The cable runs across the roof to the front door area where I drop it down the side and the run it into the living room at the forward edge of the slide. By retracting the slide a couple of inches it's easy to run the cable around the slide seals. I place the amplifier on the floor just behind the passenger front seat. Then the Interior Antenna sits next to my Televator, thus amplifying the entire Living Room area.

All of this system is broken down and stored when traveling. We only use it when we are parked for a while.

Hope this is helpful.

If you RV where the temps get chilly at night, this is the perfect way to heat your bed.

There has to be a way to pipe this into an Aqua hot system. Or have I totally lost it like my DW claims.

If you have a gas oven, or are using the convection microwave for "real" baking, then putting this stone in the bottom of the oven really helps "hold" the heat and keep it more even. Not just for baking pizza! Cookies and such still use a baking pan on top of the stone....the stone justs acts like a regulator keeping oven temperatures from fluctuating as much.

Windshield wiper blades always seem to have a short life, as they are "smashed" so tightly to the glass that the rubber blade gets distorted over time and doesn't wipe as smoothly. One trick I have seen others do when the coach is just sitting, is to wedge a couple of tennis balls under the arms, that way the rubber blade doesn't even touch the glass. Be sure to remove the balls when needing to drive the coach!

Pasdad1 we saw this tip several years ago from a fellow RV'er. It really does help to save the fragile blades. We also cover the blades to protect against UV. While this topic of blades is up, not to steal this tread, anyone have a replacement for the 32 inch boomerang blades? They are very expensive!?

Top 10 items you should carry in a new RV.

Speaking of extending wiper blade life, when they start to streak the windshield when wiping, clean the rubber blade edge with a cloth/swap/napkin soaked in rubbing alcohol to remove any buildup of road-grime/oils and/or rain-x residue. Its amazing how much crud accumulates on the blades, which keeps them from making smooth contact with the glass, and this cleansing will help them perform like new until they truly deform. So in keeping with the OPs question, carry rubbing alcohol and paper towels. I actually carry a bag of individually packaged 99.9% pure alcohol wipes that I also use to clean surfaces prior to applying adhesives/tapes because bottled rubbing alcohol has some oils in it.

I had the ACU-Rites and while they were fairly accurate they died within 6 months. I just keep the standard Accurite round thermometers you can buy at the grocery store.

Love the Webber though!

Have you considered going to the 28" blades? I had to buy a pair as my 32"s fell apart and I needed them right away. Went into an Auto Zone and bought the longest ones they had, 28"s. Well they sweep way more windshield than I need to see (the 32"s swept extra area that you do not look out) and were very cheap. That's what I'm buying from now on.

Larry, were your wiper arms True Vision? Are the 28 inch j type attachments. I so want to change blades, these new boomerangs treated with 303 and covered have already split their so poorly made as mentioned cost $48 to $ 55 bucks each! We're the 28" true vision? Thanks!

Clay, the ones on there were 32" True Vision I believe (the long flexible arms, right?). I just bought the Rain X Latitude wiper blades (same style), and they fit everything; J mounts, push on, the side mount that many European cars use. What I find on my coach is that the four inches lost only wiped the extreme upper and lower parts of the windshield anyway. Both are unneeded to see the road and the wipers run smoother with the smaller blades due to less drag.

If you travel in your RV with pets, these stickers will give peace of mind when you need to be away from the RV, and your pets are left behind. Should something happen to the RV, people helping out will know to look for and save your pets.
