Mine is attached to the motor end of the awning by drilling and taping a 3/8-16 ss bolt and ss nylock nut, but I came up with a design that does not require drilling the end cap. It just slips into the sunshade grove and slides all the way to the motor end.

Got my (2) 50' flat fw hoses and found out I could wind a 50' flat hose on the electric rewind reel. So I ended up with 125' of hose stored in less space than (2) regular hoses.
Top picture is original, 2nd is the 25' flat hose on electric rewind, 3rd is 50' on elec. reel and 25' and 50' on reels
4 picture is driverside basement packed and ready to go.

Service tech came out and replaced a connector going to the LED fridge light, now I can see inside the refrigerator.

Installed a volt meter behind the plastic on my panel. Only thing it's a .1 reading off. Measured with a digital meter shows 12.7 new read out shows 12.6, but what do you expect for $5.00 bucks on Amazon. After sitting for 24 hours. I have 2- 12 volt batteries installed so at least I know one is good......

Very Nice, GLJURCZYK, Which voltmeter did you get? And, how difficult was installation?

DROKŪ Ultra-small 2 Wires Voltmeter Guage White LED 0.36" DC 3.0~30V Digital Volt Meter Motorcycle Car Battery Tester 5/12V DC Voltage Check Detector. I think they went up to 6.95, Connected the plus and minus with a flat spade connector to the plus and minus of the board where the main battery ties into the board added 10" of wire so it will not interfere with opening the door, then used super glue to attach to the bottom to the window frame only. It is as thick as the window frame so it won't hit anything. Took about a half hr. to do, being I kept running for tools back and forth. It really reads great through that plastic. It is about the same size as the recess of the glass so it has plenty of space from my fuse block ran the wire up the side of the board....

Flowers in TX

We can credit Lady Bird Johnson with many of the wildflowers in Texas. I remember what a treat they were.
