    Well into the nest he goes. It smells Apollo bad, yes my autocorrect wants Apollo instead of so with a lot of o's. It was his purchase, he can do it. Put your back into it.

    War has fallen over the money pit empire. The rebels insist on deep cleaning, the realm made it pretty freaking clear to ditch any cushions behind enemy lines. they are infested.

    On a serious note can you help? I have read the manual and idk the name of the bottom part of the door, that turns into the step, all put back together, that door needs held by a bungee. All in all, about 6 holes to patch, and a much needed revamp inside.

    Well y'all this is super slow going especially since the days we are in town, it always seems to be raining. We got new rims and tires, unfortunately, they are only C's, so hoping one trip to Michigan International Speedway and back from central PA and staying under 60mph will work for this year. This inside, wow, I didn't know mice could crap that much. The side canvas is excellent shape, the ends have about 6 big holes each from mice. Jerks! We are doing the cheap tape/water sealant for the one Michigan trip. Ordering brand new end canvas for next year. I still say it's structurally sound. Once the galley is up, that looks brand new. I cannot figure out for the life of me how to get the curtains down to wash. Oh and we flex sealed the entire top of the camper for this year. I'm repeating myself, but we only need this for one NASCAR weekend. Biggest issue is needing a very deep clean, so next weekend we are driving down to the local car wash to industrial vacuum up all the last of the mouse poo.

    Deep clean and wipe with a bleach or disinfectant. Lol. I used the wipes, they work well especially in the small area, I kicked the first bucket of water Over!

    Mine has U-shaped clips. A couple I needed to gently pry off with a flat screwdriver but be very careful because plastic has a bad track record with wear.
