Worked on sealing holes from mice. Had a mouse about a month ago, caught it in a old fashioned mouse trap. Afterwards I sealed all of the openings I could contort my body into with HVAC aluminum foil tape - no mouse for weeks. Today, as I was getting the TT ready for a trip tomorrow I found the peanut butter on a a trap I left (just in case) had been eaten and a roll of paper towels was mangled. I went in search of other openings I had missed and sealed everything I possibly could with the aluminum foil tape. Hoping to catch the little rodent in the trap tonight and that openings are sealed.

As I opened panels, compartments, etc. I find that the craftsmanship behind the scenes is terrible. If all TT are left open around drain pipes, water pipes, etc. like mine is, it is a wonder this forum is not filled daily with people having mice problems.

Just a note. I used dryer sheets, peppermint oil and Fresh Cab in my TT and the mice still came. Frustrating but I am gonna win this.

Dewinterized and sanitized it for the first time. Not as difficult as it thought. Installed TV bracket and 24 in TV. Also not as hard I was making out to be.

Added a key rack and paper towel holder. I hung the rack high to make the cubby a little hiding place also. We've had the trailer one year now and still finding little things to make things easier.

Made another 2 batches of ice; the ice tub is gettin' full! Filled the FW tank (well, not full, but we like to have some water in there for "incidentals", 'bout half full)

Tonight DW grocery shops, and I top off the fuel in the truck and get her all hitched up and ready to go!

Wow, there sure is a whole load of spaghetti wires in there. Jayco does little to no wire management....maybe a few pieces of electrical tape is all. I cleaned it up some but ran out of plastic ties. Still not sure where to mount the remote,
And the really cool part is that it actually works! Am I now an electrician or what? NOT.
I thought the same thing when I removed my power panel to install mine. I also had to clean up some of the connections at the bus bar that were barely hanging on or had too much wire stripped back.

I just did something stupid. I thought it would be a good idea to put my box fan in front of the bedroom egress window. Got it set up and the window opening lever slipped and rammed through my box fan. It broke one of the fan blades and broke off most of the red plastic latch on the window lever end.

JB Weld to the rescue -- AGAIN!
