Oh oh! I have another one. Well actually this was inspired by rich Lure.
I installed an idicator light for Water pump "armed". It is in my control panel. When ever either one of my switches is one the light comes on. $3.99 for the LED.
I put one of these in for the outside lights as well. I am always leaving them on too.

ID:	33048 Damn, it worked! Ok, it's not a modification, but I found it in the half price bin at Bed Bath & Beyond. Does this look like it belongs in an Airstream or what?

I just figured out how to use the camera on my new cell phone today. Not bad if I say so myself..... Getting delusions of adequacy!

Hi, that's really a neat looking tea pot, even if you just use it for a decoration. I wanted to show pictures of my improvements, modifications, and repair ideas, but I spent more time on this computer trying to post pictures than it took to do all of my improvements Etc. [I gave up] I'm not in the computer generation. I can build or repair almost anything, but I can't post pictures on this forum!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Frustrated in Lakewood.

I guess, if I make it to the Casini Ranch Rally, I will show all interested parties what I have done in person.

It wasn't the legs man...

Had to have them as soon as I saw the color.

Neighbor says they are "the bomb"!
Whatever that means.

I do know that on sale at Target for $25 was "cool".

The difference between 35 & 58?
23 yrs. of not being "hip".

Yes, I have seen the orange rods used in the past and they cost much more.

Elvis lights

My favorite el-cheapo mod is the addition on some $9.99 rope lights wrapping over the interior curbside front windows, around the front and ending just forward of the door. Makes for indirect lighting!

Awnings are expensive items, and over the years I've noticed a few threads where members have reported that the awning pull strap has broken off or has split, e.g
http://www.airforums.com/forum...tion-8700.html
This sometimes seems to be caused by ultra-violet light damage to the end of the strap, the only part of the awning material exposed to the sun. This can be fixed by shielding this strap end when the trailer is left for long periods. One method is to take an old stocking, or similar, slip it over the pull end of the strap when the awning is open, and roll it into the awning when you close it.

That is outstanding! You really did pimp your ride. Even this old man appreciates that! Did you wire your running lights to be on powered by the TT 12volt system?

Could I ask: just how did you do that? smile

Can you tell us more about how you did that?
