One of my fur kids has thumbs and was letting the not so bright, go running thru traffic fur kid out. I fixed it by using a lanyard that has a clip attached. I looped the lanyard thru the assist handle and then back thru it's loop. The clip that would normally hold the conference badge is just the right size to clip to the outside screen door latch. The screen will still open a few inches, but not enough to let 8 pound Lily sneak out.

Sena slides the panel open so she can go outside and up on top of the RV. Lily waits for Sena to let her out and cries when she can't.

I'll take photos tomorrow if anyone is interested.

I shoveled the snow off the roof the other day ... didn't post a photo, so here it is. This was after the 1st of 4 snowstorms in a week. The snow was about twice as deep when I got up and cleaned it off.

We have three switches in the galley in our teardrop, water pump, electric and gas for the water heater. The are however the same Radioshack switch and I thought it would be an idea to label them. I am removing a PWM solar controller (will not work with our high voltage solar panel) from inside and it leaves a big hole. I went to one of the local trophy makers and had them make up a 5X7 brass plate with the logo you see to the left and our names to cover the hole. I also had him make up 3/4" vector graphic icon plates with water drop electric lightening bolt and flame labels which I will attach with VHB tape. Unfortunately I will have to wait till I can get the doors open (snow) and the temperature rises enough for the tape to stick.
