Not sure if it would work with all click lock floors or not. Good for installation too I would think.

That tool could be made from a large barn door hinge. Use double stick
tape on the short end of hinge to stick to the floor. Screw a length of
a 2 by 4 to the long arm of the hinge to pound on.

Thanks for posting, Mike.
Sure thing Peter. Ive read many folks having trouble with plank flooring and gaps, or like you say, repairs to a piece in the field of the floor. Just looked interesting.

We were finally able to get out and do some camping, haven't been out since the get together in Michigan....that sucks. But life gets in the way sometimes. We are just a little over an hour away from home but it could be 1000 miles as far as how it feels. LOVE camping during the week, only one other RV in the whole state park campground. Pretty hot but the 2 ACs are keeping the rig nice and cool. Still think that adding the second shore power cord for running the rear AC is one of my favorite mods on the rig.

Fox Ridge State Park, we can pop down here at a moments notice since it's so close to home and it's really a nice park. Big sites, rarely crowded, a pond for Wrigley to swim in.
Love it.

Hope al you fellas are doing well and having a good summer!

The lubricant comes from the same source so be prepared to pay for that as well......

We just love having the whole place to ourselves! Wrigley can run around off leash, wildlife is more visible, night time walks are a trip........saw a fox today on a trail, very rare these days. Enough cell service to stream movies if we want. Very peaceful and very cool.

Had a whole family of those in the field this spring
Think there's 2 left
They've started eyeing the small dogs, if you want one they're all yours!

Not to worry about foxes and pets, coyotes yes, fox typically don't see humans or most pets as prey. People lose a lot of dogs n cats to coyotes around here though.

Normally I'd agree, but this is a big freaking red fox, stands as tall as the border collie, biggest I've ever seen, and I started getting worried when i saw it take out a groundhog in the front yard
The border collie is fine, but the other dogs are little yappy things barely bigger than rabbits.
