Thumbs up

Plus it won't damage the skin when it blows off in the slipstream after you've forgotten to take it off.

DW has a whole bag of those specialized clips under the kitchen sink that she thinks I know nothing about.

Earlier trailers (like my 1987) have a lever alongside the vent that opens a flap on the outside. The fan is engaged when the lever is slid to open.

we've struggled with the sliding double doors on the curb side closet jumping off the tracks when underway. there is a thread about this on the forum. But, since the solution is also a modification, I'll post it here.
I put my mod on my blog so that I could also share it with the wrest and Airstream Adventures FB pages. Here is the link to my solution.

Just saw the Dyson Hot/Cold fan at Costco. While it doesn't qualify for an under $100.00 mod it is on sale for $100.00 off the regular price (does that qualify?). Does anyone have one of these for their AS and if so, are they worth the high $$$ they are asking for them? Thanks for your comments good or bad.

We bought one when someone here posted about a deal from Woot. We LOVE ours! It's great to move air conditioned air throughout the camper and to take the chill off the air on a cold night letting you set your thermostat a bit lower. Nothing for the dog to get her ears snipped on either which is a great relief!

Don't know of there's anything better out there but very very happy with ours!

How much is the Dyson at Costco? Is it the AM04 or the new AM05 that they're selling? I'd be fine with the "old" model for a couple hundred bucks.

Poppy

Edit: Looked it up at the Costco site. Looks like they're selling the AM04, no price given. Heading that way today. Shiny object syndrome wins today.

I'd have to say my favorite mod was the propane/ CO detector.

Just bought one at Costco. Regular price $360.00, $110.00 off, sale price $250.00. They're $333.00 at Amazon.

I'll probably regret it in the morning.

Okay, I pulled the trigger on the Dyson Hot/Cold unit at Costco. Good thing I went back today. On Saturday there was a display set up and about 7-8 pallets on an isle end. This evening when I went back the display was gone and there were 6-7 units left. Boy those went fast.... I guess that $110.00 off the price was enough to make them fly off the shelves.

Hi, Okay; To keep this thread legitimate, Scott said that he will sell me his Dyson for under $100.00 at the Jackson Rancheria Rally.
