Installed the replacement fridge in the outdoor kitchen.


Don't drill holes in the sides of these little fridges... there's stuff in there. Ask me how I know.

It is called the condenser coil. Pretty common on small refer units.

LOL, yeah, I know, now.



Last one of these little guys I dealt with still had probably R-12 or R-22 in it and still had the condenser on the outside in the back, instead of in the sides like they apparently are now. Left it with my college buddies when I graduated.


Times, designs, and manufacturing methods change.

Gee, all I did was buy a small stick on mirror from Aldis and put that and the over the cabinet door paper towel holder from Amazon in it. I did dump the small electronic dehumidifier, about 10-12 ounces after most of a week.

LED Lights!

Got all of my running lights and tail/brake lights converted over to LED.


0.45 Amps total draw on the running lights after converting to all LEDs.


They look to be about the same brightness as the 194 bulbs that they replaced. I think the tail/brake lights might be a bit brighter, they had 1157s in them before.


Yesterday I also got my wheels taken in to be refurbished and powder coated. I don't know how they will turn out, but they can't possibly look as bad as they did!

Enjoy; maybe some pics?
Trying to finish a kitchen remodel and then out to Nashville to see the grandchildren - then some camping on the coast.

Recaulked the kitchen and bathroom sinks.
Started packing for our trip this weekend to Chattahoochee Bend campgrounds in GA. While we are there we are going to the GA Ren Faire.

Finished entering item info into my motor home/camping database. Now, when I am trying to find the little bag of tractor pins, or whatever, I open the database on the iPad or iPhone and it tells me it’s in storage bin #5, located in storage compartment number three. I keep the master database on my home server so everything stays synced across the devices if I add, change or delete records.

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.

Installed Hellwig Anti-sway Bar. Took about 4 hours alone. Tight workspace and weight of bar were what cause it to not be a 30 minutes job.

Pulled it forward, took the cover off and loaded it up for the first outing. Also installed a storage box and digital thermostat.

What did you do to your camper today?

I threw away the box, but the Dometic 310 I think has the standard 5 1/2 in space between the screws. I got it at Lowes or Home Depot (Kohler). Again don't remember which, but I did get a plastic, slow closing model. They have both wood and plastic models. There is a module of some sort behind the toilet. This will be exposed with the new seat. I am attempting to fashion a cover for it. I will take pictures when it is done. Trying to determine the cleanest way to attach the cover to the back of the seat.

Wife decided to recover the couch and the arm rests by the dinette, this is as far as she got today before we head off tomorrow. The "leather" was flaking off. But when I pulled the couch out we found that the slide floor had seperated from the wall and had sagged about 2". There was a screw about every 2 feet. I jacked the floor up until it was in place and drilled and inserted screws about every 6 inches in the sole plate, looked to be 1" square tube. Then went inside and put a 1 x6 against the wall vertically and screws there to to give some added support. I forgot to take pictures of it before I started.Click image for larger version

Ordered another 10' potable water hose. Could use the 4' when connecting the filter but the 4' cost 30% more than the 10', plus the 10' has more uses.
Measured and ordered in the proper flying insect screen for the water heater. The one I ordered in during winter is too small and past the return date ;(
Removed and painting white the pee yellow screen holder on my Camco vent cover. Turned a deep yellow from white over last summer. May end up removing the whole cover and painting it depending on how the screen holder compares.
May install magnetic catches today on the underbed storage exterior door and bunk storage door.
