I have tried modifying two different grills for low pressure inlets. Both worked, but the RV's system wouldn't deliver enough gas to create a strong flame because of the pressure drop through the lengthy hoses. I'm not ready to modify the RV's high pressure side just yet. It's not complex or dangerous, just inconvenient. The bottles are too easy to make it worth my while (my personal opinion only).
Exactly. The tee is before the regulator. It's the exact same thing as an extend-a-stay but from Camco.

Just ordered a new tuner for our 2006 vintage King Dome in-motion sat dome, old one is going out so I ordered the upgraded tuner to get all Dish sats without manual interaction. Also bought and installed some Closet Maid shelves in the closet for shoes, worked perfect.

New floor registers from Signature Hardware. Pricey, but still the cheapest for the 4x8 vents this trailer has without them being flimsy crap. Four of them @ $28.95 each.

The vent openings are just a tad undersized, so I get to open them up a bit. Slowly sanding them out will probably be easiest and least likely to damage the ducts.

Besides, the louvers will make DW happy. The living room register is right between/under her feet in front of the couch, and it gets quite warm.

Outside blower motor, start capacitor, and computer board for the ac/heat pump. Not much to look at, but definitely improved the comfort level!!

New house power

Got rid of the 12 volt garbage batteries and put in these six volt babies.
made custom buss bars to eliminate extra wires. used the old hold down made out of oak. Also added a remote to the intellisense 9200 converter charger. Now I can watch TV all night with my 500 watt surround sound and subwoofer. Neighbors will probably call the cops.

I tried to use the deep cycle marine batteries from Wally World but that was just a big mistake. I just wanted to try them. After about two years they died one by one. They simply shorted out internally. That cause the old converter to take a dive too. That is why I bought the new 9200 converter/charger multi stage.

Just got a Progressive Industries 50 hard wired ems and a digi-key controller for our Norcold. Soon as it warms up (-4 tonight) I'll get my son to help install them.

Universal RV stabilizers. Universal RV Stabilizer - Valterra 020106 - Stabilizing Jacks - Camping World. Bought three and they work great. Makes the unit very stable and almost no movement. And a box full of new LED bulbs to upgrade.

New queen mattress to replace the brick supplied with the new motor home! So much better. Waiting on the dual recliner to replace the unused dinette (always in the bed position for the poor abused pups). Keep telling myself no more for this year..............
