Moved the electric rear stabilizer jack switch from the front battery compartment on our 5th wheel to the rear panel on the side just above the rear jacks....much easier to watch them extend and retract now.....next, will be installing awning lights.

Installed a 50 amp surge protector which I was kind of reluctant to do but like a home, any park is subject to voltage problems which could damage the coach as well as my valuable electronics inside.....it may never happen though now self insured so to speak if only for a year as what is the warranty on the device....afterwards, it's a crap shoot again.

You can't win either way. Operate it from the outside and you tear off a door. Operate it from the inside and you hit a tree.

Very true. I will probably use the remote for extending and switch inside for retracting.

I installed a shelf in an excessively large cabinet that had no shelf. I also packed, and will be hooking up on Tuesday, for departure to Daytona on Wednesday. Buggity, Buggity, Buggity.

Installed the same hardwired 50 amp Surge Guard surge protector in our 2014 Silverback 33RL as soon as we got it home last October....also installed the remote to go with it in my control panel so I can watch voltage and amperage on each line.....we had had the 30 amp in our Jayco TT that we traded.....just feel safer with them to protect everything.

Ugh, you suck. I'm supposed to be doing the same thing. Good thing my dealer is taking their sweet time.

Installed 1 of 3 Fan-Tastic Vents. Ran the Onan generator for an hour and made some measurements for future projects.

What I did

CHF. Also split the cable in, at the antennae booster to be able to hook the satellite up to the cable in on the motor home.

I added a sub woofer and new speakers to my sound system in my 2015 wildcat Max and it sounds much better and hook my sound system up to my tv on aux 3 the dealer told me it couldn't be done works good
