A couple of sheets of 1/4" oak plywood, a sheet of 1/8 ditto, a bunch of 3/4" quarter-rounf molding and assoerted fasteners to build a new set of cabinets to replace those damaged by a water leak in the dining room slide-out.

I was gob-smacked (the Brits say) when I saw how Forest River had attached these cabinets. There are two of them, total length about 11 ' 6" and they're "attached" to the slide out ceiling. Inside the ceiling there are three 1" square steel tubes, one along the inside edge and two together about 2/3 the way across to the outside. The space between the tubes is insulated with rigid styrofoam insulation. The whole thing is covered by 1/8" lauan "door-skin" plywood.

These long, relatively heavy cabinets were attached to the lauan plywood with 1/2" woodscrews. They had no tie in to the steel tubes. When I took them down, only about four of the 30 or so screws were still holding to the plywood. It's a minor miracle that the cabinet assembly didn't come crashing down under on-the-road loading.

My replacements will be firmly anchored to the steel tubes. I will only be using the fascia frames and doors in the rebuild. Everything else, including the wood that supports the bulb seal for when the slide is deployed, will be in new wood.

I'm surprised that, as I interpret the construction, Georgetown builds the cabinets inside the rig, rather than installing pre-assembled cabinets.

I bought stabilizer bar bushings for the front axle on my Frieghtliner chassis. Installed them last night after work. Knocked my head got a good gash, DW doctored me up and said she thought I needed a stitch or two but I told her to patch me up I had work to do. The bushings are in, DW said her patch job looked really good when she changed the bandage. We did get a good laugh when she said that it might leave a scar but it was in the hair line, I said what hair line.

"The Ultimate Sewage Kit"....after a split hose allowed for a "turd geyser" incident recently at the dump station. Yes, yes, I was a good Kamper and left the dump station cleaner than I found it.

Just ordered a new "Rand McNally Trip Maker RVND 5510" GPS. I took advantage of the $50 savings, offered to all FMCA members. That brought the price from $350, to just over $300, including sales tax. Also saved on shipping, as there was no charge, unless you requested special shipping. Looking forward to using the GPS on my next trip, to the iRV2 Ralley, coming up in September.

Couldn't resist the bell and whistle to add to my OTA antenna. Bought a Winegard Sensar Pro signal strength meter & amp. Getting tired of tuning programming the TV and then wondering if I missed a bunch of channels b/c the antenna wasn't pointed the right direction.

Bought the same thing right before the telescoping ladder

It does help but the whole system of having to know where to point the antenna before you can scan for channels is SO messed up.

dons2346 . . . got you beat on the money list. Let's see:
  • New slide rebuild from the metal up
  • Replaced 3M tape
  • Recarpeted due to black mold
  • PTO recall (not free . . . Country Coach)
  • Winegard Satellite
  • 6 out of 8 new tires
  • Had over 1/2 the windows taken apart, cleaned, and reinstalled
  • All new rubber and seals on all slides
  • Replaced archaic VHS player in front with Blu Ray, replaced back DVD with Blu Ray
  • I'm sure there's more but I think I blocked it from my memory.
We win. But this was not a contest I wanted to win!! How about the winning lottery ticket to pay for it all??!
