Thanks for the offer, we'd love that. Nice picture, it looks like Leon installed the flag holder with the solid side outside. Did he have to get special extensions for the muffler clamps? I bought the stainless muffler clamps from JC Whitney and I have the 3 pole holder from polease. Is their additional hardware that I need to install the light box? Does he need to modify the flag pole holder? Is there anyway I can have it by Monadnock? I want to fly my flags for the business meeting. Lots of ???s sorry you can email me if you want to give me more detail.

Thanks again for the offer, I much appreciate it. My son was going to help me make one but he can't do metal work if it needs mods.

We did install the flag holder with the solid side out, we think it looks "cleaner" this way. I believe he just used standard muffler clamps, I'll ask him when he gets home from work. We needed to put two screw holes in the solid section of the flag holder to hold the light "kit" that he made, and you got to attached the wiring to something (I have no idea what, as that's his job).

I think we can have all the light kits made by our next rally - one for you, another for Gail & Titu and one for the five place flag holder we donated to the Region 1 Rally auction. I'll be sure to do up the directions on how to make the light kits and will get them posted here on the forums (as promised about 1 million years ago).

We made our flag poles out of 12' telescoping paint roller extensions (from Lowes). Work great!

Michelle,

Would you please send me the information on the spotlight?

Yes, I'll do, esp since you were the one who pointed me to the source for five place flag holder brackets.

I'll also go down to the barn tonight and take a close up picture or two to post to the forum per Chuck's suggestion.

Need another pic

ok...looks like the flag holder is on "backwards", and the light fixture box is simply screwed to it...but how does the holder connect to the tongue jack?

(reduce the original pics to 640x480, and we'll see a bigger shot, hence, more detail. )

note the weather-proof switch on the side of the light box....


any more detail on the specific type of light fixture that is? there was some questions earlier in the thread that didn't make sense to me..."halogen..not halogen...too hot...not enough light....." what exactly is it?

We'll be picking up the parts we need to make more of these light kits tonight. I'll then provide the exact parts list so folks will know what we've used.

I've attached a picture of the flag holder bracket that we are using(wkerfoot's setup). Shows a welded on curved back section that fits around the jack post, attaches with muffler clamps.

Flag light question

Are the "low voltage" spots and landscape lights 12v or do they have to be modified?

How to Attach a Flag Pole Holder to a 23'

Will a "standard" flag pole holder attach to the jack post on my 23'? The jack mechanism is only about a 1/4 inch away from the tank cover, and the front of the post has the light. It looks like that would be in the way of the center pole.

I used some plastic spacers to pull the top out a little and it worked fine. one on the bottom and two on the top was enough. You might have to place the electric wire for the jack in between the u-bolt and the jack. I also moved my plug holder around to the back of the flag holder.

Rob Baker can have these made, you might send him a PM, I'm not sure if they're on the website or not.

Here's a picture of one of these on Frank's (62overlander) rig, and he got it from Rob:
