You think?? Maybe?? I got the beast done today. It turns out that the kitchen plug is where they made the connection from the other side. I have the kitchen and the fridge on the same circuit, a 20 amp breaker. the computer on the same breaker as the entertainment center. The bathroom an the kitchen on the drivers side are on separate breakers. So i used one for the 12 volt converter. One other one for the A/C. one for the hot water heater. The water heater works on propane and can also work on 110v. I would say that it is pretty safe. Hope so.....
Next is back to work on the truck and toolboxes. Maybe Saturday but i cannot tomorrow. i have to be at the VA hospital for eye exams and glasses. I need to take the other Battery to the rv shop i use and that will be it for the cores. I had one with me the other day. Forgot to take the other one down with me. I don't know why but i am tired. More so than when i work on the truck. go figure... Later folks, i am going to take a nap till dinnertime. Catch you later, Dan

I should have done the same again today! Sleep and stay in bed!!! We went to a old place that we had gone to for several years now and tonight was the last time i will ever go again! Service sucked!!!
Everything works great so i guess it is fixed.
My DW is spinning me like a top and is in danger of giving me whiplash!!!! Now today we were talking about keeping the coach, Then she does a 180 and says unless i see a trailer i like..."I like"!!!!!! I guess i don't have a say and the thing about "just keeping the coach" yesterday....????

Now i have been bit...Whats next???? Lets not go there right now!!! Eek!!!
Later, Dan

Dan you and I must have done something in a previous life to be dealing with the "whiplash" Deb's LOL. Mine does it frequently. But at least she knows when enough is enough! 70 percent chance of rain and thunderstorms today here. High of 43 so no working outside for me today. At least my Deb will spend most of the day playing games on her computer and leave me alone. Reminds me of Jeff Dunham and Walter when he asks Walter if he believes in reincarnation, Walter said yes and he would come back as his wife and leave him the hell alone!

Sunny skies and 75 degrees!!
I worked on the top of my toolbox. It was really rough but i ground about 20 pounds and it needed a couple of skim cotes of putty. It needs a couple of minor fixes and i can prime and paint it. I am planning to paint the insides first and get that done and "jam" the edges where the lid meets the box. Let it sit for a week, and then i can go and do the outsides on both.
I am not sure but i am lacking energy. I don't think its iron but something. I don't want to eat to much as i did that over the holidays and have been having a harder time loosing it this time. I am at 212 but need to be at 190 or less. I was at 191 before the holidays started. Need to get back there. I have been hoping that the work would help me do that but need some kind of something to help me loose the weight and still give me the energy i need.
Anyway, with some luck i can paint the boxes by Monday. I have lots to do on the truck. Am starting to get the stuff for it to install the auto trans. Anyway, later, Dan

I am tired! Don't have much of any kind of energy at all. I did a little on the top of the lid. And only got about half done. I think i might need Liver or something. Maybe tomorrow I can get more done....

As much as I've been enjoying rebuilding and repairing this old Pace Arrow I have to wonder what the hell those guys were smoking when they assembled it. Small things like the wiper assembly for instance.

He!He! Mine is hydraulic!! it works off the power steering system!! Weird...
I didn't get any sleep last night and was up all day today. Came to find out that i took the wrong pills last night. I took this mornings pills and not last nights bedtime meds....Senior moment...
I did get the top finished. I was too tired to prime it. can do that tomorrow. I am also going to finish the other box and get both ready for paint. I am still planning on the pop rivets for the hinge. Will work on that tomorrow. Its almost done and i have everything but the seals for the doors. i can get that payday. i am going to start using it though. I don't think it will hit the cap. Anyway, It might be next week till i get it painted. We are starting to get wind. Its supposed to get stronger by the weekend and we will be heading back to the mid 50's for our high Sunday and Monday! Just fun!!!

Yeah i know...Its heading this way. They said that we could have a snow like Easter Sunday of 1999!! The wind and rain first.They are saying that we could have this for almost a week now. It could be Wednesday before this is over. I am using the last of the primer we have and cannot get anymore till next Thursday!! Seems i am not alone with the needs of primer. I think i can finish the lid on the one box and all will be primed. I am ot taking any chances with paint at this time. We were starting to get some of the winds and they can blow lots of sand and other junk around. As much as i want to get the boxes done..I don't want them to be rough sand finished! Anyway, That will be about all till this weather can move threw. A couple of shots of where i was until i ran out of primer. I hope the thinner will mix with the dried primer and give me enough for the top on the boxes. Shots below, Dan
