Fastener Came Loose
9:30am - One of Scampy's cabinets had a rivet come loose. This rivet comes thru Scampy's roof. When the rivet is installed, the shank expands and that expansion is supposed to hold the cabinet in place.
However, one rivet did not hold. And now, one section of the cabinet is hanging a bit loose. One of these special rivets could be purchased from Scamp Trailer. I felt that another solution was required.
I bought a stainless hex bolt to use in place of the rivet and will install that bolt later today.
Do you see the hole where
the bolt will come thru?
11:15am - Shelter Island
We've just arrived at Shelter Island. That lovely place across the bay from Downtown San Diego. From Scampy's door is a lovely view of San Diego's skyline.
On the way here, we stopped off at the South Shore Boat Ramp to use the dump station.

3pm - Solar charging
Our Renogy solar system was hooked up for the first time today. It took a little less than 2-hours to generate 1000 watts for Scampy's battery.
A hydrometer check proved that the battery is getting charged. We want to stay here at Shelter Island using the Renogy as long as the Sun is bright!
Renogy - On The Job!
4pm - Shelf support bolt installed
With the help of a parking lot neighbor, the bolt that replaced the rivet was installed. The neighbor held a wrench to the head of the bolt. I was inside Scampy and ran a locknut up the bolt.
Thank goodness for that neighbor!
5pm - Mission Beach
Police informed that when Scampy and Honda are connected, that violates the 30 foot maximum rule. So, we moved to Mission Beach.
