Elbert

Elbert is the name that has found my U Haul CT 13. It is short for "Little Bitty Rolling Turd"! That was what my wife and son were singing the other night while out in it checking things out. The song in the movie "RV" is Big Ole Rolln Turd! So there you have it. My CT now has a proper name ELBERT!

He is sleeping on the carport until he gets his new window seals in the morning. I found a glass company here in Rome Ga that does heavy equipment and apparently they use the same seal for those. They are going to do the side windows and the door. I will let you know how they turn out. I will be rebuilding the screens later before spring camping time.

Thanks. The name is kinda like I don't know if I should have told that! But he is who he is.

It is most all original. It was missing the table pole, bunk bed poles, keys, ice box, and the PO has cut out under the seat for an AC window unit. So I have a mini fridge 110v that will go into the hole for the ice box, a window unit on my back porch that has a remote, and have bought a new pole for the table.

The water system was in sad shape so all new hoses for that and a gas regulator were all I have had to buy. I have a friend who is a locksmith that made the keys for me to fit the door.

If the weather holds he gets new window rubber in the morning!!!!

He even has these custom reading lights that I'm not sure he came with.

And a square D disconnect that will get a second beaker for the AC/fridge as soon as I get it dry when it rains.

Will need to upgrade the plug in for a 30 or 50 amp service.

Reading light is not original. All they came with was two fluorescent tube lights. One over the closet and one over the sink.

Still have those. The others are nice to be able to see with the extra light. Want to go to LEDs before I camp off the grid. That will not be any time soon, so for now they will stay as is.

While rolling Elbert back on to the carport tonight I failed to lower the roof vent cover. Well it does not take much to bust it into about 50 pieces! So time for a new fantastic vent cover!

I've seen the same thing happen with raised TV antennas on big rigs when they pull out of a campground and go under a tree or entrance arch. Big Crunch! Too bad for you, but you'll get it fixed for the better.
