Manual transfer switch as a spare. As I have had two auto transfer switches fail and those switches are hard to find.

I never had any luck with windshield repair on a large motorhome windshield. Because of the extreme stress on large RV glass, they always want to continue cracking. I was just in Alaska too and rented a car at Fairbanks with a totally cracked windshield. Check into Progressive Insurance, they have zero deductible on windshield glass. I got them to buy me a new one for free in my bus motorhome.

Made a 2 part upper & lower thin plexi-glass window for the screen door, now we can have the ac or heat on when the outside door is open being able to see out better. Made it so it can easily pop out when not needed. Have about 55.00 in it from Home Depot & a couple hrs. labor.

Great idea .... and I DON'T need photos.
A better choice of material, IMHO, would be only a few bucks more, LEXAN/polycarbonate. It wont scratch, crack or yellow as fast

We used 1/8 Lexan, being a custom sign shop owner & building lighted sign boxes we know about the right material to use. One thing for sure,, take your time cutting it & use a dremmel tool to get a nice finished look. Home Depot has the little white plastic swivel pins to keep it in place, they are about 3 bucks for a pack of 8, you will need 2 packs if your going to use 2 panels. They sell small lexan 30''x 48'' panels, I used 2 of them at 27''x30'' with the bottom panel cut at a L for the slide on the inside door latch. For those that want a pic. I will get some up soon.
Thanks Gary

Gary, did you mount these on the inside or outside of the screen door. We have a screen protector to keep our pups safe plus a Camco push bar on the inside.

Happy to hear that you used LEXAN (figured as much with the cost mentioned, but.... )

Not sure what will burn out, the block heater or the outlet?
