Trailer Hitch Installation on Honda Odyssey

Actually, part of the reason went thru the journey of DIYing was also because of this drill – Installing Trailer Hitch. Again, did the huge amount of search the web and youtube video to know what hitch fits odyssey, how to install, and ordered the ramp, hitch at Amazon and tried to install it.

As usual, everything was smooth in YouTube, while there are so many dumb challenges at my end. All the video suggested me doing with 2 or more people, but I don’t have that luxury – no one in my house can help – so brought out home various size of boxes and used those to balance and attached one hole after another hole. Also, used Ratchet Socket Wrench to installed it but it only went into few rounds and half tightened. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

So used my own ‘impact’ drill with socket but no luck -it was so weak only to make few more twists/advances, then learned that I need Impact Wrench ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

As it was already evening, I had to leave the hitch as ‘not to fall off’ level and Amazoned overnight delivery ๐Ÿ™‚ – This must be the Copang experience I hardly ever had ๐Ÿ™‚ and magically package arrived at next day morning 6AM.

However, when Impact Wrench arrived tried to use the Ratchet socket but learned this doesn’t fit Impact Wrench and actually it is not recommended to be used with Impact Wrench anyhow ๐Ÿ˜ฆ haha – so had to order another long Impact Socket set for Impact Wrench with same day delivery – ha ๐Ÿ™‚

Finally, all the bolt and nuts are 100% tightened – so wondered a bit on setting the Torque but as the car is old and I suspected some of miss-treading is there during install, thought this is good enough for me ๐Ÿ™‚

At the end dirty hands with some scratches, series of Amazon orders, and crazy searches on YouTube and Bing (Yes I work for Microsoft haha) mission complished ~80%: Now I need to unbox and install the ordered bike rack ๐Ÿ™‚

One thing encountered after moving in current place in last summer was this place is hot in Summer ๐Ÿ™‚ – Part of it driven by Townhouse structure and also next door neighbor’s air conditioner vent was installed right next to the siding door of our place; hence opening the window/siding door never helped or even made worse in hot summer days.

After long thoughts and landing a plan to stay at this place for one more year, purchased expensive LG portable Air Conditioner. Now, the problem is how and where to install the vent, and making it worse, this home doesn’t have a horizontal or up-and-down windows, leaving the only option as installing the vent at siding door. (plus as a rental house had the solution shouldn’t impact the main structure of the house and should be easy to remove when season is over)

As all the portable air conditioner assumes up and down windows, had to find the solution to have vent at tall siding door, but luckily found there is something at Amazon for this.

However, this was not sturdy enough (PVC) or very loosely standing – likely because this is optimized for siding window – not turning out to be a long lasting option (had to do adjustments almost every time we turn the conditioner on) and also the default vent didn’t fit with LG’s outlet.

So had to take several actions

– Hand cut the vent to fit the LG outlet with knife and hand saw

– Buy and cut the 2×2 lumber and cut + make a rabbit cut at the bottom to fit into the door’s rail

Then forced to snug the vent kit between the door and inserted wood – but kit was still unstable as the door’s lock installed at the end of door wasn’t providing angled & straight support to the kit.

So bought one more 2×2 had it as a place holder at the door’s end and inserted the vent kit between 2x2s; worked well but vent kit was still dancing around and had tons of gaps to let air flow in various locations, and – as expected- 2×2 not being straight/square also generated sizable gaps between door and 2×2 when closed.

To solve these next set of troubles, drilled between the kit and 2×2 and screwed it to make it sturdy; adding one more layer of wood at outside to close the gap between door and 2×2, + applying weather stripping to seal the gap around the vent kit and 2×2 and also applied the weather stripes on inner frame gap (between the moving door and fixed door), and also cutting the 2×2 for security lumber as the lock will not work during the times we have this vent. ๐Ÿ™‚

Although not having ever been an engineer, reminded me engineering is all about problem solving ๐Ÿ™‚

Now the question is – shall I paint the woods to white to match or not ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks to this endless Pandemic and magical YouTube algorithm, I have came to try unusual things I hardly done before… (and Amazon wins as I end up ordering some tools….)

Starting with one floor mat deep cleaning per day at shower time while waiting for handy steamer to arrive..:)

You break it, we fix it – lived the life of ‘Bob the Builder’ today

– PC reinstall with USB media : found no USB thumb drive at the world of Cloud, so had to order Amazon’s same day delivery and made the USB repair/installation media and recovered a PC which turned to black screen upon every boot

As our gentleman in the house -who never sits straight while putting more weights on chairs- have more time at home with various chairs because of Pandemic, this meant my chair repairing skill goes beyond the wood chair repair

– Plastic chair with broken back: after failed attempt with Super glue, went to epoxy glue. As the broken part was highly visible part of chair, had to go with multiple sanding after the glue and spraying paint and coating with Polyurethane.

– Bent Steel folding chair with disjointed horizon bar: so after using hammer and bring back the bent part, the question was whether I am willing to go into welding (which I don’t have any tools…) so settled with steel epoxy…

– Office chair: This is the still one of the mystery need to solve – how can you rock the rolling office chair?! But our gentleman must have showed that skill before he broke the chair. Similarly my first attempt with Super glue didn’t last long, so attempted with epoxy glue, but as this doesn’t have much visibility I am not willing to go into sanding/coloring part..

All in all, total four items in my household got the treatment, Home Depot and Amazon was the winner and I enjoyed smells from various chemicals (and now I understand why they check the birth date when I purchased the spray can..)


Now another shortage…SPAM

SPAM shortage? Pandemic leads to production problems – Honolulu, Hawaii news, sports & weather – KITV Channel 4

Not a surprise that this is a critical news in Hawaii, but I came to this news after wondering why I couldn’t find SPAM at Costco and Walmart in last few visits. Found reasonable package at Amazon and ordered thru it..

At the end – this is all because of stupxx pandemic (now I hate this more and more….this had enough of us..) and Amazon continues to be the winner ๐Ÿ™‚

So pumped to taste this back! ๐Ÿ™‚ This was one thing I have looked around to get the taste again since 2005 as I have an emotional tie ofย  this with “Lonely dorm life in hot (in Summer) and cold (in Winter) days at Ames, Iowa from 1997 to 1998”

Anyhow, this soda was reintroduced after some hardcore fan’s movement aka “Surge Movement” and Coca Cola made it available from Amazon about 5 years ago…and finally.. I made a bold order recently and this just arrived at the day Red flag/Heat advisory went effective.

Still refreshing! (and my brain memory of ‘more citrus and less sugar than Mt. Dew” seems about right ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you Coca Cola!

(At then, there was no bigger area/event place in Des Moines than the arena in Ames, so every event happening in central Iowa was happening at Ames..)
