It's now been 2 weeks.
Those stinky Rock Tamers have been outside. They still stink. I had a hard time loading up and hitching up with that smell constantly in my nose. The 2 pieces that I cut off to make them the right length are still in the bed of the truck. Maybe I should remove them...

The smell from brand new Rock Tamers is the smell of the money you saved from needing to replace the front corner panels, front windows or the SS stone guards from only slightly sub-sonic rocks and other road debris. Ahhh the fragrance of freshly minted money....now to spend the savings on something else

Though it wasn't purchased today, I finally got the chance to use it! A new, vintage-style awning:

No telling what was used in manufacturing these Rock Tamers?? Monkey guts ?
A few years ago I installed some $80,000 white silk wallcovering from China that was hand painted. It stunk real bad. When we requested some touch up paint, we were told (after a long stalling technique) that they were not allowed to import the paint to the US from China due to safety import regulations. Hmmm, at least you don't have to sleep in the same room with your rock tamers...

Now there is a great idea. Checker plate tool box doubling as an entry step. Good going, Ragin-Cajun. Jim

I wish I could take the credit, but a PO made that. Reinforced the lid (underneath) with a board and added gripper strips on the top surface. Helps a lot to serve double duty step and tool box.

New Satellite Dish

Will be watching more that regular TV on the next campout with my "Little Jewel". With all the stainless steel upgrades and solar, I am still looking for more to add.

Flag Poles

What does everyone use for flagpoles? I can find the flags and the flagpole holders, but where do you get the flagpoles?

Telescoping paint roller extension handles from Lowe's. Lightweight, sturdy and just the right length. Plus, they collapse down to a reasonable size for transport.
