That's a great idea, may have to take this from you!

you are welcome to it. It was actually my wife's idea. She comes up with ideas and then I figure out how to make them work.

Simple and low cost fix. Fill them part way with expanding foam so customers can't put in as much water.

Looks like you could use something from https://www.organizedobie.com/home. They have all different shapes and sizes of netting. That way you could see what's behind the plywood and probably have easier access.

DW wanted a portable waste tank, so rather than just throw it int eh bed of the truck I got a Bicycle/camp Chair rack that hung on the roof ladder.

A couple of bungees later we are all set, out of the way but easy to get at.

Don't know why pics are sideways.

Personally, I wouldn't put that much weight on the ladder. If you can't carry it in the truck bed, you could look at something like this:

Perhaps tie it into the ladder using a horizontal bar bungeed to the top of the tote and secured to the ladder. The bumper will have no problem supporting a sewer tote directly on top of it. I saw one setup that used a lightweight hand truck.

Lighting in the walk-in closet

Well, I answered the call..."Can we somehow get more lighting in the walk-in closet?"....those popular LED strips have found their way to the closet....when we're on the road those shelves are filled with shoes and they're behind the hanging clothes...the DW could not see which pair she was getting out to wear...problem, I think , is solved.....2018 Columbus 383FB

FOR the camper:
I ordered & just got in direct from China via eBay, a WIFI Extender. It can be used a variety of ways but I'm using using it as a simple receiver repeater for my home wifi router. I placed it in the window of the room nearest to where my TT is parked. It's dual band, the 5Meg is a bit weak but I get 2/3 bars on my iPhone & iPad in the TT. So when the grandkids visit and "camp" in the trailer, they can be entertained on their iPads or using Netflix on the television. $20!

Since we can’t do the fence post mod b4 our next trip (2 week delivery time from Lowe’s) and since there’s rust inside the bumper of our 1 yr old TT, we installed a black Valterra sewer hose carrier under the bumper. Eventually, the Valterra will be used for fishing poles when we can do the fence post for the sewer stuff.

Ordered a 6x15' sun shade screen in tan for the TT Awning. It will serve double duty on our back porch as the evening summer sun shines straight into our eyes under the porch roof. My awning is only 10' but I'll wrap the excess around the sides a little.

Pulled the residential Whirlpool fridge out of the cubby hole that it's in and removed the rubber nipple from the freezer drain. It would freeze up and ice up the bottom of the freezer and leak on the floor. Easy fix but tough to get to.

Easy to get power from the outlet that the TV is plugged into. I pulled out the radio/DVD player. Pulled out the TV outlet ran house 14 gauge with ground to the new outlets. There is a lot of wires behind the TV and fireplace! That is where the master control box for the touch pad is located also, it is down lower attached to the outer wall.

Hope that helps.

Gary.

Any ideas on how to store hitch and bars when not in use?

I store mine in the passthrough. A bar on each side and hitch on either as room dictates.

Put two new braided pigtails on my LP bottles, to get rid of the slight LP odor.

Added a bolster to cover up the Murphy Bed Bermuda Triangle.Click image for larger version
