Finally got around to moving the Factory Installed Jenson to the Upper part of the cabinet. Makes a nice cubby now for remotes and whatever else finds its way into the new space. I still have to cover up the drill holes and tidy it up a bit more but it's the functionality I'm after over looks.

Thanks for the ideas folks.

I also put my JOF stickers on, photos posted in that thread and here are a couple of pics of the small mod I made to the factory installed TV mount. It would not tilt down so I bought a $15 clam shell mount, and mounted it to the existing mount. Works great now in terms of viewing the TV without straining the neck.

Starting to load up today. Leaving Wednesday for "Bluegrass On The Plains" in Auburn, Alabama. Ricky Skaggs performs on Friday evening so hopefully will be a good weekend. Looks like rain for the second half of the week but we really need it so we will roll with the flow. Taking the unit in Tuesday before we leave to have all 5 tow max tires pulled, inspected and rotated. Hitting 15,000 miles and two years old.

Just got back and unloaded from the first trip of the year. Bring on the camping season, it was greatly missed.

Sanitizing water system. Used water when camping recently without sanitizing... didn't die, but tasted terrible and made lousy coffee!

Ran furnace a while to burn off oil etc. Actually, the dealer must have done this already because virtually no odor/fumes.

Yesterday... Made new wood levelers. Old ones I had were too old and split in half.

Yesterday... Made stabilizer blocks. Jacks won't have to be extended as far and trailer should feel a bit more stable (wasn't bad before, just better now).

Cleaned off the old grease and grime from the entry door latch, wire brushed the rust off, and gave the latch assembly a new light coat of grease.

It was getting to the point where I had to slam it to get it latched, but now it closes really easy.

Also checked the door hinge screws (main door and screen door). A few were loose, so I spun 'em tight.

Well, just got all hooked up and loaded for trip out Wednesday. Going to haul to tire shop tomorrow to have all tires checked out(tomax)! Nuff said. Leaving tire shop and heading to Pilot to top off tanks while unit still attached. May go by scales and get weight all loaded up. Been wanting to do that.
Also, just placed Ad on Craigs list to unload my 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 Diesel. Going to upgrade to newer model. Anyone interested in a slightly used diesel that needs a bigger towing vehicle than half ton, look me up.
