the last thing I bought for my Arctic Fox 5th wheel is a 140 W Kyocera solar panel. I put it on the roof which already had 5 of the same panels, and hopefully that is going to provide me enough electricity in the winter time so that I don't have to move my panels up and down to face the sun whenever I get to a new camping spot. I think it's a lot safer and easier to have enough panels so that they can all lay flat and still provide the electricity that I need. So far it's working but it's too early to tell for sure.

Don't have my RV but will get it in March or April. Did buy a used brake system off of eBay as well as a new Falcon 2 tow setup. It's amazing, even when you don't have an RV they cost you money!

We just got our new Winnebago trailer in November. It came with a starter kit which included a 6' sewer hose. It didn't take me long to figure out that piece of junk needed upgrading. Amazon to the rescue. The UPS ferry just delivered a Rhinoflex 15' sewer hose with all sorts of nifty attachments. It should make my next trip to the dump station a little less "exciting".

My wife said she never saw somebody get so excited over a sewer hose.

Threw a main bearing Saturday at 315,497 miles while cruising down the highway in Florida. Go figure, we "live" in Missouri. WE installed 3 timing belts and resealed the engine while we had it.
It was a great car and we will miss it Greatly.

New Toad:
2001 Jeep Wrangler TJ Sport
4.0L I6 w/ 5-Spd and AC
139,000 miles.
Burgundy / Tan / Brown Soft Top

Now to find a tow bar setup!!!!!
(will dolly it home w/ rear drive shaft out, when we head back)
I have the same year wrangler. I picked up these U shaped brackets somewhere on the web with the bolts for $50.00. I needed something that comes on and off easy because I use the jeep to snow polw with also.

Wow... I'd be very weary of something you found "somewhere on the web" before I'd trust it to reliably handle the stress/strain of towing a multi-thousand pound vehicle down the road at highway speeds. There's a lot of strain on those parts--especially during even moderate stops, let alone a hard stop.

Hopefully you are (or consulted with) an appropriately qualified person who evaluated the web-discovered-U-bolts' ability to handle it.
