Oh ya, You must do it parked along a highway like the guy in the video.
I have watched drivers ahead of me just cruze out of their lane and tag vehicles parked on the shoulder. OMG.

The switch, where we left off.

Cleaned the underside with alcohol, stuck on the LED tape.

About every foot attached with clear silicone.

Switch on!


Attachment 176558
I also ran a small piece under the edge of the counter just above the switch as an indicator when on.

My Notary finally got the out of state title, after almost two months. Got my TT registered and a license plate. The temporary tag was expired. Was going to have to be illegal to get to my reserved no refund campground about 30 miles away.

While camping this week I:
Adjusted a hinge on one of the under dinette storage spaces,
Adjusted the door latch on the trailer (needed to be tightened and shifted)
Installed the TireTraker TT-500
Tried out the Oxigenics showerhead. Great. Glad I switched.

Will be loading up tomorrow for a trip to the coast to do some surf fishing. So this afternoon swapped the storage compartment locks from the OEM ones and changed the analog thermostat to a digital. Hope to see a bit better temperature control.

Nice work! Is that a DC voltmeter for the battery? I see a sine wave but it only goes up to 20 so can't be AC?!?!

Trying to get the solar installed and all the new monster wires before we head to the Fireworks stand we are running this year. 10 days in a parking lot, hope it all works. I will post pics when I tidy up some of the wiring.
(Fireworks stand was on my wife's bucket list-- I should have filled it with water! )

Yes, it's a cheap $5 Chinese DC volt meter wired to the back of the Micro Monitor panel.


I believe it's an original mod by 05dually.

Added gauges to the propane tanks. Looks like I'll need longer lines to the regulator to alleviate tight turns at the tank.

I installed four 45 CFM fans in the propane fridge vent. Have a 2 switch wall switch mounted next to fridge that turns on 2 fans at a time. I figure I will run all 4 fans in the daytime and 2 fans at night to conserve battery power.

Hardest part was running the wiring down the fridge vent and then drilled a hole and ran it along stove/oven and then drilled 2 more holes to run it up the wall so it is next to my fridge.

I test it yesterday wtih a fridge full of stuff and it did much better than last weekend when 41 deg F was the lowest I could get out of the fridge in the daytime-33 deg F at night before fans.

I used cheap sleeve bearing CPU cooling fans. They are rated for 30,000 hours of use before failure so I figure they will outlast my camper. Each fan pulls about 0.2 amps of power at 12 volts and they have no problem running at 14.5 volts when my controller is bulk charging.

Finally got the camper back from dealer after have the rear stabilizers replaced. It only took them 5 weeks to replace them. I thought about doing it but they were covered under my extended warranty. While I was at the dealers I picked up the "LevelMatePro" system and installed it yesterday. it was easy to install after I first got the camper level. Hopefully this system will help me with finding a more level place when we go camping.

Washed the roof and checked all the caulking. Everything looks in good shape.

Replaced the foam grip on the Lend-a-Hand entry handle.

I wanted to replace the drain valve on the FW tank but discovered after I got to see it where it's stored that the factory used rivets instead of screws. I didn't have any drill bits and my rivet gun so that'll have to be replaced another day.
