What was the last thing you bought for your RV ?

New male end to replace the coach shore line and the female end on our 12 foot, 50amp extension cord.
Originals got caught up in a puddle during a rain storm, while plugged in. Never lost power, no indication of an issue. Was checking things out a few days later, flipped it over, and saw the burn. Yes, we have an in-line Surge Guard 35550 on the coach.
When we got ready to leave, l had to pry apart the melted plastic with a screwdriver.
It was/is in the high 90’s, topping over 100 a few times. In Missouri, with humidity running in the 70-80 percent range. Finally cooling down and humidity dropping, too.
Cleaned the shore line male end up and are currently plugged in a new spot, different campground.
Now to go out and put the new ones on!

3 new dump valves, 3 dump valve seal kits, new water pressure regulator, BAL powered C-Jack to replace a dead one, 10' sewer hose, 9x18 camp rug, roll of gorilla all weather duct tape, 2 ball valves for the low point drains......a bunch of other random stuffs over the past month.

Replaced the dump valves today. What a treat. Also adjusted and cleaned/bleached the awning. Still a bunch of staining that won't come out. Gotta figure something out for that.

How did you clean the awning? I heard you spray it down with the bleach mix, then roll it up. Let it sit an hour or two, then unroll and spray down.
Mine is multi colored, so I can’t speak from experience.

Surprised that happened. I've had my cord connections in water many times, especially at home. At one campsite a couple of years ago we were flooded twice in less than 24 hours and the surge suppressor was under water. No problems. Never noticed until we got home that it was full of water. Took it apart, cleaned & dried it out. It's been working great since. I wonder if there was a problem where you were at with the campground power supply.

If I have a connection that is distant, I will set it up on an overturned plastic bin, or in leveling block - anything to keep it off of the ground.

That's good idea, I have plenty of leveling blocks. Now, if at all possible with my collection of extension cords, I keep the surge suppressor inside the electrical bay.

“Spray Nine” works great for cleaning awnings.

Originally, yes, 1 cup of bleach in 1 gallon of water in the pump sprayer. Soak it down with that mixture, roll up and let it sit for an hour or so. Usually 90% of the staining is gone.

This time none of the staining was gone. So I spent 2 hours spraying it down with d-limonene and water mixture and scrubbing with a medium stiffness brush. That removed a majority of the crud. I then did two treatments of bleach water.

But, still have some staining. Might mix up a stronger mixture of bleach and see if that helps.

A new to me tow rig, 2012 RAM 3500 with the 6.7 HO Cummins. I dearly love my 1993 F350 Turbo Diesel, it is in awesome shape, but I really needed more ponies and torque... Now I have to convince myself to sell the F350 I've had for almost 20 years, love to keep it but honestly don't need two 1 ton duallies.

I've had good results using LA's Totally Awesome Cleaner...
