You can tell if it's working by watching the person tailgating you, turn on their windshield wipers repeatedly.








JUST KIDDING. Just wishful thinking

Incredible!! I never knew such a thing existed. I've kind of lost my desire for green beans for a while though.

I wonder how far you have to travel for let's say a mornings worth? We may have a new way of determining miles per @#$%

Hi Ken,

I installed a similar product and the only tough part was climbing back down for that forgotten tool. Do yourself a favor -- have a gopher waiting beside the rig and a bucket with a rope attached so you can haul up what you forgot, and a cold bottle of water. It can get hot up there really quick.

also got a one year Good Sam membership for $20 which saved me more than half of that with the free shipping it provides.

Now I just have to get up the nerve to do the install, fortunately I've found some good info here (with pics) to give me the confidence to do it!

Barb - you are a hoot! Before it's over - I'm going to pay your and Sena's fuel and fees down here to DFW to work on Bonita Bounder for us. Congrats on your progress!

For our up-coming trip, I decided to get 4 tires. After looking at what we had, we now have 6 new shoes for the MH. It only took $1875.29 out of the credit union.

We also had the propane genny tooned up with new plugs, points, oil, and filter. It now runs like a swiss watch and it sure sounds nice, but more money. DW says if I keep getting ready to go, there won't be enough money left to go.

Ahhhh, but won't she look and run great in the driveway! LOL

Funny though, how we always find a way to get out there and make it work!

Antenna

Just purchased a Winegard GM 1518 antenna. It will toggle between network and non network channels automatically. Returned an Anser model MG500, which required manual reset to change between network and non network channels.

A Carpod carrier with top and waterproof liner from Camping World. Still struggling with the reduced storage in the motorhome vs the 5 wheel and truck combo.

DW will be nearby BUT I think of her as more of a supervisor than a gopher!

I think that I can do most, if not all, of the rooftop work from a ladder on the side of the RV rather than walking the roof from the rear. My main concern was in the wiring but it looks like it will work with most of the old wiring. Time will tell.
