Default What did you do to your HiLo Today?

I hung all six metal blinds over my clothes line. Kind of heavy with the header clothes pined to the line. Fun doing this by my self. The weather was cooperative at 72degrees with no wind and sunshine. Ended up spraying about three coats on each side. Came out 95% good. Certainly better than blinds with the coating missing. Used 8 cans of spray paint at about $34.00 total cost. The next spray paint project will be to remove the exterior plastic trim that cover some wires. Just old age,nothing that a little TLC can't cure. A chance of rain every day and humid.

Sam, at a small risk of showing off, the only thing we did was clean the toilet area and sit and drink coffee before halibut fishing. We're still in Alaska, Homer to be exact. And I'm glad your blinds are turning out good. Only you will know where the blemishes are.

I worked on making a removable backup camera and monitor system for the Tundra and Hi-lo.

Brand new to the HiLo crowd, we just purchase a '72 yesterday. the guy we bought it from dumped loads of money into to it, but just wasn't able to camp any longer Sad for him, but good for us. We cleaned ours today and spent some time trying to get the fridge working. May need to go back to the folks that worked on it for the last owner for some help with it.

We took the UFO out over the weekend to get her some exercise, let her stretch her legs and all that.

Went camping locally just to get away from the hose for a bit.

We just arrived home after our 2.5 month sojourn.
8,200 miles with NO TV or hi-lo problems.
Have been cleaning out and going over the hi-lo from the extended trip.

I purchased after many months of searching a Dometic portable ice maker.
I can do without an oven, but while on my 3 month trip in 2012 I decided that a ice maker would make life much more tolerable while traveling.
Requires 120v power, or a much larger charger than I take camping.
Being able to have ice is such a valuable asset that I have now made plans to make a slide-out to house the unit while in use. It will reside in the TV during transit and is not hard plumbed or wired.
I consider this addition a massive plus to any long term camping.

I don't drink site water from unreliable sources. I do filter. I use water from friends homes and purchase water from purification stations where ever I shop, ie: walmart every major grocery store. I use this water to make ice.

I have enough ice for a family of 4 with-in 1-2 hour after arrival at my camping spot.

I love to camp, but lets not be toooooo primitive!

We are now home and enjoying that also.

CAMP ON!!!!!!!

Default Spray painting again

Put my first batch of gloss painted exterior plastic strips on. Can you say awesome looking. DH removed all the rest and I had fun using q-tips and a rag to get 23yrs. of crud out of the backside channels. Only had to spray paint the front. Ace hardware had a box of 100 #8x1/1-4 stainless steel screws. HD sucks in the SS screw offerings(even though my daughter works there). We have now replaced every screw in the trailer with ss screws.

The mods have begun.
I finally figured out how to remove the valances and am debating new colors and covers for them. The P.O. cut the curtains on them for some unknown reason and I am trying to figure out what will look good and darken the inside at the same time and not get hung up when we set it down for traveling

DirecTv came out last night to hook up a satellite receiver. Found a dead splitter behind the fridge, a connector that is too small for the new upgraded connector. So now I need to get another splitter to replace the old one and make a new box to go behind the cable/phone hookup. Might have to run a new cable from the splitter to the connector on the fridge also.
