For me personally, there's really nothing to look forward to in those months. No holidays, no vacations. Just a lot of cold, wet and dark.

Added an inlet to my docking station. I placed the outlet just under the tv. I was lucky that I could put it in the docking station which prevented me from having to drill through a wall.

Swapped out my 12awg cord going from my garage outlet to my TT adapter. Made it 15' vice 30' (cut a cable in half and put some new ends on the cables).
Per the voltage calculator, went from a 6.35% loss to 5.56% loss for a 0.95vac gain starting at 120vac in the house. Was 120 cable feet, now 105. Figures based on 20 amp load, typical of the AC, fridge, and converter load together. Also the breaker on the circuit That is 113.33vac vice 112.38vac.
May not sound like much, but maybe enough to not trip the EMS on a hot day. At 120' of cable, the loss was 7.62vac. At 105', the loss is 6.67vac.
I suspect my previous EMS shutting the system down was also a source voltage drop from the house AC running at the time. The voltage at the TT was 114,with just the converter load, that day and was 117 at 8PM. Yesterday, a cold day, the voltage in the TT was 122 per the EMS. LOTS of source voltage fluctuation!
Hence my next spring plan for running either 10/3 or 8/2 straight across the yard from the CB box in the house to the corner of the garage. The 10/3 would be to feed 2 separate 30 amp busses if I go with that.
The magic of electricity!

Finally got our 5'er towed home to Dallas from Abilene, using "We Will Transport It" hauling service. I guess our season is over until our truck gets back from the body shop.

Boomer, if you can choke down the cost of 8/2 plus ground, go with that. A bit overkill, but, more is good, right?

More Power...arr arrr arruuugghh!!!! (Thanks Tim Ďtoolmaní Taylor....lol)

Finished installing a 12 inch amplified SAS Bazooka sub woofer under the couch. Fits just right in the back corner. That’s an area which is a little hard to get to so since it wasn’t normally used for storage the Bazooka was perfect. And, the sound is awesome.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

The forward lower plastic faring on my slide tore off on this last trip so I made a sheetmetal replacement. The pic shows it being fitted, I still have to remove it wash it with soap and water and rub it down with white vinegar before I paint it gloss black like the rest of the trim

This is such a small upgrade and it took maybe a minute or less to install, hardly worth mentioning but it makes a world of a difference. No more on/off on the shower head, just twist the valve to reduce or increase the flow without messing with the temperature settings.

I know a thermostatically controlled valve would have been more sophisticated but for 2 bucks at the local farm supply store, who could have resisted.

Installed a PI 30 amp hard wired EMS. Also made a plug to eliminate the floating ground error when running off my generator.
