Which ones did you get? The ones in my first link or the second?

I installed the larger 24-5050 SMD lights and they are a huge improvement over the first ones. A bit whiter and a whole lot brighter. 4 bulbs in 2 pancake fixtures is enough to very nicely light up the main living area in my TT.

Started looking for a trailer shop, wheel shop, and somewhere to get work done on the truck.

Trailer - going to have my leaf springs replaced and explore the cost of adding shocks.

Wheels - think I've finally decided on commercial 17.5" wheels and going up to LR H tires.

Truck - think I'm going to put on Bilstein shocks and need new tires all around. And am going to have someone figure out metal valve stems for my inner duals. I have some funky rubber ones there now.

Took the new fifth wheel out for it's first trip over the weekend, which was obviously a bit of a shakedown.

No major issues: -

The dinette table is very unstable/wobbly, so need to get that fixed/replaced under warranty

The iRV66 stereo/DVD player audio keeps cutting out, which I understand is a known issue, so will get that replaced.

Only other thing is that the brakes don't seem as powerful as I'd like, on max bias they don't seem even close to locking up, not sure if I need to get them looked at.

While on the trip did a few minor things: -

Re-adjusted the wedge on the Revolution hitch and torqued it properly
Bought/installed curved step mats
Installed the toilet roll holders in both bathrooms
Cut/installed foam mattress topper for both bunks
(And decided I'll cut some foam topper that we have to size for the master too)
Set the new water pressure regulator
Bought a sewer hose extender (the drain was in the stupidest spot at the state park)
Ordered a TV mount for rhe master bedroom (we already have a suitable TV that we can reuse)
Ordered an oxygenics shower head

I thought about installing TPMS, but haven't looked into it much.

Contacted Dometic about replacing my POS a/c unit. Others on this forum have been successful so I'm giving it a shot. Wish me luck.

How was the install ?
The install was very quick and easy. It came with 3 sets of instructions, which I read before starting. Took me maybe 15 or 20 minutes. I put them on the rubber stems that are on my trailer. Many recommend having metal valve stems installed so we'll see how it goes with the rubber stems.

I left the monitor on overnight to see if I have any leakage with them but haven't checked yet this morning.

Oh, one more thing, I got the flow thru sensors, I couldn't see needing to use the allen wrench and take the sensor off everytime I needed to add air.

The best price I could find was Vulcan Tire Sales, $229 with a 3 year warranty and the signal repeater included.
