Maybe I should have named this thread, "How Not to rebuild an rv". Lol.

Generally, there will be one of three reactions to any of this.

Wow, that's great. I never thought of that.

Wow, that's totally stupid.

Wow, that's funny. Thanks for the laugh.

When I was driving rollback, I delivered a vehicle about 50 miles from where I picked it up. The driver of the vehicle rode with me to the garage. He was a little "talkative" during the drive.

When I arrived at the garage and dropped the vehicle off, the garage owner, said, " well, I guess you're glad to drop this guy off.

My reply was - everyone make me happy, some when they come, and some when they go! Lol.

What works for one, may not work for someone else.


If you want to do something, you will find a way.
If you don't, you will find an excuse.

I was taught to reply to any negative comment about my work: "I try to have a little something for everyone." [emoticon]

Just for giggles ... What is your wife's most "cringe worthy" moment?

Since it's starting to get a little warmer out, (91 tomorrow), I thought I would modify my "fan" just a little bit to fit the rear window slide area a little bit better.

I cut the plywood that the fan is attached to, so it would fit and not fall out, and it works like a charm.

Variable speed, temporary wiring, what more could a person ask for? Lol.

I did some cleaning today - small spaces can get cluttered in a hurry, can't they?

I originally was thinking of installing the toilet along the rear wall. Upon further consideration, it looks like I may be moving that to the opposite wall.

This is the wall that borders the kitchen.

What that will do is allow me to do is, keep just about all the plumbing in this area here.

Minimizing the length of water lines, along with fewer joints, is a good thing.

That will amount to minimal time winterizing, (if necessary).

Wahoo!

Update on the repair of the "ears" of the Magic Bullet blender.

They are still holding strong, and doing their job, just as they should.

I am beginning to think that some of the failures on the web, are due to poor gluing techniques, rather than the glue itself.

I repaired a little clip for my wife's earphones, and that also seems to be holding up very well.

There is a little clip that holds the wires to your clothing, and the one "ear" broke off of that.

I repaired that with the glue that uses uv light to cure, and it's been holding up for well over a week. So far, so good.
