Our RW door looked the same after an attempted break-in. They gave up after trying to peel the door open. What a mess. Now repaired and would not consider a window in the door.

Looks nice Steve, yall will enjoy the Washer and Dryer

Looking for step by step pictures of your Refrigerator upgrade, or you could just stop by on the way to Disney and help me change out my Refrigerator :lol:

Working on two weeks at Disney's Fort Wilderness, already have the Thanksgiving week reserved, working on my schedule so I can add the week prior to Thanksgiving too :)

Changed the cable from pinbox to the truck. Last time I plugged it in coming home from camping it took about three plug-ins to get the brakes to register. After three years, the Redwood end of the cable was oxidized.

Found the factory supplier at Elkhart Supply Corp. (ESCO) Bought 8' replacement for $32 plus shipping - part # MTSC44/8.

Also bought Fastway 7-way rubber cover to keep future moisture out from Amazon.

Make sure you map out the connections in that box before removal because it's crazy in there! (Took about 1 hour)

Also put dielectric silicone in the plug, it will stop the corrosion & helps make a better connection.

I cut off and painted the ears of my PINBOX as they were catching on my tonneau cover in sharp turns. It actually moved the rail past the box it rolls into.
No problems now. The steel in these pin boxes cut like butter with a sawzall

I know its a tough job, but somebody has to do it :)

I leave for Tampa FL (Lazy Days CG) on Wednesday, be there for a week and a 1/2 then to Atlanta GA (Stone Mountain) for a week.

After I get done in Atlanta I come back to Tallahassee for a month, flying up to Montreal for a week, then a Managers Team Building event in Destin (should get a fishing trip in), then a three day Sales meeting here, then to Fort Pierce FL and Miami FL mid October and early November, then up to Orlando / Disney the end of November and back to Tallahassee for December to enjoy Christmas.

Char & Steve 08-29-2016 03:09 AM

YUP... still jealous!!!! We will be at LD Tampa for a week starting October 3rd and then I will be in Destin a few weeks later to visit our new address in Crestview.

If there is a signal to boost the booster will certainly help.

Char & Steve 08-29-2016 10:07 PM

Yes, Exactly what RCAircraft said. Signals vary in every CG and if it's not strong it might not help but at the rally we had almost no signal were we were and once we installed this it was very strong and I only had the antenna laying the roof at the time and now have used the flag pole. We haven't tried it anywhere else yet and will let you know as soon as we do.

For our WiFi Booster Antenna, I mounted a section of PVC pipe on the rear ladder standoffs, then installed a second section smaller in diameter the it just fits inside the already mounted section. This second section is several feet longer. With the antenna mounted on the second section and at a point just below other items on the roof a hole is drilled thru both sections for a 1/4 pin. Then the second section is pushed up as far as it will go another hole is drilled thru it, using the original outer hole as the guide.
When traveling the antenna is lower to the low position, when we arrive and need to use it, pull the pin, push it up and reinsert the pin.
This solution might not be the best for the FL floor plan due to the distance from the ladder to the Livingroom.

5th_Time 08-30-2016 12:13 AM

Michelle, that is a good idea! You probably painted the PVC black to match the ladder I bet.

Yes. that was my problem with the FL and you should only use the supplied wire and a maximum 16' extension. I ran the extension from our desk area through the slide wire harness then through the ceiling of the basement and out into the LP tank area. I put it in there since there is no bottom and just pull the antenna wire up and plug in. This way it's not holding a storage door open. Would like to have done the ladder one but not an option for us.
Was going to mount it to my TV antenna but after trying to figure out how to get the wire up there I gave up and went this way.

Mike, no haven't painted it black, maybe a Winter project tho.
