Do they have to be removed? There is a space between the fascia and the slide seals I'll bet those lights fit in and don't have to be removed....? Or not.

Drop Leaf Table & Locks/Security

Bought a butcherblock kitchen table off craigslist for $20 and added this dropleaf to the side of the kitchen counter. The roll around basket fits conviently under it as another work surface but I will entertain any ideas for a leg from the far end to support whatever weight I'll place on it. The roll around will more often be used nearer the stove.

Thanks

Can you hear me? I'm screaming! I chose one but it did not post.

There are a number of ways to insert a photo in a post:
How to add photos to a post
Click Quick Reply and scroll down to bottom of text box.
Click Go Advanced, add text to message window and then scroll down.
Click Manage Attachments. A separate window will pop up.
Click Browse... then select the file to be uploaded. Be sure that the photo is appropriately sized. 620 x 620 pixels (or smaller) and no more than 100K. Forums software will automatically reduce the size, but smaller size photos will upload much faster. You may select several photos to upload at the same time by repeating the last step.
Click Upload. After pics have loaded, close the pop-up window.
Click Submit Reply to post the text of your message - photos will automatically appear at the bottom of your post.
You can also:
Click Post Reply or, if starting a new thread, click New Thread
Click on the paperclip symbol in the top row of the message box. A separate window will pop up.
Click Browse...then select the file to be uploaded. Be sure that the photo is appropriately sized. 620 x 620 pixels (or smaller) and no more than 100K. Forums software will automatically reduce the size, but smaller size photos will upload much faster. You may select several photos to upload at the same time by repeating the last step.
Click Upload. After pics have loaded, close the pop-up window.
Click Submit Reply (if you are replying) or Submit New Thread (if a new discussion) to post the text of your message - photos will automatically appear at the bottom of your post.
About attachment storage limits


When you upload a copy of an image file (or other attachment) it is stored on our servers. There are some restrictions on how much data can be stored.

Registered members are limited to 50 MB of attachment storage for items posted to threads and posts and 100 MB for files posted to the photo gallery. We highly recommend that you reduce file sizes before uploading them to posts and threads.

Contributing members have unlimited attachment storage for threads and posts. A contributing membership is an annual commitment. If a contributing membership reverts to a standard account, loaded images will still remain, but if you have exceeded the storage limits of a standard member account (50 MB), you may be unable to load more attachments. And remember ... all images loaded to posts (regardless of your membership status) must meet the size requirement above. If they are larger, they will fail to load.

How to embed an image stored on another site:
You can do this by using image tags. Upload the image to a service like imageshack and then copy the URL of the image and put that between [IMG] tags. That will work well, as long as the host site stays in business and doesn't disable your image for overuse of bandwidth etc.

You can also paste in the location of a photo stored here in a photo gallery.

To do this: Paste the url of the image from our photo gallery into your post. Then add the following code on either side of the url (with no extra spaces):

[IMG]url here[/IMG]

The image will appear where the url was in your text.

If you are trying to upload a photo from your computer .. this forum does not support that. You have provide a URL to the photo. Your images have to be hosted either on this forum, in the photos area, or by another service like picassa, photobucket, etc .. or from your own website.

We link all photos from our own website - Our RV Journey | RV Travels with our 2 Labradors - but that's just us -- we own/operate a web hosting/email services company so linking from our website is not a problem.

If you're looking for a GREAT place to host your personal travel blog, PM me and we can chat.

I'm sorry, 2Labs, that is completely incorrect. In either the Go Advanced or Paperclip options I previously mentioned, a manage attachments box will pop up. You browse your computer for a photo, click Upload & it will appear at the bottom of your post. As shown below.

On edit, I guess I need to make that photo a Mod, since that's the topic of this thread. Photo changed...

Ok so my bad ... never tried to use the attachments icon. So that explains why other users say they can only upload 4 photos at a time

In any case, here some photos of the snowstorm we had last week ... I cleared about 600' of driveway in 1.5 hours with our 28" Ariens snowthrower ... photos included as an attachment vs a link to a photo from our website.

BTW .. the car trailer and the pop-up in the 3rd photo are at about the 1/2 way point of our driveway -- and it's all downhill at that point

Maybe this can be considered a modification ... it's a modification to my RV's driveway after the last storm
