Just bought a Tire Pressure and Temperature Monitoring System (TPMS) from EEZ RV Products for the coach and toad. It came down to the TPMS and TST 507. Both systems have replaceable sensor batteries. Hope I made a good choice, but in any case feel a lot better monitoring those tires.

Surge guard

Hey Bucksmom and Finhawk
About the surge guard. Bucksmom there is a box type of locking system for the surge guard. You can get it on Amazon or at Campingworld. Works really well.
Finhawk, I blew off using a surge guard until I was at an RV park when someones power cord shorted out and caused the whole row of RVs to surge all at once. One rig lost its TV from it. I thought what if that was a refrigerator. I know it is clumsy, but I definitely use mine regularly now. Even if I am only staying overnight.

LED light strip for under the awning. Bright, perhaps a little too bright.

I broke down and ordered one this morning.

If at first... Re-read the directions!

I bought a SurgeGuard. My husband installed it permanently in the
power cord bay.

He cut the power cord and put a plug on the motorhome side. He put a plug on the cord that comes out of the transfer box and plugged it into the surge guard that he mounted permanently on the floor of the bay. Then he plugged the other end of the long power cord into the other side of the surge guard, that way no one ever sees it. He said otherwise someone
could steal it. Even if you chain it to the pedestal all it takes is bolt cutters to cut it loose. Also I don't have to worry about getting it in and out, plugging it in and messing with it. This way its just part of the system.

Stackable refrigerator wine racks and shatterproof wine glasses.

My next purchase is going to be a jack. I don't know what would be best. Can anyone steer me in the right direction? I am thinking something like this.

Get an 8 or 10 ton one, they pump easier.

Also the higher capacity jacks are larger based and are much less inclined to tip over.
