Smile Well I did it

Went out and ordered my T12DDST on Tuesday, already having two mods done by the dealer I didn't want to screw with. Will pick up sometime in Jan and be on the road by 1 March I hope. When I finish with my nods. Thanks for the help. Now if I can just find the thread on using a drill to raise and lower the stabilizers.

A Metal battery box to hold two type 27 batteries and an Everline (sp) three outlet 12 VDC adapter. I figured to try that before I started screwing with my Blue Sea adapters. Nothing major as you can see, but will be ordering Sunpower line solar system just before I pick up so I can get that hooked up. I just didn't want to screw up the first two.

Drill for stabilizers - just get the right sized socket (usually 3/4") and 3/8" drive adapter. Voila!

Congrats! We also bough a T12DDST this year, and have absolutely no buyer's remorse.

If you'd like to take a look, here is a link to the mods we've done to ours. A Frame Camper Mods - a set on Flickr
