Lightened up the gvw on my 5th wheel by consuming some beverage from the fridge...on second thought, maybe I didn't as I found myself going to the bathroom to make room for more "beverage" from the fridge. Tomorrow I will dump the black tank!

checked my mouse traps and checked for mouse damage. Mice do climb tires. Of all the traps I have set they are all in my rear storage right behind my tires.

Installed a 50-amp RV outlet on the outside of the garage to hook the camper up to.

Today, and for the last month, I've been living in mine on the road.

Several "projects" over this time. Solar powered lighting for flag pole while camping, speed control for range hood fan, cleaned storage compartments, and still working on cold weather heat for battery compartment (just because).

We are halfway into a two month residency in our 17 foot “weekender” trailer, and everything is fine. Well, almost everything. DW caught flu, developed pneumonia, and shared flu with me. As soon as we started to recover, we disinfected the 17 foot petri dish.

Just curious what the process was to make these?
They look really nice and sleek!

Dropped it off to get RV Flexarmor roof sprayed on. Taking advantage of the time it will be gone to revamp the pad where I store it. (replacing gravel with a concrete pad)

If I can be noisy, what are they charging you to spray that material on?

Having Henry's applied to the roof of the 5th wheel. New fridge vent and a new bathroom vent lid. Added a new vent lid and 3 vent covers to the motor home.

I will take a picture of the frame of the next one. I used the original width of the factory installed ones plus 1 inch. The added space is for the side panels.

Exercised the generator for an hour (after a quick chat with the neighbor to make sure it wouldn't be an annoyance for him).

Wash and wax for the truck and trailer. I’ve never found prices better than Yuma!

The current rate is 170.00 per linear foot of roof. (my roof measured out at 39 feet)

Mine will be a little bit more as they will have to replace a small amount of roof decking.

Even though my unit is only 1 year old, it had a small pinhole in the roof membrane caused by a staple that was sticking up through it (it was only one leg of a staple). The hole was extremely small, the only way I noticed it was the area around it looked "funny", because the OSB below the membrane had swollen somewhat. The pinhole was right in the middle of the roof, with nothing around it.

I pulled out the remnants of the staple and put an Eternabond patch over it. About 1 foot behind the pinhole was a soft spot the size of a hockey puck, and when i palpated it found there was no wood left in that area. Just goes to show that water will get in and cause damage any way it can.

I then decided to have it repaired and coated so I never have to worry about it again. Bonus - no more caulking, and no more chalking from the EPDM running down the side of my unit!!

The "new" looks exactly like what we just took OUT of our Sanibel!

Man, if we only knew that earlier, the 2 of us could have got together & I would have possibly shipped you our old treatments.

My DW grew tired of the boxed look so, we went with standard rods & valances. I did have to stain/install some trim to hide the black metal window frames.
