Several things

I didn't like the tie downs in my toy hauler,s o I installed E-track on the floor, and vertical e-track on one wall. Solid tie down now!
Installed the back up camera. the original pre-wired plug is way too short (it has a hard jack at the end, which matches the hard jack on the camera. However too short to fold over, tuck inside the housing and re-mount. so I had to obtain a short wire replacement. Took 3 weeks to finally get one from the fine people at manufacturer, so I bought one from Amazon). Slick.
This week I am mounting a wire shelf above the sliding door (between the garage and living area). Should be easy. good place for light stuff, including the grandkids' sleeping bags.
Installed a MoreRyde step. Nothing to it, and all the worries about mud, etc, no problem. Solid, and easy.
Installed a "TattleTale security system. Wow. Works great. 1st 6 months monitoring is free.
Next up: There doesn't seem to be anything behind the TV mount in the garage. I am removing the power plug and looking inside best I can. I really don't think they put a backer on that spot.
Lower on the list but a bigger project is the solar panels, inverter
and batteries.

Ok, please bear with me...What am I missing? You have a ladder in one of your 5" post covers? What kind?

There are folding ladders that fold down into a 8ft to 4x4" footprint.

Yesterday I conditioned the slide seals, charged the battery and aired Christopher out. Heading to the Delta Thursday.

Well, I started to replace the dome on my bathroom vent that I put my foot through when I was putting the cover on last November. Unfortunately, I bought the wrong kind.

I did vacuum the inside, air up the tires, move the connection center a little (needed some adjustment after I had the crash damage repaired last Fall) and checked the cable on the black tank valve. The cable guide came out if the fitting (probably from me pulling on it too hard)

I should be ready for our first camping trip of the season next weekend.

I didn't do squat to my trailer. It's still at the dealers getting some warranty work on it. I did have them install a Furrion observation camera and some other (minor) stuff too.

Hoping to get it back sometime this week.

got the cover off last Monday. since then been checking everything, cleaning everything, shampooed the carpets, lubing everything, fixed the stairs, replaced a broken hose support under a slideout, etc. last two days have been up and down a ladder waxing the outside. I have help coming this week to repack wheel bearings and check brakes. first trip of the year is in a week and a half.

Was hoping the last 3 times I did this that it was the last. Well once again I spent the day doing failed aluminum weld patch job. The dinette is falling apart and it seems eventually every aluminum weld will fail. It's a 2014 Rockwood 2306 and this is ridiculous. At least we are going 4 days camping tomorrow at Philpot Lake in VA.


I also had to trace down and re-attach a come loose neutral wire from the convertor to the neutral buss bar.
