Turned the 12 volt power on for the first time since I started tearing her apart at the start of the restoration back in 2015.

Purchased a mag mount antenna for the satellite radio.
In anticipation of getting a Lance 1172 late in spring or early summer.

After 5 years out in the elements my rear view camera was no longer cutting it. I traced the problem to the cameras internal wiring. I called Tadibrothers from whom I purchased the system in 2016. They asked for my email and pulled up my invoice. That gave them the info needed to give me compatible new camera options
my old camera had a 120* field of view, my new one has 170* both are/were full color with night vison. $80 plus tax and free shipping by USPS. I had the camera in two days.

The wiring was just plugging in two RCA jacks and mounting was just swapping one camera mount assembly for the other using the same two screw holes. 15 minutes and I had a system that worked like new. I like simple fixes. The wires still need to be tucked away but that will take a non rainy day so I just zip tied them up and out of the way for now. The image is so crisp compared to where the old camera and degraded to.

Started packing up for a trip to the White River in Arkansas in a couple of weeks. I’m going at the end of the week my company is doing layoffs. I’ll either have a job to come back to, or be free to stay as long as I want, chasing monster brown trout. It’s a win either way!

Removed the vent assembly for the furnace and the 110volt twist lock plug for the last time so I could make new exhaust pipes for the furnace (the factory ones are about five inches too short from even their long units and all they are are sections of 2" O.D thin walled automotive exhaust pipe) and a nice diamond plate surround for the outlet to help hide the old screw holes from the original cable hole surround that the camper had come with from the factory (Last owner changed it to a marine twist lock and just filled the old screw holes with caulk).

Was working on the wiring, but needed some parts to arrive for the plug to make the 3 pin round umbilical cable for the backup camera, so switched gears for a bit.

I cleaned out the burner area on my refrigerator after noticing an off smell last fall when operating on propane. Hoping the black carbon chunks I blew out does the trick.

Then moved on to the batteries (dual 6 volts) and pulled them out to check water level, added just a little to each cell and reinstalled.

Lastly, replaced the rubber seals on my Rieco-Titan jack legs. One was missing and the other three were rotted out and just hanging on the bottom of the leg.
