Very curious what the annual inspection costs?
Also exactly what is covered. Deductible?

May I ask where you bought these shelves? This is a GREAT solution.

What did you do to your camper today?

Replaced defective rear view camera.

Around $200 per yearly inspection. Mine is called RV Warranty Forever.

That's the one he has. He sent me the letter that he got for the inspections or maintenance with a checklist. He bought the Roo from Dodd RV in Portsmouth, VA.
So to me it isn't necessarily sponsored by Forest River like the impression he was given. But still according to the website posted above with no deductible it works for some I suppose.

Also got some storage items, include a long skinny one to hold all our pudgy pie irons and marshmallow sticks.

We take it out on Friday for its for first run. I'm sure my list will get longer. I'm hoping to get to Costco this week to get a mattress topper!
I bought one last year and couldn't wait to have the grandkids watch the show!

Interesting I don't see the air conditioner on the list. Not covered?

Black tank flush on the second black tank.

1/2-installed my power awning tie-down poles.

Started wiring for LED lights.

Plexiglass for the bottom 1/2 of our screen door for baby proofing.

Oxygenics showerhead.

Watts water regulator instead of the $9-cheapo ones.
I am interested in knowing how you attached the pexiglass to the screen door, if possible can you show pictures. I like to do same to both parts upper and bottom for when the air is on not to keep the door closed, I like light, closing the door makes it darker inside. I want the daylight to come in, also have a dog that might break the screen. Tks

Basically I bet same thing as Good Sam or EasyCare, but what I found out is the labor to remove a slide in order to fix it is not covered and any sort of water damage needs to go thru insurance, stinks but they get away with not covering those

Ok, so wasn't done today but...

Saturday went to Camping World and filled three carts with what we need for the new to us Coach.

One of the carts had two comfy chairs for DW and I so probably could have fit in two if I tried

Not having one before this we needed pretty much everything - drinking water hose, sewage hose, electrical adapter for plugging in at house, some nice moonshine jar lights for the outside of awning (had to get those since I can't drink anything other than moonshine - get migraines from anything else), pads for levelers, etc. Actually kind of fun when you need almost one of everything.

Of course the corner of the basement and a large section of the garage is full of stuff now - Coleman grill I got with my Cabela's points etc.

Hopefully this coming weekend will be nice - planning on bringing it home to do the cleaning and start loading her up and getting initial stuff organized.

I bought this one, the Life Is Good one that's on my Crusader has seen better days

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B06XJ...st_dp_summary#

I removed all Dealer Stickers the minute I got it home, removed them from my truck as well. I am not a fan of free advertising especially since they are not making my payments.

"Charge Wizard" location

gectisme:

I've purchased a PD4655 to replace my WFCO and am going to be installing it soon. Is the "Charge Wizard" supposed to be mounted inside the converter panel or was that just a personal preference?

I was thinking that I'd mount the wizard on the wall next to or above the converter for ease of access.

Unplugged, removed tire cover's, checked tires, pulled it up from the back yard to the side of the house. Was planning on removing the cover, but the gusty winds from yesterday's storms began to blow in, and prevented me from going any further.

You can mount it any where you like, there is ~3' of a pigtail connected to it. I just found a place that was out of the way but still easy to get to it and was able to see the LED.

They call it a charge wizard, it's a switch and LED that allows you to change to any of the 4 charge modes manually. The LED shows which of the 4 modes the charger is in.

Finished wiring in the potable water pressure transducer. Furnace decided to crap out while I was doing so, not related to the transducer work.
