TravelnPop&Nan, wow, that must be a nice car port. Did you erect it or have it done by others? A picture would be nice.

Not sure why the pics are sideways or how to rotate them? I am still learning how to Navigate this website.
I did not build it, I had a local contractor do it, he install’s the post in 2’ deep concrete, most them have a track on the bottom, that works good if you are on top on a concrete slab. We can get snow and wind so they have to be installed to handle that.

Bought (and just installed) a toilet seal. Fun stuff (not), but needed it.

200w of Renogy solar with an MPPT Rover controller. Should arrive early next week and hope to have it installed a couple days after that.

I like the size of your carport, Fred & Sherry. Did you install the curtain on the rear sides? We erected a car port for a lady a few years ago. She had cross ties on the ground for the support legs. She said it was read for us to set the pre-cut legs on. But is was not even close to level. So we had to tackle leveling the base before we could begin the erection. Soon afterwards, she gave the shelter away to have it moved as she was selling her place.
I like the support legs being more secure as yours, in concrete.

Oh I am, the F350 is sitting under the car cover on the other side of the driveway in this picture. (I keep my trucks for a long time, the California Car Cover was quite expensive but worth every penny, I'll eventually get one for the RAM).

The Ram is rated at 350 hp and 800 ft-lbs torque, while my 93 F350 IDI Turbo Diesel with the Banks Turbo is rated at 260hp and 500 ft-lbs of torque (at 240k+ miles is likely not producing that much anymore). Pretty decent jump in power which is nice. Another nice upgrade is the RAM has an exhaust brake, while the F350 doesn't.

The other reason I finally decided to buy newer is my wife has bad arthritis, the ride in my old 93 F350 is very old school stiff truck, she is usually hurting pretty bad at the end of the day. The 2012 RAM rides like a Cadallac compared to the 93 F350.

I REALLY love my old OBS 93 F350, going to be hard to sell it, but I can't justify having two 1 ton crew cab duallys. I will miss how inexpensive the old iron IDI is to maintain.

Mr Bojango,

We installed the sun screen on both side. I am thinking of bringing the metal down the back depending on cost? It get a little sun in the afternoon.

Serviced the Vacuum pump for the Magnum-Opus Vacuum flush toilet.

Not sure about Northern CA, but here in Texas, that sure works against the horrible hail we sometimes get, in addition to the damaging effects of the hot sun.

You will LOVE the exhaust brake!! Especially if you live in a mountainous area. You will also like that it has no DEF! It really helps if you can get it tuned and dump the EGR stuff.

We get snow, some hail, not normal to be big enough to do damage!
We put it up mostly to keep out of the sun and keep it cooler inside and out of the snow in the winter.
It works real well for that so far, much cooler inside.
