1 tbsp. vegetable oil
Sour cream, for drizzling (optional)

Spread the top tortilla with some nacho sauce and set a hot dog at one end. Roll up the tortilla around the hot dog. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

Most recently we decided to tear out the old carpeted funky stairs yesterday and put it some wood ones. Plus he added one more tread because the old stairs were really steep and we aren’t always going to be the young spring chickens like we are now! Ha Ha

They kind of lighten up the room a bit and are much easier to walk up and down. We don’t want it to be falling down steps in the RV!

Make a cool spot for the cats to lay and hide from Sangria our dog to. Just need to do some finish work and they will be all done.

We installed a Composting toilet.

In some systems, carbon additives such as sawdust, coconut coir, or peat moss are added after each use to create air pockets in the human excreta, improve the carbon-to-nitrogen ratio, and reduce potential odor. Most composting toilet systems rely on Mesolithic composting as well as retention time to destroy pathogens. A secondary composting of the end-product in another system is often used to "finish" the compost.

Composting toilets produce a humus-like end-product that can be used to enrich soil if local regulations allow this. A secondary stage is often needed to allow Mesolithic composting to further reduce potential pathogens.
Components

A composting toilet consists of two elements: a place to sit or squat and a collection/composting unit. The composting unit consists of four main parts:

storage or composting chamber
a ventilation unit to ensure that the degradation process in the toilet is predominantly aerobic and to vent odorous gases
a leachate collection system to remove excess liquid
an access door for extracting the compost

Construction

The composting chamber can be constructed above or below ground level and can be inside a structure or include a separate superstructure.

A drainage system removes leach-ate. Otherwise, excess moisture can cause anaerobic conditions and impede decomposition. Urine diversion can improve compost quality since urine contains large amounts of ammonia that inhibits microbiological activity.

Composting toilets greatly reduce human waste volumes through psychrophilic, thermophilic or mesophilic composting. Keeping the composting chamber insulated and warm protects the composting process from slowing due to low temperatures.

We took out the carpet and put in new flooring!

Made a big change and what an improvement. A lot of searching and finally found the perfect flooring for our 5th wheel. Took us 4 days total to finish it but it was worth it. Had to tear out the old carpet in living and kitchen and then the wood floor that covered part of the kitchen (thought that was going to be a chore) but it came out purity easy just had to trim it up at the edge of the cabinets the wood flooring went all the way under them. So here are some before and after pics, you can judge for yourself. I think we did a fantastic job. On top of everything we are living in here full time, so had to maneuver things around.

Okay, for me the first thing I did was take off the ugly wallpaper border, and the side panels on the windows.

Now for my furniture. We got rid of all the furniture except for the bed.

We first purchased a nice rocking leather recliner and a great Ashley double reclining high back leather sofa. Yes, they both fit nicely, but I wanted a bit more room.

Then I dismantled the big sofa ( my husband thought I was nuts ) and put the the two recliners together and made a love seat.

Then I took the center seat on the sofa and made a new chair/lounger. Purchased some leather to match it for the sides where they don’t cover it completely and I made big side pockets on both sides of the chair big enough to fit my laptop into. I put decorative nail heads along the sides of the pockets to match the foot stool I purchased to go in front of the chair. Turned out beautiful and my husband loves it. Gave us a lot more room.

We finally purchased our 5th Wheel with the perfect floor plan for us.

Alumascape 36ft with a Back living room, middle kitchen, and a front bedroom.

Why the Alumascape ?

Holiday Rambler Corporation is an American corporation which primarily manufactures recreational vehicles. It was founded in 1953. In 1961, Holiday Rambler’s introduction of aluminum body framing ushered in a new era of lighter, stronger and more durable recreational vehicles (RVs). This aluminum frame (Alumaframe) became the standard for lighter and stronger RVs for 40 years.
