Replaced the interior LED lights with some eBay models:

.. not quite as warm as the standard bulbs, but the "warm white" 36-1210 boards went in most of the interior fixtures, did 24-1210's in the bunks and a circular 24-5050 in the bathroom which is slightly brighter than the 36-1210.

36-1210: http://www.ebay.com/itm/320784783686
24-1210: http://www.ebay.com/itm/321118423982
24-5050: http://www.ebay.com/itm/321180112745

I ended up with 2 spare 36-1210 panels if one fails plus one adapter. I did find that the electrical contact wires on the 921 adapter for the 1210 are a bit touchy - might have to tweak these a bit after I drive around with them installed (I found bending the leads away from the plug body made a good connection). For the price which was around $50 shipped I replaced all of the interior lights plus the exterior bulb in my camper with LED's that run about .200 ma each vs 1.4 each with the original bulbs. An improvement of 7x reduced electrical usage for a similar level and quality of light compared to the basic 921 bulbs for $50 is a good upgrade in my book.

Finally installed the oxygenics shower head and the screen door bar to help the little man (3yr old) close the screen door when he comes in.

We made some cheap night shades. We used extendable curtain rods from walmart that were under $3 each that sit inside the valances under spring tension. Bought some cheap light brown bath towels to block out the sunlight. We used some fabric snaps to form the loop the rod to go thru, 4 snaps per shade. Easy on easy off. We can either pull the rods down or unsnap the towels when we don't want them up. It looks better than it sounds.

Got the daughter's to replace their camping clothes in the camper from our trip 2 weeks ago. Getting groceries for this weekend's trip to N. Kingston, RI for a short camping weekend. Going to try a shower curtain experiment. I hate how the corner shower curtain sticks like glue to me. I don't want to screw stuff permanently into the walls either. So I'm going to try a big command strip clothes hook on each side of the shower, placed horizontally, hook facing out from shower corner about mid height. Then I'm using a pool noodle and inserting the hooks into the hollow center of noodle like a bow to push the center of the curtain out. If it works OK, I'll post pics!

Replaced our plastic furnace floor vents with metal vents.

Most of the plastic vents were cracked and broken.

Today I washed the exterior, including the roof and the awning. Need to go up later and check the sealant.

Cleaned out and reorganized all the outside access storage compartments and their contents. Did a flush of black and grey tanks.
