+1

Memory foam? Not for me, I don't really want the bed to remember what goes on in there. Do they make a "Denial Foam" mattress? If so, I'm in!

Ultra Guard mud flap

I installed an Ultra Guard Mud Flap to protect our toad. It was on sale at Camping World, however to do it right, there is a stainless steel angle plate that is pre drilled for the flap at a cost of only $60.00. It took just 2 stainless steel screw on chain links and 4 stainless eye bolts to attach the angle plate to the the frame of the motorhome. Cost of the chain link and eye bolts were less than $15.00. It took less than 30 minutes to install. I still don't understand why Camping World wanted $290.00 for the installation.

I bought a 50 amp surge protector also. They had a cheapie plastic box that you cover the 2 connectors with and put a padlock on it which I got. Of course someone could smash the box or cut the wire and take it but it would slow them down. About $360 for that protector would hate to see it walk.

I figure neighbors would notice someone out there smashing the box or using bolt cutters to get it, so hoping that helps. If someone wants it bad enough though they will get it.

In the last couple of months I've bought 2 15k AC's, a dome satellite, 2 flat screeens. All new Maxx Airs and skylights. Bay closures on some, new window wash reservoir, 2 new power window mechanisms. We redid the roof with liquid roof. New ATS, got a bigger one too but not sure if we will use it. Air brake assembly to hook up our toad. New converter/charger, 2 new 12 volt batteries, I keep thinking of more.

Its in the shop getting new AC compressor and hoses, idler pulley, belts, seals and brakes and routine maintenance. Lots of $$$$ and not done yet.

Smart move Tom we just had a power outage here in the park and took some serious damage to one of our power inverters. A Progressive Surge Protector will be my next purchase.

Thumbs up

Bought a little area rug that somewhat matches the carpet in the Class B. I got it for a modest $1.79.
