Wow where to start.....

While at Quartzsite, for the inside a GoWise USA 3qt Capacity Electric Programmable Pressure Cooker. Just the right size. And for the outside I got front and rear Koni shocks put on. Oh what a difference. Sorry I waited an extra year.

New Wrangler

Decided to go toad. Bought a new Wrangler, Blue Ox Aventa, associated parts, new battery and maintenance charger. It will take me a month to put it all together!

What was the last thing you bought for your RV ?

Bought and used the 2 step Adam's polish on my chrome wheels. My wheels do not have the coating that keeps them shiny, and they needed to be polished.

I did my front two wheels so far, each taking about 45 mins. I used a combination of soft drill-powered buffer wheels. Here are a few pics:

Great advice. Also replace the rubber brake hose over the rear end. These hoses had a metal clamp around them. As the rubber aged it swelled. The clamp kept it from expanding outward. It caused them swell in and close off the hose. Ford had a better idea. They used a curved wire that was a lazy S shape and did not allow the hose to swell in.

Nano Station M2 - It's sweet!

It definitely reaches out and locks onto the campground WiFi
