Well, as promised in my first blog, George is getting a lot of attention. Am set up at Caldwell RV Park, Caldwell ID. I usually dry camp so am getting really spoiled being plugged in. Everything works...air conditioner, cable TV etc! Suppose to get Internet but if you aren't within spitting distance of the office, you can forget it.    

Am really tossing around the idea of becoming a Fulltimer and realized that you need a whole lot more storage space than there is. Up in the bed area, I built shelves at one end for my clothes, took down the ugly curtains on the front cab window, tinted it and then hung cargo netting across it for shoes, extra blankets and whatever else wouldn't fit in the closest. It actually opened it up so it looks almost twice the size. Not a lot of counter area in the kitchen so am struggling with what to do about microwave. Any suggestions? Also removed the broke, plastic shower door and think I'll just put a shower curtain up.

Outside is where it is happening. New rear brakes, any electrical connectors are being checked and new wire exposed with new connectors added. Am going to have it undercoated along with the doghouse insulated. Would like to get to a salvage yard and see about getting some clearance lights and mirrors. When I try to get the lenses off, the base is so old and dry rotted that they just seem to crumble, the connections are rusted and there must be at least a half inch of dirt in them. All the access doors are being resealed, weather stripping added and every nook and cranny vaccumed. Want a new paint job but that will probably have to wait til spring. Don't like where the ladder to roof is located as it is right in front of my right side tail lights but have no idea yet what to do there.

Some things have to wait until I get out of the RV Park such as changing some gaskets, the shocks and u joints.

Have been taking a lot of pics and will get them posted soon. Happy Travels To All

Clearance lights and markers can be had real cheap (with warrantee) on Ebay, There are several reputable RV suppliers on there and I use them ALOT. My last set of marker lights ran $1.60 each, double bulb with Butyl tape to seal them. the last time I checked an RV shop locally they wanted $6.99 each light. :-(

Ive learned also,, if the lenses are faded,, CHANGE the whole fixture. The wiring does get dry rotted and its actually in best interest to change whole light fixture so all the clearance lights work. Good luck and happy camping.
