Better pantry!

At Lowe's we found a 3 shelf pullout pantry set-up. The skinny cage pullout that was in the Georgetown was not even half as wide as the cabinet where Forest River had installed it. We now have full width shelving with easy access. DH installed it today! Nice!

It never happened if there are no pictures? Kidding but it would be great to see what your DH did.

LOL! DH has closed up the rig for the night. I'll be sure to get a picture tomorrow. I asked him if he took a pic before he started, no. :(

There's still more space at the top as this buy from Lowe's was for a standard height cabinet. I'm thinking about putting in some hooks at the top - one thing I could hang is the grocery bag sack. Maybe hang pans if we can figure out how to keep them stationary while traveling. Just thinking out loud on the keyboard!

6 tubes of Dicor to apply over a few cracks in seals around skylight, vents and cable entries (some proactive maintenance) plus a grill for pans for our Roadtrip.

I bought W H O A to help with the go.

AKA

4 Sets of brake pads, 4 routers turned and 2 new Front Calipers,
2 rear axle grease seals, repacked the front wheel bearings,
and added braided stainless valve stem extenders to the duals.

Systems checked and setup by local Truck shop that opened in 1977.

I now need a new sign:

Tailgaters Beware.
I stop quicker than YOU.

Interesting conversation about the brake systems on the E450
chassis. Same exact system that works to stop 24 ft as works to
stop the longest and heaviest on the same frame. No difference
in components.

About those crossfires... Is that a system that links the two tires into one fill valve? I'm curious because if so, I wonder why you chose to do that?? It seems to introduce some additional risk to me, so I'm curious why folks decide to go with this kind of a setup? (Or maybe I have no idea what the crossfire really is?)

The technology that crossfire uses prevents loss of air in both tires should one tire loose pressure. I think the cutoff is around 15psi. So if you did have air loss in one tire the other tire would only lose 10 or so pounds.

ahh. Makes sense. And I guess the attraction is a perfect match in psi for both tires. I do wonder what effect I'm imposing on my tires when one of the dual is a couple psi diff than its mate.

I just realized that I will never be at "the last thing I bought for my RV". I'm always buying something for my RV. Lol!

I know what you mean.

It's more like "What was the last thing I bought in the last minute for my RV"?

Well the intention I believe is the honey done list not the honey do list.
Indoor out door thermometer (wireless) that the out door I mounted on the junction box for the electric on the hitch. That way I have to see it when I hook up. Maybe I will not forget to bring it in that way.

In the first month of owning it my dealer sold to me:

A new step cover air actuator.
A new A/C thermostatic control valve.
Two new rear brake hoses.

And a Partridge in a Pear Tree!

The Partridge is a nice touch. So few dealers offer that anymore
