Finally found and fixed a leak on the slide. Water was sneaking in through a very small crack between the slide trim and slide siding. The water somehow made its way in between the bottom of the slide out floor and the exterior slide floor liner. I cleaned and caulked the tiny gap, then opened up the slide floor liner in a few spots to dry out and inspect. Some damage, but nothing major to note. Ended up duct taping the small holes I made in the liner. Got a good shower going on tonight. Hopefully the inside of the camper will be dry in the morning!

This is Camper related...

On my way home from work today we started to pass a truck with his camper ( I was in the passenger seat ) and watched the tire blow out. I started to get his attention to let him know, but he was already pulling over. I never seen a tire blow going down the road before.

To this bc I could not stand the discolored Yellowish vent anymore, tried to replace it with a Black one but this particular vent doesn't come in black and others don't fit the opening.

I would think they would make the white plastic parts better so they don't Yellow after 1-2 years, but at the cost of $9.00 each year, cheap enough for me to do

Xdingy yellow

Mine were in good shape, but yellowed badly. So, I taped mine off, and painted them with a good quality automotive paint for fiberglass and plastics! Been over a year so far. Did my speakers ( took the speakers out first- which prompted me to upgrade them too...)

Not a big change but removed the Westlake spare tire and installed a new Maxxis 8008. Now 5 new Maxxis.

When I pulled old one off it was brittle and cracked so just decided to replace it this time and was able to clear the factory caulking mess all around it.

I think by now I've painted everything plastic on the exterior with Krylon Fusion Polar White. It keeps it looking new (er).

Finally took the tv's out to the motor home. Go the main one installed and hooked up. The bedroom is a PITA and needs the bedroom slide extended. I'll do that one tomorrow.

In the midst of adding the 3rd AC, I made some upgrades to the satellite connection. Previously, I used my DirecTV splitter on the "outside" of the docking station. I had short jumpers made to connect it to each satellite feed on the panel.

Now, I have a new connection in the basement to replace the cable that I ran along the bottom of the wall. I also disconnected all of the satellite inputs and connected them to the splitter "behind the wall". Now all I need to do is connect the input to the satellite main input and it does the splits behind the scenes....
