The wife just bought me a 99 cent pilsner glass at Renys. I'm already enjoying it! ;-)

A new engine and a 99 cent pilsner glass. Now there is both ends of the spectrum.

A battery waterer...Got this last week but wanted to wait until I had used it to post...Works great; my batteries had offset cells and I couldn't use my old quickfill.

We just bought a "honey wagon" for our state parks and corps of engineer parks that don't have full hook up services. The kit did not include an elbow for ease of transfer of the "honey", so technically, that was the last thing I bought for our RV.

I finally got time this weekend to upgrade the entry to our coach. I went to Lowes and found a mosiac tile that is open stock (that DW liked ) so I could purchase what I needed and if I got too much return any excess or purchase additional if I calculated wrong (I would rather have too much and return it than run out in the middle of the job ). I bought 15 square feet and ended up with 2 square feet I will return and 2 square feet that are pieces so I will keep them as spares in case I need them.

The mosiac tile comes glued to a mesh and to keep from having too many joints that lined up I cut a few pieces out of the full tiles out so that I could interlock them (no aligned joints ).

Here is the entry when I began.

I removed the rubber treads, it was 90+ in Charlotte this mweekend and they just pulled off real easily leaving me with this.

Since the entry is a steel box I cleaned up all the surfaces and applied construction adhesive figuring it will allow a little more flexing than normal thin set. I also decided to leave the plywood thus giving a little cushion on the main wearing surface.

Here is the final result.

I also added a light to the entry (also open stock) it is a 12V deck light that I tied in with the outside light.
