Two Bargman 84 Series LED Back-up Light Modules, One LED Center Mount Brake Light to be installed for the first time. This is a Steady or Strobe from Super Bright LEDs, am debating the strobe option. Two used Head Light Modules for the coach, the old ones are bad enough, I have to hold a candle up to them to see if they are lit. The reflectors are gone, they are from a 1990 Audi 100 series and I understand this is a common problem in certain parts of the country. Dropped the Drivers side rear brake rotor off at the Ford Dealer to get turned, will have to stop off at CarQuest to order the rear wheel seals tomorrow and Ace to get some SS Screws to mount the new Tail Lights. Old screws twisted off from rust and I cannot figure out how to remove them. Started installing the new cruise control also and ordered the Heater for the Haldex Air Dryer. More to come.

What was the last thing you bought for your RV ?

After my son got married and moved out, I needed a way to get my RV cover up to the roof by myself. I tried the winch thing from CW, but my cover proved to be too heavy for it. Someone in this forum suggested a drywall hoist from Harbor Freight. Cumbersome and expensive, but it works great. It's also a big help when performing my annual rooftop maintenance, and more recently when I replaced my satellite antenna.

....or like I did - enlist the help of the ~35 year old high school coach/ex college and semi pro football player next door. We used the waxed edges of a ladder too. He slid that 90 pound a/c 12 feet up on the roof before I could help on an adjoining ladder. Dang, but it's he-- to get old as I would have done it alone 20 years ago

I do like that drywall lift though but it might need outriggers for more stability to safely lift a chunk like a $600+ a/c

Just a comment on the use of a strobe brake light. Some people cannot tolerate a strobe light, and might get a migraine. I find that I have to look away from a strobe light, and this is not the safest thing when driving.

New MaxxAir fan with remote control. I got tired of climbing on the bed to reach the controls on the old manual one. We moved the manual one to the bathroom to replace the noisy excuse for a fan that came with the trailer. DH had planned on doing it himself, but we hit some road debris on the way to the Yellowstone rally that caused some plumbing problems. We ended up taking it to the dealer, a good idea since the ended up having to drop the entire belly. It cost more to fix the plumbing than to move both fans.
