High winds last night.

Had to install my awning tie-down strap.

At least you couldn't tell the rockin' from the rockin' of the wind! LOL

Nothing to camper, was going to start Mardy's 02 Deville yesterday after mowing his yard and even with a battery tender on it, it wouldn't start. Hooked a charger to it and tried it about an hour ago, no go, had to pull the rear seat and remove the battery. Getting a new one tomorrow afternoon. This one I put in Apr 2008, so I guess we got our moneys worth. $168.95 for a new Interstate.

It's a special made one with dual vents and has a vent tube assy that goes thru the floor under the seat. Quite an elaborate set up.

I like the sky lite. That would be great in our shower sky lite. What did you use?
Thanks!

We traded her in for an 'SOB' (Some Other Brand) - bittersweet and exciting!

I ordered the vinyl from Amazon.com. It came with very clear instructions and a squeegee.
I am looking at perhaps doing a window tint on the rest of the windows.
I flipped between Wal-Mart and Home Depot and finally settling on this one from Amazon.

Sealed the gap between the a/c return and the cold air output. Also placed foam plugs at each end of the a/c duct system. The ducts went on forever past the end vents. Finally,I installed closable a/c vents.

While he might have made it I've seen them available on the internet. Comes in plastic or metal. Can't remember where but google the right words and it will show up.

That adjustable round vent, I was taught to call them registers, is available at multiple RV supply places. On the A/C unit notice the white color insulation material. Mine was somewhat wadded up from the factory and wasn't sealing as it should.The self stick stuff on them is hard to remove so mine literally tore to pieces removing it. I cannot find a source for that insulating piece. The local RV sales/repair center says they've never had to buy any.

Today I removed the Dometic 300 toilet and replaced it with a Dometic 310 Low Profile. Replacement was straight forward only snag was the water fitting which had to be cut down and reattached. this toilet has a nice swirl action when it flushes.

Registers! I knew there was a fancy name for them. Regarding the white insulation material...I think a piece of reflectix would work perfect as a replacement. It is easy to trim to fit, has insulating properties, and can be taped in place using foil tape.

Those round adjustable vents are called diffusers.
