In-laws own a garage door company. I don't know what it actually is, but they have a dry spray lube for garage door tracks I'd use on my slide gear tracks, etc...

Put grease in my bearing buddy trailer wheel bearings. When I took he first one apart to inspect was surprised to see it had a good amount of grease from the factory.

However, in this case, I think the Beaver Scout motto is more appropriate:

Wife can't have it there, has to clamber over the wardrobe shelf to get in the bed, and we use the hamper door over on my side.
Guess I'm an everything in its place kinda guy.

Not me, but I love when my father-in-law shows up for an afternoon of projects:
- he sat on the couch for the first time and saw the door was stuck at 90-degrees due to the strut. He called it stupid and decided that was the first thing he’s fixing. So, we replaced the strut with a magnetic door catch.
- next, as I mentioned somewhere.. my wife removed one coat/key rack and he hung the new one for her.
- he replaced the magnetic door catch in my bedroom with a smaller one mounted to the slide vs the wall so it actually does it’s job (holding the door during travel to the slide out).
- he continued working on modifying the beds so they can be a pair of twin beds that run with the camper. We are only about 1 workday away from being ready for mattresses up there!

I think that’s it. I was working all afternoon unexpectedly and couldn’t help.

I Just Had To!!

My two 12v deep discharge AGMs were stolen from the battery boxes on the hitch on my Shamrock 23ss..

Those darned thieves. They took less than my insurance deductible!

My response was to replace the batteries with two 6 volt 225Ahr AGMs in a
Dee Zee #M207 locking box that is 3 ft long by about 12x12 square. I bolted it down to the original battery support framework that was factory welded to the frame rails.. That box is long enough for my two new batteries, didn't hide my front LED hitch-up light, and left me the room for the 3.5KW inverter I have on order now...That box could easily take four of those golf cart batteries without the inverter should I feeo the need...

Home Depot had a rubber mat that I cut up in pieces to fit for shock protection of the batteries and to keep them securely located.

I may even install the inverter output into an outlet on the end of the Dee Zee box to show folks how my TT plugs into itself for the microwave to work...LOL!

It was a fun project, despite having to do it only because of some lowlife scumbag thieves.

I understand now why you need the shelf, and if i would have thought about it longer i would have remembered this forum is full of one off custom things to help out

I forgot- he also trimmed the bottom of the pin box cover/shroud so it won’t drag against the rails of my roll top bed cover.

And be measured the angle of the pinbox so he can make me another hitch recover for a bike rack.

Hey, thank you for taking the time to say so. I'm sure you meant no offense, and I replied after 7 hours into what should have been 3 hours of packing. And we all know how that gets!

I can not remember who posted the leaving plugged to AC for extended period of time could do more harm to batteries than good. Since some converters do not have float mode. I got a chance to check mine with the operator manual. I am good wit WFCO 8955
