Did you get it figured out? Do you have the TST system or some other brand?

I'm going to build a desk today!

Well first, I am going to deliver a bunch of furniture to a young couple who are living near here (sofa, love seat, chaise, dining room table, chairs, and a dresser). He's stationed here and she just moved here from Michigan or Wisconsin or somewhere. They've been renting furniture. So our old furniture will be good for them. Saves them so money and gets it out of my house- it's a win, win!

Headlights

I’m all about lighting. After driving my Forester on an E-450 Chassis at night, I looked into options to improve the headlights. The existing headlight bulbs were just OK at best, I replaced the bulbs with Sylvania Silver Star Ultra’s and while an improvement, was not overly impressed. I investigated further options and stumbled on these YouTube Videos. Video 1 Video 2

I purchased a set and installed them yesterday. I also made sure they were aimed properly. It was a very easy install.

I waited until dark turned the headlights on and went for a ride. All I can say is WOW, what a difference. Nice and crisp light and plenty of it. I purposely drove on some highways and urban roads for an hour and not once was flashed for bright lights.

I bought them on ebay and although pricey, they were half again more than the UltraStars. They are supposed to last some 40 to 50,000 hours which is a great deal more the Sylvania’s as well.

Time will tell and will wait for “bad” weather for the next test. So far though,

So just ordered a pair of these...supposed to fix that!

Mine arrived yesterday, hoping they will help! Next trip is in 2 weeks, will find out then!

Got the corplast put backup under the RV, what a job. In the 90's, too dang hot to work this hard. Didn't see any obvious wear blocks, may be under the carpet, so hot in the unit. Going to take my gen set out there to power one of the A/C units. I'll did deeper into it when I can cool things down a bit. So dang frustrating. Thanks for the photos, at least I know what I'm looking for.

They work!!! I've had 2 sets, 1 X-TENDED set for our old Lacrosse wide axle and 1 regular set for our Sanibel because I liked them so much.

Dog house insulation

Insulated the dog house on the a/c and testing it out this weekend. So far we have a 10-degree differential (86 F. outside). Tomorrow will be a better test yet . . .

Did you install the LED bulbs in the stock halogen light housings? I wonder if the brighter light will cause a lot of glare for oncoming drivers. I had that problem when I tried HID bulbs in the stock headlight housings on my F-150 and ended up retrofitting HID projectors. It made a HUGE difference in the light and with the great cutoff on the projectors they don't create glare for oncoming drivers.

Have your DW or a buddy drive the opposite way on a dark road to make sure. If you get other drivers flashing their high beams at you, you know its a problem.
