You guys all made me nervous so I ordered a 50' 30 amp 10 guage extension cord. I think the one I was using is a 14 guage and it's a good 50' to the power. I also ordered a surge protector and lock box for the surge protector. It all arrived today and I got the power cord hooked up. Couldn't figure out the lock box (didn't try very hard as I really think I'm OK on that) so it and the surge protector are in the basement for now.

That's it, ordered them from ( FoamTiles.com ) and my tile is " Light Oak " 5/8" thick and $1.49 a sq. ft. And their 2'x2' and super easy to cut and install. You can order samples and if you do the cost is $1.45 a sq. on your order. My order was less than $140.00 . Free freight too

added PVC so I have one sewer outlet

While I am in my semi permanent spot I wanted a better sewer option also I wanted to be able to still use my regular hose if I am on the road or at a campground. I can easily detach this with in 10 seconds and if i really wanted attach it to my bumper on my RV and take it with me.

De-winterized. Sanitized water system. Found 2 valves leaking at the water heater bypass. Bought 3 new sharkbite valves and some pex line and plan on replacing those tomorrow. Installed new faucet for lavatory sink. Installed Maxair II vent cover. Now relaxing and enjoying a beer!

Added a Camco screen door handle. Installed my propane tanks for the season with a large cable and lock with the hope that I can leave them there all season now and not have them walk off. Also added some 1" R5 foam board insulation paneling to the rear cargo area to try to cut down on some of the heat that comes in the back.

Well we are back home now. The LED strip of lights I added a few weeks ago just lit up the front area perfect. I placed my lights at the awning rail instead of in the awning tube. That way they can be used even when the awning is in (retracted).

This weekend was a bit different. I ended up having to work a 1/2 day Saturday, So I took the camper to the CG Saturday morning before work, and set it up. I discovered the "lack" of lighting on the "off door side" made it more difficult to set up. So today I was rummaging thru the shed and discovered "1" old clear fog light left over from an old Mustang I used to own. I wired it up to the off door side of my camper, mounted the switch inside, the outside storage compartment. Now my world is lit up on both sides (when I desire lighting). PICS to follow soon.
