Thank goodness they had that sticker so you know where to drill. Couldn't imagine hitting the internal frame.

Did a few things today. Installed the electric fireplace. Moved the subwoofer to the upper cabinet, routed the board for the wires that came out of the lower cabinet and put them on both sides of the tv mount boards. Tightened the wall where it was gapped at the door to the bedroom

The curved ceiling messes with your mind. Good job. I like the TV strengthening idea.

Not so much to wat I did to my camper but what I did for my camper. Built a cover out of 1-5/8 fence top rail, canopy parts and a heavy duty tarp. Cost less than the metal ones and can be disassembled and moved. Had to do it this way because I'm over the property line and into the servitude. This is allowed though.

Boy am I glad mine fits in the tractor shop, truck and all and it's heated to. I winterized the camper last week and the remembered I didn't have to...duh.

Not like I don't have plenty of pink stuff. I have Pex in floor heat in the slab in the shop and I bought 8 5 gallon pails of the stuff and had a full five left over. I'm using it though. My ag sprayer sits in an unheated barn so it gets pink stuff and do does my ATV sprayer. The sprayer comes off the quad in the winter.

How did you know what size lock to get? I see there are a couple different length of lock?

Took my 'new to us' 2014 Columbus 340RK home on Saturday and set it up in a campground for the next couple of months while working in my current location. So far we have determined we have an excellent dealer and we did a really good PDI. Not many things were found wrong, but the dealer fixed everything well. Installed a queen sleep number bed that we had in storage and spent 2 nights so far and very happy with our 5'r.

I may do the same next spring - have a free storage spot for the winter... Was wondering, how far apart did you put the "rafter" poles? Also, if using a tarp as the roof, Do you think there is any benefit to add rope between the "rafter" poles? Additionally, do you think it would be worth putting a rope above the tarp to keep it from billowing in the wind?

Winterized

Sadly, she is winterized now, although we will still use it all winter long. So we will be carrying water, using disposable plated, bowls... and using the shower house/rest room, we will still be camping!
