Installed my 50 amp hardwired into My 320rs columbus.
1 hour 10 minutes, not quite as easy as the 30 amp Rbertalotto Bought from me

Yes, it was extremely easy to hard wire. And then I took the nice 30 amp plug and socket you had on it, along with a 50' piece of 10/3 I had hanging around and made a nice 50' 30 amp extension cord....
Once again...Thanks!

Got the basement drawer emptied and the cable tether attached to the drawer and anchored into the floor. Miraculously it works as planned. Was more work reloading the drawer than doing the cable. Also found some water dripping down from the bathroom, turns out one of the stupid FR clamps was not tight. Cut the damned thing off and put a regular hose clamp on it. I hate those damned FR clamps.

To much stuff? At least it was a worth while mod as you found the leak before everything turned to landfill canidates

OC, since I can't pm you on this phone, would you care to post the gas shock numbers you used for storage doors?

x2...I got a Viair 90P earlier this year and very pleased with it!

My only mod was to cut the wire and add about 15-feet of extra wiring so it would reach all the way from my truck battery to the rear/right trailer tires. (And I keep a digital tire gauge in the Viair bag...for some reason those gauges are always impossible to find.)

Received a few orders for bits and pieces: -
Sensar wingman TV antenna upgrade (on sale for $20 at CampingWorld)
Camco bug screen for furnace vent (too lazy to make my own)
Some wire "helper shelves" for the pantry and kitchen cabinets
and a few other consumables

Now to just "bite the bullet" and order my JT strongarms (will have one pair for sale after), and some scissor jacks (once I've measured the suspension sub-frame, to make up some brackets)

Checked the water hose leak I fixed yesterday and it's still dry. TOWTA says we're just about completely loaded to go to FL. Weather here is much better, but when the high for the day is in the 40's, we will be leaving either that day or the next.

We were going to leave for So Texas yesterday but storms came rolling in and are still with us. 6"+ of heavy rain with flash flooding, more on the way, trip postponed. Going to wait it out till the weather clears from central to So Texas.

Ordered the strong-arms. Will see if I get time to go over to the storage lot this weekend, to measure up the sub-frame for scissor-jack brackets, otherwise it'll likely wait until I install the strong-arms (maybe following weekend if they've arrived in time)

Never been to Rondeau PP. What's a good area for an electric site for larger trailers?
