What a shame to have had to put up with that.

It's a good reminder to those of us who have been fortunate enough to have always been able to store our rigs on our own property and always right within sight.

Yeah I envy you guys with space. I married in to the space I'm in, or lack thereof. Will be a few years before we are able to get a house and some land that would solve the storage issue.

Well now you are going to have a long drive into town to get your meth. That seems like a lot of work.

Thank you.
All I can say so far I'm not seeing any yellowing and it is remaining shiny. There's no mention on the bottles of any UV protectant but remember it's sold and marketed as an indoor floor product.
Only time will tell.

If it was marketed and sold as an RV product it would cost 3 times as much!

You know it! There are other products out there that appear very similar geared toward automotive use and the pricing supports your (our) theory. It makes me wonder if they just repackage.

Look up an MSDS on it VS: whatever you are comparing to. Sometimes they will list the original manufacturer and their numbers. Done it before.

Try to watch a couple YouTube videos on it and do a test patch first. Post back how you make out.

Did nothing to the camper, but did put a Piranha 7-1/4" saw blade on my gas powered edger and ground 3 stumps by the camper down below ground level so we don't have to drive around them or look out for them anymore.

I really like this mod !

Thanks,

The screws only go into the plywood. There is no reinforcement of the cabinet (but maybe I should do that )

Now that's a mod that I would like!

Thanks OC, you've confirmed a long time thought of doing the same.
I'm stopping by the hardware store tonight to get the blade for my stump grinder/edger mod.
Brilliant!

Made a backing plate from ⅛ inch stainless. Since it's almost impossible to match the white paint on the trailer I painted it black. Seems to fit right in with all the other black doors and panels.



After finishing that there was still daylight left and it was still raining so I installed the recently delivered LED stop/turn/running light strips. The lower lights, even though they are LED, just didn't seem to stand out much and I really prefer more visibility for the aft end of the trailer.



How did you install these? Did you have to drill holes and where did you run the wires?

I drilled ⅜ inch holes to run the wire through. First hole outside the frame at the center point of lens location and the second one on the inside of the frame where it terminates at the bottom. Using the weighted sewing thread/vacuum cleaner trick I fished the wire through the two holes (about 30 inches or so) then soldered them into the existing light wiring.

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.

Dumped and rinsed the black water tank. I made a wand out of 1/2 in pipe and an elbow with a reducer for a nozzle. I certainly works good with our 60 to 70# of water pressure. I can get it to run clear water watching the clear plastic extension on the tank valve. Haven't got the built in sprayer to do it's job, let the dealer deal with that.

Installed the bracket for the Oxygenics Shower Head finally. I got it and put it on the faucet but didn't bother to put up the bracket to hold it. The original bracket held it but looked like any day it would drop it on my wife's foot, then I'd be in big trouble.

What did you do to your camper today?

Absolutely nothing but enjoyed it

Not a dang thing...

I drove over to the storage lot to finish waxing it, place was locked up tight as a drum due to the holiday... Oh well, gives my shoulders a chance to recuperate.
