Vented the range hood

I added an outside vent to the range hood. Super easy and cheap. Less than $30 total. It also let me move the hood back about 4 inches so I can see the stove top. I was worried but careful measure and cut through side wall was not hard at all.

Finally finished all the messing around with 12 volt system. Upgraded wire from battery to converter to #4. New bus bars in a forward storage compartment almost on top of the batteries. Inverter mounted in same compartment with 120vac now running to new outlet behind TV. Remote control to turn inverter on and off. All wiring neatly secured with zip ties or run in non metallic raceway.

When done today I switched off the converter, plugged TV into new outlet, then watched TV for a while.

Works great. Next project? A couple weeks boondocking.

Got the TT state inspected for the first time. Bought another ball & ball mount for moving the TT around not using the WDH. Needed one with no drop/level and my other mounts would not match the WDH ball height, even with fiddling around ;( Plus my other ones are 3.5K, new one is 6K rated.
I pulled another 27# of stuff out of TV (51# total pulled out), helping overall tow & axle weights. Crawled under and verified TT axle is clearly marked 3500#.
I WAS going to replace the single 20# propane tank with a 30# one and carry the 20# as a spare and I was looking at adding an electric tongue jack, but right now my TT considerations are all affected by "How much weight will it add to the overloaded axle that I'm trying to avoid?". On the last camp, I was 180# overweight on the TT axle and close on the drive axle. If I could only leave my wife & dog home, then I'd be in spec

I'm only pulling with a 250... Slide toppers and Max air would put me overweight
I cought a tree with the rain gutter . I had to cross a very narrow bridge followed by a very tight left turn which was also banked to the left leaving the trailer over... I couldn't back out, so had to go forward... Flattened the rain gutter and put some tears in the roof... Now that I'm home I'm waiting for the insurance adjuster to come and look at it

We use a five gallon bucket to cover ours when parked. Started after one of our tongue jacks got a few gallons of water in it one weekend.

Not sure of her weight.... You could ask dw to lose weight, but that WILL be risky.

Boomer, what do they check for at your state inspection?

You have to have it electrically connected to your tow vehicle to check lights and that the brakes activate/work. They check your brake pads for wear or damage and conditions of your drums. Condition and treadwear of the tires. TT Registration and insurance on the TV.

Today I cut our "medicine chest" hanging pocket organizer in half. It keeps falling down in the heat using 3M Command hooks. Stored actual medicine type items in a small tote and just hanging toiletries now. If the 3M keep falling off, I'll have to use some drywall fasteners. Yesterday I cut several 4x4 blocks for the stabilizers, same sizes.

Must have been a BIG tongue jack to hold a few gallons of water.

I quit using command hooks. Ordered over the door organizer from Amazon. Works great and holds mountain of crap
