Where will you mount or set this surge protector?

I ordered 4 MaxxAir covers from Camping World, whose prices even with state sales tax, no shipping charge for being a Good Sam member ordering more than $99, were lower than anything else I saw on line.
I've had RVs forever, but this is the first time I'll have MaxxAirs on the roof. I always wanted to get them for my previous RVs, but never got around to buying them.
The main reason for buying them now, is that it seems that if you even look at my current roof vents, the corners will crack on them.

Portable 100W Solar Panel ...

Recently purchased a Renogy portable 100W solar panel, but not sure if it's working properly. Followed "how-to" instructions, then placed the panels in full direct sunlight for several hours, but house battery (one 12V) had no juice. Now I'm wondering if I need an inverter (RV is only equipped with converter, and probably non-charging at that). Sure hope I didn't waste my money on this purchase

Noticed some small dings in the paint on the front edge of the hood so I added a bug shield.

Well where do I begin Getting ready to leave the end of June for a 4 month cross country adventure. Starting with complete service at the truck center on the chassis. Then off to our favorite RV guy to install the window awning over the window on the passenger side, he also adjusted all the basement doors and latches. Added some additional grab bars in the master bath for safety. Next week its over to the Onan center for generator service before we hit the road. Oh, I forgot to mention 4 new tires for the toad too cha ching cha ching

My surge protector is hard wired. I cut the electric cable inside the electric bay and mounted the surge guard on the wall. This way it can't be misplaced or grow legs and walk away. It has saved my electronics from damage several times when the incoming power voltage was too low. To me it is cheap insurance.

What was the last thing you bought for your RV ?

San-I-con twist on macerator system.
Been debating for a while.
Full timing in one spot, and have been using garage toilet for "business". Grandkids in for a visit and, well, you know. Tank was full. Camping World and bought one - talked them down $50 off the sale price for a price match.
Clamped wires to battery and tanks dumped. Will hard wire later. Worked great thru my existing 3/4" drain hoses!
One more thing off the list before we hit the road.

Not exactly for the RV, but the RV site. Bought replacement support bars for the pergola that was taken down by a tree branch.
