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.

I don't know what the brand is but I have something like this in my house, it was left by PO next to the fireplace. I'll need to see what the brand is.

Thanks for sharing this; looks like an ideal way to fight a fire inside an rv without the nasty mess of a dry chemical extinguisher. Condensed aerosol extinguishers are another option and look more like a fire extinguisher, less like a road flare.

As one poster to the video stated, "fire extinguisher demo without fire? I wanna see it kills fire" and another said, "This is like a car wash demo without washing a car."

So here's an actual demo:

Took my 5er back to the dealer to take care of a list of about 8 minor items under warranty. Hopefully they get everything done by Sept. 19th when I’m picking it up before our next trip.

Bidding on buying TWO Champion 2000 inverter generators, 47# each. After I get them then I'll order in a parallel kit. THEN I'll be prepared for glamping Boondocking!
Oh, and loaded it out for camping this weekend.

For boondogging, I've never needed more than my 20 year old Honda 2000, and it usually run at half power. To me, that is the essence of boondogging.

Orange duct tape

Last Spring. I had a back-up camera installed on my truck but I've always had trouble seeing the receiver on the small screen. I saw this bright orange duct tape the other day and put a strip on the receiver. Also put a piece on the jack leg so I will stop raising it before the it goes past its limit.

I did a test fit of my new Tentproinc sun screen. Seems very well made with a nice storage case. They now come with four tie downs stakes and cords instead of the original three that folks complained about. At my last campout the afternoon sun was killing me making sitting under the awning miserable even with the awning all the way lowered this should help reduce the effects of morning or afternoon sun.

Those screens are amazing. Very noticeable cooler temps when the sun is out. Mine came with 21 grommet holes on the bottom that allows me to set the screen up along with wire fencing to keep the dogs in. Takes about five minutes to set all the pegs in place but well worth the trouble.

Iím interested in getting one of those screens. I see that the Carefree brand is less expensive than the Tentproinc on Amazon. Did you look at the Carefree brand and find it to be lower quality than the Tentproinc?

Just slide it on the rack, then put a bungee on it... turned out great!

2 pieces of 10ílong thin unistrut... I even had enough room left over to bungee the little metal hitch handle

DW's 401(k) Plan

#1 - Found a kink in my vent hose while I was looking for my Schwintek controller. I had wondered why it was such a bear filling the FW tank. Stopped by Lowes and picked up a PEX corner support and smoothed out the kink. We'll see next Saturday how it works. Sorry - no pic and I'm NOT going to take the panel down again to take one. Guess you'll have to take my word for it.
#2 - Reattached one of the fascia boards on the bedroom slide that had come loose.
#3 - Reattached the supports for the grease catch tray on the portable grill.
#4 - Sat down with DW in the MH and planned the menus for our trip starting next weekend.
#5 - DW started stocking the cabinets with dry goods needed for our trip.

Hey dblr - Are you still going to be at the booth at the RV show in Hershey?

Yes I will, we pick up our passes that Monday and Tuesday is trade show days so we will probably know exactly where we will be located that day. It will be at the Keystone RV Center just not sure where and what that dealer will handle will let you know more when we do, safe trip to the show. Where are you staying?

I downloaded the show app.... so I'll have a map with me. Definitely plan to stop by my favorite dealer! Have dealt with Keystone for the past 6 years.
We're at the Harrisburg East CG. We'll roll in Thursday and hit the 3pm discount and have tickets for Friday. Saturday my oldest son/DIL/granddaughter will be visiting, so we're going to do the family thing in the area.

I'll be stopping in to see Jr at keystone too. He was great when we bought our tt, I just wish I liked a Forest River fifth wheel. I am really liking a layout that only grand design has, but hopefully I can find something that keystone carries that we like.
