the very bottom cabinet that the furnace is behind. I want to get cabinet knobs installed first. The ultimate plan is to put some sort of small lockable box in that area.

Lowered my king pin by 1 inch today so that when I disconnect my trailer it shows +0.1 on my auto leveler when I disconnect so that the re-hitch feature will work properly.

Not to the camper, but re-painted the hitch head on my Reese Titan hitch, to prevent any further rusting.

I have a looooong to do list for this weekend, of things to do on the 5er before our big trip.
We'll see how many things on the list I actually manage to get done by Monday morning.

I bought the American Tonneau off real truck.com 2 day shipping free for under $300, I looked at Lund and Trifecta but they were $389 to $489

I dropped mine off at the dealer to get the bathroom door fixed. It looks like the middle hinge is crooked and the door is a little hard to close.

We are at the campground! Trip number 3 for the year.

I'm becoming a little more disappointed in the level up system every time. In auto mode it tries to level the RV very high. The last trip out, we were in a different site and I "reset the level point" according to the instructions. This trip, it appears to have leveled with the exact same jack placement as the driver side rear jack was not even making contact when the system said level. I had to make corrections.


I think I am just going to start doing it in manual mode. To avoid being so unnecessarily high.

My only other worry is if I can handle coming down the bedroom stairs this weekend. LOL. The ribs are finally back to normal.

I have three openings and three fans in those openings. All blow in or out. Great mod!

Wow,I think the Grand Design is far superior in quality than a Columbus. Following this group and the Columbus group I would be very nervous about buying a Columbus. The constant units being returned to the factory is unbelievable. Plus I don't believe you can even buy one in the New England area any more.
