A battery powered water detector for the shower floor.
Great idea !!!

Do they have something similar to warn me when the DW is about to yell at me?

Basic TV mount

Found this yesterday. Great sale price.

When parked, I put the TV on the engine hump. On the road, I want to hang it on the wall. In the bedroom, I can deal with a flat mount, no swivel. This mount has a tilt feature. With multiple mounts, I can swap TVs or locations.

Bought a Champion 3100W inverter/generator

I must have air conditioning when trailer camping in the summer.
Overnighting at rest areas or campsites without electric hook-up is not good when the temperature is over 80 degrees.

I researched portable generators and found the Champion 3100W that will run my 13.5K btu air conditioner (but not much else).

It fits nicely in the corner of the bed of my pickup truck.
When camping, it is far enough away that the noise of the air conditioner blocks out the sound of the generator.

It's inaugural tryout was for overnight trailer camping at Twin Dike Park on Sam Rayburn Reservoir (Corps of Engineers campground). I had one of the 21 campsites that has no hook-ups. The generator worked great!

A 3' x 6' sheet of 1/4" thick cork. The rest of the Ballroom mirror look is about to be history. I already removed the mirror and turning the area into a cork board wall for photos and momento's.

A drain replacement for the shower. Discovered a leak under the shower pan into the compartment. A previous owner had "fixed" the leak with RTV in the "P" trap connections and something finally broke loose. Took to a shop and they replaced the shower drain, the "P" trap and some bit of drain line. After sealing it up they insulated under the shower, (top of the compartment) and covered the opening it with a sheet-metal cover. They did a better job than I would have for sure.

41' Dicor White EDPM Roof Kit:
41'x9'-6 white on black 45 mil EPDM
2 gallons of Dicor glue
4 rolls of butyle tape
10 tubes of Dicor 502 Self Level sealant

All on Amazon for $650 with FREE shipping.

Bought our Overland 2 years ago. New it would need a new roof in near future. I have caulked and taped a few spots over the last 2 years. A couple of spongey spots, too. Will need a couple of pieces of Luan to replace bad pieces.

Caught this deal and snatched it up. Over $400 less than I have have found the materials for anywhere else, local or on-line.

Now for a dry weekend!
