I tell hubby what i want and he makes the magic happen. We actually have 3 cats, i donít think well bring any with us. It may be a little nerve wrecking for them. This one is the one that explores the most. But weíve introduced all three to the trailer. Two of the three slept out there last night, with us.

Where did you get the little door pull for the screen door? Great idea. Also like your fridge thermos, where did you pick those up? Thanks! Great job on the mods and fixing things, shame that they don't take more pride/time in building these things.

We still got more to do, but slowing down a bit. Mainly waiting for things to come in...

Encountered an issue our inverter generator is DOA. Furman still hasnít shipped. We have A trip right before Memorial Day, boon docking and no generator. Iím beyond pissed. So we have the 100 w solar power, a single 12 v battery and 2 propane tanks. Sigh, letís see how this plays out.

Thanks! For the screen door I was looking for the little pull you installed on the slider portion of the screen door. I installed that camco crossbar last season and its great!

Highly suggest you do the same. Was a horrid draft and wanted to do something about it. Made a huge difference. (This was from a couple days ago.) Today time to sanitize the water tank - hot and cold.

Battery is in the works, trying to fix the doa generator is also on the list. But gotta wait for everything...

So carb is being replaced on the generator. It sputters and sometimes wont start without opening the gas tray.

Firman gave us a generator cover for the inconvenience and we got new pull cord, jumper cables and funnel. So now a waiting game.

Dropped the trailer off for the awning bezel to get replaced and the back of the dinette to be fixed. Wouldnít be done in time. So those parts are on order too.

In the meanwhile we added Click image for larger version

ID:	229125 drilled holes at bottom. Decided against the little feet. Fastened the caps with zip ties, so they donít get lost. Good news is the wire from the battery disconnect is long enough that we donít need to rewire.

ID:	229252 Added a glove holder so if we need to take care of the black tank we have gloves easily accessible. Decided to have the sewer hoses in that bin there. Could put it in the bumper Iíve heard, its a rhino hose so angle makes me question. But could get wet, dirty and possibly rusty. So keep it all contained there.Click image for larger version

ID:	229954 First trip with it! My cousins land, 6 hrs away. Got there safely with about 3-4 hrs sleep. I was so nervous about possible issues.

While out here, we found a place to fill up water. (Only well water, no electricity, and the septic is a outhouse.) We will glamp it for a day to freshen up - empty septic, shower for more then a few minutes, and have electric.

Big purchase while we were out, doggie pads for the bottom of the septic bin.
