I'm guessing 75 gallons of diesel doesn't count?

Well, it is certainly more expensive than a lot of what's on this thread!

I think there is a spending limit but those who are unfortunate enough to find it probably close their account here the next day. Hope I never find it. Just sayin.

Don't tease. You know you are already buying stuff. Admit it!

I just removed our in motion Direct Tv dome and replaced it with a HD Traveler dish. HD all the time now.

A couple door latches and some exterior wax. Not real sexy but she's nice and shiny and ready to rest for a few months of winter hibernation.

Our latest purchase was a fuel extender for our two Honda generators. Tried it out at the Martinsville NASCAR race. Ran both generators from Friday afternoon to Sunday night on light load and shut them off at night. We used 3/4 of the tank. It was nice dry camping and not have to refill the generators. We probably didn't need to run both generators but wanted to get a feel for how long the fuel extender would last.

Can you post a link of the version of fuel extender you have?

Just bought air tank release valves w/Lanards to pull and drain the water on my air tanks after long drives. Have not drained them for 10 years but there was not much water in them.

Let's see.. New KONI FSDs for the Front, KONI Adjustables for the Rear. New Airsprings for the rear. One LF3000 oil filter, and 6 gallons of Shell Rotella-T.

How fun is that!

Here is a link to the one we bought: http://www.northerntool.com/shop/too...8951_200408951. I met a fellow camper at Richmond Raceway and he said tried a couple and this one had the best fittings. We did have one problem before we left, and that was during the night gas would come out of the hoses. I think it had something to do with a pressure differential as it was cool at night and warm in the morning. The company did send us another set of hoses but we decided to get a couple of fuel shut off valves and installed them on the hoses. Cheap fix. Since we do a lot dry camping we really like the fuel extender.

We boondock all the time, in fact I'll bet I've only had hook ups less than a hanful of times... so this has me wondering... why do you need your generator on so much? We run ours if we use the convection oven or if we've had the outdoor radio on all day and need to recharge the house batteries but its for a brief time and once a day.
