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.
Nice!

We bought the Rand McNally RV GPS - waiting for the end of the Canada Post strike so we can actually receive it.

We also recently bought the TST TPMS and installed it this weekend. Hubby found our valve stems a little difficult and isn't thrilled that you must remove them to add air, but we shall see.

We also recently bought the Drain Master Polychute hose thingie. Works great.

We also added some folding camping chairs (director-style) from Costco - hubby made some rolling-eyes motion because our chair collection is growing ever large, but we both like them a lot and at 21 bucks or so they were a great buy.

Our next big purchase is a towing system for our Ram 1500 for next spring. Still figuring out our options and what to go with. Oh, and saving up!

* Fantastic Fan installed
* 30 amp Surge Protector
* 4 ft water hose for extra rinsing out the sewer hose
* Patio mat (Different size)

Pending:
Fridge door panel - ended up with small hole when door came open while driving. Hole is smaller than the size of a dime. Surprised that a rubber bumper on a door knob could do that damage.

Seems like I always have something to do.
Wow, you weren't kidding about that MP3 thing ! We plug in our iPod into the front USB port, and whammo ! Endless great tunes in places with little to no radio reception !

Weeee don neeeed no stinkin satellite radio or CDs !

Might have to upgrade the front speakers to fully appreciate this remarkable (and inexpensive !) SONY....
