If I chocked him with the new rig, he'd be smashed. Instantly.

Finally got around to installing our Progressive Industries hardwired Electrical Management System in our 2017 Windjammer. Easy install, found plenty of room under the fridge, behind the breaker box. The display mounted right next to the breaker box above the LP alarm.

Added shelves in the middle of my cabinets. FR has huge cabinets but we donít need 40Ē high cabinets everywhere and could use more storage as most people could Iím sure. Click image for larger version

Removed built in water filter housing.

After reading several posts here on the FR Forums about the factory water filter breaking and leaking inside the trailer, I decided to remove it. Plus, the space will give me room to install my RV Vacuum system. I put hose fittings on the filter housing, and will use it outside where it is more convenient and where a leak won't be a big problem. I also took of the hinge that was used to lock the cabinet door closed and installed a door latch. It will be easy to change the vacuum bags once I get the system installed.

Don't know why the pics are rotated...

Got the camper from storage yesterday and took it to a campsite. Haven't parked in the dark in quite a while.

Otherwise, some unpacking and light cleaning.

Have been mentally starting a "honey do" list, though.

After some extensive searching and the help of google and this forum, I was able to track down a number for Patrick Industries. The remote for our IRV31 had a dead battery when we picked up the TT, and when replacing the battery the remote works but it kills the battery within a day. Of course the dealer said they would check into what Forest River would want to do with the warranty but told me I might have to bring the trailer in to take the whole radio out and send it back to the factory for service. That was 6 weeks ago and they haven't called back yet. The gentleman who answered the phone at Patrick Industries today was very helpful and offered to send out a replacement remote free of charge. Mission accomplished.

A little of both! She needs to make a curtain for the dinette window. Curtains were "on hold" while we were considering a new rig.

For me, I want to replace the scissor jack that I destroyed back in August and finally move them forward towards the axles. I might even buy 2 sets and throw a pair up in front of the axles, but we'll see.

I need to adjust my B&W hitch head. At rest, it tilts back too far and makes it hard to tell when the camper is high enough to easily unhitch.

Nothing major right now. Just little stuff.

Thanks for the concern. It's all good here- we flew from TX to PA for my sister's wedding. Knowing that everyone would want to try and see us while we were there, we stayed back for 3 (long, looong, loooooooooooooong) weeks!
