I put in a new shower head today. I replaced some of the black trim because it was short in a couple places.

Ripped out upper bunk

Took out the upper bunk, glad I didn't buy that second Zinus bunk mattress
My granddaughter had used it a few times but we mostly only get one grandkids at a time. You can see it really opens things up. An adult can easily use the remaining bunk, now single bed. It can be an extra seat, too. Some screws werescrewed from the bathroom wall side. Sawzall used to cut one screw on each side and ended up ripping out the final one on the bathroom wall. I'll need to make a trim rail or shelf around where the screws came out. And and a surface cable run for the furnace thermostat that comes out of the side wall, went thought the bed frame and through the bench back 2/3 wall. I'll reinstall my clothes rod I added up higher near the ceiling.
You can see the 2x2" framing, just had two narrow Luan pieces on top, and about 8 long screws holding it to the wall. I'm going to reassemble the upper bunk platform and make it so I can drop it back into place and use it laying on a rim.

Part of the reason I wanted to show the bed framing is that people often post asking, "what is the weight capacity of the bunk bed" for different trailers. The pictures will give you a good idea it isn't much. Ten screws hold the frame to the walls, one centered on each end and four per side. However, at least two on the short bathroom wall are NOT through studs.
Bottom bunk is just a sheet of 3/4" plywood hinged onto a rim.
If I want to be able to drop in the upper frame, I'll need to wall paper across the screw holes and have the rim below that. Maybe an outdoorsy border trim wall paper.

On that note, can anyone having knowledge of both a Husky Super Foot and a Fastway Flip Foot make a comparison?

On the Husky, AFAIK, they all have drop down adjustable shafts. I've been using mine to cut down on under tongue jack blocking.

We have the Irvine Day/Night roller shades. Today I adjusted the roll stops on 3 of them that werenít going up all the way. Took all of 20 minutes, or a beer and a half if you use the metric system. Went over a few wet passes in the Rockies, havenít washed the windows yet. Maybe tomorrow?

Hi Folks, With all this time on my hands I've been cleaning, lubing etc. Got around to cleaning and treating the slide seals. Realized that the bedroom closet slide does NOT have an outer wiper seal on the bottom of it. No sign that one was ever there. My question, if anyone out there owns the same rig, would you please look and see if you have one? I don't know if this was a purpose omission or a Morning morning build. Easy enough to put one on IF most of them have that wiper seal.

Thanks and Stay Safe until we can safely hit the road again!

Picked mine up from Camping World after waiting weeks for a part. Still no part, but at least it's at my house, and no more parts being taken off while in their possession. Missing the cap that covers the manual tongue jack hole.

So our house septic tank is in desperate need of a pump out. This weekend we have been using the camper's shower to keep water usage on the septic down until I can get a truck to the house for a pump. Does this count as camping?

Maybe. I think the pump out service has got to be considered "essential life sustaining business".

Nice job.

I always find it interesting to see other folks opinions on things.

I've seen lots of posts over the years where someone wanted to remove a booth dinette and install chairs but yours is the first I've seen the other way.

Overall real nice job - clean, professional. Looks like you replaced the slide back wall with new paneling while doing it as well. Storage under benches I assume?
