I've had a busy week. New Michelin LTs for tv measured and cut reflextics for tent ends, fixed busted bottom wardrobe door and added a elastic cargo carrier to front of dinette to put our shoes and sandals. Loaded camper and truck bed readying for our trip to Brass Ring Rally.


Witch Doctor I hear there is open spot bring new MH. Could be nice break-in trip......twisting your arm hard.

Wish we could, would like to party with you again. We are still trying to stuff a 100# of junk from 7 years in a 5th wheel, with all that room into 46 cubic feet on the M/H. The problem is that it's not the 46 but that it is all vertical by maybe 10" deep. I have atleast 70% of stuff under the car port. It's good stuff like a awning motor new but white, if I rent a u haul to carry it all to Goshen members will find about everything including 2 brand new generators 2000 watt. Pm me what you need and I will check, special pricing my Friend...enjoy yourself, and don't forget we need to do some fishing...

Thanks, yes fishing in order somewhere down the road. Don't need anything from under the carport. The bar could be different story.

My father in law built a triangular step for the rear of our garage. This gives us a flat surface for our couch and a dresser vs using LynxLevelers like I was using before.

I meant to post last week, but we were driving and I noticed the cover for the inside of the awning arm had slid down and was flapping in the wind. We got off on the first exit and it fell when we got slow enough at a light. My wife jumped out and grabbed it.

We also bought wood to turn the beds in the garage with the camper. We will put 2 twin beds up there with some kind of shelf as a divider. We cut the plywood while my FIL had his table saw out. But we have more work to do on that. Fortunately, we are parked in their yard for some undetermined amount of time.

It was a busy weekend for us. Did the fence post sewer hose holder mod, mounted a small tv in the bedroom, mounted holders for mop and broom, put up new curtains, educated myself on the 2506s' entertainment cabling, checked out the tailgater we just bought, and packed up for our first-ever camping trip in a few days!

Thanks to this site and the folks on it, for making this process much much easier.

The bottle says CLR not CRC. They advertise all the time up here. CLR is an acronym for Calcium Lime Rust.

Spent most of my weekend washing, waxing the camper and cleaning the slide toppers. While cleaning the front end I found a couple of cracks in the caulking and had to go to my local RV store to get some stuff to fix that and purchased another cyclone sewer vent to replace the one that had been broken over the winter. Ran out of steam and daylight for the mail awning.... maybe tonight after work and make a very detailed inspection of all the caulk seams.

Removed, cut down, and reinstalled the panel under the sink.
I really have to learn to take before pics
I cut off about 4" of panel and pushed it in 1-1&1/2" to gain more under counterspace. Notice the wasted 3" or so of headroom in the undersink cupboard with extra bottom panel. I gained the open area 4" behind the wheel-well.
I could have gained about 40% area in front of the sink drain IF the wiring (looks like brakes and running lights based on direction and colors) and especially the gas pipe had been routed more directly.
Might consider a deeper sink swap in the future. Lord knows there is the wasted space under there for it!

The aftermarket backup camera monitor had 2 inputs that I used....input 1 for the reverse camera, input 2 for the trailer observation camera. I wired everything to a switch so when I am not pulling the trailer the reverse camera works...when I am pulling the trailer the trailer observation camera works. It's all assembled in a waterproof box.

(note: don't know why the picture is sideways...just envision it rotated and mounted...which it will be on Monday)
attached camera box to trailer...

Going to dry camp for the first time. So thought it would be a good idea if I sanitized the fresh water tank( that I haven't ever used).Used the kit from Camping World. wash, flush, sanitize and empty. Must have really needed it, because the procedure set off the propane alarm

Added two more screws per side to the support lips that hold the table when converted to a bed. Another poster had his collapse on him with only two screws originally per side.

Measured making plans for moving the dining table against the wall. It currently has a 2&5/8" gap. Will move one table flange outward and one floor flange the other way. Only have to measure for the first, then move it. Unscrew the floor flange for the other post and slide it accross the floor with post in place, instead of measuring again. If it rubs while in transit. I'll add some self stick foam to the table edge. It just bothers me that the table rotates a few degrees with the dual mounts as is, with that wall gap.
