I finished installing a complete LED light conversion in the Classic including the stove light. I put dual pairs of LED strips over the kitchen sink, bathroom sink and the rear bedroom for when more light is needed. We can switch between one pair or two pair with the replacement power rocker switch for these three fixtures.

All LEDs were warm white. They were purchased from led4rv,net a few weeks ago.

A five pole aluminum flag holder was at the post office from John Leake (sandpaper on the forum) and I picked it up today. The price was $185 delivered.

He recommended the 6' extending to 12' aluminum Twist Lok pole (part number 9272) from Mr. LongArm. They only sell to dealers, so they recommended:

A&M Products based in Missouri price was $16.61 each plus UPS
800-670-1356
www.polesandmore.com

A standard carton is six poles.

Another project finished today. The top to the propane cover blew away on the previous owner. I do not think this one is going any where with the oversized rivers.Click image for larger version

Mine is bowed in the top from the cover being held down too tight. Now the clamp just hangs down, doesn't secure anything. Do you have additional support in the top to offset the pressure from the clamp?

Bought 5 meters of soft white LEDs, which after some cutting, soldering and wiring will replace the glaring florescent tube overheads. (1 done so far)
Also removed both A/C covers and cleaned the fins on the evaporator (outside)with vinegar and water (and a wet/dry vac and air hose). This removed 14 years of dirt, bugs and built up playa dust on the squirrel cage blower fins and evaporator coil. Replaced what was left of the intake foam filters with some more modern filter fabric and tightened the loose mounting bars on the inside. Also cleaned up and zip tied the mess of wires and trimmed the overhanging white vinyl at the air vents. This to help improve the circulation.
Cleaned the carpet in the front a couple of times with our green machine (that was well worth it!).
And for good measure, put in a new water pump and air pressure tank.
Next week we pick up the grandkritters for their first camping trip!

The clamp is adjustable to tighten, maybe you're already tried that.

A set of X-Chocks, since we finally have two axles; and a pair of LED bulbs to replace the last incandescent holdovers above the stovetop.
