Long before Wikipedia or even Webster a steam engine was operated by who? An engineer.

Props to engineers of all types! I have an engineer's mind, but I love me some diesel-electric power, too.

Being a P.E., and also with a deep love of trains, I see no need to argue, but I'd like to point out if one goes much further back in time - early 1300s - that's where engine'er first appeared. Then, it meant quite directly the operator of the engine, and engine at that time was a military engine or what we refer to as siege engines or siege machines today! Because the operator of the siege machine was quite often the creator too, engine'er came to refer to the "builder of military engines." I know that sounds strange today, but you also need to understand that engine is derived from ingenium which is also the root for ingenious!

Anyhow, what I did to our new camper today was work on fabrication of aluminum underbelly storage drawers!

I tried to remove the LED light from the fridge, but couldn't get the housing off. Going to wait till the weather is a bit warmer till I go out there and figure it out.

I hooked up a 12 Volt Meter today. I mounted it inside above my electrical panel and below the Fridge.

Now I know and can tell at a glance the state of the battery and if the convertor is charging it, etc.

To me, this should be a standard item on all RV's.

I walked across the road and opened the door to the motorhome. I entered and immediately started thinking of warmer days and venturing down the road. Soon reality sank in, my eyes welled up, and I headed back to the house. And that, my friends, is what I did (not to, but in) my camper.
