    Put in a couple new bins with lids to make taking the camper down a lot easier! And, it worked! We're back home already and I'm working on laundry. It was too darn hot to stay at the cg any later ....

    I finally added an extra 110volt outlet in the area of the stove for DW. I used surface wiring too didn't have to try to fish wires though the walls.
    Checked water system, refrigerator, and LP gas system (good to go).
    Still have to repack the wheel bearings.

    My 85 Coleman Sequoia doesn't charge back to the battery (At least from what I can see). I don't have the money right now to upgrade the converter, but I did have a on board trickle charger laying around in the garage. So I mounted it under the dinette seat and punched another hole through the side. Now I have the option to charge while I'm camping with hookups and maintain the battery while storing my PUP in the garage.

    Today I worked on new slipcovers for the dinette benches, tomorrow, hemming curtains- almost done!! (The old upholstery is cute in a painfully '80's way, but it's rough and kinda h*ll on the legs if you're wearing shorts... You come away with a cute criss-cross pattern on your behind, though [LOL])

    I made a AC cover brace like the gizmos one. Not sure if it's going to work or not. I may have to spend the $20 and get the real one.
