Put indoor/outdoor carpet on rough plywood under matress. Swapped out mattress from guest room to TT. And put in new faucet in bathroom. With all the loose connections you find in a TT, the nuts holding the faucet in place were anything but. It was a bear getting the wrench up in that tight space. We're on the road Wednesday to Colorado City, Colorado. Click image for larger version

Replaced the coach entry door Frosted glass with a tinted glass with pleated blackout shade. Matches all the other windows now. I never did like the look of the factory setup.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

Replacing the frosted glass with a see through tinted window is a great upgrade. I never liked going out the door not knowing exactly what or who is there.

Probably brightens up the inside too.

Especially helpful when going out with my dogs they can be excitable.

Finally got the rig home from storage. Stay at home orders prevented fair ground from letting owners get their rig. Have been trying to get a Progressive EMS HW50C installed and I have a short when I apply power. Trying to get that traced and sorted out. In the mean time, I will need to install a junction box to reconnect the service cable I cut in half so I have power to the rig. I did replace the shower head and one hatch door catch that broke. Cleaned all the bird poo off the pin box and found that birds had stuffed the pin box with leaves, twigs, grass, etc. so got that cleaned out and now need to fabricate a cover to keep them out. Probably a piece of sceen.

Lol it does look like it doesn’t it? I took everything apart to inspect before going to town for parts. Put slides back out while waiting for the leaf spring to come in.

Made wiring for my poop pump!

Flow jet macerator, had it for a year, never wired it up.
Got a package of 12awg capacity Anderson PowerPoles for connecting and disconnecting things. Put it on the lines for my now removable electric tongue jack. Repurposed some heavy 12awg gauge 2 wire PA speaker SJOOW cable using the Andersons on both ends of a 20' section. Same connector on the Flow Jet power lines.
Ready to push some poo!

Seriously, now if I want, I can park my TT on the concrete pad off our back porch and have the equivalent of full hook ups. Granted, only 20amp service at the moment, but plenty of garden hose supply, and sufficient garden hose for discharge (in brown to avoid mixups out to the front of house sewer cleanout.

Cleaned the roof and vent covers and recaulked the roof seam at the very back of my rv.
I tried to get a good pic to show the difference between where it was cleaned and where it was still dirty but the shadow of sun really coming through the trees makes it hard to see. Anyway, I was happy with the results and I hope that the bright white will help reflect some of the direct sunlight this summer. Attachment 230458

Upgraded the water pump to a Shurflo 4008-101-E65 the same as I installed in our previous TT.

The courier just delivered a Stromberg Carlson AM-533 Lend-A-Hand Extended Assist Rail so that will get installed as soon as I can get some ProFlex RV sealant. The extended hand rail will be a great addition to the new Torklift GlowStep Revolution Uprising that I installed recently.

Finally got around to working the running lights into a spare rocker switch a lot in the panel so now I can just flick the switch and have the running lights on while camping.

I use CarGuys. Seems pretty good but probably very similar to all the other “hydrid” wax products. But, this one is definitely the easiest I’ve ever seen to apply. Started just after breakfast and finished before lunch.

Installed a rear camera in the Furrion 'bubble' at the back of our Surveyor 252RBLE.

Used this thread as base inspiration - https://www.forestriverforums.com/fo...ra-109660.html along with some other bits and pieces.

Wanted something that would work with my existing Garmin 785, and also wanted to put it together in a way that's completely reversible.

Not recommending any of the vendors involved, just listing out how I put it together.

- Garmin RV 785 nav unit.
- Garmin BC 35 wireless camera.
- Adapter bracket and power pigtail for the Furrion 'bubble' - https://www.tadibrothers.com/product...-power-adapter
- Pigtail adapter for the BC35-https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004OCCARQ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Got everything put together between the rain bands and it works quite nicely so far. I suppose I really should do a nice writeup on this with pictures and such, but the rainy weather here in Tampa is making that a bit of a challenge. Plus we're heading out to Wekiwa Springs State Park tomorrow so I'm a bit pressed for time. I'll put something together after we get back
