Today I pained two cabinet doors I made. First and foremost I am not a carpenter. They are to cover two cubby holes in the bathroom beside the toilet in our SOB Keystone Cougar. The DW refuses to put anything in the cubbies as they are beside the toilet. We decided to not bother trying to match stain as there is more than enough brown and tan in this 5th wheel. LOL So we let our 12 y/o DS pick colors. For the record we are not Gator fans, we are Vol fans. Yesterday I put a Max Air bent cover over the bathroom vent.Click image for larger version

Agreed, but, what does the hail do to the bonding of “plastic” and insulation stuff?

Tonight we added some shelving organizers to a few of our closets. Our Avenger 27RBS has TONS of closet space, but it needs shelving. Lots of wasted space otherwise.

New to this forum: Today I tore out almost all the carpet. Removed all the upper cabinets (not kitchen). Chopped the sleeper sofa up into pieces and removed. Removed the dinette. Had to deal with 3 screws that were screwed in from the ceiling ~ what a pain ! And now waiting to hear back from the company to find out what in the world is under the underlayment floor in the bedroom closet (5th wheel). I think's all metal and there are nails that will not budge. Does anyone know? And another question: Has anyone had experience laying a vinyl laminate flooring in a 5th wheel with 2 slides? Would love some feedback. Thanks. (58 year old woman who loves to do remodel projects)

Got my inexpensive 30amp TT power inlet installed, replacing the Furrion one with the stripped terminal. It does require a little more care to align the retaining screw ring in the input cable.
That in turn allowed me to install my Progressive Industries EMS30HWC. I ended up mounting it to the top of the inner wheel well under the rear dinette bench. I was limited in position selection by the short load wire that supplies the TT. One cool thing is you can rotate & install the EMS display in four different positions, it plugs into a multi-pin socket. That way you have multiple options for where the input and output of the EMS gets located.
I got the pow-wah!

I installed a hitch on the Rockwood

I'm almost done with the installation of a hitch on the Rockwood.
Still need to paint and move the spare tire.
Hitch is for the bikes or the generator.

Looks low below the bumper!Does your Rockwood have a lift kit installed? Most standard height Rockwood units would Drag with something that low below the bumper! But you did a quality job on the hitch! Youroo! !

With that many bolts, the earth will give way before the hitch.....if it ever does drag.

The shear strength of a grade 5, 1/2" bolt is well over 14,000lb. And there's 10 of them.

Added a 15 amp power inlet to go to its own receptical inside the TT. Simple concept, PITA in practice. Took me almost 3 hours. Cut a hole in the out side, cut a hole on the inside a few feet up vertically and route a wire from one to the other.

What did you do to your camper today?

Nice work, I don’t know if I like the placement of that outlet. What are you using it for that you wanted a plug there? Did you cut the original plug end off and wire to that receptacle?

Im doing the same, looks like the same plug I have, but was thinking of wiring to an outlet under the dinette.

2019 No Boundaries 19.5, the factory installed tire carrier was already bending and falling apart, so I upgraded to a beefier unit. Also got the parts together to upgrade from a single propane bottle to a dual arrangement.

I would like to do the same. Where did you get the nice looking plug on the outside.
