Secured a "covered" storage space after being in the open for the last month and a half. Good thing too, spring weather around Dallas is calling for hail next few days!!

Replaced the plastic Thetford toilet with a Dometic 310 porcelain toilet.
Installed a 24" television.

Why did you replace the Thetford, I'm on year 5 with no problems and the gasket is the original one.

I pulled the spark arrestor plug on my generator muffler and am running it under heavy load right now to clean the soot out. When the Onan manual says to use a 7/16" 8 point socket they aren't kidding. It is a 7/16" square head plug and a 6 point or 12 point socket will not work. Fortunately it is a brass plug and wasn't rusted into the muffler threads. I was able to get it out with a 7/16" open end wrench.

I am doing this over gravel since hot cinders on the ground or pine straw or leaves could ruin my whole day.

I liked the style and comfort of the Dometic.

Emptied all the storage compartments to air out, charging the house battery, took the old sidekick grill out to make room for the new Weber Q, ran to the parts store to get some cleaner and wax for the GH, pulled some stuff from the upstairs storage in the shed to go thru and put back in the GH, sorted thru the tool bags, ran the gen set for a couple hours just to see if it would start (was lazy during the winter) and DW loaded some inside stuff we had removed for the winter, made the bed up, and cleaned a bit also I believe. Still got a lot to do before the 1st trip the end of this month.

It really happened last night, so I hope it counts. We registered the TT. Afterwards, DH and I went out to dinner to celebrate and I had too many Heinikens(reason why I didn't post last night). We have 3 more weeks until we take possesion and the waiting is unbearable.

Smile Increased road clearance.

I raised the drain pipe on the fresh water tank and the propane outlet used for the gas grill on our Melbourne. I think now there is a lesser chance of bottoming them out on rough roads.
