Portable gas grill.......

Finally caved as we have found too many places that don't allow "charcoal" grills (due to fire hazard) which includes our Big Green Egg Mini Max.

Olympian 5500 Professional Series, sold under a Camco label. Decided on this because items has cast iron lower grates to better hold and distribute heat. So far so good, not as good as the mini max, but acceptable.

Using Coleman canisters now, will consider a fitting for the grill on our propane tank at some point.

Just kills us to have to carry two grills, but we "eat in" almost all the time.......

Regards!

Our brand new 2017 Thor has a broken receiver to include the inability to use the back up camera on the second to last day of our 10 day Colorado mountain adventure. We spent all today at Best Buy having one installed. Of course it didn't go as planned but made the best of it. The new one won't be able to run on the coach power like the first one did... The alternative would be to have the RV store repair it but it would take weeks and that is no bueno...

I bought one for my Norcold1200. Have you found any tuning info on line? I've set it up and it seems to work, but my reefer sometimes runs hotter than I think it should. Basic install is well documented.

A Bose soundbar for use with an Amazon Echo (Alexa), or with one of our phones.
Koni shocks for the rear.

Why would you have a 110 volt outlet in the engine compartment? I have one too but have never used it for anything. ????

It's OEM for the block heater. I use mine to power a flag light.

Mine is also switched in the hall control center (labeled Engine Heater) which makes it useful for many things once camped.

'Winging' its way via Amazon Prime and FedEx is a way to stay reasonably (hopefully !)cooler is a Carefree 701509 Black 15' x 9' Drop RV Awning EZ ZipBlocker. We've tried to sit outside midday this summer but the newer RVs with the shorter electric awnings just don't work as well as the old manual versions you can drop really low
