Ordered some Bostik 1100 and copper wool to seal up some rather large gaps between the wheel well liners and the banana wrap that I didn't notice until after I left Jackson Center in May.

Also thinking of getting a 2 gal Rotopax to carry fuel for the generator

Installed Sun Guard Solar 85 screen material on door screen. Blocks out significant heat and I think the black color matches the tinted windows. Also harder to see in from the outside.

Use this material for our south facing windows on our house.

Also did the bedroom screens to help block heat.

Received the Everpure QC-2 under-counter filter bracket and attached faucet for our Avion. Not sure if ours ever had one, but the sink already has the hole required, the wall under the sink already has mounting screws, and there is a capped-off water line ready to use! I'm guessing each trailer was prepped for possible options?

Anyway, glad to get it. It was on EBay and had been available for at least a year from what I remember. It is in great shape and came with the bypass fitting that is used when a filter is not present. Finally decided to order it last Friday. It showed up at our door Monday!!!

Need to replace the copper line due to a split, and order a new filter cartridge. All in all, will have about $80 invested..... Not bad!

I got this idea from someone on this forum, not sure who it was...but today I picked up a small journal so I could list the parks we stay at, the dates we stayed there, and the prices and my impression of the parks. The idea is in the future to return to the good places and avoid the bad.

Purchased a few rolls of Reflectix rolled reflective insulation and cut an internal window shield for each window in the EB 25'. For use when parked for long periods of time or during high heat times while camping. Couldn't believe how easy it was to cut to size. Mounts between the screen and glass or between screen and shade.

Made a huge difference today in interior temp (almost 15 degree decrease)

Installed REPLACEMENT control board on our Progressive hard wired surge protector.

It even worked when completed!!! Test phase has begun.

Progressive has good support... But do not cover defective part return shipping....

Went to Lowes and got new clear knobs for the Avion's bathroom Delta sink and shower faucets to replace the originals that had gotten cloudy looking.

Much better!

We did the same a month ago! So worth the little money, easy to fit and cut.

1 roll did every window on my 30' including stack Windows, panoramic Windows, vista view Windows, and skylights.
The roll was 4'x25'.
