Sorry I missed this.
Yes pressure tank for the water pump.
So the pump runs less.

Uncovered JC this AM. Now I can organize the basement and give her a coat of wax on the first warm day.

Got the 4 3/4" pipe braces made and the legs re-centered on Youroo's stabilizer jacks that I had in front of the axles. The standard strap leg braces like to bow when you put pressure on them. I made the pipe braces for the factory rear jacks, now I have them for the axle jacks. Just have to re-assemble them and re-install them. Then start making the shelf for my printer to fit under the window on the door side of the trailer.

Bought a small flat screen tv and mounting bracket for the BR. We so rarely watch tv in the BR, it's mostly about getting the bracket installed. The 8528 came with the "pre install" which includes the backing plate and the power/cable connections...shouldn't much to it.

DH is out there in the shop right now......

nope, you guessed wrong...!

He's out there building some new golf clubs for himself. /snork

OC, the poles aren't here yet, but "we" are gonna get 'em polished before install, even if "we" means I'm standin' behind him holdin' a stick of firewood over his head.

April 4th is gettin' closer by the day!

This winter has been absolutely brutal for me. I'm *seaux* ready for some away-from-everything time.

Don't waste the firewood, use one of the golf clubs he's making.

Got the leg braces finished and installed on Youroo's axle jacks. Ready to re-install on the trailer in a few minutes.

Looks great HONDAMAN, if I didn't have the bracket on the side, I would make one of these.

Got the axle stab jacks back on and MAN what a difference the pipe braces make. Can just about lift the front tires off the ground before it trips the 20A breaker. Lou Amadio/Gary Breeze, THANK YOU BOTH again!

Boy, you can say that again.
TOWTA would probably do mean things to me.

Instead off making a shelf under the door side window, I just cut 7-1/2" off the legs of TOWTA's rolling table she just had to have and no longer wanted. Works perfect for the printer.

Next projects are to install another 110v duplex outlet under the table, make & install the molding on the wall/cabinet to cover the cut out carpet and then make the shelf/toilet lid stop in the bathroom and that will conclude the updates on the 5er other than removing some stuff in the basement we never use and put in storage shed, like 2 collapsible chairs and an alum collapsible table.

Finally installed my awning braces today! Even though the weather is nice today the wind is still gusting a bit (thought I was going to lose some roof last night) and I had to work quickly. Only took about 5 minutes to install. I didn't bother hooking the tie down straps to it before stowing it (I know they work).

Opened the slides, hooked up power and turned on fireplace to take chill off while unpacking all the clean linens from storage bins, made the bed and watched TV and listened to radio while dreaming of warm weather 😍

I know, but these few things I can do at a leisurely pace. I really hit the awning poles hard for 8 days. Going to enjoy D&D Chassis being closed.
