You're over to the side in a "Need an excessive mods intervention" support group.

Not me, I just don't do mods. Don't want to void the warranty.

What did I do today? I hooked on to my brand new 2014 Catalina 313RLS to take it to the dealer for a laundry list of warranty work after our third weekend outing last weekend. That's what I did today. It is setting in the parking lot waiting for my 8 hours to complete then it is a 1:45 min drive to the dealer. [sarcasm] I'm thrilled. [/sarcasm] LOL

No, but my brother does and TOWTA has been known to get a lot of mileage out of the truth.

*Grumble* STILL do not have enough room to install OC's Awning support poles...guess I will be working at the campground this week when we head out for the 4th
Shouldn't take more then an hour to install them poles, and that's with a beer break. Even through I know how high tech they are.........

Did you ever hear of flashlight? I was at a CG once and this guy did that, I kept waiting for him to pull out. All he did was piss off the people in front, back and sides of him..........

Some folks got no class Glenn and don't seem to care about their neighbors.

Had one dumb jerk put a 2 prong flasher in his and let them flash. The flasher mysteriously disappeared as soon as they left.

Well we considered it, BUT, I think the bead blasting you did makes both thingamajigs (pin box and ladder) match up REALLY well with the brushed finish he did on the poles.

You grumped and grumbled about how they looked when you shipped 'em, but DANG OC! They look great!

A couple more things we can utilize when we camp that people will be jealous of. It's nice having such a genius minded feller as a BFF I'm tellin' ya now.

When we were in Pigeon Forge last year a guy near us (and lots weren't close) kept his light on the shore power pole on all night. That light was shining RIGHT in to the slider window by my head that first night. Even with the night shade it was ridiculously bright. Yep, it's nice the park provides a light on each riser for after dark arrival hook up...hook it all up and then TURN IT OFF!

Needless to say that light was NOT on the next night. I'm just sayin'....

Flashers? For what purpose? Just to show he could? A guide for Scotty to beam him up?

Running lights act as reflectors at night when off. Never had a problem finding our RV after the MANY night time walks we take with Fred and we always take a small flashlight anyway.

That's it. I've decided I want to have a neon sign guy make us a 12V powered neon sign to mount on the side of our 5er:

OURS

No more problems finding OUR campsite and RV at night!


Help me choose; yellow, purple, booger green?



Or maybe we could make one of those bucket lights, just make it a 55 gallon instead of a 5 gallon bucket.

You would need 4, one for each side and front and back. Neon Green for sides and Neon Pink for front and back. Make sure they flash too to out shine the running light folks.

You could just do one of these and flip the "NO" part ON when you get back. LOL

OK, I'ma combine both suggestions.

NO VACANCY

On all four sides, and maybe the top too, just in case?

Of course I'll want hover lights underneath in a matching color, right?

Should keep the drunks away too!



OC can I get you to install air shocks this fall so I can make it jump up and down a lil bit? Just a lil bit. Can't have too much stress put on our ultra light frame yanno. That flimsy bumper might fall off.

OMG! I was chewing a bite of bagel when I read THIS! Dang near choked, I did!

In all seriousness 4X4, OC IS the brain trust of RV mods, or any other mechanical thingamajigs, TBH.

I want him to leave that mod'd-out 5er to me in his will!


Check out his "awning hold down poles" for a sample of his genius. We're proud owners of TWO sets of the poles and brackets.

That is absolutely a false statement. I ain't the master of anything but doing nothing and I'm getting pretty good at that.
