My wife uses a folding table for her laptop and such but couldn't get it close enough and she had to hunch over. Tried looking at some tables that slide underneath but the slide out mechanism is in the way.

Started looking at articulating trays that I could attach the back on the dinette bench. They were too expensive. Then looked at the old wall tube TV trays that where in use awhile ago. Had to invert it and make a slight mod but my wife loves it.

Wow! That is very cool. Does it lift off the bracket? I have never seen nor heard of these. where did you get it . . . and what other mods did you need to make? Looks like it has a lip along the inside . . .

Filled the FW tank, made another batch of ice, checked tire pressure, loaded up clean towels, evaluated replacement of bent link plates for WDH (ordering parts next month for an upgraded system to replace the bent plates), picked up groceries and stocked fridge and pantry.

It's getting close!!

Worked on my water heater leak today. Removed both the cold and hot PVC fittings from the back of the tank and cleaned up the threads. Glopped a good amount of Great White pipe thread sealant onto the threads and reattached the PVC fittings. Attached the water lines to the PVC fittings. Haven't turned the water to the heater back on yet. Waiting a bit for the sealant to set up. Will post back later as to whether the job was a success or a fail.

It was a success. No leaks at the water heater now. WooHoo!

Worst part of the job was when I disconnected the lower pipe connection. There was still quite a bit of water in the bottom of the WH tank, even though I drained all I could from the drain plug.

Because of something I mounted in the under-bunk storage area, it's gonna take a while to dry that area out completely. Overall, a good day.

Except for my trip to the orthopedic surgeon's office. I was late. Never saw the doctor, but talked to an assistant, who helped me plan out my next visit, so that was all good. But still, I had to buy a 6 pak on the way home. Need to chill.

And working on the WH made me have to twist around like a contortionist. My body is aching.

Here is the link to the item I bought at Walmart.

It has a lip on one side. You could pull the pin and lift the arm out of the bracket.

That's a nice mod that will come handy at night sitting on the sofa and there's plenty of room for my beer and a bowl of popcorn. 14x25 is just about right.
