I bought two GC-2 batteries at Sams yesterday. Some of their stock was labeled L5 and some was M5. I asked and was told the M5's were the freshest. Seems like they used to use a date sticker that even I could understand.

There are no two ways about it....all those magnets (windshield, side windows, entry door) suck but the other (outside) alternative is either no shades or snaps and/or suction cups which then require a ladder. I really did not want to drill holes in my coach. I somehow take comfort in knowing that the magnets can be removed and there will be no holes...

They are well made and look great. The picture I posted was during the trial fit so it had a few wrinkles. Once up they fit like a glove and look very nice! I'll see if I can snap a few pictures.

Low temps projected to be in the 20s next week so we bought an electric blanket and space heater as I suspect we might need them. DW is trying out the blanket right now...

Hey Guys
I bought 2 new battery's and they had the little white stickers and were marked July 15
Not sure on yours but if true I'd take them back and ask for newer ones.

Thank you tankcj. They are visible, but not unsightly. After a while my guess is that you wouldn't even notice...unless you were purposefully looking for them. The outside magnets might be a bit of a issue every time you take a squeegee to the window...but like everything else...the benefit outweighs the cost...IMHO.

Michael is it possible to post the details on the HiViz driving/fog lights? That got my immediate interest and you did a really great job of modifying the TV.

Just bought a 12" Black Kitchen Utensil Rack. This will help save space in my kitchen drawers.
