You could goto Club La Villa and probably get the hook up on those kegs. If not you can try off front beach road...plenty of neat little shops with mods for the younger crowd (Purple Haze, Magic Mushroom, etc) Finish the kegs off with some ribs at Pineapple Willy's and you are set!

Oh yeah, my favorite mod was my new "DiamondPlate" rockguard. No current pics, but coming soon to a thread near you.

Been a long time actually. My good friend moved there in 1996. I went to visit in 98. He worked at Winn Dixie at the "Y". He lived on escanaba right behind the shell on middlebeach road. I always used to have fun when I was there, but the strip gets too crowded when people are cruising at night.

XM Radio ranks number one favorite mod for under $100 (hardware only of course).
Indoor/outdoor weather station from the Weather Channel next.

Where did you mount your outdoor weather sensor.

I have Sirius radio in my truck, someone on the forum provided the tip to just park close to the trailer and tune in the signal, works great.

Hey there Jim,

We mounted the indoor panel on the upper Kitchen cabinet adjacent to the entry door. I mounted the outside unit adjacent to the entry door hinge with Velcro tape. Works great and stays in place when I forget to remove it and place it indoors for travel.

Happy Trails

Favorite mod under $100?

Whichever one is online right now! I read this thread title wrong and had to share the chuckle.

Now back to our program already in progress....

There might be a few mods in Wisconsin or Minnesota worth that much, but the rest of them aren't worth more than a cheap dinner and a movie.

Trash

One of the "mods" we have been using that a lot of people at the campsites seem to like is the collapsing trash bin. I got my at the dealer in Manteca. They come in three sizes (S, M, L). We got the medium. Comes with its own cover and folds up to about the size of a large serving tray. We keep a roll of Costco trashcan liners in the back.

Once set up, we place the opened trash can just outside the front door for easy toss aways from working in our 19' Bambi's kitchen. Works great and no mess inside the trailer.

I added flex connections to the water pump and installed a Sureflo accumulator Shurflo Accumulator Tank - Camping World.

Total cost was ~$60. It eliminated the pipe rattling throughout the AS, and decreased the pump run time.

Flex connection

Can you get this flex connection at camping world also or did you get it at the hardware store.I hate the rattling ans would also like a tank as well to keep the pump running longer.

The flex connectors came from the local hardware store.

Winterizing on the cheap!

Hi all -

LOVE the thread!

Since I just did the winterizing thing I am in that mode - not that the AS is away for the season!

Looking for a trip between X-mas and New Years!!! Any ideas out there? in the SW, please?!? Thought about Phoenix, with Taliesen West.... Want something warm! Still in the 50's daytime here, Sorry!!!! for the northern folks!!!

Back to the theme - since I just winterized, this is my current contribution...

#1 Create a Compressor Blow-out fitting for the city water inlet. Less than $20 at the local Ace HW...

#2 Then there is the "oil-filled heater" that you can get at any local home center for about $35 or less. Keeps the interior decent emough to pop in ANY time and enjoy - no matter the outside temps. This of course, assumes that you have a plug in....

Keep using that "Silver Palace" for any and every excuse....

It doesn't do anybody any good in storage!!!!!!!

That reminds me - there is a February rally that the FCU is hosting in AZ!!!! Check it out!!!! See you there!!!

Peace out!

Axel
