Hung our vacuum in the kid's bathroom:


Put these jar things together for my wife to hang her makeup brushes in our bathroom:


And went to install a fan to the rear of my fridge. I was surprised to find a fan already there!


The new one is quite a bit bigger:


Unfortunately the wires on the new one are so tiny that I didn't have the right stuff to put spade connectors on it. I'm going to have to try my hand at soldering and will try to reuse the existing connectors from the old fan.

Thank you! That gets me started. I'm looking at the sensors now and I'm going to try my hand at this while on our stay in FL. What other parts will I need besides the sensors?

Buy the Mopeka kit first and then decide if you want to do a battery modification.

Thank you. Common sense. I appreciate it. Sometimes my enthusiasm overides

Waiting for my Dexter axle and mobile mechanic to call me for an appointment to change out the defective axle. Probably next week. Getting ready to load the TT for a trip to Mesa, AZ to take the Grand kid to a Rockies Spring Training game or two.

We did. We were not having issues, so no idea if it was good/bad/indifferent.

Just replaced the factory water filter housing on my camper. I finally got tired of the high price for the filters. Installed the same unit that I am using on my house so that I can just buy one type of filter for both the house and my RV.

That little voice in my head said "don't be lazy, just do it". When I took the nut off of the spindle on the next wheel, it had welded itself on to the spindle. Took all I could do to muscle if off with an 18" cheater bar. Needs a new axle.

Looks like my trip is either off, or I'll be moteling it.

Going to call Dexter in the morning to see how good their customer service is. Looks like someone beat the crap out of the end of the spindle too.Attachment 197614Attachment 197615Attachment 197616
I'm sorry you found a bad spindle but glad your discipline to continue the repack work resulted in finding the problem at home. Yes, you found a major headache but the potential damage for a failure on the road...

Dexter responded quickly. They are sending a complete axle assembly. No hassle what so ever. Should be here in a week. Local mobile HD truck mechanic will bring it to my home and install it. If it all goes as planned Dexter will get 5 gold stars!

It's the same up here in NH. I need temps in the mid 20's at night and in the upper 30's, lower 40's during the day to make maple syrup. I'm usually around a third of a crop at this time of the year and haven't made a drop yet. It's been way too cold so far this year.

Weíve had a perfect 24-36 hours for you in Houston then. First overnight freeze this season here. Weíll be back in the upper 70s by Friday.

Good luck with your crop. I hope your weather cooperates soon.
