Been pretty busy last two weeks. However, today I checked all systems on the new 20MRB to start a Punch List for the dealer. Well, dang! So far, everything works as it should!

Putzing with the television and integrated DVD/AM/FM etc. Noticed that watching standard broadcast, the sound does not go through the ceiling speakers. DVD playing and the sound is through the ceiling speakers.

Jensen TV speakers sound tinnier than a 1960s Japanese transistor radio.

Oh well, two audio cables and one removal of the player should fix it!

(Happy that's all I have to complain about!)

Replaced another string in one of my day/night blinds. It gets pretty easy after doing it so many times. I've switched to using Mason's string instead of trying to find the "right" kind of blind cord. Works well. At least, good enough for me.

Sanitized and flushed the Fresh Water system (yesterday). Turned on the heat at 5 AM as the temperature dropped below freezing. Will finish packing it up this morning and leave this afternoon for a weekend of camping.

Changed the oil in genset and engine in prep for a trip to Texas. Eliminated unnecessary weight restowed gear for convenience. Nice being retired!

Found all tires to be 15 psi lower than recommended. Brought them up to pressure. Hope to increase mileage. Evicted a family or wasps from the water heater access.

Can't wait to get going next week.

Hey Jeremy, Sorry I just saw your post now.

So when I bought my X20E, it came with the TV Mount installed on the shelf above the fridge. The mount is secured to the base. The mount itself swings from left to right but it does not tilt down. That's a problem for watching tv because the viewing angle is not great and with these flat screens, it's important to have a good viewing angle. It was also hard on our necks because we had to look up and almost stretch to see the TV in terms of picture quality.

So I went out to a local store called the Source (Radio Shack) and bought the mount shown in the following image. I removed the TV off existing mount, Used a couple of self Tapping screws to attach back part of the mount to the existing mount, then attached the front part to the TV and put it all back together. So now I have the ability to TILT the TV up/down +5degree <-> -15 Degrees down as well as keeping the original ability to swing left to right. It is now much more comfortable to view the TV with straining necks/backs eyes.

I haven't done anything to my Jayco, yet. I'm kinda waiting for the weather to clear more than 1 day at a time to do some mods. I've purchased a few new items for it that I can't do it in one day. I'm not as fast as I used to be. Here's a few items I've bought.
Lend a Hand grab handle for the front door,
Wingman antenna booster,
vent cover for the bathroom vent,
and a Tornado black tank flush.
That's enough to get me started. LOL!

Drove home today from 8 days in Waynesville, NC. We left a few days early cause it was forecast-ed to rain this weekend there. Well we are home and it's raining here too.

Troubleshooting a flaky problem with my fridge. It shuts off when on gas, I am sure it is a bad push on connection and will find it tomorrow.

Sanitized and flushed the system on the GH yesterday, checked the psi in the tires, dug some more stuff out of the various hiding places in preparation of 1st trip of the year the end of April. Also scrubbed the roof and got it done for the summer (I hope). Today I washed the GH in preparation of waxing the monster this weekend if the weather will cooperate with me.
