I have a rather sizable 12v CPU fan from I pulled from an old PC I will put in behind my fridge mounted to the vent on the side of the van to help it out. A simple power switch accessible from under the sink in the cabinet will allow me to turn it on and off at will.

Building a desk for the MH. Thats my Birthday present. Ordered new timing chain set, New flat screen tv. Moving the entertainment system to the curb side as when on the road i like my head up..not down. Updating this computer so i can put windows 7 in it. Also a flat screen monitor for it too. Working on wiring that the mice got into. New battery for the coach engine. Lots of work for me.

New Lighting

Because we like to use state parks that do not have RV hookups, we changed all our interior incandescent lighting to LEDs and have the best lighting we have ever had and no longer will need to habe a portable generator for lighting. We are very pleased with the change. We have had solar cells on roof for over 18 years that have been very faithfull in recharging our batteries, but our lighting was always consuming too much battery power. We just used the new LED fixtures and installed them ourselves.
Although the change cost a few hundred dollars, it is worth the change for us and will extend our 26' Sunline Solaris TT for a few more years.

In the last month I've had both rear slide seals replaced and the front drive chain for the front hydraulic slide replaced. That was a job that I'm glad I had an expert do the work. I've got about 2/3 of the washing and waxing done. Will get the rest tomorrow so she'll be ready to leave on Monday. Downloaded new map updates to both of my Garmin 7200 GPS' (one for the MH, one for the PU). I still new to put on a new windshield wiper blade so SHE can see out of her side of the windshield in the rain. Also have to put a new jack on the right front. Mostly done, a little bit more to go.

I replaced an amber marker light and dropped off my RV to have the right side exhaust gasket fixed. We spent the last two weeks at the beach and are itching to go back.

Installed my new custom made table stand.( got rid of the pedestal type). Changed some lights to LED. Started my solar project, installed 1- 120 panel. am going to make a frame to hold the panel,so i can tilt in direction of sun. Will add more panels next year. Added a 3000 watt inverter. Things on my list will be to make a built in electric fireplace and change out my 2 reclining chairs.

Now that I fixed the electric steps I noticed there was a little play in the left side of the step when I stepped on it, pulled the carpet up to find that corner of the entry floor by the door was rotted out. Got a 2ft by 4ft piece of 3/4 plywood from HD and plan to remove the steps this weekend and replace the floor. It's always something.
