"poop trolly". <gigglesnort>

I just put some replacement lights in my camper, where a couple had burned out. I replaced them with some LED's. Wow...my wife is gonna love them. A bit bright for me, but placed in the right areas, like the kitchen area, it really brightens up the area. And I did a test, and with my entry light switch, it turns on 4 overhead lights. I replaced two of them (the kitchen lights), plus the overhead lights for the dining table (actually where our sofa bed used to be). And with the old lights, you could hear the converter fan spin up. With the replacement lights, it spins up much slower and quieter (less draw on the power). I will be replacing more of these old style lights with the LED's.

I finally got around to making a fix for the bunk area closet. After every little bump in the road the clothes would fall off the clothes rod. I cut a clothes rod to size and trimmed 1/2 inch off the bottom and put two broom clips. This should work. We will see on our annual trip to Ft Wilderness in a few weeks.

The Lippert jack on my TT failed last weekend when I was hooking up to head out for the weekend. When I got home I ordered a Husky Brute HB4500 jack to replace it. It arrived today and I installed it tonight. What a difference! The Husky is faster, quieter and smoother than the Lippert ever was. It even has a holder for my 7 pin trailer plug.

Nice job. I just throw a bath towel (or pair of jeans, etc) over the rod when moving.

Haha, that figures. I thought about my hack for two weeks and decided on my contraption. Your idea is faster, easier, cheaper and simple. I spent two weeks thinking and $5 for my fix. I need more coffee...

Bought a like new used Honda EU2000 generator for a great price. Works great. Pretty quiet, my wife and I were talking at a normal level under three feet away! Now I have to install an easy start type capacitor to my TT air conditioning unit. Probably will be chained into truck bed for camping.

Checked and topped up air pressure in all 12 tires yesterday. They've been within safe ranges but inconsistent with each other for a while. My wife's been at me for 4 or 5 travel days now that she's annoyed when she reviews the pressures on the TPMS.

Should have done the spares, but was lazy.

Not the greatest site, but still disappointed that we're home this weekend.

Cut shim pads in various sizes for blocking stabilizers but mostly to act as foot pads for my MorRyde steps with or without the step legs removed. Re packed my blocking (I carry a LOT) in the front storage, moved all the potable water items & hoses to the rear under bunk storage, and loaded three outdoor folding chairs and table under the bed in the front storage. Bought a couple HDTV antennas to try out. Did not work well at home. One flat window type and one magnetic base stubby, both with amplifiers. Factory UFO antenna doesn't work well at home either, although it worked well at a couple CGs nearer the stations.

I installed smart tiles in my kitchen area for a different look. I made patterns from paper for cutting around the window. Overall I'm pleased with the outcome it is a easy DIY if you take your time, smart tile instructions are kind of weak. I found the best price at RVupgrades even with shipping.
