I ordered Magne Shades for the windshield, driver's window, entry door window, and the window just aft of the entry door on our 2017 Dutch Star... and we don't even have it yet! We also ordered their tire covers.

What my DW forgot to mention was we got the tow dolly with surge brakes.

We also purchased a TST 507 Flow Thru 6 tire TPMS. Also got a couple of Non-Flow Thru 507 sensors for the tow dolly. Also got a pair of Pacific Dualies 135 degree valve stem extensions for the outside dual tires.

Next items to be received are more toilet parts (new hand spray and vacuum break) and a repeater for the TST TPMS to improve range.

I have never liked the braided valve extension hoses for the motorhome tires. They are a known trouble item. Some people have them for years and no problems, but many people have lost tires to their penchant for leaking. I finally broke down and ordered the dually valve stems. They are long enough to put air in the motorhome tires without a problem.I installed them myself. (not bad for a 76 year old.) Motorhome tires are easy to break from the rim. I removed each tire, let out the air. Used a extra large screwdriver to break the tire loose from the rim.
(not hard at all.) I had a large wrecker bar that I used to push the tire back from the rim. Took two large screwdrivers and placed the handles between the rim and the tire. This gave me room to reach the old valve stems. I placed a mail circular ( the cardboard kind you get in the mail) beneath the old stem to catch the old valve stem. I dropped the first one with nothing to catch it. It took forever to fish it out of the tire. Then installed the new valve stems. They are wonderful! Easy to get to and no worries about leaking.

Replacement cooling unit for the NORCOLD that's been getting anemic. This new one is HELIUM charged, touted as 5-10 degrees colder, performs better in hotter climates, and the gas is inert! If it ever leaks your voice just gets squeaky

Please No comments about residential.. Could'a easily done it but it simply isn't the way to go when boondocking 99.9%!of the time., if NORCOLD and Dometic hadn't caused this problem and this technology was developed 10 years ago, I seriously doubt residential would have ever taken off.

Second MaxxAir ll vent cover, a Valterra water pressure regulator to replace the oldie that had slowed water to a trickle(whee!! we have water again!!) and some finish buffing pads for the D-A so I can do a better (read as quicker too) wax job.

And I thought boats were money pits

I got a RedPort wifi extender, an electric head, and replaced both boards on my 1200LRIM. The wifi extender I got off of eBay, the head from Camping World and the board kit from the Norcold Guy.

They were all easy installations and I'm excited to try out the limits of the wifi extender later this week!
