I've got a set of those!!! I won a gift certificate to the campground store playing Bingo and used that to buy them. That was in 1985 and they have survived 2 pop ups, 6 years of tenting and are now in their 2nd TT. We call them the "hooters" and they come out at just about every camping trip.

Got a lot done today to the trailer.

I lubed both slides
Conditioned the seals on both slides
Conditioned all the window/door seals
Swapped the taillights with LEDs. I did not like how little you could see them during the day with the running lights on. This is much better. Different bulbs did nothing and LED bulbs in the existing fixture only made it worse.
When swapping the taillights I also had to remount and add lights for the license plate.
Wired up additional backup lights.
Sealed up the old taillight holes with silicone.
Wired the TPMS repeater to the battery shutoff finally instead of direct to the battery. One less thing to remeber when storing it.
Removed many stickers that needed to go.
Treated/cleaned all 4 tires and inspected them closely.
Bleached the awning to remove the mildew using the two beer method.
Replaced the self tapping screws on the front steps that were falling out with bolts that wont.

I am now trying to figure out the best way to attach the LED light strips under the trailer as that is my next project but it got too hot in the sun and had to take a break.Attachment 178639Attachment 178644Click image for larger version

We installed an extra sewer hose storage tube. We also cleaned the awning with magic eraser. Now I need to figure out how to clean the top of the awning.

We used a ladder and cleaned what we could reach from the tube end, roll up a bit and clean some more, keep repeating until the awning is fully rolled up and all clean.

Didn't do anything today but last weekend we went to Lake Guntersville with the grandkids for a weekend of camping and fishing- Really wish I could have stayed the week.

I took mine to Angel Fire, New Mexico, set it up, and I am having a beer in all of your honor at this moment.

It's 75 degrees.

I added folding legs to my dining table. The pedestal legs were too tall and limited the use of the table. I got the legs on Amazon. http://www.forestriverforums.com/for...1&d=1531095323

Pulled all the marker lights and tail lights and resealed them. Only one would have caused a problem in the future. Also replaced a broken lens on a marker light that happened on the last trip. Jay

Washed and waxed it last weekend. Began packing it for the Mayberry Rally today. Also added the FROG license plate and a Martin Truex Jr Championship license plate to the back on the bike rack today.

Russ, there was a post 2 or 3 weeks ago from one of our members that did just the opposite. Too bad you two weren't able to just swap tables.......

Installed a TT-30R outlet outside my garage so I can run everything for maintenance and services.

Tried to get my Dish Receiver to work with an old King Flex cube. they didn't like each other. Off to Camping World to get a Tailgater, got there 10 minutes before they closed. Back home and all set to go camping this weekend. Parents are getting the old King Flex, theirs is not working.

Finally after like 6 months of having them... Got OC's awning pole brackets mounted and completed with PVC poles. Ran out of day to paint them, that will be for the weekend.
