Did full service on MH (getting to old for all this bending stooping and crawling). Serviced the generator, fridge, AC, as well. Added a Steer Safe. Added small circulating fan in the fridge. Removed excess items (things placed on MH and not used, ever). Now just waiting for a few more days and then to South Florida.

................ hopefully not all in one day!! Of course, if you are trying to top Robin Williams...........

I hope that the damage is not extensive!

Since a few of you have sent messages asking where I bought everything for the tire inflator in post #26 of this thread I thought I would list that info here. If you have any additional questions please msg me.

1000th post, at least my this post will be somewhat useful, unlike the first 999

The 1/4" poly hose (Hitachi), air filter and fittings came from Lowes.

The in-line bleeder valves (in-line blow guns) and lock-on chucks are from MSC Industrial

In-Line Blow Guns - Blow Guns | MSCDirect.com

Air Chucks - Air Chucks & Air Line Inflator & Gauge Assemblies | MSCDirect.com

Air Chucks - Air Chucks & Air Line Inflator & Gauge Assemblies | MSCDirect.com

The straight lock-on chuck and Blue Point Digital inflator were laying around the garage. The chuck in Milton, sorry no part number on it and the Blue Point is from Snap-On

Our roadhouse is in the driveway! Checked tire pressures and installed TST sensors.
Added a Miller table that we found at a garage sale. Having Thanksgiving with the family, then will be heading south Monday!

Thanks for the great post on the tire inflation system. I think I'll add the ability to balance the rear duals in one airing by using double chucks.

Is that simply putting a Y on the end of those hose and using 2 air chucks or is their some type of balancing valve in between that equalizes the pressure?

Will be replacing our over the dash TV. The original one died, three weeks past the one year warranty. Sony was not simpathetic enought to help out. It was a challenge finding one with the same inputs in the same size as even a year out, like any electronics, its obsolete. Finally found one about an hour away from where we're staying over the Thanksgiving weekend and can go pick it up tomorrow. Then will come the fun part - trying to balance the TV while installing the mounting screws. Wish me luck.

Ironically, I heard a statistic on the radio yesterday. The three year failure rate on LCD TVs - only 4%. Lucky me.

I imagine that statistic applies to those TVs that are sitting on a table their whole lives. I wonder what the statistic is for TVs that are in bouncy RVs with MSW inverters and questionable shore power.

Installed a gun safe in the rear closet. Gives me a place to secure my pistol when crossing in to states that don't recognize my CHL permit.

How do you get past the Yukon Terr and other Cdn. Prov's ? Sorry if I'm hijacking.
