I did actually keep the package for the zip ties. Here's what I bought:

Wether they meet all of your criteria or not, they're good enough for me (for now, at least). I got another 450 miles out of them and none of the 4 has shown any sign of breakage. I think you all know me by now- I'll fess up when they let go. As to a temporary fix or long term plan, I'm still not sure. I do definitely feel like I'm in the...

Otherwise, I redid one of my favorite mods and hung a second shower head holder. The original one leaves the shower head just a touch shorter than I am. I lost this mod during one of my factory returns where they replaced my shower enclosure due to a crack in it.

Headed to Lowes to get 6' of #8-3 wire to install the new Progressive HW30C I got in the mail yesterday on eBay for $157 including shipping. Never be opened. Now to find a place to install it. Haven't figured out whether I'll install it before going to FL or wait so I have something to do down there.

Those are the correct type for outdoor use. However, just so you are aware they are UV resistant and not UV "proof" like the more expensive ones.

Good luck in your travels.

Thanks, Lou.

I also forgot that I picked up a few more lengths of gutter. The campground that I'm at in Vegas requires sewer hoses to not be on the ground. I previously tried using my sewer tube "drawer" but the end caps made it lay funny. I actually have wanted these for a while because when staying for 1-2 weeks, I've been killing grass with my sewer hose laying on it.
