    Bought Save A Jack online from company. This will enable me to remove front scissor jacks while towing which dragged when leaving home or entering gas stations.

    Drilled and tapped a hole on the side of my receiver. Rattle gone.

    Bought it.
    Installed dorm fridge in cabinet area butchered by previous owner.
    Replaced furnace thermostat.
    Stitched up a leaky seam and some tears around the windows.
    A real good cleaning and inspection still in process.

    We have it camping on the last trip of the year. I'm trying to make a list of things to add or repair before next season, though seem to have forgotten a couple we had mentioned before I got the list out.

    Not directly for the pup, but bought a new cooler yesterday (found a super insulated Canyon Cooler in Flagstaff when we were there Labor Day and had been debating the purchase, since our 12 year old Coleman is beginning to wear out) and switched it out this morning. Makes for a tight fit in the cargo area of the TV, so I may be trying to find new kitchen/food boxes for next year. We'd measured things before deciding to buy the Canyon Cooler, reality is just a bit more snug than we'd pictured.

    Never used my outside shower, today I replaced it with my old sink faucet. I tapped the outlet hole to screw in a garden hose adapter. Now I can just screw on a hose and do more things with it.

    Nice!!! I have a Y fitting that goes on the end of my city water pressure regulator so I can run a hose off the Y connector to rinse kayaks and things. but that a good idea cause now you can use your on board water tank.

    Similar to how the Evolution campers are from Fleetwood, you should put a quick-connect end on that hose, and then get one of the coiled hoses. I did that on a previous camper I had, but off of the low-point drain. Very handy if you need it, especially if you never use your outside shower faucet. Nice mod! [MOD]

    Started winterizing pup. Now my girlfriend and I are going to friends cabin in central Wisconsin for the weekend. Need to open back up and grab dutch oven and a few things. This friend got me into using cast iron cookware. He's never used a dutch oven,so I'm taking mine and cooking breakfast. He's wanted one,and after this weekend, I know he'll be buying one.

    We are packed up and ready to brave this cold snap in the weather for this weekends Halloween weekend at Little Red Barn campground here in PA. Then I'll drive it to my MIL place where I just made a parking pad for it last weekend. That ends the season then for us. Boo! :(

    Since our last camping trip was 2 weekends ago, and she is now in hibernation, I am simply missing her. It's difficult for me to get my head around the fact that there will be no camping for 7 months.
