Wet cell Interstate's but I think I got the wrong ones. Have asked Interstate about it last week and never received an answer. Probably should have gone with the LifeLine AGM's but just couldn't spend $2,000+ right now.

As far as wet batteries go interstate is the best. So not a bad move

I picked up the Gostick suction cup TV mount to allow us to mount a TV to the outside wall under the awning. Works GREAT and my 35 inch flat screen weighs only 16.5 lbs (max for Gostick is 30 lbs) and rides in the outdoor kitchen between the minifridge and the wall. JUST enough space to fit and not bounce around.

The Gostick TV mount is great. Wife picked one up at the FROG Rally and we used it for the first time this last weekend. Held the 32" tv great.

First trip in rig to Mackinaw city in June. Camper in a tent next to us got a little out of control with camp fuel around their fire. Fire had spread pretty fast into edge of wooded area close to us. Had to break out the fire extinguisher. Glad it was handy, and everyone else was glad as well. Bought a replacement.

Spark plugs, plug wires and valve cover gasket for the toad. Impromptu tune-up on the road.


Was 100 miles from RV. Toad started to miss and got worse quickly. Roadside diagnosis and a trip to the parts store. Replaced possible bad plug in parking lot - no help. Replaced plug wires (lifetime warranty) and purring like a kitten again. Back to RV. Following day replaced the remaining 3 plugs and valve cover gasket (leaking a bit). All in a days work on a Toyota Camry with 310,000 miles on it.
