Over the weekend, installed 2 blue streak chemical dispensers and mounted the new grill on the beefed up swing arm. Click image for larger version

That is one sweet mod Tim! Does the grill swing around and store on/around the back bumper?

Radio & TV Signal Boosters

We usually get pretty good HD TV reception (we will see HOW good this weekend when we camp at a remote CG )

Saw this pop up ad for a new wineguard toy - anyone have any experience with it?

Winegard Rayzar Air Amplified TV Antenna

The one thing that REALLY needs improvement on our rig is radio reception! That wimpy antenna on the side is almost worthless and because of our setup, wiring to the TV Antenna is a no-go.

Anyone have any thoughts or ideas on boosting Radio reception by modding the current Radio antenna?

My antenna found a limb right away.. I covered the hole and put an eBay inside antenna on mine...it works pretty good. It was a strip type stick on I put inside the entertainment cabinet. I didn't want to drill holes in the cabinet. Good news...cheap and you can try the proposed area before committing. I think it was $5

Look like this is a new product as of June. Here on another forum is some information that you might like. I went with the Jack and have been very happy, but that doesn't mean I can't be happier. Let us know if you try it.

Thanks for the idea!
Sorry about your Antenna!

At least this did not happen to you
Average height of our coaches???

One thought about the replacement you got - I suspect it is not HD (and we have a HDTV)

This is what he have as a "reminder" for our antenna. When properly stowed, it lives on the handle to our wardrobe...when Antenna is extended it is hooked on the handle (you can buy these from Amazon et al - ours came from a F111 )

Re-installed the awning lock removed in Goshen when they replaced the motor. We're now ready to go whenever, wherever we decide except loading perishables.

Ordered a new kitchen window as the old one shattered for no apparent reason, only $400😡. Got a new electric griddle for $20, so I guess that balances out?

I ordered a small decal, in RED, 1" high letters, and placed it on the bottom of our RV door window (outside):

antenna down


Since putting the steps up, locking the door and folding the hand rail in is the last thing we do before towing, and placing it at that location puts it right at eye level, we are always reminded.

We use the King jack antenna head and it took us from 8 channels to 18 channels. About a 15 minute job to swap it out. CW messed up and shipped us two of 'em, so one is still sitting in the box it shipped in.
