I de winterized. Check out everything from lights to brakes to tires. Then used and or ran all the things in the camper. Added a battery voltage and amp display. I rewired the 12 volt side so the charger will display the amps it is charger through the display, and so when I'm dry camping it shows the Amos I'm drawing and what the inverter draws. Change out one ceiling light to led, was not impressed so I'm back on the hunt for led light. I need something that will be bright, last a long time, and be quality and a decent price. Any thoughts

EBay for LEDs. That's where I get mine. Make sure they are 5050.

Anyone know where I can find these? This is one that doesn't work, but not the melted one. This one is from the bunkhouse. Same light though.

Ordered from another local dealer. $13 each for the light and fixture. I went ahead and ordered an extra. Got a call yesterday that they are in.

Several things. Added a sprayer to the kitchen faucet. Changed the location of the false wall under the bathroom sink. Added labels to the slides, I was constantly pushing the wrong button for a slide. Now I know which is which. Added shoe cubbies to keep them off the floor

Just wired my led tricolor under the awning- thought about it for quite a while, realized the 120v power was 120v in- 12volt 3amp out. I had a few 12 volt cigarette adapter cords for garage handheld work lights. never used them in car so cut the cigarette lighter end off and wired it to the wires already there so they do work off the switch and change colors with the remote.

Got back in town from Texas today and saw that the ups / fedex / usps guys had been busy this week.

Did a test run of the satellite. All is good.

Unpackaged a gallon of 303 and 6 32oz bottles of the 303 speed detailer.

Also received the skimmer door for the pool....

Baseball games are cancelled tomorrow and moved to a one day tournament on Sunday. Will spend the day tomorrow out in the shop applying the 303 to the roof and finishing the quick wax / speed detail. Also gonna clean and organize the basement storage.

Also, have one of the new Andersen ball cups on the way. Will allow some forgiveness when hitching.

Ocean Lakes in less than a week. Can't wait!
