Would really been exciting to meet ya Glenn (hope you don't mind me using your name...can't ever remember how to spell your username without scrolling up to look for it). That would have been the bee's knees!

    What is a bee's knees? The phrase 'the bee's knees', meaning 'the height of excellence' became popular in the US in the 1920s along with 'the cat's whiskers' and 'the ...
And for the record, I wasn't even a gleam in my Dad's eye in 1920...he wouldn't even be born for another 8 years.

I've heard that saying before but I wanted to hear from you to see if you knew what you were saying.

As inexpensive as those are, and how great they are, I don't understand why many manufacturers don't make this a standard feature.

OC, tell Ms Frankie I figured out what I'm going to do with them. They'll look great sitting on my brick fireplace hearth, off to the side. The drawers are perfect for those long lighters, long matches and pieces of the 7' pine tap root I spent weeks chopping up in to 1"X4" sticks with a hatchet *years* ago. Dad brought that tap root over for me on a flat bed trailer probably 10 or 11 years ago.
Very true Weezer, The only thing I have ever got was a hard time from the old man and wonderful kisses from Frankie. Plus lunch, dinner breakfast and great bed to sleep in and treated as family . So I came out pretty good also. Like you said you can't meet better people PERIOD... PS you know talking nice about him will only swell his head more. You got to yank his chain to.....

Good LORD the FOOD! Yep, I think she must prep for DAYS ahead of time for those meals. THEN as we're leaving, here she comes with food-to-go, all packed up and ready to take with us. Hilarious to see such a tiny lil petite lady churning out those meals.

Southern Hospitality...in spades....

Kinda hard to yank his chain though, not much of an opportunity when he's steadily yankin' yours! He had me totally speechless at one point...ask him about the bottle jack thingamajig....had me dumbfounded and beet red.

Utilizing some 1/2" grade 8 bolts I fastened the assemblies to the rear section of the I - beam frame of the coach. I wired them from the battery through a circuit breaker with 10 gauge wire.
I am now able to fully level the coach without worrying about stacking blocks under the tires. They are powerful enough that it will lift my tires off the ground, though it won't be normal practice. The coach is alot more stable now too since the feet lock in when in position. My front hydraulic jacks are self equalizing so the side to side leveling is done through the rear then I level front to back with the front gear..
I like that idea!

I don't understand why those $15 things aren't standard. As easy and simple as it is to do it makes things so much easier. It's one of the first things we added to our new camper when we got it.

What did you do to your camper today?

Replaced the no-baffle above the fridge with my own..

Already have fans replaced and quiet.
Also added some insulation on the side of the cabinets.

The TV got some new shoes today, yesterday after I picked BUB up from the dealer, about 25 of 85 miles home, the right rear tire on my truck decided to come apart. Luckily it went to shaking instead of blowing, it even held together long enough for me to make it to an exit and a nice parking lot instead of the side of the interstate.

I went ahead and pulled BUB to the tire store and got her shoes balanced.

That's a big coil for dissipating the heat. Did you add a second fan under it? Where your cabinets getting hot? I can see why from a coil that big......Great Mod..
