earlier today i proposed we start the "RV'rs for Julia Childs", what with all the cooking we do with wine as a base ingredient,

but i think '56 is clearly in a position to chair the "RV'rs Better then Martha" with this one

thank you Martha,
Julia

Howie,

You need to write your own 10 minute tech book.

I did an install today on the Alfa, it already has back-up lights, but I added 2 flood lights on either side under the rear pointing at a 45 so I can see the back of the rig at night and anything I might hit. Ther are hooked into the back-up light system, come on automatically when in reverse, and light up the ground perfectly so I can back into the toy crib at night. I'll post a picture later.

I was considering something similar. I was planning on using some Trailtech mini fogs.
I also thought of replacing the ramp door spots with some mini HID's, to increase my lighting while reducing the draw on my batteries..

You know that Caddy feature where when you turn, a side flood illuminates in the direction you're turning? Boy I wish I could find something like that- along with some better backup lights- Clark: we'll have to puruse your backup lights- was the backup wiring hard to get to and route?

OMG!!! Remind me to NEVER post a photo of where we park our WW -- LOL! Fer chrissakes, do you guys pour over those photos with a microscope?

By the way, we've always called Howie "Chief Pants On Fire" for reasons that are quickly becoming evident to you all. The guy never sits down.

Mikey:

Boy..."I tole you, and I tole you, and I tole you noooo more"...never thought we had so much stuff in our TH after we took it out (sound familiar)? Man...had to be a good 800 l-b's that we didn't realize we packed. Half of it WON'T go back in the new rig...and I just may cut off the sewer hose when thinkin' about the weight.

The 'mechanized' conveyor is the three of us hand'n things to the guest bedroom...guest will be crowded for a while. Oh well...the sacrifices we make....

Sean, i am telling you,
i also never had any idea of how much 'necessary stuff' we pack in that tug of ours, until we sold one a couple months before buying the other and had to store all that stuff in the garage.
when you actually have to take one of the cars out of the garage just you you have enough room to store a 'little stuff', you then realize you are not packing like Lewis and Clark used to.

We made an agreement when faced with the ugly truth of what we had taken out of our old trailer, that from now on when we have 'old' pots and pans at the house, we are just going to throw them away and not 'put them into the trailer'. And the same goes with my old sweaters. I mean, do i really need 4 old sweaters in the trailer considering we camp in 100 degree heat??
