Have also seen some other neat milestones. Probably of no significance to anyone but wanted to post.

|Had lunch someplace on 11/8/2013 and noticed this pickle|
This is a repair to the track for the privacy curtain which closes around the drivers cab on a Class A RV. Shortly after took to the road I somehow snagged the curtain on the drivers side (while it was in traveling position) and popped screw out. This fix should keep it secure as there is now a little "give" due to how did the repair.
Prior it was screwed into the cheap sawdust board by a tiny little screw. Now there is a longish bolt that goes through the floor of the little cabinet above the drivers door. The nut rests on floor of that compartment, which is suspended somehow over the bottom of the cabinet itself (i.e. it's a false floor of sorts). While this is not foolproof, it was an easier way to fix it compared to some other methods. I think the false floor also gives it some flex, some give, so it won't be apt to break again.
|Wonderful hardware store!|
In here they helped me find a proper bolt (based on sample I had). Was able to pick up another set of drill bits (couldn't seem to find the two sets that pretty sure I have with me someplace).
Again, felt good to support local stores, even more so after the tragedy they had!
|Tools of the trade|
|Washer and sealant|
|With bolt on|
Step 3A: Just picture of nut on. Notice how none of the bolt protrudes above the nut.
|All done! YAY|
