New headlights. What a difference in appearance. For the cost of them ($26.79 each with free shipping at the time) it wasn't worth my time continualy having to wet sand and try to bring the old ones back to look decent.

Nice, been meaning to get one of these, now if it just amplified the wifi signal as well......


Let's see, a roll of R-15 faced Fiberglass insulation for 2x4 walls, a bundle of 48" long lath, box of self tapping lath screws for insulating the floor of our bedroom in the 5th wheel.

Also bought a package of 4" aluminum flexible duct, a 4" Ducting Y, a 4x10 register register vent with a 90 degree sideways output, a 6" - 4" adapter, a roll of metal plumbers strap, a steel register vent cover and four 4" hose clamps to split the vent line going to the toilet room off to add a new register to the bedroom as it had poor heating, cut a hole in the floor and ran the new vent line to add that register as close to the nose of the trailer as we could get (Only other register vent in the bedroom itself was a little round job that blows at the side of the base of our bed slide out and a big 2x10 register in the toilet room that would roast you while seated on the can).

Today, I bought a 50-30 adapter cord and a 30-20 plug to go on the end so I could use our small generator (normally used for the camper) for backup power for the converter when the power goes out. Our rig has one battery, which isn't very good quality and is dying and I don't have the budget for the golf cart battery bank upgrade I'd like to do.

Also bought a sharkbite female adapter to replace the threaded connector on the cold water connection to our water heater, discovered it had a very slow leak when I was installing the vent extension. Water's dripping safely out of the trailer so, no concerns for rot till I can get back in there and replace the failed plastic connector.

If I buy the stuff a little at a time by spring we'll have it ready to go camping
Got one of those not too long ago for my 5er, helped immensely with the wiggle the trailer would do when the splendide 2100xc was spinning out.

With my grandfathered unlimited data plan, I don't need no stinkin' wifi (if I can get cell service)!

Almost forgot, last week I bought a cable that goes from my Galaxy S3 to HDMI. Should give me lots of viewing options, again . . . (if I can get cell service)!

I have the grandfathered plan as well, my phone doubles as our internet hotspot, but the hotspot doesn't have the greatest signal strength.

2 new 3500# axles for my Airstream, only thing is they sent 6000# axles. Trying to find out how this is going to be resolved now. Sure wish I hadn't removed the old ones, if I need to go camping I will have to take the Montana 5th wheel that I am detailing to sell.

Hey Ken,

I don't mean to rain on your parade, but I got a new Wilson Sleek also, but bought an open box item from Amazon Warehouse deals and saved a bunch. They sell the returns cheaper and still have the same warranty. I love the improved reception!

Purchased an accessory step for my hitch on my truck camper. Won't need the steps while I'm on the road anymore.

If you buy anything and give them an email address, get ready for all kinds of junk mail. Some asking if you are satisfied.

I called into tech support for Logitech, and I have gotten no less than 8 email asking if the problems was fixed. I even begged them to stop sending email and they still did. I bought some software and have gotten at least 4 emails either thanking me or some other questions or requests.
