Great idea if I had a welder. There's always a better way to do things, I just make it work the best I can with what I've got available. Receiver only cost $10.

I did this to store it in my shed in 1 piece.

They say if I weld something to my bumper it will void my warranty. Just a receiver from Harbor Freight I secured to the wall. These are cheap also and may be able to used somewhere on the tongue etc.

This weekend we got the fiver all shiny and pretty for the NC Rally. I put new plastic shelving in the bedroom closet. We also hung a key rack near the door for the dogs leash and collar as well as a coat rack near the door for our jackets. I managed to find matching key and coat racks that were the perfect color wood for my fiver. Since DH was afraid to use screws after the TV fiasco (another story), we used double sided mounting tape that says it can hold up to 30 lbs. hopefully it will hold well.

I got it on Amazon. BLACK+DECKER TROS1000D. It has a heat shield for mounting under a cabinet. It has to be taken down when traveling. The mount isn't made for traveling. It would shake off the mount. Don't ask me how I know.

Ally I guess I missed it but did they get your TV fixed? was it a computer or wire harness problem? If the tape hangers don't work out try double sided 3M tape., or even liquid nail, It will never come off.

Or if it's really permanent use a rivet gun. I found a video on using one in RVs and I couldn't be happier.

Nothing too exciting: wash/wax/roof/awning cleaning and installed a screen protector on the door so my daughter doesn't crash through it.

We did use the 3M double-sided tape. As for the truck we got it back on Friday so far so good looks like it was An evaporator temp sensor

Nicely done. Are you using a Cameo Silhouette or Cricut or something like that?

Very nice. My wife has owned a Cricut for a few years, but only did paper scrapbooking with it. She just got a Cameo and has started cutting vinyl, but has only played with it a couple of times. She's done some neat stuff, though.

The graphic design side of things is where the real work is. She's got a nice knack, but is far from a designer (yet).

That cutter looks pretty neat. Much bigger and badder than her little machines.

Finally got a chance to put a permanent fix on the bottom of the camper to fix the coroplast from our blowout:




Built a test bed rail for the bunks as well. If this works well I will get some decent wood and make something a little more permanent:

Today I looked at the underneath to see how difficult it might be to install a Blue Ox TT2450 Trac Bar and also a Sway Bar.
But, yesterday after we got home from our weekend outing, I installed this.....
