On the last two units we always used Campingworld in North charleston, since we bought them there. This unit we bought from boat and Rv in ridgeland , sc. But camping world does work on Coachman so we will probably still use them. They have been great and I have never had a problem.

We actually needed 8 6V house batteries and needed 2 new chassis batteries so 10 total. I think the batteries were the originals from 2006

Oh ya, we added a Pro-Fill System to the 8 house batteries. One Pro-Fill kit covered 2 batteries so we needed 4 kits @ $65 a piece. We didn't have to have those but sure will save time when checking the water levels.

New seals and repair kit for Travelor commode that no longer would hold water. Installed same (ugh!)Next time--if there is a next time--I will first use one of those high pressure flush wands like I had for our old class C to clean out the passageway to the black water tank. (lots of "cling-ons") New Culligan sediment water filter and installed inside rear compartment. (have built-in drinking water filtration system onboard)

I believe you might have to use some sort of cable lock and wrap it around something immobile, but I'm not sure.

Hopefully, someone who has this particular surge/voltage protector can chime in and help both of us out.
I have the same surge protector. I have a length of chain about 2' in length with a lock on one end thah I attach to the surge protector. The other end also has a lock on it that will allow me to lock it to the utility post or whatever happens to be secure and close. By having the other end with a lock allows you to adapt to any size post. You may need a liitle more ten a 2' section of chain

That's close to what I did. I had two keyed alike locks I wasn't using so I put one on the male end of the RV cord, and one on the female end of the Surge protector cord and a short length of 3/8s chain between the two locks. I leave it chained togather while in storage

Wow indeed. I replaced my two 6 volt batteries with two 12 volt and added two more 12 volt batteries for less than $350.00. I added two 235 watt solar panels to the roof for $640.00 and I can dissapear into the wilderness forever, or until I run out of supplies. And I can watch DirectTv on my flat screen.

Ordered a new step in today for installation next Wednesday.

Had a Sony Radio/cd player installed today for my sirius radio. Now we can bop down the road. I JUST had to have that, best thing ever for vehicles, we have them in all our others.

Dullest? I just bought some special clothes pins for DW's new expanding clothes rack that hangs on the ladder rack. The 5/16" rods will not allow using anything else. $8 for 48 pins/clamps.
