Bought and installed a Progressive Dynamics converter after our original died and left us HOT! First motel stay for our family in about a year... hopefully the last for a long time! Recommend that if your converter starts making noise or the fan is running a lot, change it! It certainly won't fail when you don't need it.

Last things we bought...

New silverware! No more dollar store flimsy utensils for us!

Voltage Regulator for the GenSet

New 32in lcd TV for the main living area (requiring major modification to the existing TV storage area. The TV is now mounted on self-closing drawer slides and pulls out from the wall for access to the cabinets behind)

New Sony 1000W Surround sound system for the new TV. It even has WiFi and Bluetooth built in. Amazing what a DVD player can do nowadays.

New hooks for hanging towels in the bathroom area.

A new Fluke 117/322 Electricians combo kit to help in chasing down electrical gremlins. Already paid for itself while repairing the GenSet and checking the inverter.

A new dirt bike for the kids to bring along. It's a 2003 Suzuki DRZ-125l. The previous owner had bought it new for his daughter, who fell off a few times and never rode it again. It still has the nubs on the tires and is essentially new. Got it for such a good price I almost felt guilty buying it.

I'm sure we'll be buying a lot more stuff in the next few weeks as we prepare for our east coast summer trip at the end of the month. Can't wait...

New combo Smoke/CO detector for the living space. New right side tail/stop/turn light combo for the cargo trailer (replaced the left side already). They may have been LED's, but water got into the circuits and ruined most of them. Continued work on installing new 29" flatscreen...more work than I envisioned.

Same here. Only ours did not have decals as OEM. Just old looking paint in a dated pattern. New total full body paint and graphics feels good going down the highway.


Ours is pictured in the "painted coaches" section.

ScanGuageD. More information than I can use at one time. I run it so I can see my HP, GPH. MPG instantaneous and MPH. There are other options but this is my preference. I can see ECM fault code reset if necessary. Very easy to install, just plug in to connector under dash and I mounted my display just above the speedometer on top of dash. It comes with Velcro strips.
