Installed a volt meter above my tank gauges. I wired it in on the circuit board so that when you hit the Batt button it also reads out on the gauge.


Also I removed the halogen bulb in the fridge and installed 2 flat LEDs. Nice bright white light now. The only incandescent bulbs left are the bathroom vanity.
Here's the flat LEDs I used.

OK guys, I'll tell you what I have done to my camper. I like to look at everything that might possible open in my camper, even if it has screws holding the door shut. After I opened it up, I saw a nice space in there that could possibly hold a lock box of some sort. I did put magnetic catches and knobs on the doors. I put a lock box with a lock in the area and am pleased with the final results.

What did you do to your camper today?

Dropped my Honda powered generator for my Columbus off at the "generator guru" to have the worthless 120v/240v floating neutral receptacle replaced and re-wired for either a 30 or 50 amp Rv plug whichever he can make work.

Finally got a little more done to my rear bumper storage/bike rack project.

The 'storage rack' remains permanent and is mounted to the frame brackets.
The rearward railing is adjustable and removable to accommodate different loads.

When I get the bike rack part manufactured, it will set flush with the storage rack when folded down to create a large level area that can be used for whatever. (I'm thinking nice away from home workbench)

Building the folding bike rack is next on the list. (when I get time)
It will be easily removable by pulling a couple pins when not needed.

The photo of the bike rack is of a factory rack. (not mine) I hope to make mine similar but more efficient.

Looks a little heavy to be toting around as an Rv generator?

How are the Onan Propane Gensets do they consume a lot of propane to operate and yes I know they run like $6,000 for a unit to run 50amps

No worries where I camp.
Private land.
Believe me when I say mine is the quietest.
