Going to do the same but add some USB ports by the beds and bed side lights. How are you powering the fuse box?

I added a USB outlet next to the bunks today, and a second cheap 24dc battery to get me through next summer (going to by a pair of Battle Borns once they release the upcoming models with built in monitoring and heaters).

Found this on Amazon, gonna but to light up the pass thru storage area:

Pumped in the pink stuff tonight.
Heard it's supposed to get down to around freezing - haven't had any issues and don't need any. Sunseeker goes in storage on Nov 9 anyway. I've got too many other things going on the next couple of weekends. Still need to get some wood split for the winter. I'm a little behind.

Changed oil in the Generator, started loading dry stuff for our trip south in a couple of weeks. Looking to spend a bit of time in AZ and NV over the cold months that happen in the great white north.
I did add pink stuff and blew out the lines a while ago.
I built a carrier for the blue boy that tilts and goes in the receiver on the truck so I won't be dragging the tote across the rocks while dry camping around Quqrtzsite AZ

Got a slightly larger television than the one I had in the TT given to me, had to eBay a replacement remote. About 2-3" bigger diagonally, seems much bigger, barely fit without lowering the mount on the wall.
Mounted a rotating amplified digital TV antenna on the garage. I bought it over a year ago to test out on the house, not that good of reception there. Mounted it to the garage roof to supply the TT in the storage position. So far one transmitter, 4 channels working using a guesstimated direction. No reception without the amplifier. Next I'll use the Antenna point app to point better at the "local" transmitters. They are mostly 45-80 miles away ;(
Have out of state company in the spare bedroom and now the two grandkids tonight. Might "camp out" in the TT with my grandson so my granddaughter can sleep with grandma in my bed.

We did the final cleaning in preparation for our 6 month winter trip. We are looking forward to another winter with no snow!

Winterized it and then dropped it off at the dealer (for the second time) to have them replace the passenger side fender that was installed by the factory about 2-3Ē off centre. You donít see it when the slide is out and most donít see it when the slide is in, but I noticed it during our PDI. Itís purely cosmetic and a minor thing but itís a bigger job than I want to attempt because they have to slice the fender and trim 2 different types of the skirt trim (one for the slideout and one forward of the slideout under the door.

I spent some time installing "heat tape" to all my tanks and all my plumbing. Should make it basically winter-able. Planning to use on those sub-25 degree nights. Pics when done.

Repacked the wheel bearings.

Everything looked good and no grease weeping past the rear seals.

Brake lining wearing even and was adjusted perfectly.

Not too bad for 15k.

Rockwood is reachable on forestriverinc.com.

As for me, I bought a new dresser for the garage. The kids need an extra drawer and the only one is made of pressed board and was literally falling apart (even after being repaired multiple times).

Bought an Indoor/Outdoor Thermometer . Going to keep the outdoor sensor in the fridge and the main unit in the truck. We don't travel with the LP on and this will allow us to monitor the temp without opening the fridge and letting the cold air out.
