OK, it's not what I did to/in my camper today. About six weeks ago me made arrangements with our dealership to do some repairs while we were on vacation, so more then two weeks ago, we dropped it off, knowing that it would be done when we got home. I called them yesterday, to make sure that everything was done, and to tell them we would be picking it up on Thursday. So What did I do with my camper? I got very T-ed off because they haven't touched it, lets just say, they know I was not happy. This is the third RV that we have bought from them, and it is the last, since I can't be taken care of better then this.

Some dealers stink they are more worried about sales then repeat customers I have been lied to as well and won't use the same dealer, just not many Crusader dealers in my area so I have to drive like 2 hours

I loaded more stuff in for a short trip this weekend's maiden voyage. Found weatherstrip under slide is falling apart and the side wall metal between the refrigerator access panel and the back door is coming unstapled and has about a half inch bow in it. This is a BRAND NEW 2015 274DBH.

Going to go pick it up tomorrow morning after some warranty work missed on the pdi. Then I'm going to make some leveling ramps, wheel chocks, extend the hose holder for the drain hose to fit the one I bought, rig up a place to told the bars for the hitch and what ever else I can think of before our trip we're planning for Oct 3-5.

What did you do to your camper today?

Started working on installing the sewer hose storage that will accommodate the Rhinoflex. Had to remove the smaller fitted hose compartment from the front basement, assembled the guttering to fit in the 5" vinyl fence post and the angle brackets to attach the post to the inside of the OEM hatch on the side of the basement. While doing this I found a light in the basement area I didn't know I had.

Tomorrow, when the 'No Nails' has dried that attached the angle brackets to the vinyl post (aided by duct tape), I'll attach that to the inside of the hatch door using screws, no nails and duct tape and the support the back end of the post using some plumbers roll wrapped around the struts in the top of the basement ceiling.

If this all works I should have a 7' storage tube in the front basement capable of holding a full length of Rhinoflex hose, the fittings and a length of gutter I can use to support the hose when it is deployed. All accessible through the original sewer hose hatch.

Fingers crossed.

Put one extra turn on the torsion spring on the awning to take a little load off the motor retracting the awning.

I had to run a new trigger wires from the roof mount relay box down to the furnace. The wires are shorted together somewhere in the wall so what would happen is it would run the furnace constant unless I pulled the fuse. I think there is probably a staple through the wire somewhere making the connection shorting it out. It was tricky but I was able to totally conceal the new wires within the cabinets and ceiling without any major disassembly.
Feels good to have a functional thermostat again.

Sweet mod!

What did you do to your camper today?

Finished off installing the sewer pipe storage for the Rhinoflex, winterized her then off to the dealer for the counter top to be replaced, the valves sealing the grey and black tanks to be replaced and the crack in the shower floor sealed.

That's us done for the 2014 season, now time to start planning for next year. Oregon coast looks favorite for now, finishing up in Anancortes, WA for some whale watching at the end of August or start of September.
