I keep the shotgun with me when crossing in to Canada I leave a .45 cal in Alaska and pick up the .40 cal in the lower 48.

The shotgun permit in Canada is $25.00 and is good for 2 months.

I've never had the Canadians search the MH but still would not violate their laws. I find life is so much simpler when you play by the rules.

Replaced all 5 front clip lights. There were all cracked and broken on the top edge. Came that way from PO.

I am doing over-dash cabinet rework (old tv hole) and found moisture on fibergalss above windshield. Turns out the clip lights were filling with water during hard or long rain. Water pressure would force water through back of lights, by way of the bulb sockets, through the factory holes in the fiberglass for the clip lights. All 5 old ones still had water in them when I removed them - no rain for over 2 weeks.

New clip lights with new seals and screws. No leaks during the last 3-day rain.

All is good.

Had to go to the dealer and meet with the police about some one breaking into my coach while it is there for repairs. They didn't get into mine but they did mess up the door now got to get in touch with the insurance company and go through all that stuff. Could have been worse there are several travel. Trailers and fifth wheels that they did get into and they took all the electronics out of them

2. Took out round dine table and replaced with a T shaped, fold down cherry table. More table room when up and more floor space when down.

3. Added fold up/down maple cutting board that's big (16x36 inch).

4. Added 2 110 vac outlets. It had pathetically few.

5. Added BR ceiling fan. Dash CB radio.

Oh well, there ya go.

Would you be able to post pictures of BR ceiling fan. We have been thinking of looking into this. Was your unit set up for it?

Thanks

Just installed "Reflextix" insulation on the windshield. It is 5/16" foam with foil on both sides. It comes in a roll and is flexible. Got a 4' x 25' roll for $39.95 at Lowes.

10' long piece cut to 45 1/2" tall, a tight fit, slid it along the inside of the windshield all the way across and around the corners. Holds itself in place. Cut a 48"x48" piece for the drivers window and used the cut off strip from the windshield as a wedge to hold the bottom in place. Added 26" x 48" pieces to one of the slide windows and a bedroom window. (single pain windows)

It is cold here right now, 28 degrees, and I could tell the difference immediately.

Also started on a supplimental heat setup. Tapping into the propane furnace plenum (4" duct hole) to force some heat from an electric space heater. If it works out, I will have under $20 dollars in it, not counting the space heater that I already had. If not, I put the plug back in and move on.

Will post results after I finish.

So did I! In fact just wrote a post about the whole process yesterday.

The insulation definitely makes a difference! Felt it the very first night.

Here are the new tv's and home theater system. 37" in the front and a 32" in the back. Kids loved the PS3 on the 32" instead of the old 19".

installed a reel (hand crank) for the air hose. Had the hose connected to the DP compressor, but the hose was just coiled in the front bay where the outlet was (messey). Ran a secondary hose to the rear (empty) storage space that is too small for much of anything else. Now the reel holds the hose and enough room left there for the guage and inflator. My set-up seems less complicated than a previous post on tire inflation. outlet...hose..reel...guage (shows pressure comming) inflator with guage and air release button all in one. Inflator w/guage and button from Lowes.

Shimed the hinges on the main door so it will close correctly, without slamming it. Rebuilt and adjusted the screen door latch so it stays latched to the main door.
Disassembled and resealed the shower sliding door assembly.

Vacuumed - does that count?

we did the refletix stuff a while back and dw made fabric covers for them, they roll up when we travel and are held in place with snaps across the top when deploy them
she used deer print on the road side and warm tropical fish for the inside
sort of brightens up a cold winter day.
we also made some for the side windows and door
some are bears and some are fish and some are owls
they help allot in summer to, as the front windshield roll down screens do nothing for the suns heat.

I have used this insulation for several years. It also does a great job keeping the summertime sun out. However, I have been told that it promotes fogging on dual pane windows. Is this an Urban Legend, or truth? I had our driver and passenger side dual windows rebuilt, and have stopped using the reflective material on these.

I replaced the old bedroom TV with a new HD 27" Samsung. I made a frame that I could mount the TV to that could open and installed a shelf. DW is happy with extra storage. I used a Piano hinge and 2 heavy duty latches from CW. I am still trying to match the stain that Monaco used.
