After camping over long weekend found changing factory non-lockable door knob to bathroom over to one that locks went to the top of the list. New locking door knob installed today. Also picked up a couple small items for the camper as well and put sealant on a new showerhead holder that I installed the other day and didnt have any sealant at the time.

The first attempt had the panels at about 27"x43" laying the long way.....

The pen had 2 panels on each side and could fit under a 7'x7' canopy.

Now, we have some Shelties that can really JUMP! So, we placed the long side up and made extra panels.....


The canopy still fits overhead and, as you can see, the girls seem to be chillin' watching the kids play at the CG.

The old panels were made out of 3/4" schedule 40 PVC with the 2"x3" plastic mesh. The new panels were the same size, but I had some 1"x1" black mesh on hand. All panels are held together with reusable cable ties. I break the current setup down by sides and store them on the back ladder of the Sunseeker......

using these hangers, which I have mounted on some aluminum square stock and attached to the ladder with u-bolts. I'll get a picture tomorrow if you are interested.

Not RV, but TV...

Do these make my behind look small?

That's why we would never go for a truck as a TV. Always had to have a SUV. DW would have a hissy if I ever let our girls ride in the back of a pickup.

Simple but awesome...installed a fan on the tv swing arm in our bedroom. Now I don't have to set the A/C to 60 to have air blow on me all night. Click image for larger version

The first time I looked at this thread, the pictures didn't show up for me for whatever reason..

I was imagining the dogs in the pen, pen strapped to the ladder, heading down the road. =P

After our first weekend out, I brought it home and gave it a bath. It came filthy from the dealer, so this is the cleanest I have ever seen it! Aside from almost having a donestic with my DH iver the propper procedure for cleaning it (since when did he become an authority in cleaning).
I used ArmorAlls Wash Wax and Protect, but Im not really happy with the way it cleaned. What do you all use to was your TT?

Exterior is washed with diluted Murphy's Oil. Interior is cleaned with, uh, uh, don't have a clue. Not allowed to do any of that.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

You too huh, DW won't let me put anything inside, she controls all that, I only get to manage outside compartments

I use Dawn Dish soap with water for outside, then McGuire's wax and so far I am happy. I use Tar & Bug remover then quickly wipe the residue for all the dead bugs on the front of it.

I use the dryer sheets to get bugs off. Works great and even if it dries the residue washes right off with hose water.

I was using Camco RV wash. Just bought some Costco car wash and wax combo. About 1/4 the price.

OC, I put a set of these on my Wildcat before I left Az. and drove home to Michigan. After 2,300 miles I fell in love with them. They seem to have a stiff sidewall that held the road pretty good with strong side winds.

After a year of gutting and completely remodeling the bedroom, bath, hallway and kitchen/living area we were finally able to take a trip a few weeks ago. We didn't do anything with the bunk room mainly because neither of us cared for it much. We really enjoyed our trip but still missed the massive living area of our old camper (totaled when tree fell on it). The next day I got home from work to find DH and a few buddies hard at work. What was the bedroom wall, top bunks and door was sitting in my driveway. They removed the dividing wall, took out the top bunks, moved electrical light wiring and outlets, rotated the pantry to fit on top of the lower bunk and made the two lower bunks a wrap around couch. It is amazing, open, airy and I love it. In the process of moving the electrical outlets DH changed them out to the ones that have 2 plugs as well as 2 USB ports on each one. There are beautiful hanging baskets near each one to hold tablets, laptops, cell phones, IPod's while charging. The wrap around couch can still easily be used to sleep two guests (grandkids).
