I web comparison shopped for materials to make rolling drawers for the pantry in Ten Forward. Does that count? Didn't get a dang thing done otherwise.

Shopping counts!

One thing I really like about my Jeep - it doesn't have a key, just the remote thingy that stays in your pocket...all the time. And if someone is with me they get the spare. To unlock the door, you put your hand under the door latch. To lock it, you press a button on the latch. If the remote is inside the Jeep, it's impossible to lock the door. So I can leave the extra trailer keys inside the Jeep.

I must go out to my new Escape at least a half dozen times a day fiddling around with things! I love to press the button and see that the batteries are charged up. Today I vacuumed the cushions and floor after my earlier short trip with dirty pups. And bought a small propane grill. And found a plastic container to put the water hose in. And put the gaucho bunk back down and the small dinette back up.

Maybe tomorrow I'll put the bunk back up...

The junction box is probably located on the other side of the point where your 7 pin cable goes through the trailer into the interior.

Easy enough to test out. Just remove the Marrette wire connectors and put a hot wire to the, from memory, the green and brown. If both sides have the lights on those are the two to use. The only potential problem I could see doing it that way is that each one would have to have its' own switch otherwise all lights would flash when using the turn signals.

Today I went around town (some of you call it shopping, but I don't) looking for a brake spoon (braking adjustment tool). Didn't find one anywhere, because, I guess, cars all have self-adjusting brakes.
But, I did score a set of towing mirrors for our new (for us) Escape tow vehicle, at the outrageously low clearance price of $7 ea. Yessss!
Then I contemplated how to mount the brake controller up where I can see it, without making any holes in the dash. I think I've got a solution, TBA.

Donna, I did a sliding drawer. Only issue was the set back sides that I had to build out to the edges of the opening are not square to the front. Just makes for some measuring. I used 100 lb full extension slides.

Wonderful Bob, that exactly what I want to do. Drawers in the pantry must make it so much more useful. Murphy's Law, everything I need is always at the very back.

Yes, we've found just the one is enough for now.

We're still waffling on the drawers in the pantry. For the moment I've installed temporary shelves and we use wicker baskets in place of drawers.

Shelves vs. drawers -- drawers make it easier to get to the stuff at the back, but good 100% extension slides are not cheap, and you lose some space to the slides, drawer sides, and space behind the face frame.

Boy, no neat modifications for me...

I think we are going to put the flip up countertop at the front where the 110 and 12v plugs are---have one at the bed area at the rear that is high enough to not bother us when it is made as a bed (my night table) but now we are putting the bed up and down every day (so easy with the travasak) Now we are actually using the large table, I didn't like the flip up table by the sink....

Otherwise I went out and cleaned and re-organized the inside again--I had taken all the cushions apart this winter and washed the covers (washer and dryer)--they went on great and look cleaner---the trailer is a 2008....

Trailer is still tarped...probably won't get washed/waxed till the beginning of May (although today is SO bright and beautiful---but other things on the agenda)

We use cheap $$ store bins in our wardrobe/
can stack them if the toaster oven is brought along...We know what is in each bin and just take out the one we want and root around in it.. Organized enough and usually towels stay behind them so even they aren't all the way to the back...
