Replaced the sink faucet. Want to upgrade at some point but when I check things over before our trip the original sprayed water all over. It would have been nice if it lasted at least two seasons.

Added a high pressure propane line for my Coleman grill. Now I need mod a tank hold down. Any ideas?Click image for larger version

I installed a battery monitor with shunt today. This is so much better than the simple voltmeter that came with the trailer. With a load, even a rather small one, the voltmeter was quite inaccurate, and had me thinking I was running my batteries down much more than I actually was.

Benchdog, get a milk crate propane tanks sit nicely in them you can bolt it to a board, painted place and use a strap to be sure it doesnít bounce out.

I think using a milk crate would be a good idea.

I use milk crates to transport my propane tanks when I take to get them filled. Best thing for transporting them. You may have to get inventive so that when you grab the tank the milk crate doesn't fall off. On some of my crates I've wrapped some Gorilla tape around the top portion of the crate and through the hole used as handles where the tank goes in with slight pressure.

Just make sure it is a true mild crate and not a one that looks like one that you'd buy at Walmart, Target or an office supply store. Those tend to be rectangle rather than square.

Thanks all, as usual, I overthink on my projects but usually find a more straightforward solution. I permanently mounted the strap ends to the brackets and pulled it tight.

Not to my camper but to the Weber Q2200 grill that we use while camping. The stock regulator was plugged up and the grill wouldnít get hotter than 250-300 deg F. So I took the hint and completed a project Iíd been meaning to do for a couple of years. I removed the stock regulator and put on a quick connect fitting so I can connect it to the RVís low pressure LP system.

Cleaned up the battery cables. Added labels and installed bigger battery boxes so I can upsize the batterys when I replace them.

Covid Projects

Things I do not have pictures of handy include:
-Added 12v outllets to bedroom for phone charging
-added folding shelf next to stove
-added an additional drawer to kitchen in what was wasted space in counter
-reloacated the TV antenna power switch from behind the TV.
-added larger/additional taillights (factory ones were small and poorly located)


Just slowing crossing off my Camper "to do" list.

Moving the TV antenna switch is a great idea. I canít even see mine. What tail lights did you use?

I added two of them, one on the end of the kitchen cabinet where the slide out comes in. It is for our coffee maker and cordless tea kettle.

The other to the wall next to DWs recliner for her coffee cup to sit on as she sips her first cup of the day

I used a piano hinge and toy box hinges that lock when opened fully

The one in the kitchen is secured by screwing it into a cleat I added to the inside of he cabinet ply wood to give it strength.

The one for DWs chair I used modified toggle bolts to shorten them so they would not poke out the outside wall.

All but the first and last pics are twisted 90 degrees left. Typical forum crap, you can't change it.

Pictures are uploaded as they are on your device. If you want them rotated 90 degrees, you must go into edit mode and rotate them on your device and save your changes, then upload.

Shelf looks great!

Needed something thin due to being a toy hauler. These worked perfect.
