Last Purchase a New HD TV

Just picked up a Sanyo 26 inch HD LCD TV to replace that Old 19 Inch Phillips CRT in the Overhead.
I installed a 3/4" Plywood cross brace plus a Wall Mount inside the original enclosure. Trimmed some of the Original Oak Surround Moulding to fit the opening and mounted the New TV.
It fits quite well and allows for the HD /PVR Satellite Receiver to be situated below the TV rather than in a cupboard.
There may even be room for the DVD Player in the adjacent cabinet and a place to store a few DVD's and the Remote!

Details of where you bought them, price, and how I (a novice) could install. Difference it made?

Got the fans on ebay. Fridge Fan I just looked the fans again to set the link, and they seem to be painted black now. But it looks like the same fan. Install instructions are listed farther down on the page. They are powered from the Fridge light, but that stays 'hot' all the time so I added a switch. I had the switch in one of my boxes of junk so I can't help you find one of those. I'll do some looking later today and if I find something that will work I'll post it.

Oh, you also ask if it made a difference. Yes, the circulation really helps keep the frost off the fins. The temp does not vary as much throughout the fridge.

DIY Gen Exh. Vent Pipe

I've been looking at the Gen-turi generator exhaust venting pipe and decided to try to make my own. 10' X 4" round downspout pipe, 3' aluminum bar stock, 3' aluminum angle, a piece of mud-flap, 1" steel electrical conduit 90 degree pipe, and 1" conduit coupling, and a bunch of SS Screws. It ain't real pretty but it works like a champ, and I can put it up or take it down in less than 3 min. (without the ladder)

Got a Aero Turbine muffler and just installed it myself. To bad it's underneath it's so bright and shiny.

Today off CraigsList, I bought a Curtis 13.3 inch TV with built in DVD player. (He asked $100 but I got it for $75) It works great.

Camping World is still offering the President's Club discount to Good Sam members, so I went and got a Volt meter to plug into the wall plug so I can see the 110v into coach. Also some 3 row ice cube trays, and new carpets for the steps, and 1 roll of TP.

saved a bundle

You know what they say, once you go AGM ... LOL

seriously, that's the best upgrade you can do. I've got 4 lifeline AGM's for my house batteries. Never need any attention. They just always work, even after sitting long periods in storage.

When the two chassis batteries go south, it will be two Oddysy AGMs
