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.
Probably built by the guy just learning to weld. (At least we HOPE he was "learning.")

I cant get at the trailer yet,its still buried in 3' of snow,but the TV got the plow removed for the year,the bed ballast(1500# of bagged coal) removed,a thourogh wash inside,outside and undernieth,and the hitch reinstalled in the rails.Now we have a TV instead of a plow truck! Since I'm only 4 weeks out of open heart surgery as of today,it took a bit longer than usual!

RP-171, removed valences from all four side windows, relocated blind on forward port window so it's not all cockeyed when closed. I'm not planning to reinstall the valences, the're heavy and perform no useful function.

I am pretty sure your doctor said not to lift anything heavier than a milk jug. Mine did. Give it time to heal. And good luck.

We had storm weather this morning...
DW was leaving for work and called back to say "there are limbs blown down by your trailer". After I recovered from the heart attack....I went outside. Got the ladder and did a quick inspection..didn't see any damage. Thank you Jesus.

My DW says the same anytime there is something wrong. Otherwise it is her condo on wheels.

New propane supply outfit

We have plans to camp at 9,200' elevation this June so figured I'd be smart to replace the camper's original 15 year old: regulator, supply hose, and pigtails. Found it all on Amazon pretty cheap. Camco 15" pigtails, Mr. Heater 22" supply hose, and Marshall ExCel MEGR253 Auto Changeover Regulator.

Upon testing (passed leak tests) at stove, noticed much stronger flame strength. Didn't realize how weak the old regulator was!

Also added theft deterrent lock for the tanks (had to drill hole). The tanks are very old too so will trade them in when empty for newer ones.

If your stove is like mine, and most others, the front burner has more BTUs than the back 2. Stronger flame boils water quicker. I think I can actually see this in your photo.
