Yeah, I would say those dimmable LEDs would be a tough find for a direct, plug & play replacement.

I'm almost done with my LED conversion. I have about 4 or 5 more fixtures to do...

Planning to stay home for the holiday weekend, but going to pick up the trailer from storage next week for an outing!

No camping for us this weekend. We now have a puppy, so we are prepping the trailer for her. Picked up a carrier crate and found a location for use. Also picked up food & water bowls and a leash specific for the camper. the majority of the campgrounds around here do not allow the retractable leashes, so we have a 6 footer hanging in the trailer now.

This being the first of the month I: switched my Norcold to propane, water heater to propane, and ran the Onan for 1 hour with two a/c's running. I do this every month without fail. The Norcold and water heater will be switched back to electric tomorrow morning. Then the fun started.

I noticed last evening just before dark there was a nest of some kind being built on top of my big slide under the cover. It was dark by the time I saw it (from the bedroom window which is high enough to see all the way down the slide). While the generator was running I go a ladder got a good look. It was obviously a large nest under construction using tree leaves still attached to 6-8" pieces of branch. Obviously not a bird. I did have a tree branch that was rather close to the rear ladder. Sooooooo, Gas powered tree limb trimmer and the offending branch is gone. 8' ladder and a Gas powered leaf blower. Up the ladder I went from the rear since the nest is on the front and what did I see? The squirrel was on the nest rustling around organizing. Insert nozzle of leaf blower between the slide roof and the awning and squeezed the trigger at the same time and 150 mph air heads down the top of the slide. The nest material, approx 1/2 bushel, and the squirrel went out the other end. I looked around the side of the slide just in time to see the squirrel disappear into the woods.

I feel much better now and all monthly maintenance is done.

Ordered pin and clip kit for our Equalizer hitch bars from Amazon. I want to have them on hand as spares. Also ordered dog treats.

Backed it out of the shed and over by the house to wash and load up. Leaving Thursday for 2 weeks in W. North Carolina mountains.

Can't wait to get somewhere cooler.
