Did you get the rear camera installed? If so, what are you using?

There is just enough room between the screen and the window for these stick on paper blackout shades.

I also tried my hand at tinting.
Can you provide a link or manufacture &/or part number for those shades you installed? Tks.

No... not yet. I took the camper to a friend of mine to have a hitch put on the back and didn't get a chance to install the camera before he needed it. Currently en route to Taipei Taiwan so it won't happen this week either!

I bought the Furion wireless observation camera.

Took my winter Adco cover off and found this.

Got a couple of dropped areas and heaves. I put a rake across one to show how pronounced it is.
No leaks but the roof has to come off, sheeting and truss repair.

Got an estimate for snowload damage. $10,500CAD.
Full coverage with insurance. $250 deductible.

Replaced the worthless original kitchen faucet with one without a sprayer per TOWTA's request (order).

That's the one I have. Used on one short and one long trip. Really like being able to see what is behind me, as well as see my bikes on the rear of the Surveyor.

Just curious why you went with solid blue vs an RGB strip that can produce a whole bunch of colours.

I hope that this won't be a 15 foot bug attractor for you.

I had a read through this and found it interesting.

Investigated my intermittent cooling problem with my refrigerator. Found main 12v line not tightened in its terminal and all 12v grounds loose. Hopefully this fixes the problem.

We are adding a hitch setup for a swivel wheel, so I wanted to be able to keep an eye on the cart when we take it.

I'm over Edmonton Alberta right now and just got a text from my friend adding the hitch.... all done!

De-Winterized the plumbing system in the Sunseeker. After I filled the HWH, I put that and the Fridge/Freezer on propane to check that system. Water got hot, fridge cooled down to 38 degrees within a couple hours.

We installed two Fan-tastic vent covers, replaced the Domrtic 300 with a new 310. Great upgrade and very easy to install. Also replaced the factory shower head with a Oxygenics, can't wait to try it neek week. Fix a couple pleated shades so they will stay up.

Just make sure you either blow Toilet lines dry or run Pink stuff thru the Dometic 310, as the valves will crack if water freezes in the toilet valve, we learned that this year and we keep a spare valve on hand now just in case. Part can be found on Amazon for $30'ish

Love this idea. We have almost the same exact layout . Removal of 7 Dinette very difficult?

Absolutely not. Took about 10 minutes. We removed the cushions, removed the pucks on the floor for the table legs, removed the luan under the cushions, and the whole frame came out in one piece backs and all. It only had about 6 screws holding it in. I was afraid that I'd have to dress up a bunch of screw holes but there were only 4 holding it to the wall.
