Wink Got to know what's going on so...

Nice to know that what's important is operating as it should. Peace of mind!
X10 I rely on my Scan Gauge and TPMS system ($139 and $299 respectively), every time I turn the key. It puts me over $500 but for an additional $269 the Rand McNally LM 7720 GPS gets just as much use. Could not be happier with all three. Knowledge is a good thing.

Aside from replacing the differential ($4500), the Samsung refrigerator. I also took out an un-needed sofa and put in a set of cabinets with a 46-inch TV on a power lift behind it. Those with recliners, gives us a nice living room.

probably the best thing way over $500 I invested in was what my rig didn't have.... a backup camera.

Red face Oops, forgot one....

Forgot to mention in my earlier post the Progressive Industries EMS. It has caught a number of serious problems(reverse polarity, open ground/neutral etc.), before they could do any damage. Might just be the best $300 I've spent yet. I cannot imagine having an RV without at least a surge guard but preferably an EMS.

A new set of tires all the way around. Way over the $500.00 mark believe me but well worth it.

Got rid of the sleep number and bought a high end memory foam mattress. A good nights sleep is priceless.
