I dump into the sewer clean out and chase it with 2 minutes of fresh water. If you can get your coach close enough to yours, you could save a lot of time and $. Nice cover!

Thanks! Yes, I've dumped straight into my clean out before as well but it requires me backing into the yard. Sometimes hard to do during rainy season (all winter). If it's raining when I leave the campground that's when I would really like to be able to dump at home!

A some pieces of 4" hard plastic drain pipe and an elbow might be a solution. Hide them out of sight when not needed.

Just left the Western FMCA RV Rally in Indio CA. Had the outside of the RV and wheels detailed, replaced the sun aged and cracking vinyl of the main awning with tweed fabric and added alumashield, replaced the slide topper cover too, got a dash cam w/7 hour recording loop, and an additional 4 year RV Warrantee.

Can you believe this is what I received today???
Sending me a replacement tomorrow.

What was the last thing you bought for your RV ?

Another RV.


Then for the RV I just purchased for the last one:


I purchased another.


And I repeated that process for a total of 6 so far.


Finding the ones we want and getting them when we can is the hard part.
Once we have them and my new garage is built I can fix them up.
(I'm a retired mechanic with lots of time on my hands.)

Our collection so far.
Picture #1 - Ultravan #248 was our first.
Picture #2 - Ultravan #256 was our second.
Picture #3 - Ultravan #362 and 512 on the same truck was our third and forth.
Picture #4 - Ultravan #520 was our fifth for our collection and the sixth one to arrive here. I towed this one home myself.

This one I saved from becoming scrap. (The owner's brother was kind enough to tow it to our place.)
Picture #5 - Ultravan #231 was our fifth to arrive. Once I fix up the body I will find it a good home.


Our plan is to have one for each series made and they must have different options when they were first built to order.
That way we can not only display the changes that occurred over the 7 years they were built;
we can also show some of the options a customer could have ordered back then too.

Marie and I plan to use and enjoy each and every one when they are not on displayed in our small museum. At least that is our goal!

Tony

Picture #3


Picture #4



Picture #5
This Ultravan will not become part of our collection. I saved this one from becoming scrap.
Once I fix up the body I will find it a good home.
The guy standing next to it is the owner's brother. He was kind enough to tow it up here for me.

An Amped Wireless Wifi Extender, which we setup to connect to the wifihot spot from verizon, to which we connected several devices via wired connection and boosted the range of our wifi signal.

All I have to do is plug the phone into it's charger, turn on the wifi hotspot and the extender does the rest.

Shopping for a Digital to Analog converter for our TV so that we can hook it up to our older Technics SA-EX510 receiver.

Hands Free

Accessory Power GOgroove FlexSMART X2 ADVANCED Wireless In-Car Bluetooth FM Transmitter with Charging, Music Control and Hands-Free Calling for ANDROID, iPhone, Blackberry and Windows Smartphones.


In the state of Illinois it is now illegal to drive with a hand held device. Since my Ford E450 doesn't have bluetooth...I found this on the net. So far works great...also play Pandora with my Droid Razr.
