Well... The Bunny got home...she loves the new carpet. So, we moved our bed back in, and set it up. Now we're going to Win River Casino for Halloween...and maybe some poker!

Happy Halloween Folks!!!!

Today I installed a seal kit in the Thetford Bravura in the Excella. Started about 11 this morning and finished about 12:30, just in time for lunch. Spent most of the time just cleaning up the parts and making them look like new. Not a bad job at all.

Went back around 4, and the seal was still holding water in the bowl.

The blade seal had been leaking for several months.

Here is a pic from the compounding and waxing of the tv. Did I mention when he finished my car he decided to do his? As for today we winterized for the first time of our ownership. All in all a good day.

Ms. Niche.... Hubby did a nice job on your tow vehicle.


This morning The Bunny completed the refinishing job of my dresser. So, we moved it back into the bedroom.

MR. G...we need to get you your own DIY show... good idea, better than driving to HF to buy a new tool with limited use.

Hey I'm glad you liked that one. Those little bits that seem to come with everything you buy these days fit well into a 1/4" box end wrench. Would work with a socket too, of course, but I needed minimal thickness. I was fixing the screws in the bathroom mirror, that had shaken loose after less than a thousand miles of towing.

Along those same lines, the little set screws that hold the towell racks etc. had also shaken loose. I didn't have a set of allen keys with me. We were snowed in. I did find an allen wrench left in the trailer, with no idea what it fits, but it was too big to tighten the set screws I needed to tighten.

Did you know you can take the file blade of a Swiss Army knife and, if you are careful, file down an allen wrench two sizes? the good news here is that the other end remains the original size so whenever I figure out what it's for in the trailer, it will still be useful.


Also, fingernail polish works just great if you don't have threadlock or Loctite.

Right now I'm going to wash the Fly at Night.

It's a bit cold out; will use warm water so my baby doesn't catch a chill. I will also lovingly towel dry her....to a warm sheen.

wrote a blog post. Same old stuff.

I do like the way this one came out, though:



Doesn't the beach stuff all start looking the same after a while? Maybe I'm getting jaded.

thanks. The one I did today still needs some editing and some videos inserted. Should be some fresh photos in a day or so.
