Here's a picture of my results. I had the camera set on full manual and left the settings the same for each picture. Very happy with these!

Those are the exact same ones I used. I love them...

Thanks, Rookie19. I have been looking for reliable warm led lights. I will try these.

I got rid of my crappy power king tow max (blow max) tires and replaced them with a set of Sailun S637's. No comparison between the two. The tow max were light and flimsy where the sailuns were heavy, thick and just looked like a tire for a big rig. Looking forward to putting them to the test as we are camping Easter weekend 😄

That's why I used 3/16" small head pop rivets.

Installed a matching Fantastic vent cover over the only vent FR didn't include one on.
This one got the optional bug screen and I'll be ordering two more now.

Put dry lube on all the slide rails.

Hello, I never heard of that brand. I am in the market for a new set for my 5ver, what size tire do you have and are these D rated?

Flushed the AF out of the lines and filled the water tank and added bleach will drain and flush after work tomorrow.

Found a few loose screws and faucet connection, all tight now.
Checked all of the outlets for power, one needs to be diagnosed.
No water leaks noted as well as no intruders found.

Added another circuit and put 2 outlets down low on it. Hated the outlets up high so everything hangs down from under the cabinets....





Hung the clock to make use of the void between the cabinet doors. Used a aluminum plate behind it so its not relying on the screws alone.



Got my spare Directv SD box wired up. Using a diplexer I hid in the wall. Sorry, pic blurry....



The fridge drain crumbled to pieces, so I managed to get a piece of clear tubing up there without pulling out the fridge, ::happy dance:: Just need to order the drain plug cap now cause that's long lost.

We have the same idea for the clock.
I be a little concerned with the plastic tubing melting.

Finally got around to addressing the water filled exterior flood lights (one of them finally quit working). I filed weep grooves in the bottom of the lenses. Looking at the design of the lights base, I was pretty sure that wasn't going to be enough...so I pulled out the drill and put small holes in the bottom of the bases too. Good thing I did...water shot out like a sprinkler got turned on!

I considered sealing the lenses in place instead, but I am happy with this route. I MAY have to clear out the holes every year or two...so be it.

started de-winterizing. found out that the water filter was mounted in a way that you had to angle it to take it off and spilling water all over the floor. so we repositioned it and can now get it off by dropping it straight down. also mounted TV, bought a splash guard for the shower. It is a needed item since I got the floor wet running the shower to get the antifreeze out of it. gonna try a vinyl shower curtain also behind the one that came in the rv. Will finish up the water tomorrow night and pray the weather is a bit better than forecast to take it out.
