How did you clean and seal? What products and procedure did you use?

Thanks;

Hmmm? I Just take the back off, take out the old battery, put in new one, done. Easy peasy.

You won’t do that very easy with an iPhone, unless its a really old one.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

Here's a link to the magnetic door stop - seems like such a small thing, but what a pleasure it is not to need to latch the door! I left the original "T" latch at the bottom of the door just in case of high winds, and mounted this magnetic door stop at the top of the door where you don't even notice it.

The link: Everbilt 3 in. Satin Nickel Magnetic Doorstop with Catch-16096 - The Home Depot
Question about the latch, something I never new existed but is so smart. Do you have pics of the install? Did you have ti mount the one part on the trailer wall? Im always leary of drilling into the sidewall

Thanks

apparently I have to repair the roof on a 3 month old trailer which is pulling out of the side track and repair the cabinet which has pulled off the cabinet today.


dealership local is backed up by 2 months and won't get me in.
trailer will be in storage by then for the winter.

Finally got it registered with NYS DMV. Needless to say I got shafted. The plates from my old trailer were registered incorrectly so we could not simply transfer them to the new trailer. Had to surrender them and get new plates. The issue is that NYS does not give registration refunds on trailers and they do not prorate registrations. So I lost the registration that was still good through 12/31/17 and the new registration is only good through 12/31/17 but I had to pay for a whole year.

thought I could be fleeced and not kissed in doing it.

I made up this, for parking at home. It's plugged into a 20A outlet anyway and this is an easier cord to deal with (and doesn't have a connection laying in the dirt).

A camper cord where I cut one end long, and one end short. On the long end (not shown) I put a female 30A connector so I had a 30A extension cord. On the short end, I put a 20A connector for use with a normal extension cord. The plug was expensive ($12 maybe?), but was the only one that seemed that it'd handle the HUGE cable.

Started removing items we added to the camper... Looking like an upgrade is coming. We will get the final word this week. So to be for sale, 30 amp PE EMS (plug in), possibly Anderson levels and 30f to 50m amp dogbone.

Nice job. I just bought the same thing for the same reason- it's a lot easier to run a high quality extension cord than it is to run my 50amp cord.
