Stuck at home

Just joined while killing time due to the COVID-19 stay at home. New trailer sitting outside and can't go anywhere. Will be looking for mod. ideas along several lines as lots of things on this trailer I've never dealt with before.

Personal note: I'm a loner now after loosing my copilot to bone marrow cancer caused pneumonia Feb. 2018. God was always our copilot but now he has no backup. Sold my two year old Forest River as kept seeing the wife sitting on her couch. Yes: I took a bath on that deal.

Must relocate a power switch for the antenna booster as Jayco built it behind the large TV. I have long arms, but, that's ridiculous where it was placed dead center behind the TV.

Many others here in the forums are dealing with the loss of a spouse , after my wife and I lost both sets of parents and each our only siblings and I my brother in law in an eight year time span , I can sympathize.

To get back to setting up your new RV , if it's at all possible to move into your RV while it's still in your yard ( ? ) or very close to home , a week's stay should give you insight into any number of projects to set it up the way you like.

My sympathies for your loss.

On the plus side......Iím betting your temperatures are much better than ours up here on the North Shore of Lake Ontario.

My rig is sitting in the driveway just 50 feet out the window, and thereís tons Iíd love to be fidgeting with. Go play. Go mod. Itís good for you.
