I am working in the country so I see dumped and abandoned pets regularly. I guess these guys Packed together for security and companionship. Great Pyrenees, two blue heelers and a Golden Lab. They showed up in the cold yesterday and I made a heated pallet for them inside the Red Barn. Bad cell phone photos of the cabinetry going in. It is progressing.

Thank you for caring for the dogs. All ours are rescues, and more people should care better for dogs. It's sad when a dog is abandoned or strays. They really do need people and a few companions. They are pack animals by nature. My crazy pups all sleep together in a group in cool weather.

Robin - Not at all surprised that you would make a warm spot & care for those dogs. Good on ya.

BTW - Your choices for the Safari look great, circus wagon & all. I like a splash of color too.

Penguin install drain kit

When I did the insulation and wiring I installed wiring and a drain tube to the AC opening. Instructions call for a 14 1/4 inch square opening. That extra 1/4 inch is important. The air dam rail on the bottom needs that extra clearance. 14 inch won't do it . Location of the drain tube needs thought. I put mine on the aft street side and it conflicts with the air dam insert. I had to put the hose thru the dam because I had installed the kit as received with the T fitting on the street side. It should have been on the other side to make a smoother install. Fitting the dam in the rail as the unit is tightened in is a pain. The additional gaskets raise the entire unit to a height I don't like. Compared to my Carrier and Mach 8 units it is not a pleasing look. Lets hope it works well

Hey Robin - you can always go back to the drain pan. I have to say, one of the most common warranty claims I see on new factory units is condensation running off the trailer. I did this kit on one vintage trailer and the owner had me remove it and replace it with the pan because they didn't like the height.

The bath is problematic....

Rebuilding the bath. First, get rid of all the old stinky wood and cheap plastic. I am using a stainless bowl and making it into a round sink.....the old plastic one was crap. I am planning to do something new for me.....a stainless bath/toilet area.

Safety

I hate step ladders. This one broke when I was up working on the Cloud. The ladder brace pulled thru the fiberglass leg and the whole thing collapsed. I am so lucky I did not really get hurt. Let my accident be a warning to you all.

Wow!! I would never think that would happen. I have that same brand of ladder & will certainly be aware! I think the company deserves a phone call on that one! Glad you're not hurt

its hard to read but the little picture has an arrow to where it will break and another arrow to what you will hurt. Have a good Thanksgiving.

This is taking wayyy to long.

All these simple jobs are way to complicated. The stainless sink is a repurposed stainless bowl. The plumbing is all vega-pex. The walls are dark red Zolatone inside the bath.
