Herk, none of those sound like camping supplies or necessities, unless you are trying to attract nerds like bugs to a bug zapper

Hose hangers in forward bay

Hey, OC (and others) -

I'm thinking about putting a hose hanger for my white hoses in the forward bay, behind the landing gear bar. However, I'm a bit worried that the rear 'wall' is pretty thin. Will it hold a hose hanger and hoses without ripping through the 'wall' panel?

Can't weld or saw a single piece of it, so it is WAY out of my area of unknown expertise.

Since I finally got an off day, I was going to install a Jack antenna but couldn't stand it anymore and replaced a hot water valve and kitchen faucet in my house. I'm so sore from bending, twisting, grunting, groaning, cussing, etc. I see why plumbers charge so much!

No, just used pan head wood screws that fit in the keyhole slots. Hung there for 2 yrs now. If it falls down, I will put stove bolts and washers/nuts on the back side. So far, so good.

Made a major change today, switched the original Coleman Mack thermostat with a new digital Coleman Mack thermostat. Pretty complicated cutting 6 wires and hooking them up to the new thermostat even though the wires were the same color on both stats. Took all of 10 minutes. Will have to rest the remainder of the afternoon.

So other than the fancy display and the black color, what does it do the the OEM one does not? Was yours broken?

Can't believe it took you 10 minutes!

Did TOWTA have to read the instructions for you?

Original one worked fine, just wanted the digital display. New one allows setting temperature for both heating and ac individually and activates on a 1 fluctuation of the temperature.

BTW, TOWTA doesn't even know it's been changed. She hasn't even been in the camper to notice. YET!

Herk, both the old and new are black. Mounting holes are exactly the same also.
Has the hi lo fan control also just like the Honeywell I changed in the old camper except this new one doesn't have a battery.

I used the battery to check the operation of a trolling motor.
