This year, the entry door to our rig got so hot that the adhesive that I used to install the new glass into window frame last winter slipped down about an inch at the top. The prior owners had installed a beautiful stained glass window of an Iris (that's how Tracy came up with the name "Iris" for our rig) below, but it leaked inside and the frame outside had cracked with age. I had visions of having to take the two piece frame apart and start the process over. The last time, the install was not fun as I found having a third hand was a requirement and unfortunately I was only born with two.
So I was off to my favorite store Harbor Freight (I will use any excuse to go there and walk the aisles, it is truly an adult toy store) to purchase a suction cup for the job. $4.99 later, (well it was actually more than that because I found a couple of other must have items) I was out the door.
I found the glass adhesive/sealer that I had purchased a few months ago at Home Depot and I was off to make the repair. I put a bead of adhesive on both sides of the glass, connected the suction cup and moved the glass back into place, it worked perfectly. To ensure that the glass did not slip while drying, I connected the suction cup to the bottom of the glass as you will see below, while everything was setting up.

With that repair completed, we are one step closer to our first outing of the year in less than two weeks. We are getting pretty excited and can't wait to try the new toys that we purchased at the end of last summer and haven't been able to use.
I was off to Tucson yesterday where it was sunny and beautiful and I saw many rigs heading south for the winter. I have not spent much time there, but hope to in the future.
Well I hope your week is off to a great start and don't forget to tune in to the VP Debates tomorrow night. Stay safe out there and thanks for the visit!
