Ordered two Rev-A-Shelf 5WB1-1222 12 x 22 pull out base cabinet wire basket organizers from PullsDirect.com to install in the huge pantry of our new 2019 Rockwood 2606 ... I swear, you could put bodies in there! Might buy more if we find we love them. We have pull out shelves in our house and they are so convenient. For now we will see how we like them in the bottom caverns of the camper. There's a really tall overhead cabinet to the left of the kitchen sink for tall cereal boxes, etc but I plan on putting heavy can goods on these pantry organizers, maybe some heavy pans.

Nice looking rig! Too bad you had to downgrade to that bow tie thing...

Hope you got home safely - OUCH - Cathy just whacked the back of my head...

Well tell Cathy she has our permission to hit you a couple of more times for that bowtie comment...

But I have to say, 80% of ford trucks built in the past 20 years are still on the road....the rest of them made it to their destination. BOOM!!

80% of the Ford trucks built in the past 20 yrs are still on the road because they died there and are waiting to be towed to be used as "Ditch Fill".

Thanks in advance for the replies


Yes they do but you can prevent it by turning the crank handle slightly past close. That puts a bit of spring tension on the mechanism.

I became a contortionist and was able to replace this backflow preventer.

Added a little "jewelry shelf" for odds and ends and to get the dog leashes off the floor.

Magnetic door stop from Home Depot. Keeps the door from banging around when left open.



DW did some decorating for the baby girl.



4ea 150W solars and a spiffy MPPT controller with Bluetooth......
It'd be prettier if it were installed....

Added a pull bar to the screen door and switched out the standard shower head for an Oxygenics - both very worthwhile and super easy upgrades.

Might not be a bad idea to make the drip pan self draining. Add a "spout" that you can attach a vinyl hose to and then drill a hole so it can drain down and out. Even with an alarm, a small pan could fill and overflow.

I'm working on this for my "stick and brick" home. A drain pan under washing machine and dishwasher, with drains to the outside, just like the pan under my Hot Water Heater. Had a water heater fail once. No warning, no noise, just water all the way across my downstairs floor. Makes one paranoid even though it happened over 30 years ago.

Someone got smart and did the same thing for my refrigerator. An external drain for condensation out of the refer section. No more puddles inside or on the floor in front of the refrig door.

Wife and I have been driving Fords for the last 12 years or more 5 vehicles. Mostly routine maintenance. She gave one to a friend and it is still running and looks good. Almost 190,000 miles. I will definitely buy another.

5 in 12 yrs? Nothing to brag about getting rid of them on an ave of every 2.4 yrs,, but I guess that's pretty good for FoMoCo.

I disagree and saying Chev is better is like saying the world is flat. Truth is Ford is Number 1 for many reasons!

Reworked the spare tire carrier by adding a 2x2x2 box tube to the bottom and angle iron legs, it now sits on top of the bumper which removed much of the torsional stress on the bumper.

I had one of those mounts on my car trailer. Got tired of rewelding it. Welds held,but from the bouncing, it would freak some place else.
