Changed out the the stock wiper blades that were totally inadequate. I replaced with a set of Rain-X Latitude wiper blades.

Carefully!......Red car happens to fit perfect between posts, so it became a foot rest....Still have to pull it another inch or so, but think I'll wait for a little sun to help softened up material......I did this by adding two slots in awning cap....

Pulled the Wildcat out front and put it in the driveway to get ready for Virginia Beach. Washed it and waxed the front cap. Ran through everything and de-winterized. Ready to fill it with essentials to survive for a week.

Filled the propane tanks, took the batteries off the battery saver, put the batteries back in... Cleaned up a sharp screw edge, tidied up inside and threw a couple things in.. Getting ready to de-winterize and maybe head out for Easter weekend... Weather permitting...

Wow 2 wasn't enough? I assume you were or you upgraded to 50AMP service?

What did you do to your camper today?

Yeah, I have a 50 amp rig.

The bunkhouse always stays warm during the summer. There are three slide outs and with an outdoor kitchen, the bunkhouse just isn't insulated much. Combine that with being pretty far from the main unit where airflow out of the duct is minimal, it just won't get cool.

I have more than enough now. I expect to pick and choose which ones I run. Probably won't have to run all three at the same time unless it is upper 90s.

Nice to have options now.

Thanks. I tried to make it professional looking. My TT is 37'6" long. The bunkhouse is the problem area. If the two air conditioners were located better it would cool better. However with them favoring the front, the rear bunkhouse loses out.

The heater is located near the bunkhouse so it gets nice warm air. Heating isn't an issue.

I have a 16 Wildwood 31KQBTS. 2 ACs, front and middle, and our bunkhouse is warm too.
I noticed that the 2017 models now have the 2nd AC in the rear.

Sorry, late to the party, but did you see the youtoober one man awning vid? He uses rope, a pulley rigged to the front of the awning fabric track and a tarp clamp grabbing the leading edge of the fabric. He guides it into the track while pulling on the rope. (yes, I spend waaay to much time on the innernet..... (see bobcat log splitter)
