Just got a project done last night. We have a pocket door to the bathroom. It is stored back in the pocket when traveling. The weight of the door bouncing when traveling pulled the screws out of the ceiling. The only way to get to those screws is to cut out the back wall of a cabinet. This was my 3rd attempt at a fix. The first two times I tried to do minimally invasive surgery. This time we did open heart. Cut out the whole back wall of that cabinet. Made a trip to the hardware store (mask on) and found the proper screws so the rollers can clear the screw heads. Drilled all new holes and added a few extra screws. Should be good for a few more years.

Stocked up on beef. Amazingly, stores are STILL out of TP, very low or limiting purchases. I don't understand that.

During the quiet time I sold my rig. Not sure if I'm going to keep RV'ing, might go for a class A with airbags if I do.

Last week I installed my RZR into the garage of my toy hauler. I then lubricated the hitch and hooked up the trailer to test for proper functioning. Next I rotated the tires and checked the brakes by driving 4.5 hours to an RV park in cooler temperatures. Over the next week my wife and I checked the various systems of the trailer. Refrigerator kept the food and beverages at the proper temperatures. Water heater worked as did the holding tanks. The slides and awnings were extended and found to function properly. The auto leveling worked as advertised. Our Directv antenna locked on to the necessary satellites. In short the toy hauler worked perfectly.

BTW we're in lockdown in AZ but it's not being enforced. We are free to exercise our civil rights without government interference.

Brought mine home Saturday.
Finished up my new center console install.
Installed new LED awning lights
Tilted my sleeper sofa back 1” so we aren’t sliding off of it anymore.
Inspected my roof and resealed a couple areas.
Installed my tablet/IPad holder on the dash for my dash command app.
Started my blue ray player install above the TV, I’ll finish that up this week
Still need to get my tool box installed. I got tired of lugging around a tool bag.
And hopefully during the week I can get my LED light strip mounted under the RV.
On my list is to install a couple power vents in my curb side storage bay to vent the heat from it in the summer. I have a fridge in there and between that and the heat from the power train the compartment gets very hot!

Long range mods are a remote awning kit and a hardwired surge protector.


Got my blue Ray player install finished up.

Got my tool box installed but not in the compartment I was hoping for.

However, being in IL we had reservations for a close by campground because my daughter is graduating this year. Well the graduation ceremony got cancelled and then IL campgrounds are closed through the end of May now. However I did some looking last night and I found a campground in MI about 3 hours away just north of Kalamazoo, got the very last 50A FHU site (the only sites) they had, So now I'm all set for Memorial Day weekend.

1. Install new awning and slideout cover material that arrived yesterday.

2. Install new scare lights on all 4 corners. Old ones have deteriorated badly.

3. Remove sod from 10 X 20 area under awning, put down landscape fabric, and small gravel stones for patio area. May build wood deck from pallets and planks sometime in future.

Nice. We did a little social distancing and exercised the gen for 30 minutes as recommended. We also cycled a few tanks of fuel through the CanAm just to be safe. 250 miles seemed to do the trick. Not bad for a weekend.

The wildflowers are amazing right now out in the Mojave Desert and it's been 5-10 degrees cooler out there than at home for the past few weekends.

Where do you like to ride in AZ?
