RV Projects: Battery Bay Blues -- 7/29/2019

We recently had trouble starting the NewAire; turns out one of the pair of Interstate cranking batteries had a weak cell. A closer look showed that both batteries were 9 years old and in dire need of replacement.



So we shopped around and found a great deal on a couple group 31 commercial cranking batteries (1,000 CCA each) with a 2 year...

RV Projects: Clearing the (New)Aire -- 7/23/2019

One of the few things that we disliked about our original NewAire is the lack of proper ventilation and air movement. The rig only has 6 small windows and small powered vents in the bathroom and galley. Yes, there are three doors, but who wants to leave doors open?

What to do? Install a high capacity MaxxAir 7000K Roof Vent, of course.

RV Projects: Repairing a One-Of-A-Kind Mirror -- 7/12/19

If you read my previous blog posts, you know our driver's mirror was damaged in our former storage yard by an unidentified culprit. (Culprit because whoever hit the mirror tried to cover their tracks, pushing the mirror back in place and pocketing the broken pieces, but they missed a small one.) Here's the damage I found:

BEWITCHING OF A HITCHING (4th Blog)

Posted 07-08-2019 at 10:00 AM by Patty1161 (Reality RVing)

As all good things must come to an end, on day five, we had to check out of our campsite by noon. I had everything packed up by 10am and all that was left to do was hitch up. Easier said than done! No matter what I tried, the coupler latch would not engage.
After sometime, I asked the next door RV camper if he could help me. The gentlemen tried over and over. While scratching his head, he stated that he had been RVing for years and had never seen a problem like this! While we both...

RV Projects: Fixing a Goof on the Roof -- 7/7/2019

When we first got our NewAire, the rearview camera was flakey; it kept cutting in and out. With the DW watching the monitor, I climbed up the rear of the coach and jiggled the wiring around the camera itself. Sure enough, we determined there was a gamey wiring connection.



I got up on the roof and found that the wiring junction between...

RV Projects: Converting Fluorescents to LED Strip Lights -- 7/2/2019

All our planned RV projects have been completed -- and then some. The first project was conversion of our fluorescent galley lights to extra-bright LED strip lights.



If you have an RV that's more than a few years old, you probably have 12V DC fluorescent fixtures with replaceable tube bulbs. Ugh. I have converted...
