Talk to Martin! He's overseeing my packing, and groaning, and fussing ... and doing the best he can with all my stuff. If all my stuff is packed on one side and all his on the other, Bella will fall over on one side. Guess which side! 😜

So, all is good on the Rainbow, and RVMs are....um....Improvising....Adapting and....Mutating. AIM. Hmmmm
Alert the temps!
New thingy for the RVM Lexicon: AIM.

Steve and Annie.....the term is "minimalism". But there is no quiz.
"AIM" for the Rainbow!

Sue and Martin, why must you pick sides? Sue, give Martin a bay or two on the port side? No rolling over!

Well... great question. It is one item not to skimp on.... think of the cost of the tires.

So there are different types and shapes. I purchased one from a Snap On Truck...spent too much like $125.00 it inflates and has a gauge. The part I wanted was the staight end and the tighter angle to get the outer dual valve stem on the rear duals.

I would look at a large auto parts store like Napa or a large truck stop.

Ah, no, not picking sides. Just keeping things together for ease of finding things. Maybe his tools will be heavy enough to balance my yarn? I'll have to keep the books in the center, though. 😙

Oh, minimalism ... Wish I could actually buy into that. You're right, of course, oh Grand Poobah. My AIM is often off in that respect. 😳

Sue - I found that I can pull the panel off the love seat bottom and have a nice bit of storage under there. And while we don't have walk around room with our bed, I got to looking and the space beneath the side "nightstands" is open. Nice bit of stuff space on both sides!

We are making stotage places where we didn't know spaces existed. Lol...

Yup, way to go! Martin is using the space under the couch. (I can't get the thing open anyway.)

Di - To be on the safe side - just send him over with the tools. We'll take some notes and go to Home Depot. When we're done, we'll come look at yours... lol...

POWERTANK - CO2 Air Systems
Yep...used it today.

Topped off the tires (PSI lower due to cold temps), pulled in all the water hoses and stinky slinky, ready to get an early breakfast, pull the power plug, hook up the car and start our trek towards Rockport Saturday morning.
