As I read more of HERKS's postings I find that we think very much alike. Totally agree with the wheel bearing issues as more is better, also keeps the HUB cavity from condensating and rusting when filled with grease. As for the dual batteries I just applied a similar mod to the toyhauler. Didn't trust the dependancy on one battery that has to run the electrics as well as start the generator. So I installed a marine battery switch and added a second battery (a group 27 deep Cycle). Its wired to the hauler while the other can supplement it as well as start the generator. for inovative thinking and/or using ideas from the boating world. Keep the great ideas coming...

Like Herk7769 mentions there are many discussions on LED lighting. I got mine from a vendor on eBay (in China) and am very happy. I only got the bulbs and kept my fixtures.

I have an LCD TV but never watch TV when dry camping or boondocking. I guess I could with an inverter... but TV is not my cup-o-tea when camping.
