First a couple of maintenance tasks
After 8 years, the fresh water intake hose had come loose from its fiberglass housing - making it impossible to remove the fill cap. A few dabs of silicon sealant should do the trick.

Then, I saw that a wiring board had come loose and was rattling about on the floor getting roughed up by the electric power cord. I had some double sticky Velcro that I used (I sandwiched in some foam tape to hopefully dampen road vibration) to remount the board on the side of the hot water heater insulation box.
Next project was to install a litter box
I'm starting to prepare for bringing my little cat, Fay Wray, along on my longer trips. Finding an out-of-the-way location for a litter box (where the dog and I won't be constantly stepping in it) is a top priority!
On my last trip, I emptied the cabinet under the furnace - finding new storage for the kitchen and cleaning supplies that I had been keeping there.
Next, the cabinet door had to come off.
|Hmmmm . . . the hinges aren't held on with flat or Phillips head screws . . .where is my fancy screwdriver with the selection of Allen wrench tips?|
I found an old IKEA reusable shopping bag that was just about the right size for a liner. I taped it into the cabinet - that may cut down a bit on the litter getting kicked into nooks and crannies. The pan is just a storage bin, and there's just enough room on the side for a scooper and some bags!
Will it be acceptable to the tiny princess?
I'll spend some time with Fay Wray in the trailer in the driveway before we actually go camping. Wish me luck . . .
