    Well it finally reach 70 degrees here in Vermont. Opened the PU today to see how the mods I've been working on fit. We sewed up some mattress covers out of quilted material. I also finished the PVC shelf unit for the back of the galley and we sewed some net pouches for holding items on the shelf unit and in the bunks. You can check out the Mods in our webshot site.

    I also removed the plate on the crank mechanism and greased the threaded rod and put some silicone spray on the pulleys. Just have to do the bearings, flush the water system and check the electrical, get it inspected and we are ready to roll.

    I'm chomping at the bit to get going. TV needs a bit of work as well which will go into the shop next week

    John,

    Those guys from Down South are brutal. This has been the wettest, coldest summer I can remember.

    Hope you are doing ok and stocked up on plenty of wood.

    I was thinking the S--- word, but I wouldn't say it. [:D]

    Hi Everyone,

    I haven't been on the portal for a long time. I hate to say it but I don't like the new format of the site so i don't use it much and I've been really busy this summer. We have managed to camp alot on our property in No. Vermont. We camp dispite the weather. We just try to make sure we have time to dry out and pack up.

    The round gauge in my camper is an amp meter next to the square volt meter.
