Itís the forum. Iíve uploaded pictures that were taken vertically/in portrait and itís turned them. Others are fine.

Same with sideways/horizontal pictures- it flips and rotate them.

Iíve uploaded those same photos on other websites and they display right. Itís something with this forum and itís picture orientation processing.

Removed XM remote radio that we don't use and it's outdated.

Big hole left behind and a lot of heat trapped there. More on that later.

Cut a new panel and inserted it in the opening.

I had to alleviate the heat I mentioned earlier because that is the space the back of my stereo/radio/DVD player occupies. Luckily for me the A/C duct passes right over this spot. I cut a 3/4 hole right into the ceiling, screwed in a 3/4 threaded male and added a 90 elbow to direct some cold air towards the back of my radio.

Just enough cool air comes out to temper the heat.

Moved the Progressive Industries display panel from down near the floor to a more accommodating spot.

I am thinking the same thing. Not sure how to go about it tho. Ie, tint on the skylight clear bubble? Stained glass contact paper-film on the inside lens in the shower?

Mounted my BillsBumperQ swing arm and my new Weber 2200. Weber is so much better than the little grill that came on it.

Instead of trying to tint acrylic, my son just ordered a new dark tinted skylight for about $35. Took him about an hour to replace it.

Last week I added heat into the bathroom by piping off the heater and running a 3 foots section of flex ducting to a new hole and outlet under the bathroom sink cabinet.
We have had nothing but frost to 3 degrees at night where we are since April pretty much so a warm bathroom for DW makes everyone happy.


I also drilled a couple of holes in the entertainment center location on the Sportster so I don't have 20 feet of cable laying underneath the TV when watching it. Inserted a couple of the desk cable routing adaptors.


Next weekend - hook up 2 new plugs so DW can actually do her sewing at the table without an extension cord being run from the bathroom plug.

Please take pictures as you do this. I have about 4 outlets I want to add and am procrastinating on it.

Today we just camped with the dogs, though I have thought of several small projects for the future.

Discovered why it was more of a PITA to lift the bed for the underneath storage access than it should have been.
First, handle was off center by 4-5" to the right.
OK, so I moved it center. Better but still a pain and twisted while lifting.
THEN I realize it's the off centered gas support rods! Rod on right at the far edge of the bed near the wall. Rod on the left is off set from not only the headboard ledge, but the area blocked off for the water pump and hot water heater. So I lifted to find the balance with the prop rods and bed weight. THEN I moved the lift handle to that position. So I have a third set of holes showing that will be hid by the bedsheets when the bed is made.

Also added a Camco door Awning roller ball to protect from rubbing.

Opened the trailer up for some ďfreshĒ air after being closed up during the thunderstorms and replaced one of the pocket door guides.

The gray water blade valve at the drain opening was getting really hard to open and close and lubing with recommended silicone lubricant wasn’t helping. $14 to Amazon, four bolts and less than 10 minutes to replace the valve. All is good now.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

Just pulled the Vengeance out of the barn to get her ready for a weekend trip. Also threw on a set of six Snap Pads.

Well over last few days got the oxygenics shower head installed. Haven't tried it yet to see how much of a difference it makes. Picked up a few things to make life a little more convenient; sewer hose supports, leveling ramps, stuff like that.
Finally got around to installing the fishing rod racks in the forward pass thru. Making a trip in a couple of weeks to do some fishing and this will help keep the rods up out of the way. Also installed two puck type led lights in there to make it easier to see.

Hadn't even thought about fishing rod racks, mine are always in the way of the folding chairs and all the other "stuff" I have in the front storage bay. A very good idea, I may have to investigate on ours.

What did you do to your camper today?

Been doing stuff ever since we picked it up May 16th but haven't had a chance to post. Naturally installed an in line EMS. Just posted about our first trip and found we definitely need the Oxygenics shower head so installed that too.

Put non-slip shelf liner everywhere I didn't want things to slide around. Even under the couch.

First trip we also realized we were going in and out a lot for paper towels so added a holder to the outside table.

Looked all over for a curved shower rod with no luck so had to modify. Cut about a foot off both the inside and outside poles, sanded lightly and slid into and installed. Worked great and got a couple more inches in the shower. (Couple more inches of ROOM in the shower).
