Removed a ceiling vent and replaced it with a Fantastic Fan and a Maxx-Air II rain cover. No more "stuffy camper in a rainstorm" :-)

Headed camping the first week in November.

Got the upper cabinet above the kitchen area framed in last weekend. Going to finish the job, panel the front wall below the cabover and put in the insulation sheet (3/5" foil faced polyisocyanurate) and 1/8" plywood overlay on the wing bottom where the kitchen is going so I can start running the hot and cold water lines and electrical circuits and not have a giant cold sink inside our cabinets.

Removed the standard 3-step flip out steps because, ahem, we continue to go places where we almost (ok, sometimes) drag the thing and bend it all. The super deep hanging box significantly reduces our departure angle.

After 2 in-the-field surgeries, we are coming up with a sleeker solution. I'll post when it is done.

I've seen a few of those and they look dangerous. Especially the ones with more than 3 steps.

My camper came with two 5-gallon LP tanks. My old camper had one 7-gallon tank so I have 3 horizontal LP tanks for my camper.

Today I added a T in the line and had the local LP dealer build me a hose so I now have the ability to draw propane from vertical tanks too.

I have 3 5-gallon vertical tanks so now I access to over 30-gallons of LP for extended boondocking.
All I need to do is build a box to haul the extras on my ATV trailer.

Turned the heat on a couple days ago, drained today, will winterize and clean tomorrow. Also gonna refill propane for the winter. It lives in my hangar, so whenever I work out there in the winter I'll hide in the camper from time to time to warm up.

Back in May I installed these mud flaps to the bumper of my camper.
Went camping and they helped a lot but there was still more rocks on my trailer than I cared for.

So I bought two more and installed them today.

I also re-caulked all the windows and seams.
