Locked my keys in my work truck, only have the one key. 😬

I found some rusty banding material, made a couple cuts in it and had the door Jimmied open in about 2 minutes. I guess I'm getting rusty! 😁😉

Time to get a 2nd key for the truck!

I'm too scared to try that on newer vehicles for fear of setting off a curtain airbag. 😬 Used to do it a lot a with steel banding for crates way back when.

This repair is starting to turn into a “I may as well since I am in here” project. I have been having some issues with the fridge in the motor home and my friend who is a service manager at Camping world directed me toward the gas valve as the possible problem, I went to the local dealership to check on the part. Well it turns out it is hard to find parts for a 17 year old RV fridge. They did have a supplier with the parts but they wanted over $500 for the valve and controller. :oops:

Lucky for me he has a nearly new Dometic sitting in his garage that he had bought for his trailer from his work, but he sold the trailer before installing it. A new 14cuf RV fridge runs between 6-8k and he is selling me this one for what he paid for it.…..1k. Since I am in here and have easy access to the roof and a place to mount a controller, I think I may as well run solar to keep the batterie’s charged

Having had several RV's over the years, I can tell you the fridges have gotten a lot better since my first two RV's.

Two solar panels on my roof will keep my RV fridge running for months without any other power source except the tiny amount of propane they use.

I am sure the new fridges are better…..I just can’t believe how much a new one would have cost if I had to buy one. Lucky my friend had a barely used one sitting around.

Mines a bit different.

I spearheaded our neighnorhood Easter egg hunt this year after the guy who did it last moved prior to Covid. The last 2 years no one gave a crap...so thia year I said WTF.

Approx 2200-2500 eggs stuffed and gwtting ready to be hid in the AM. I am kind of kicking myself for it because I have enough going on and didnt really have the time to dedicate to this...but I missed the neighborhood doing things that brought everyone together. When you aren't "of the majority" you get left out of a lot of neighborhood activities....except this.
