New 50 foot Pocket Hose ($17.88 Walmart). Old one lasted over two years but I left it pressurized overnight and found a pin hole leak the next morning. My fault.

Third brake light. Old one melted into the housing. Not available. 15" led instead mounted to a 1/4 x 6" x 18" bit of Poplar. Hey, it's 16 years old...

These are not very good for an RV. Problem is, they are too small at the ID and cut volume in half from a 1/2" id standard hose. Better yet use a 3/4" id hose for better showers. You should never go smaller with a supply hose than your interior plumbing lines. Although convenient, pocket hoses are way too small of an id and not recommended for drinking from.

New a/c duct vents (6 pcs) that are fully controllable as far as airflow direction and amount of opening area. The existing have way more area covered by louver fins, restricting air flow

Picked up the TT last weekend and already got a bunch of the essentials on the way. Pair of GC2's and related hardware, inverter, and bug screens for all of the appliance vents!

I don't use the pocket hose for main water supply. It's not for potable water. Great for windshield washing, wheels and tank flushing.

Have you ever looked at the shower hose ends? The hole is about 1/8 inch. Unless you are using every faucet in the motorhome at the same time, a 1/2 to 3/4 hose would make no difference.

I use 1/2" hoses for water supply. Easier to work with and store. The pec plumbing used in most if not all coaches is only a half inch. No need for larger.

Not mine! My shower was terrible when I got the bus. Looked nice but only dribbled. I took the shower head apart and drilled out the passages. Got rid of the wimpy hose. The whole system is only as good as the smallest ID in the plumbing. I like my showers to FLOW!
