Ok, I'm new, I'm buying a used trailer mainly to keep in one spot, most of the time for hunting. Any suggestions on where to start to learn all this, like how to get your black water serviced, etc?

There's a black wire and a white wire.....I figure there ain't much way to get it backwards?

What did I do to my camper today?

Walked by it - several times. Looks like last weekend was our last trip out for this year.

Big changes in the household for the time being.

Got the roll out drawer for the basement finished and installed. Will give it a day or two to let the paint dry.

OC that's gorgeous!

Edited to ask: what are those rolls to the right, on the wall? mats?

What I do today? bought chem pods for the black tank.

AND, I know what wmtire's doing (for) his today! Just drove by his shop and saw it *in progress*. So far it's beautimous!

They are sun screens for the awing. Two for the main tube and two for the ends. The ground mats are rolled up and in the 4" tubes mounted under the trailer between the steps and the basement.

DUH, I forgot about your awning screens. You're so danged unorganized I'm ashamed to have you see ours when we roll in.

But, we'll be in much better shape afterwards!

I still have to get those hooks like (IIRC) Glenn uses for his fishing rods. For now they're in a good place...the cabinets above the recliners, across the back of the living room.

OK, now you have your new slider made...whatcha gonna find to do to keep ya outta trouble for the *next* few days? Catch up on nap time?

Sucks big time.
Only way around it is buying a 211k $99.00 and an additional $8.00 a month pay as you go.

Made a hook on adjustable step for a good friend. 1st one, don't know if it will work or not, adjusts to a 6", 7" or 8" step.
