Ordered a 30A portable Surge protector since reading about the need for one versus the damage to A/C and other electronics.
Also one of those red Bigfoot jack extenders from Husky for the tongue jack and some other small stuff that I think we need.

Got the RV home from storage getting it ready to head out this afternoon. Going to Lake Whitney state park and staying at the Loafers Bend C.O.E area. Will probably spend four nights there. Slide sure works great after repair.

Washed and treated the roof. Sanitized the fresh water system and washed the truck. Loading things up to go to The Little River Casino Good Sam RV Park in Manistee, Michigan. Planning to ride our bikes on the Betsie River Valley Trail between Frankfort and Beulah. Ice Cream in Beulah and a sunset dinner along Lake Michigan in Frankfort will be our reward for the 22 mile round trip.

Talked about next weekend's mods with my father-in-law. Making a toddler bed out of a bunk, installing a central vac, hanging sewer tubes, installing my chair shelves, fabricating my table hanger and hanging awning lights.

Yep, cheap knock off kid-sized ones.

I made sewer tubes out of vinyl fence post covers, and a drawer out of gutter. There are a few posts here about them. They have been riding in the back of my truck for a year+ to/from campgrounds and I'm finally planning on mounting them under the camper cross-ways. I carry anywhere from 40'-60' of sewer hose and always heard that the connectors were a pita to fit into the bumper. So I made 2 of the tubes.

I see now. I'd like to do that as well but haven't studied the underside enough to know where the frame is located since the underbelly has the plastic covering.

40'-60'! You better be parked on a hill!

Cleaned up the sealant around my shower skylight and shower roof vent, applied the Dicor to some small hairline cracks in the current sealant. After I got everything all cleaned up, they did not look that bad but I treated them anyways. TT is 4 years old and sits in the elements.

Yep, I'm going to be adding another 10' of Rhinoflex hose soon as I've been right at the max with my 20' more than once.

I added a Tornado tank Clenaer to the black Tank, Max air Vent cover to the front vent, Bar across door to make it easier to reach to close, Added new sealer to a few spots on the roof, and a couple of other small items to the inside. I think my next project i want to change out the analog thermostat to a digital. I dont know why they would put a analog in a new 2014 trailer.

Not to worry youroo, I'm not going to be there for FT Turbs to borrow a hose from and we all know from last year his hose is too short.
