Peter, good photo sequence on rivet installation. Thanks for sharing!

When I got home I found several packages sitting by my desk. One of them had louvers like those used on the Classic series only difference is they are beige plastic instead of chromed plastic.

I looked for ever trying to find chrome louvers like those installed on the Classic's but only found them in white or black. A recent search turned up a dealer that sold them in black, white and the newly produced beige.

I think on a painted Argosy the beige louvers will look a lot better than chrome louvers.

I'll post some of the other things I got tomorrow.

Brad

Brad,
I ended up buying stainless steel ones for the 345 from Atlantic Marine Depot via Ebay. They were almost the same size as the originals. I just had to add a few rivets to cover some old holes... and you just never can have enough rivets...

I trust, Greg, the new owner of this fine Rig, won't mind that I post this picture

Peter,

Considering how popular the "What did you get for your Motorhome Today" thread is you ought to start "What did you get for your Trailer Today" on the trailer side of the house. As many trailer owners as there are on this forum a thread like that should explode with posts!

Considering the great ideas that people come up with I'd be watching both threads

Brad

Peter, I agree with Brad!
I started this thread based on a similar one I saw on another forum and it was wildly popular, and lots of fun!
Now... Get to it, as you are qualified! LOL.

If I may be so bold as to suggest that thread is far more dangerous to my wallet than the federal Government! I have no idea why I keep coming back to read it! It does nothing but cost me money!

Somewhere between the arrival of the cyclops dual inflation set up and the porter-cable multi-tool I have realized I have spent more on stuff for the motor home than diesel! Although I have to admit the multi-tool is a great item to have for most any job around the rv or home.

Now if I could only figure out how to get frequent flyer points from Amazon or E-bay

Richard, they look good.

A couple of years ago I learned the hard way about using normal kitchen faucets in a motorhome. RV faucets are designed so that no water is left in the faucet when the water system is drained for the winter. We bought a kitchen faucet at Home Depot and didn't notice that it had a stub pipe hanging down with the hot & cold pipes that was to be used for a sprayer. Our sink didn't have a provision for a sprayer so I left it capped off. Unfortunately that little stub was filled with water and over the winter here in Richmond it froze and split the pipe. Didn't find out about it until I pressurized the system the next spring.

You might want to check your faucet for something similar. Even if you use a sprayer you would need to drain the water out of the stub. Then again maybe it doesn't get as cold in Canada as it does in Kentucky

Here's some pictures of a few more things that came in while I was out of town on business.

Mud Dauber screens for the furnace and hot water heater. I live in Mud Dauber paradise so these are essential items to have.

Next is an adjustable hole cutter. This type of cutter is used in the sheet metal industry however it also makes nice holes in sheet aluminum. Since I'm making a new instrument cluster for the dash I needed something that could cut holes for a variety of sizes. A friend of mine who is building his own airplane is using one just like it and swears by it.

I picked up a new service entrance panel and a 50 amp transfer switch. I'm happy to say the installation went better than I had hoped for.

And last but not least I finally found what I hope is the appropriate material to make a gasket for the stove vent. The Argosy gasket is missing in action so I'm hoping to get this in stalled before the Mud Daubers start flying which is likely to be any day now

Hey Dave, is the "Ebay-Bucks" program finishing to make way for the Ebay-Pounds-Shillings-and-Pence? ROFL...

Brad has been a busy boy...

Good job we have been good recently... well except for these...
6 pass Perma-Cool transmission cooler... with fan and a remote filter kit..
The 6 pass 10" X 21" cooler WITHOUT the fan, is rated for 30,000lb GVW... I think it will be enough...
