The Grand[parent] Tour – Part 3.
We have now been living out of RV for about/over two weeks. Some stuff is still broken. But some things GParents were able to help us make, fix/modify.
We needed interior step cover so elderly dog didn’t fall to her doom while we are driving.
We had been using beanbag chair – that was too big. GParents suggested we make a step. This was a three day build because of stain, polyurethane, glue drying issues. The whole family worked on this one. Looks easy – but….
It worked PERFECTLY. Looks good. And does not rattle – a nice snug fit.
Also, we had Callie’s stitches removed while we were here.
Head stitches are out.
Things that haven’t worked out:
First sewer hose.
First water hose – same problem. Too short.
Banging curtain on sides of house needed weatherstripping:
Bought chocks. Not sure if necessary, but….
Boppa made wood pads for jacks:
Mirror magnet didn’t work – new magnet.
Needed additional magnet for when those heavy paper cups tip over? Not even kidding.
Needed temp curtain (thank you Grandma Kathy) until we can figure out how to purchase permanent one. Why this wasn’t included with a new RV purchase?
And the damn Dinette/bed. It does not lay flat. Cannot be pushed down or cusions changed to go flat. We have tried.
Sleeping on it was impossible for the kid. Pushing it down wrecked edges of table (this is some cheap POS).
So GParents gave us cushion mattress to go over top of table. And we are sticking beanbag in space to fill gap.
No idea who thought this design up. Design and construction for this just sucks.
One thought on “RV – Random things we have made, bought, or modified.”
Wow, you really got a lot done while you were there. Some very creative fixes.
