a remote indicator for the intellisense coverter charger. only $10 buck included shipping and got it in 2.5 days. others wanted $12 plus 6 for shipping. PAY TO KEEP LOOKING ON EBAY.

Also bought a converter plug 50 amp to 30 amp connect directly to the MH inlet. this saves pulling out the big 30 foot, 50 amp cord every time.
here is the best part. everyone wanted $79 or more but found it for only $29 and 8 for shipping. order from ebay seller so dakota and it was drop shipped out of a company in atlanta but shipped from boston. Krazzy.

The vent covers that always seem to dry up and blow away.
I'm late the RV Shop is going to put them on this morning.
I need to replace all of them as they have not been replaced in almost 8 years. I guess I got my moneys worth out of them

A 25 foot 30 amp extension cord. Haven't needed one in the past but the last two sites I was at the cord was hardly touching ground...

Also installed a GE Carbon Monoxide detector - just in case

It seems like I post to much on this thread. Maybe I need to stop buying for the RV?

Naaaaaaaa!!!

Well, I tried to buy a new jetpack/mifi from Verizon and have it put on one of our existing (grandfathered) unlimited data plans . . . they won't do that,

So . . . I bought a used 4G Motorola Razr which I'll put on the wife's unlimited data plan (I'll get her a new phone with a 2 GB plan which will be more than enough) and I'll install the paid version of Foxfi on the Razr which will live in a Wilson Sleek 4G booster. I also bought a Cradlepoint MBR95 which will take the internet from the Razr Foxfi and redistribute it wired to our PS3, Google TV and Verizon Network Adapter (which should give a strong boosted signal to any nearby Verizon cell phone) and wireless to my laptop, the wife's iPad and my Kindle.

Oh, I also bought a couple bags of different cable clips so I can clean things up once I get this all mounted and working!

Seems rather convoluted BUT I think it should work . . . if you think I missed anything, feel free to point it out.

A nineteen hundred dollar rehab on the injector pump. The next thing to purchase is the seven hundred dollar cost for labor to remove and install. It would sure be nice if the money came in a little bit faster then it goes out.

Progressive Dynamics 55 amp converter upgrade with Chargewizard. No more boiled batteries. Selectable boost mode to to pour the juice to the batteries when I hook up to the Honda generator. Now I can recharge the batteries when dry camping in a fraction of the time on the old charger.

I only replaced 1 vent cover. Oh and a crank for the vent cover that was replaced. $70.37 for the cover the crank and a half hour labor.

I asked the owner of the RV shop about replacing my coach battery's wrong. He said well the battery's are $179.00 ea. And he said he would charge me 4 hrs. labor @ $80.00 but if I paid cash and not by check or credit card he would give me a 10% discount on the battery's and a 50% discount on the labor. (wonder why he just didn't say he would only charge me for 2 hrs labor?) I told him I didn't have that much cash with me.
Then he went outside and talked to the guy that was doing the work. The young man was done he said the vent was $17.85,
After he talked to the owner of the shop they said that the crank for the vent was bad. ( didn't seem to be bad when I opened the vent) Worked fine in the storage lot

So I will think twice before I go back there.
I found a battery shop he told me he would sell me 6 T-105 Trojan Battery's and install them for $720.00 plus Uncle Jerry's cut. (sales tax)after taxes $779.40. So when we get back from our business I guess I might buy 6 new T-105 Trojan Battery's.

How much did that radio set you back if you don't mind me asking. The Radio in the outside entertainment center on our RV has gone bad and doesn't seem to want to work anymore.

Sounds interesting. I took the restricters off my shower and faucets, but we'd still like more pressure. So? Tell us (please) more about it and where you got it.
