At 8000 feet they will be very happy most of the time unless you get near freezing.

You now can add weight to rear of axle to counter this..;-)

That's the plan. The trailer has a rear hitch so I will get one of those carriers for the firewood.

I hope you vented it so there's no gas build up. You can't just stick them in an enclosed box otherwise they can blow the box apart along with the front end of your trailer and anyone standing nearby.

Old Faucet




I bought a new Delta faucet today and installed it. 100% flow improvement. Very smooth action and the DW loves the larger spray wand/head.

I took some of the screening out of the faucet. There are multiple layers. That improved the flow.

I just ordered a new Class A and am having the dealer install a dishwasher where the clothes washer normally goes, in a closet between the refrigerator and the bathroom door. It comes from the factory with a 12 volt outlet only at the dashboard and to the right of the passenger seat. The dealer is installing 5 more 12 volt outlets, one at the kitchen countertop for a blender or other appliance, under the dinette for my computer and a 15" TV/DVD player, in the bathroom for a fan+shaver+nightlight, one in the bedroom for a CPAP machine and TV/DVD, and one in an outside bin for an air compressor and TV or other appliances. Trying to go 12V as much as possible for boondocking.

Have that dealer use number 10 or larger wire.

If they are pulling in wires the labor is the same and larger wire just pennies more.

Be certian they make home runs to a distribution panel where it can be properly fused.

They make 2 conductor zip cord specifically for this as it has a red and black conductor pair so easy to work with.
.
Making suggestion as many many folks would just run a wire to something "handy" and call it good but then maybe only 3 amps of power available.

Having good conductors to the distribution panel allows good power present and ability to add more devices later limited to the wire not the adaptor.

Also specify quality adaptors rated for CONTINIOUS DUTY, many can do a couple amps and surge more but will get hot and melt if higher but within spec currents are used.

Just be sure the dealer does quality work with correct and quality materials as life will be easier down the road.

Bounder Remodel

Over the past two years we have been remodeling the inside of our RV redoing the counter tops with Giani counter top paint, ( Giani countertop paint ) installing a tile back splash ect we decided to do a major remodel of the inside. The last two weekends I installed a hardwood floor in the kitchen and bathroom area as well as installed new carpet. We took out one of the chairs behind the passenger captains chair and installed a new couch and installed an electric fireplace. I removed the booth and found some oak folding chairs that don't look like a folding chair and reused the booth table. When we aren't using the table and chairs we can take it down and store it under our bed making the inside seem so much bigger. We also replaced the short queen with a standard queen mattress. We couldn't be happier and can't wait to take it camping.

Thanks
Adam
