IC, We used Milwaukee's at work for years and I noticed the last time there (Retired) that they had changed to Porter Cable's.
I have been looking at getting a compressor and that looks like a nice one and a good size. The 82 PA doesn't have much space to store a compressor that one looks like I could find a spot. Have you tried it yet and how did it work? Did you try to add air to the tires? My big one @ the S&B has trouble filling the tires Campbell/Hauser 3 1/2 HP. It has too be running for it to add air in the tires.

This week I bought Florida License Plates, a 9.3 cu.ft. Residential fridge at HD, Cherry Allure vinyl planking for whole coach & two recliners to replace sleep sofa. I will be busy for the next two weeks.

Last summer I heard about portable ice makers and have been looking at them since. I was recently perusing the Marriott rewards catalog (I spend about 70 nights a year out.) and noticed that they had one, albeit an expensive one in the retail world. But for points I got paid to accumulate? Sure, I'll take it. Plus, it's stainless which matches my fridge. It was delivered today and has been making ice for a few hours now.

Here's the unit, thus far I really like it and can't wait to use it camping.

i haven't tried it yet, next time when i go to parking place i will. it says cut off psi is 125, which is higher than what i normally need at 120; and it has a nice 4 scfm at 40psi (i am guessing probably 2.5 at 100psi, big enough).
algolfer has one, nice to know his works well...

Napa 4071 coolant filter for the cummins.
Saw it while I was cleaning the CAC.
Road oil, dirt and engine blow-by BEFORE I installed a slobber tube jar.

For the Coachmen I bought 2 more (now all 3 are new) roof vent covers, a new cover for the rear wall mounted spare tire (they go bad so quickly) and a few pieces of hardware for the ladder on the rear wall. Have to get this thing sold.

My Igloo ice maker arrived Tuesday of this week (works like a champ - love it) and the Panda PAN30 washer arrived from Amazon Thursday (haven't tried it yet).
