New custom fit wool/sisal mat for the bedroom. Much nicer in the morning than a cold floor.

Making the Gaucho more comfortable

Today, my wife and I made a 9" diameter "bolster" pillow to sit on top of the gaucho in our 25' Classic.

I had been debating replacing it with recliners, but too much work at this time, so instead, we brainstormed on how to make it more comfortable.

We ended up buying some fleece fabric, several pieces of 6' wide batting, and a piece of large diameter rigid foam pipe insulation.

The fleece was folded over, sewn at 11 1/2" wide. This would allow a bit of stretch and end up containing the batting in a 9" diameter. The batting was rolled up over the pipe insulation, and the "sock was pulled over the batting turning inside out as we went (there was a trick involved). The excess fleece on each end was folded over and will be hand sewn. It looks quite nice!

I am making a wooden frame using 2 1x2s for vertical pieces, and a 5" x 6' long cedar fence board that will be attached to the 1x2s, and this will provide back support and keep everything away from the curtain and blinds. The 1x2s will slip down between the sections of the back of the gaucho, and everything will just stay nicely in place, and be easy to remove to access the window latches and 12V cutoff switch. The pillow will need to be attached to the back support somehow.

When we put the gaucho back into place, we may shim up the front a little, or shim up the entire thing, and believe it will be much better than it was!

I'll post pictures in a day or two...

When you check out the motorsnorkel, also check out Genconnex for their LP-only conversion (or if you don't have generators, they sell converted Honda generators too). We did ours with their kits. They run off the LP port and I couldn't be happier. But it's LP-only. You lose the gasoline capability in the conversion process which worked for me. Good luck!

After a long winded story, Thursday we were able to get to Ponderosa Shadows in Show Low, AZ and get the Mercedes and 23D towed out of the Cedar Creek fire zone and back to Gallup where we are trouble shooting a fuel issue in the big truck.

Note that I was told by GenConneX the front propane port may not run both Honda generators when it is either cold or at altitude. They said that a 30 pound bottle was necessary to run two units at once as a 20 pound bottle could not vaporize the gas liquid propane fast enough for two units when cold.

Well, not the ritz, but it feels a lot better! Easy to put in and remove, and the height is adjustable. I can access the window latches and blinds OK.

It turned out that this extension cord has only a 5 Amp fuse in it, whereas the little pump specifies to use it with 15 Amp cigarette lighters and not older 8 Amp lighters. So, logically, the 5 Amp fuse blew almost immediately when I started the air pump. Not useful. I bought some more fuses, but the car parts store guy advised not to increase the fuse amp level in order no to melt the cord or some other bad outcome. So, I should have shopped more carefully, and now have a 25-ft extension for I don't know what use. Oh well, a lesson learned in reading specifications.
