Busy weekend,DW says always the MH

Changed the Generator Oil at 50 hours since new, Changed MH oil at 3000 miles, bought a 10 foot pvc gutter cut in half and hung them on from inside propane tank cabinet with extra heavy duty zip ties, drilled holes in each end and put a bolt and nut on each end to prevent sewer tubes from sliding out. Each section of gutter holds 10 foot of tube. No more taking up side storage with sewer hoses.

Ordered new Kuerig coffee maker, no more stealing house maker. Also ordered twin a full size gel pads for pull out bed and over cab drop down bed.

Son bought me one of these large stick on maps with all the states on it. Went to Lowes bought a piece of 18x24 plexi glass to mount map and what ever the wife wants to put on plexi glass, I plan on putting the states we stay in on the map. Putting states you drive through would fill the ap faster. Time is only time,,,, Plan on drilling hole in plexiglass and hanging from front windshield while camping, or hang from sheppards pole in front.

Installed dual bike stands on the benches

I had to find a way to take 2 bikes on our trip on the weekend but didn't want to be restricted to having an A-Frame hookup and not able to use the rear bumper.

I chose to install them on the benches insid met FR204rd.

I turned the bench seats over and screwed the 2x4's to the under side so they can be hidden when the area is needed for dinners or sleeping. The front forks are held in place with a fork support. The rear tires are slide between 2x4'z standing on end and screwed in place. The rear end is the held fast with a heavy duty bungee cord so it doesn't bounce out during towing.

How did you affix the PVC to the awning?

Have to build a bumper for the old Cub Cadet to hold the scoop blade we built several years ago.

What did you do to your camper today?

Had to finish the complete job. Actual install took around 30 minutes. Ensuring the position was correct took the longest to clear doors on both sides.

Looks like a good solution to me!

Drive to Bristol VA early yesterday morning to look at a truck that a friend was selling. Made and offer (that was accepted) on it this morning. Hopefully I can go pick it up next weekend when I get back in town.

'01 3500 DRW 4wd Duramax. The current 02 will serve as the spare truck now, but it also means I gotta sell my trusty ole 91 Silverado 4WD.

Clever method to block out the license plate. Who needs Photoshop. You got Photofinger.

Nice truck and best of luck with it!

By the way, What's the actual purpose of hiding a plate number? I've done it myself since it's the thing to do, but everywhere I go, my plate is always in full view for all to see.

I've always thought that was funny. It is out there in public.

Same with a VIN.


It isn't like it is personal information.

Yeah I am sort of playing the do I wanna? I have a 2016 King Ranch F350 Crew SB PSD FX4, but looking at an F350/F450 Dually King Ranch, so we can possibly upgrade to a Toy Hauler in 1-3 years but May just pay this off and keep it and skip the Toy Hauler and look at something with a little more storage.

We spent Friday afternoon throwing out all the food in our fridge/freezer because we lost power at our seasonal site at some point within the past week.

After a few hours of trouble-shooting, I finally discovered that we had a bad breaker on the CG pedestal. We are on 50A service and were only getting power from one leg. Which explained why I was only getting power to half my trailer.

Luckily I had a 30 to 50 dogbone adapter and we were able to live on 30A temporarily. Everything in the trailer still works so no problems there.

The good news is that now I know exactly where my converter is and I've learned how to check/change the breakers in my breaker panel.
