While getting ready for another winter season. I cleaned out the wood stove exhaust pipe. About 10 fires from last season. Not much inside.
Just some powder.
I dont get that liquid tar stuff at all. Image

Had this rope light hanging around and finally found a good home for it.
Just long enough to go around the bed. Turns on when we have shore power.

It's low enough to keep on and still sleep but lights up the floor to see what yur doing at night.
Also in the front there's a bit extra to light up things under the bed storage. ImageImage

A few little things I fixed while im in the shop.
The roll down shade on the big window I didn't make wide enough.
The morning sun would blind ya on the side's.
So I had another cut 4" wider at Lowe's.
Also mounted the electric plug. Seems a good center area.

While at it. I made some hooks and bungee's to hold the vent insulator up better . This cuts down heat loss alot.

Just waiting for a good snowstorm to go camping.

While at harbor freight I decided to grab a pry bar for the stabilizer jacks.
I've been using a 9" flatblade screwdriver with success but.... was always worried I'd break the handle off.
I needed something 1/2" in diameter and I cut it down to 18" length.
Using a soft disc grinder , I rounded off the square edges and flatbladed the end.

What a huge difference and much more safer. Leveling side to side is much better.
Shoulda done this a long time ago.

Spent a weekend doing some urban winter camping and enjoying the wood stove.

Also having the trailer in the shop has made bugging out much faster. With just a little bit of snow outside made moving the trailer by hand a huge task.

Could always use a bit more counter space. So I came up with this, using a fold up table for a toolbox.
Works well.

Made a strap to keep it from swinging during travel and some soft velcro where metal to metal contact is.
Snaps on/off.
