Winter Projects

hello everyone, just received my Christmas present and my winter project a set of Boogy underglow lites for my 2008 45 ft T/S just was wondering what other T/S owners are doing for their winter project. I know with some of you that are full time it's not as easy as having a 60 x 100 ft heated barn to park Besty out of the cold. would be nice to hear everyone plans with this social distancing world we live in today . PS I live in Arkansas half way between Fort Smith & Little Rock on I-40 exit 94on the farm I have two RV sites With 50amps water & sewer if anyone traveling thru needs a safe free place to stay Call Pete 479 264-2803

Jealous,

I'll be draining the radiator and installing new anti freeze today - outside in the COLD and the WIND. -

Looks as if I'll put you in the Phone if we get out again this winter. -

Those two spots inside with You . -

Looking at the Map - https://www.bing.com/maps?osid=097a7...=2&form=S00027 - this you - looks like a pretty large lawn.

I had quite a year - 12,000 + miles - New Alternator - New Coach Batteries - Turbo almost fell off - Kitchen Slide got hung up - Wires to the Brake Lights fell apart - OH then the Transmission Blew, just up the Road in Joplin.

BUT - was the best Summer Yet! - Because of Covid we were able to Meet up with the Two Son's and DW's with 5 of the 6 Granddaughters and tour the Rockies for a Month

So while the old TS had a few issues - it preformed well as the Covid Isolation Vehicle for the Crew.

Again Jealous of your warm Beautiful Shop,

couple of images; TS - Dinner when it is raining and 44 degrees - GD's - Yes with those Girls it was Really FUN and yes there were 14 for Dinner as we grabbed 3 from a West Coast family for a week .

Thank You again, will do.

Like I said best Summer Ever! - Family is the Why we do what we do.

Beautiful SPOT - with a lot of Grass.

Hope my travels bring me in your direction, thanks for the Invitation.

Bill

Sounds like a fun project! Good luck. Upload some photos when complete...

I do not have a warm space to do any projects in the winter unfortunately. I did find a local restorer that is reconditioning my captains chairs. Getting the bolts out of those is a bit of a trick but I’m really looking forward to new padded and dyed chairs. Hopefully they turn out...

I also just had the HWH active air installed and that made a fantastic improvement in the handling. Looking forward to some drives this winter to CO in January and northern MN in February. I figure if it’s too cold to work on the beast I may as well use it.
