I always wonder why bother? I certainly don't know what to do with someone's plate info. What could even be done? Besides, it's visible everywhere you go...

Sewer hose secured

Today I installed hitch pins to hold the bumper caps on and keep the sewer hose from unexpectedly departing. I used 1/4-inch hitch pins, drilling through the top of the bumper and through the cap.

I've always wondered too. From the day we're born to the day we die, information on us is gathered and stored by numerous entities. Government knows everything about where we live, work, make, have in the bank, etc so why try to be secretive. Any company we ever did business with has us in their database and sends us mail or calls us on the phone.

The moment we leave our house, privacy goes out the window.


Interesting to note, the term "privacy" does not occur anywhere in the Constitution. Privacy has been created by court rulings based primarily on the 9th Amendment and then only in specific, usually personal, situations.

In my case I have been fingerprinted countless times for the Military, Security Clearances, Firearm licenses, and just about every other purpose other than due to criminal charges. Not much about me is "secret" so I don't bother to cover license plates, house address numbers, or such when taking pictures.

Own a house, own a car/truck, get married, get divorced, all part of public record.

And then there is the internet. For less than $10 there are companies that will search every public record database on an individual and give you a complete report. Welcome to the modern world where more than you think is "public".

Like they say, don't pick your nose of scratch your private places in public because it will probably show up on a camera recording somewhere.

Yes, the reflectix is formed to the inside of the top part of the skylight. It's been like that few 4ish years now and I have not noticed any deformities in the skylight from the roof.

I think I read this trick in Trailer Life. For $0.88 at Wally World I think it is going to keep the paper towels from un rolling with the breeze.

Plastic headband

I could have used that trick with my paper towel hanger on my outdoor kitchen door. They would always unravel.

But, I found I could mostly stop it if I took a sheet or two and folded/mashed it up between the roll and the door.

Ordered my SmartPlug to try something different for the power cord. I saw a buddies at the ABQ Balloon Fiesta in October and it was pretty snazzy.

Mine tends to stay open all day due to mini fridge and where I cook breakfast with electric skillet.

The drawer up top has allot of goodies in it too, like small tools, rubber gloves, etc

That's a smart idea. I don't have an outside kitchen, but we buy Viva brand paper towels for the inside towel holder. The Viva brand is really soft and kind of clings to itself on the roll so it doesn't unroll while traveling.

I put up another set of LED mini lites in our Mini Lite! We find the overhead lights too harsh, but these are warm white and cast a nice glow. They also pull only 0.6 amps per string.
