I made a pattern out of a piece of manila folder, transferred it to the tile and cut it with a mini grinder. I dressed the front edge with a bit of 3 in 1 oil so it would not look too dull



I used Lexel to secure it and blue masking tape to hold it from falling or drooping while the Lexel cured. I also sealed the top with the Lexel so water would not get under it and form mold.



Here are a few pics:

EMS

Started installing my Progressive EMS system. Pretty simple project, except for the close quarters where it's got to go. Shame I like to eat so much, would be much easier if were young slim man again. It will get done though!

Replaced the electric hot water element, hope it works. Forgot to release pressure first. It stayed under pressure for five days!
Changed out the tongue jack for an electric Husky Brute 4500#. I'm too old for all that cranking Got a 2 pack of covers for it, too.
Got in my replacement spring bar for my WDH.

I have that shame as well, one trick I do is when tearing down to leave I put my table near stinky slinky and 50amp power cord. I put totes one table so I do not have to bend over to put them in their cubbies. And no sweat drops on eye glasses

Whoooooot

Changed out the stupid lock on the outside shower door with a twist thumb latch.
Installed the plug holder onto the tongue jack that came with it.

Put the hitch back in the pickup, blew several fuses till I got to town to get some 40 amp fuses. To their credit they said it might take a fourty for the high-performance motor. Hitch back in glad it is windy and cooler as it is a lot of climbing in the bed, and out to move the truck a bit. Head out tomorrow.

Front AC had a bad vibration last night, so we shut it off. It started when the compressor kicked in. Working on the ambition to climb up and have a boo.

Many campgrounds will hold a package until you get there. We had to do it on our Alaska trip. Just call your destination and see if they will. They'll usually let you know how what address to send it to.

Well tonight, after settling down in our camp site in Durango, CO, I climbed on the roof of the Forester and guerilla taped holes in 2 of the roof vents damaged by hail as we drive from Ridgeway to Ouray. And after a snow blizzard hit us between Ouray and Durango. What a day. Check out the altitude. The E-450 struggled on the 9į inclines but handled the downhill runs great with the engine breaking in tow haul. Pulling a jeep liberty. Click image for larger version

I fabricated a lock for the Andersen hitch. The lock keeps the handle in the locked position whether or not itís hooked to the truck.

Post Few things yesterday...

New Alpha Wolf 26DBH-L had China bombs replaced 2 days ago, checked torque...lubed the EZ lube bearings.....installed Graystone Fireplace for half of the $500+ I was quoted at dealer
Dry fit...had to sort out how to deal with screw holes from cabinet doors I removed and gap along the side...

Used one cabinet door to cover the weird bare space created a more usable storage space that I can fill with junk but not have to look at it.....


Replaced the blinding puck lights in the bedroom with dimmable and "pointable" reading lights...


Nothing life changing but always fun to add some personal touches.


SORRY- Can't figure out why some pics posted sideways....can't fix them....

FWIW. I had a squirrel cage break(dirt robbers) during the pack-up for a trip. I found out what happened. Could not source a fan locally. I epoxied it back together. Ordered a new one for later....stayed fixed till the storm took it, so I had a spare new one.
