Another good idea. If I wasn't so tight /broke I would have one. 7 ft ones are expensive.

If we are talking about ladders, I have a 15' that folds down to 5"X 20"X 36". It was a little spendy at a $145, but works good. Can carry it in the basement if wanted, but I made a space in the garage. it works good to get up on my roof to check things out.

I was quoted $100 per tire if bearings were needed $80 if not.

Like to never got it out, SO, had to take the tires off the old 2000 18 hp with a blown motor and put the turf tires on the old one and the knobbies on the new one. Now to make a front bumper and add a trailer hitch for the rear so I can put a 2" ball in it and move Mardy's trailer around. As the boys say, have to "Dunnize" it so it is more versatile.

BTW, changing (4) 10" tires is a REAL BIT**! Too bad Cub Cadet didn't put lug nuts on the new one like the old one.
Purchased a Kubota Zero Turn mower last year for our two acres of grass. Cut my mowing time in half. You need to look at one of those for you next mower.

Had considered one for the last 2 yrs and just didn't like the handles and as I use it for more than mowing. This Cub has a 16" turn circle which is just fine, we had all the trees and stumps removed. Took less than 45 minutes for our 1.48 acres and wasn't going all that fast as the whole yard is ROUGH.

Tiny worthless 80mm factory fan.

Nice mounting panel in upper compartment.

Fan mounted.

Wired fan and temp controller.




2008 2500hd Duramax
2015 Columbus 320RS
2016 nights camped "0"
2015 nights camped "34"

So can you see the temp controller from the inside? Wasn't sure if you wired one inside, would be neat though. I have to do the fan mod for my 2015 Dometic, stock one is so darn loud.

It could be controlled from the inside, just have to extend the wires.
The probe length may be the hindrance.
A temp probe with longer wires could be purchased.

when I have more time I'll move it to the other end of the upper fridge housing and controller will be above fridge.

When we start using it I'll have to find the right spot for the probe and fan on / off settings.

Turbs will be interesting to see it but I have to do the fan mod at least this season that noise is so bad. Can not wait to see it when you get the digital reader inside

I ordered 30 ft right angle twist lock cords for both my trailers, didn't like the way the weight of the cord hung on the plug. Also got 2 adapters so I can use the old screw on twist locks for extensions if need be.

Ordered a coleman roadtrip lxe for my florida Windjammer. Since it was all one order I went ahead and got a white hose and a right angle hose connection, and a pressure regulator for the florida rig.

Now I need to go to the lumber yard and get treated 2x10's and 1x10's for leveling and jack and stabilizer pads.
