Guy showed up this morning to work on my drive. Flattened it out some taking out the center hump and lessening the vertical angle in there and putting down gravel. Last gravel put in was in 2009. So a little more ground clearance for the hangdowns on the TT.
I am sure you have answered this many times.... What does the SWMBO mean?

I know OC's TOWTA stands for

Yes, She Who Must Be Obeyed.
It's how Rumple (played by the late Leo McKern) in the BBC series (played on PBS in the states) "Rumple of the Bailey" referred to his wife when speaking to others when not around SWMBO. A dark comedic lawyer show. Rumple was a Barrister, not a Solicitor.
If you don't know who Leo McKern was, he also played the evil Hindu priest in the Beatles movie HELP.

Thanks for the heads up. We're waiting for our Zinus 8" mattress to come in today. Already removed the old mattress (used 2 nights), in prep for the new one.

Castle Rock tires off - Goodyear Endurance on. Just in time for a trip starting tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing how much difference there is towing.

We towed 400 miles this week with the new Endurance tires. Noticeably smoother and gained half an mpg.

Prior to today.

Installed LED puck lights under the shelves in the pantry cabinet. It was dark in there and hard to see what was what.

Couple of to do's over the next couple weeks:
Have the Oxygenics shower head ordered, if CW will ever ship.
Install fishing rod racks on the upper aluminum frames inside the front pass through storage so we can carry rods out of the way.
Either remove completely or may replumb the on board water filter to the suction side of the water pump. Allows filtering the water from the fresh water tank and keeps pressure off the filter housing. Using an external filter for city water.
Want to replace the blanks in the cabinet over the dinette with matching doors to get better access.


Wow a busy beaver they say

Stinky Slinky trick / tip if camper is to low just leave tall part off to the side and not use. Also ankle weights to hold ground side connection

I changed the battery in the smoke detector before it wakes us up in the middle of the night. I also ordered the hoses and connectors to add a propane port for my gas grille.

I never liked the rocking chairs in the camper so I found 2 of these on a clearance at Office Depot. 2 office chairs that are designed for big and tall. 266$ for both.Click image for larger version

I tapped the screw holes and attached the rain cover to my Progressive EMS 50.

I tweaked my back on the last morning of camping getting out of bed. My wife, who has never towed a trailer in her life, had to tow it home. She did great and it's good to know she can do it if needed again. I did have to back in into the storage slip however. Now on to letting my back settle down.

The original cracked. So I replaced it with one that's tinted dark. Much better quality and less heat.

That is a good thought, i am looking for an alternative to our Jack Knife Sofa that is side ways to entertainment center. The other current option is sitting at U-shape dinning table

Pretty cool, I have the other manufacture and here is my idea to keep the walk by casual thiefís at bay. Electronics cable lock down kit.

I wanted to take the wheels off of them but there is a metal bracket with small screws in it that I do not want to damage the floors. I may eventually come up with something to cover the screws and remove the wheels. But for now these are a 100 times more comfortable!
