I have two very large drawers under my sink and occasionally when traveling one or the other slides open. I wanted something to hold them closed better, but I don't like the look of bungee cords or hooks. I took some scrap maple and walnut and made a flip down latch to hold the drawers closed during travel.

Does the job and is unique ans easy to use.

Installed the TST TMPS sensors on the 5er today. Had to call TST to get it set up but Jim @ TST was very helpful and walked me thru the setup. Getting ready to head back to MI and found out the water pump is not working. Don't need it on the way home but will need to get it sorted out.

I searched out all the magnets on Amazon I could find. Of course, looked for the best price but also bought the tallest ones I could find to span the distance from the door to the TT side. The bunk door has a rubber bumper near 1" tall and the cargo door has an odd plastic catch you open up and hook on the cargo door edge. I didn't want to remove either.

The vent screen cover is now bright white while the main body of the vent cover is a translucent white. Not a great match but 100% better than pee yellow! If it annoys me at all (not yet), I'll remove the whole cover and spray paint that It's raining again or I'd post an after pic.

Finished de-winterizing. Flushed fresh water tank, used happy camper extreme on grey and black tanks (worked great) No water leaks in camper or water lines. A/Cs, water heater and furnace all worked. Spent our first night. In other words it was a wonderful day. Let the camping season begin.

Put some Rejex on it to keep the bugs from sticking - it also shines up pretty good

New WDH

Finished installing my new Anderson WDH and took everything for a test drive. Since our TT is relatively small and travel distances were short, I did without a WDH until now and it was okay. I have hopes for improvement with this, such as reduced sway and bounce, maybe better steering too.

Replaced the toilet seat , the original was very flimsy and would slam shut . Put in a no slam seat , very nice to not hear that slam in the middle of the night
