New Toys For The 5ver

 Yesterday and today we picked up a couple of toys for the 5ver and also got one in the mail. The first was the new Capture plate needed for the Pullrite Superslide Hitch to operate correctly. The capture plate fits over the king pin and up against the kingpin skid. The new plate is held in place with bolts. The top pic is the kingpin with out the plate and the second is with it. The Y at the rear of the plate matches the Y notch on the hitch allowing it to lock together and turn as one unit. Woooo Hoooo now we can actually tow our rig with our own truck!!!

 The next items are more for convenience and to make life on the road just a little bit better. Back when we had our house I had a nice portable air compressor, however it was alittle to big to take along in the trailer. We ended up selling it, as I had a nice little 12v compressor that did the job. Well, with the 5ver and the larger tires requiring 80psi the little 12v job is just not up to the task. Today I found a nice small in size 120v air compressor at Home Depot, and just the right size to fit in the outside storage compartment. I tested it out on the 5th Wheel tires and it only took a couple of minutes to bring them up to 80psi from 60psi. I like it!!!

Our next purchase was a vacuum, we had been looking at small stick vacuums, since we only have carpet in the bedroom, we just need something small. Then while shopping for the compressor I ran across these little Shop Vacs. I talked it over with Sheryl and we decided it would work fine for the bedroom and do double duty as a regular shop vac if needed (we have needed one in the past). So for less than $100.00 for the two we walked away with life becoming just alittle better.

Sheryl hasn't quite finished her decorating project yet, so we'll have keep you in suspense just alittle longer. Sheryl's Physical Therapy is coming along nicely as well as good news from the pain management doctor, looks like she'll be running circles around me pretty soon!!! She can't wait!!!

Things are coming together and looks like our departure for the open road is going as scheduled, end of July, and we are both so looking forward to it.. That's it for this installment, so keep Lovin Your Life as we do ours.

A lot of people have dumbbells scattered
throughout their fitness rooms and sometimes times have got to locate the correct amount of
weight before they're able to begin with their do exercises routine. By doing this I can work out one body part at a time with a hundred percent effort and still fully recover to work out my major muscle groups the next week. Reciprocating Saw Feature - Cord - If you buy a corded version, make sure you get one that has a detachable cord.

Surely our scientists know more about chemistry that nature does,
so surely they should be able to come up with some far better for our
skin than any of these natural oils and butters you read about.
They come in a variety of distinct colors and possess the ability to
dry 40% faster than other similar face cloths. Common ingredients in natural and organic skin care products and their uses:.

They can simply be constructed of cardboard boxes and
aluminum foil. That special graduate in your life will think of you every time they use that
slow cooker in their college dorm. Rinse and soak the beans
in a pot or large bowl covered with 3-4 inches
of cold water.

Examples are : A Heartful of Love, Be Mine,
Be My Valentine etc. Then put your family video up there ON PRIVATE - so that only your family can see the video.

The staff person I talked to thought it would be best for me to come into the
store so that I could review their whole list of birthday party crafts, each with a different cost.

Those who are "melanin-challenged" often need skin care products for sensitive skin, particularly if they spend a great deal of
time in the sun. A beaten egg or egg yolk hydrates dry skin.

Children's skin is very sensitive and vulnerable, that's why it
requires for a special baby skin care.

high setting will make it cook faster, which is for only 3
to 4 hours.
