We went up north and spent a few days in the windjammer. Aimed the satellite dish and did some other stuff to get it ready for me to live in during my refinery job. Which starts Monday.

Today I'm going to drain the sunset trail and blow air through the lines and put antifreeze in the traps and toilet.

Does the curtain rod covers any damage/holes from the box valances? Trying to picture what I would be dealing with if I did this. I was thinking of adding sheer curtains inside the box valances but I like your idea too.

Our bathroom door would not open with slide closed. It has been a real pain to use the bathroom while traveling so I finally fixed it. Added this door holder like used on the outside doors. This one locks the arm down when not in use and also locks into the bracket on door so it cannot come undone when clipped in place. So now we can leave the door open. I have towed it about 100 miles so far and it is working well.

Did some upgrades to my TV.

Added dual input rear view mirror with digital video display and bluetooth.

Added a Bluetooth OBDII scanner so I can monitor my 6.0.

Put some switches on my dash. Upper left is a SPDT rocker switch that allows me to choose which to display on my rear view mirror. My backup camera on my TV or rear camera on the camper.

Lower left is the on/off rocker switch that cuts power to my OBDII device so it will not be drawing power when parked for a long time.

Red button... Self destruct of course!


Naw, just hooked up a momentary switch to my garage door opener. Since the opener used a 12v battery, I wired it to an ignition power source and soldered wires from the switch across the momentary on the circuit board of the remote. I put in the overhead and out of view.

I didn't need a self destruct button on my 6.0, it did it all by itself. 😭
Like the blue tooth gauges, what are you using.
