A new replacement fabric for the main slide out awning. Then a 12 pack of beer for the Norcold to keep chilled.

Got tired of the wife or kids taking the "RV iphone charger" out of the RV.
Found this at HD, fits tight so it appeared as not remove able. Also wrote a check to start getting electric at the storage facility. My batteries will be happy.

I had to replace my Propane leak Detector, and a new carburetor for the Onan Generator.

New Eagle RE-1 controller for our MotoSat HD system. Old controller burned out so spent the $899 for the new controller. Installed it myself and found that the new GPS would get a good signal even through the fiberglass and foil bubble wrap insulation. Kind of surprised it worked.
One thing nice about the new controller is that it will work with a new RF Mogul top unit and can be reprogrammed to work with Dish or Direct.
Takes 2 min from the time I turned it on the first time till I was watching a show. NEAT!!

Thanks for the good report. I have the MotoSat also with an SD2 controller. Based on your experience, I'm thinking about going ahead with the Eagle RE-1 controller. The SD2 is still working but isn't GPS enabled at all and can take a very long time to lock on the sats. How was the install? I'm going to the Tampa Super Show and may have the guy who put on my system initial do the install.

I was hoping not to have to contribute to this thread - again, but had to buy two chassis batteries (Duracell).

Me too. Just bought two Napa 8Ds. Very big and heavy. Fortunately the guy removed and replaced them for free. Very happy with Napa. AAA card gave me a nice discount too. I will have to replace the other two probably in a year or so. Will head back to Napa. Nice folks!

Mass Air Flow sensor. PowerMax Boondocker PM4B-60 converter to replace the Progressive Dynamics 9260C that died on the last day of our trip to Refugio SB. Could have gone all week without it, with our 520 watts of solar and six 6V GC-2 batteries.
Earlier this year six Interstate GC-2 batteries from Costco for $83.95 each, to feed the 2000 watt inverter. Flow Rite battery watering system for above battries.
