I use the GFI outlet in the engine compartment to plug in the engine block heater during the winter months while in storage.

Can you leave that on all winter? I would have thought it would burn out.

Just ordered Magne Shade windshield, driver's and entry door covers. As the windshield will be a difficult install I'm letting them do it (additional $100). They have successfully installed a set on the same year/model once already. This will be our third set of Magne Shades. Pricy, but an excellent product.

New TST 507RV 6-Sensor Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). Just completed 2-week, 1,750 mile trip. All sensors worked perfectly showing tire PSI and Temps. A great product...easy to install, all sensors and monitor worked perfectly, out of the box.

Very interesting to watch tire psi and temps change while driving. Very reassuring to know tires are NOT underinflated/overheated. Made the trip less stressful and enjoyable!

Highly recommend the Truck System Technology TPMS.

Had a similar thing happen to us yesterday going through Mobile. I'm going to have to get an RV GPS as well.

Not for tri-axle, although they will be recycled after a few years to put on the tri-axle husband does own ... One is a spare.

Two windshield chip repair kits...just in case. If I fix fast less chance of spreading.
