Well, I found a project. I had and "episode" where my body turned and my legs didn't and I fell and smashed this wooden TV remote/do-hikky holder. It landed in the trashcan several time before I gave it one last shot at restoration. It's flat black now but will work as it did. It was a gift from the GF.

I'll let it dry overnight and see if I can smooth it out to look better with some Scotch Brite pads. It had many dowels that are now glue. To hard to line them all up hold it together at the same time. Took all of the afternoon.

I found a couple of projects for myself ...

Went up on the RV roof yesterday to shovel off snow that was nearly knee deep. I took care to easily dig out near the roof vents so that I didn't crack any.

While clearing off the bathroom roof vent (over the shower), I found that it was brittle and cracked with a hole about 5" x 2". Did I do it with the edge of the shovel? I don't think so, but either way it needs to be replaced.

I put some duct tape on it, covered the entire vent with a thick trash bag, had the DW open the vent, so I could tuck part of the bag into the vent so she could close the vent on it. Then stretched out the ends and weighed them down with some boards.

We got some snow in the overnight, so covering it up was important.

Today I headed over to Hemlock Hill RV - I'd never been there before. My brother and sister-in-law just traded in their TT on a new 5th wheel Toy Hauler there. They have a TON of towables and 5th wheels on the lot - all covered in snow, and not many motorized RV's in sight.

Their parts department is OK - not the worst I have seen from a product standpoint, but not the best - so far in my travels that goes to Arlington RV in RI - they have *everything*. I've seen some good Camping World parts stores too ... but I digress

They had a good stock of 5 different types of replacement vent covers in standard and unbreakable styles. For $30 I got a new Camco unbreakable cover. It's not as "sheer" as the ones we have on, so will likely let in less light. It's a pretty sturdy white cover.

So I'll be up on the roof again tomorrow - hopefully with no problems - installing the replacement vent cover.

If it's like mine, my bathroom vent is directly over the tub/shower. If it leaks or rains with it open, there is nothing to be harmed.

Good to hear from another 1311 owner, Gene.
