Got the Tireminder TPMS installed and set up. Reasonably straight forward. Added 1\2 ounce of weight to the rims opposite the valve stems for balance. While installing the booster, I noticed that the battery hot leads as well as the propane line were rubbing on the frame. I used some old gas hose and tie wraps to make protectors for them.

Bought and installed a Danby washing machine. Top loader, but lid folds up for low clearance. Very quiet. Spins water out really well. Now to find a dryer.

Thanks! Yep, Danby 9cuft. It's been sitting in the hole for a couple weeks and I've been monitoring the temps. Constant 35 fridge and -10 freezer. And it recovers faster when you open the door. Secured it this weekend.

Home Depot and Walmart have them ship-to-store, mine came from Walmart.

Nothing to the camper but I got it a new TV. The F-150 was 600# overloaded when the entire family camps. The new F-250 has twice as much payload but the 6.2L gas engine sure is thirsty in comparison to the 5.4L.

Not to the camper, but my TV. I could never get the old brake controller, a Tekonsha Envoy, to act right. It either tried to throw me through the windshield, or apparently didn't help much at all. The initial application felt good, but didn't apply well after that. Plus, when set per Tekonsha instructions the gain was turned up near maximum. I'm thinking that just like turning a stereo up to max once past 85% funky things start to happen.

So I finally talked myself into a new Tekonsha P3. From all the reviews I've read it's going to be just the trick to get the fiver stopping like it should. I'm headed to the mountains in October, so it's time.
