Nope you are right. I didn't read properly. Autoformers are for 120v AC.

Was going to show you the pics of the back up camera mod.. :'(

I did it but I was not happy with the quality of signal strength and so I think I'm going to get a more higher end . Tried to save money and bought a cheap on from eBay! ! Doh!!

So I've been looking into a wireless back up camera for the TT myself. I've already installed a wired backup camera on my truck. If I bought just the wireless relievers, is there a way to switch the inputs with say a switch so I wouldn't have to buy another monitor?

Yes, the wireless transmitter and it's receiver work in tandem. The wireless receiver will have a yellow video out. Make sure that plugs into your current video in on the monitor.

If you want a switch you will need to buy a video switching device like below. Not sure what connections you have.

Just a quick couple of necessary mods done today.

Like the kitchen sink, I ordered another under sink soap dispenser which I installed in the bathroom.
Always the quick and easy installs turn out to be the PITA.

I couldnt even drill properly as the cabinet was so low, i couldn't get the drill vertical. There was such a small space to work with I even had to file the pieces underneath to make them fit in the Limited space, but it came out good in the end. Didn't rush it. Just wanted it done right.

I also added a in-cabinet paper towel holder. It's those little things that make me smile and appreciate doing to simplify RV life.

Hope you all are enjoying the summer so far!

That's a great idea! I feel pressured to do more mods when I read this thread.

So as advised (by some of you here lol) I bought myself a waterproof cover for my power tongue jack. I went to a camping store and bought a water proof bag with clips at half the cost of Amazon for a proper tongue cover. I was elated lol. It fit PERFECTLY over the jack.

I also order 5 levels on ebay for $6!! as I wasn't happy with the circular levels on the tongue. I just felt they weren't accurate/sensitive enough and I was RIGHT. I stuck it on using marine silicone. I was astounded how anything this cheap could be so accurate. They are accurate!! Now it's going to be really easy leveling instead of the circular ones on the jack or getting a real level out each time.

I gave a couple to my neighbour's for their RV's as a good will gesture. They were very happy.

Sure, you stuck the level on your tongue, but the main reason why you level is so the fridge will run at its best on propane. Do the tongue and the floor of the freezer share the same level?

Absolutely right and that's what I checked first. The floor and the tongue are exactly the same level. This is why I wanted it there. If the tongue is level I will know the fridge is level.

Hey Ali !
Was getting worried about you with no new post lately !! First of all, E Bay, Amazon, is always going to be a better buy than any " RV Specialized " place ! RV/High Price !
As far as the cover goes, i don't like them, sure they protect from the rain, but the moisture they trap inside is far worse.

We trying to save the money for a full carport to protect it from mostly sun and
rain, unless we hit the lottery, our last TT. We Giezzers you know !!!! and SS is my best friend !!!!
