just replaced all interior lighting with LED lighting, it was a little costly but a saving on the battery during dry camping.

Added two more doors to above-dining storage compartments. Stuff kept getting hidden behind the two wooden panels, so I popped them out, called Rockwood for 2 new doors and hardware, and installed so I can now access from any of the 5 spaces. Found all kinds of lost stuff back there that we could not see behind the worthless panels.

Before and After pictures attached.

Scott: That is why I love this site. You took a negative and turned it into a positive. Not a major deal, but a very good improvement.

This has been bothering me since we bought the trailer back in May. I called Rockwood and they sent me all the parts, not assembled, so I could have used the doors for any area. It was a touch expensive, like $100 for the two doors (assembled with glass installed), and all the hardware, hinges, etc, but it makes a WORLD of difference for how much stuff we can get stored up there now.

Thanks for the kudos!

Now, why are you assuming it is Scott, and not Anna doing the work? Actually, she helped quite a bit. The dog did not. She just got in the way.

Because everyone thinks their life is the same as the other persons. In my world, it is my wife's job to think up the work and my job to do it.

Similar here, except I think of the work that needs to be done, tell her, then hear about it over and over until I get it done!

Did I just post that onto the internet???

gatraveller and scottandanna - Similar situation except, I think up what NEEDs to be done, Peggy thinks up what she WANTs to be done. Rarely are those two things the same, but the result is: I wind up doing them. The dog's role is the same in either case; he gets in the way (103 lbs of lab/pit mix; luckily the diet is working and he's down from 110 lbs).

Bought a new Blue Ox Aventa tow bar to replace my old Aladdin. It came with the 10k coiled safety cables. A lot more substantial than the 5k ones I have been using.
