It always irritated me when connecting 90 degree brass fitting that the protector flap would get in the way. I add a square of velcro and now it stays out of the way while tightening or loosening

Not sure I follow the reason behind this. Doesn't the female side turn? Mine does. I rest the flap on the back of my hand and turn the inlet with my fingers.

I am tempted but there are several bad review/comments. I have a single, dial type, for refrigerator now but I suspect it is inaccurate.

What is your experience (or anyone else that wished to contribute) with this unit on:

Accuracy
How long it has worked well for you

Thanks for anyone who replys

Yes but the little lid keeps wanting to go back to its home and gets caught up with the hose and your hand.

X2 on doc73 answer... plus... it never stays in place (like on back of hand) but keeps rotating and hanging/twisting preventing turning easily.

In my opinion no good. I've bought 2 sets and had eventual failures with both. The 2 temperature sensors don't matcb each other. Off as much as 5 degrees. Have to constantly reset the unit.

This is my 3rd season with mine. I got it at the recommendation of someone else on the forum. I have had zero issues with it. I do remove all the batteries over the winter. It does recommend a specific type of battery (don't recall the type) for the in-fridge sensors, but I've been using regular old alkalines.

Just finished installing the new bathroom faucet, have to say it was the easiest one I've ever done. Also sewed canvas covers for the outdoor furniture and a vinyl tablecloth and bench covers for the picnic table.

What did you do to your camper today?

Picked up the new tow vehicle this morning. Installed the extending power tow mirrors and the weather tech floor liners. Not sure why a DRW didn't come standard with extending mirrors, but neither did my 2500 so I added the same brand to this one.

Also stopped by the body shop and got an estimate and a place in line to replace the rockers and one cab corner on it (knew that going into it, but such a good deal I still couldn't pass it up).

Over the course of a couple of weeks I have added...
1. Alfa Wifi Camp-Pro system, ran antenna thru roof in cabinet beside door.
2. Disk brakes system
3. Joy Rider Shock system
4. Change out our 18K Pull Rite to a 24K Pull Rite
and done a complete inspection and repaired or replaced any little things that where lose or broken. Now my pockets are empty but RV is good to go.
