SmokerBill; If a ply TG floor squeaks on the joint between two sheets. Get medical syringe and fill it with watered down carpenters glue. Then under and angle poke it through the vinyl on the joint and squeeze some glue in this joint. Do this at as many places necessary. When the needle is removed you can hammer down the vinyl with a block of wood. Clean excessive glue with a rag.

I put in a bed lift and some awning light hangers. I also watched the race and pretended I was camping 😃

I worked on three projects today even though it was cold and rainy.

We recently had a baby daughter (born March 7th) so we had to add to our stick figure family. Normally my wife and I think these things are dumb but this one was a gift and I do kind of like it on the trailer. Problem was we threw the remaining stickers away when we were done with it last year. Then we got a second dog and had to buy another sheet. We figured that's it but we were smart enough to hold on to the rest of the sheet this time. Good thing since we ended up needing another girl.


I also added a larger handle for the older kids. Since there isn't much structure to screw into I made some wood blocks to attach to. I stained them with a color as close as I could find to the cabinetry in the trailer. It all turned out pretty good I think.




The last project I have no photos of but I had a piece of acrylic sheet cut to fit in the lower section of the screen door. I used the scrap pieces of acrylic to make some brackets and attached with stainless steel sheet metal screws. It will prevent my two year old from pressing on the screen and potentially falling out.

Good looking mods! I wish I had seen the screen door safety about 4 months ago. I created a different solution even though I had a great one right in front of my face! With a young child, we have those baby-proofing tools laying all over the place.

First trip out my at the time 1 year old son figured out the handle and fell out the door. The safety was my wife's idea.

Wasn't anything to figure out with my son, he just pushed it open. We were in the driveway and I was working under the sink. He climbed over my legs and leaned on the screen door and tumbled out. I was on him before he even knew what happened. He just got a scratch on his forehead, but when he started screaming, you can bet momma came runnin! He was fine, just startled. Next mod was a bar lock; not nearly as elegant as your solution, but it gets the job done and is easy to unlock from outside.

Working on insulating the underbelly with R12 (224 sqft.. No wonder the furnace eats propane, the duct work is just laying on the polyflex so the heat loss is enormous.
They used steel galvanized screws on the aluminum side caps and spacer sheet. Steel and aluminum doesn't work very well together so they are going to be replaced with SS machine screws. Another wire mess to clean up and fasten down. Electric Heat tape on the discharge of the gray and black tank. Also an extra outlet of the furnace between the tanks narrowed down to 3".
Soon it will be a true 4 seasonal unit.

Packed up and moved my TT. The wind is supposed to pick up tomorrow, and the trees around my camp were loaded with widowmakers. I noticed several freshly snapped-off branches on the ground when I parked the TT, so limbs fall a lot there. Better safe than sorry.

Don't have to worry about falling branches here at Walmart.

Took the steps off of our 33RLDS and had them welded. Also replaced 2 more rivets with bolts. Now the steps are really strong and don't wobble when stepping on them. Hopefully tomorrow will get to do some more waxing.
