How Can You Tell When You Have Too Many Mods...

Decided to wire the window bypass switch down to the forward basement compartment so that I can roll the window down in case I’m locked out. I couldn’t see how to get the wires down to the compartment so I sent a PM to DS Don for help. Don responded with what I need to do to route the wires.
I got the wire together, splices, connectors, etc and a coat hanger to run the wires up. Opened the compartment only to see a set of wires with a label “Window Bypass”.
Looked up my list of mods and saw that I did this mod several months ago.
Looking for a good ocd therapist......

You don't have too many mods, you have too much free time. I have a project.....


Seriously, you're a couple steps ahead of yourself. What's on the DW's list of things to improve, move, or fix?

It's really bad when one tries to make a list of all the mods one makes if they keep the same RV for a number of years......

You know you have too many mods when your list gets longer than NealC's.

Ya know what they say "Old age ain't for sissys". As long as you remembered to put your pants on and a fresh shirt today you're probably OK. But, is the shirt buttoned right?

As long as I’m vertical, I’m good.

You have to admit though, it was kinda funny!

Warning, anyone parked next to Winepress be sure to hide your keys. He may leave the CG for his next stop in your coach!

That's substantial! Do you by chance buy your oil in 55 gallon drums?
