Finally got around to mounting one of the battery voltage monitors. Now to find time to mount the one on the front by the front storage door.

What did you do to your camper today?

Looks professional, OldCoot. How did you get that in there?

Just marked out the hole size and cut the rectangle out with my pocket knife. Hooked the wires to the 12v outlet below.

The wife didn't like the hitch bars in the outside storage. "Too greasy." So I installed a hitch bar holder based on the fence post stinky slinky holder. 2" PVC pipe and end caps. Painted it black to disappear under the camper. Since it's empty running down the road, it doesn't have to be attached too robustly.

Also moved my FW tank drain. It was located exactly in between the two axles - a real pain to get to. Piped it out by the gray tank.

Very nice job on both mods.. Any photos on where you mounted them under the trailer. I am ready to add the fence post to mine in a few days but now I like this idea as well for the spring bar storage. I keep mine in a rear utility storage area so no grease on the nice stuff but I like this idea better.

Refresh my memory on the in-line volt meter. It shows the volts or amps being used or what is being put out by the battery?

And you just tie it into the hot/ground of an outlet?

Shows volts only-battery condition. Yes.

I re-purposed an old camp chair bag to hold the Equalizer bars in the front pass through storage.
