Ordered 50amp wire with male/bare end and NEMA box for outside. Now I will be able to plug up without going under garage door. Installed a bumper hitch with a flag pole holder. Used a 2 1/2" tube and mounted mounting plate for cloths drying rack. Took out heaters and winter clothes. Broke an awning pole. #! $%%#.

Starting the install of OCW's door window he bought at the Mayberry rally. Got the old glass out, the framework out and cleaned of all the factory caulking, new rope caulk installed in outside frame and new window installed in the frame. Coffee break!! Will install the new window and frame in a few minutes. So far everything going great.

OCW decided anyone could install it like the factory.

We're going to open the hole up and make it a picture window. Will cut the old window in half and seal up the holes at the top and bottom with Gorilla tape.

Getting bigger. What was just a 15-20 minute project will now take at least a day provided we don't break anything.

Yes. Since you did the stabilizer at Mayberry CG, need a bigger project to do now!

Lucky find on the 310 and nice upgrade. We plan on upgrading to the 310 also. The 300 has that awful noisy seat that cannot be upgraded.

Did you upgrade the 310 to the wood seat yet? Another nice upgrade I want.

Bob had to take the stab off before leaving, we had to mod it yesterday and re-install. Now it has more clearance for the ds front tire.

Will you please bring yours to Concord so we can use it for a prototype? Charges will be for material only.

Uncovered truck, hooked up and moved the 5er back onto its spot on the concrete, re-marked where the wheel blocks go, un-hitched, moved the truck back over beside the garage on the gravel and covered it up again. Won't be moved until we take Bob's 4 legged lawnmower over to Mardy's in 2 weeks for dessert. Sure wish Bob had taken that brown squirting mower with him. Guess we'll have lamb chops later this year after we get the material for a new blanket and maybe a shirt.
