So I never did get around to mansplanin / dockumentin why I chose a rock Pad for CT storage. The rotten broken gate set me back. But there it is. I reused the entire gate but the posts and ect are new.


I really can work on it here and dont have to move it out front to load either. There will be power and water close by and no dirt to track around the CT or the pool deck but VERY important is the drainage factor. But a safe permanent storage place is neccasary for this package.


I may know a master Electrician.... :roll: Ahem..Don that outlet on the wall there near the window is a 220 prewire to the pool breaker panel. I only need 110. Can it be done? :thinking: See ya soon! :D

Tommy, we can grab one phase of the 240VAC and a nuetral and the ground from that panel and you will have what you need.

Think its time for one of these. Seems pricey but it has some features I think I might need.. :thinking:

I Cleaned it all up a bit and centered it up but still not sure exactly what I want to do with the extra storage space the wood plank may provide.

Looks great!

If you end up with the electric jack and are going to take advantage of a direct connection to the battery, make sure you fuse the line appropriately at the battery side of the wire run. Don't want a meltdown if something shorts.

I really like my electric jack.. worth it.

Reminder I have twin tank covers that are yours. Will look great on there.

Ok ordered that electric jack post and these fancy levelers for 26.00 bucks. Both will be here Friday. Both will make life easier at the camp site. Hope one pack is enough.

I cut one of my lynx blocks in half so I can make up that empty half space on the top of the stack.

Electric jack post. Love it. Those steps are awesome! Strong enough to kick your boots off and stamp plus drain grooves. 8) RE flex sealed the awning. Case of water and beer. Bottle of Jameson. Two stroke oil and a wrist brace. Hot key on the phone for 911. :shock:
HERE WE GO! :beer:

Don all good here. Dont worry. BRING YOUR CHAIN SAW, please.

WHO NEEDS 911 WHEN YOU GOT J. JAMESON & SONS? :thumbsup:
Annnd.... flboy riding shotgun with a chain saw! Happy Thanksgiving Tommy and Happy Camping! Go Get em'.
I am digging the stairs, but won't really solve my issue. I'm still gonna try to run 'em over. Hey, here's an idea. Hows about some "EarthStairs"? A recycled cardboard shovel and a recycled cardboard form so you can "Build your own Adobe EarthStairs and treat 'em like pure 'Leaverite' when you go. MSRP $49.99 (+49.99 shipping and handling) The must have Christmas gift for 2018. Love the Earth and Love your stairs." :thumbsup: :D

EarthStairs and Leaverite are registered Trade Names of McDave Enterprises.

So, whadya' think?.... ;) ..

Tommy, I just need to load the KTM and food and ready to go! Chainsaw is in the stack.

I will call you Tuesday PM to finalize plans. Right now my intention is to haul to work Wednesday AM. and leave from work around 4:30pm and be there by 7:30PM. Delancey East if we can get in there, Delancey West as fallback.

I am bringing the KTM-690R instead of the KTM-450EXC. I didn't get a chance to go through the 450 maintenance routine and if we do ride.. it will be just dirt roads and pavement connectors anyhow... so perfect for the KTM-690R. We can ride to the dam and etc.. I'd like to ride down to Big Scrub one day also now that it is back open and see what improvements were made. I can show you Big Bass and Alexander Springs while we are down there.. all improved dirt roads and no rough stuff so maybe your wrist can hold up. We will see.


BTW.. the Electric Jack looks great! You will enjoy that luxury!

So I am going to try this new hobby while camping in places like this. Some thing to tinker with between duel sport rides. If I don't loose it in a tree or in one of the many lakes around but what the hell.

Don this video on utube shows the exact model and mod I want to do. There are a few different ways to do this it seems. You must mod the controller also to get up to 2km in distance but we can talk about that later. I need to order the parts but thought I would consult you first. Parts are like 20 bucks or so. There is also a battery mod that I may consider.

Like in our last camp sight or bring it up to the damn.
Preview and let me know on the parts. Please at your convenience. We will have fun. No rush. I can do this in my cast too! :beer:

New window installed over the weekend with MUCH help from flboy. More to follow. Don (flboy) came over and we threw down on the C.T. I Insulated that wall and we also installed an exterior GFI outlet while upgrading and relocating the existing kitchen outlet. More to follow. Really makes the inside pop! :D In mt dreams!

Tommy B, Howdy;

Been awhile, good to see you haven't forgot how to navigate a keyboard.
New window looks good and you can keep it open during the afternoon
showers.
Don't be a stranger.

Hello all. Still awkward typing. Big C.T changes. Shorten bed width by ONE foot. Rookie build mistake. You can see the small challenges with mattress gap but some portable foam will fill the gap. :thinking: This will allow the big Dometic refridge/freezer to fit at the ramp end with 8 inches to spare. This is huge in such a cramped area. I want to install a rear ramp window. Maybe a 12-14 inch portal window which Don gave me to use or a standard window. It could look like an Air Stream! 8) :beer: In my dreams :D
