Not much accomplished today. I did fix the "oops" from yesterday's shelf build (I made the shelf 1 1/2" too short). So now there are shelves over the couch. Last two wire shelves will go over the bed in the back. Shouldn't take long to install those (only 3 times longer than I expect).
After fixing the shelves, Mom came over to help install the solar panels on the roof rack. Unfortunately, we discovered one of the panels was cracked!
After some debate, took both boxes back to Harbor Freight and got my money back. I've read online there are better kits for RV application.
I'm looking at the following:
The only thing that worries me is getting it shipped to the house within the next week.
Otherwise, I'll use battery powered lanterns and plug into campground juice.
While out, I did take back the fancy folding ladder I'd ordered from Sam's Club. It was really well built... but way too heavy to handle at the end of a long day. Mom found an aluminum one just like it at Costco that weighed a fraction of the Sam's Club version. So now I have a nice light ladder to climb onto the deck... and nothing to put up there yet.
At least the back of the bus is cleaned out a little more. Between the two boxes of solar panels, the truck crane, a gas-less welding machine, and 4 ladders (2 of Mom's regular ladders, 1 I bought from Sam's, + 1 step ladder to climb out the back), it was rather difficult to walk through to the back.
But it's all good. Tomorrow is Friday and I get to run up to the RV store to buy a regular dump valve and fitting.
