What did you get for your trailer today?

1. New faucet in the bathroom with one handle, so we don't have to mess with the hot and cold water handles to get the right temperature. I think it will save some water also.

2. Installed one shelf in the street side of the bedroom and 1 DC outlet under the shelf.

3. Installed another DC outlet under the bench seat in the dining area.

These will allow us to charge our flashlights, Ipod, Ipad, Computer, Batteries wireless headset , CB, etc.

I need three of these! What a great idea... Looks like quality but very inexpensive construction.

My Caravel got a really nice pair of electric shears to cut a patch for some outside wheel well damage from the PO.

In response to a request that I share a picture of our smoke colored Fantastic Vents with the bug screen inserts. So far we're very happy with them. Thanks!

Here are the Andersen levelers "in action" (or, "inaction" :-) ).

These are ridiculously easy, innovative and even fun!! I'm at a gorgeous Army CoE site which is impeccably groomed and is slightly off level - dipping a bit on the street side. No problem! Level on the bumper, DW watching the level and a quick backup on to the levelers to EXACTLY the right place! No guessing, no pre-stacking Lego blocks and boards - just drive on them until the level bubble is good then slide the wedges under the opposite end of the tire. Could not be easier!

SteveSueMac- I love the theory of those levelers, but I had to return mine. There wasn't enough space between the two wheels to fit the leveler. Maybe because I have 16" wheels.

I also really like these. Since I have a ProPride I put them in front and pull forward. Eliminates the chance of the PP head swiveling while backing up. Pulling off you either backup or pull forward and drive off of them (assuming you pulled forward to get on). Only thing to remember is that the one will end up between the two sets of tires. So stop and remove it.

Since I solo most of the time I bought an electronic level from Campingworld. Stick it on a small piece of 3M Locking Tab on the front window protector and I can watch that in the mirror. When it turns green stop and put the chock under the Anderson and lock in the Rotochocks.

Wayne when you put the one between the wheels did you try putting it at an angle so the tire would 'drive' up it?

Wow! Just watched a video on that! Would you suggest 4 for all 4 tires? Looks like an awesome product. Adding to Amazon wish list.

It's a storage facility. For RV's and buses based on the size. Price was $250 for two months. Paid every two months. Big roll up door. Enough room to park the truck and Airstream, and work around it with a ladder on all sides. Going to move some tools there later this week.

Since we bought used, and not saying the PO was lying, but I need to verify it doesn't leak for myself. I want to do the treatment with Corrosion X and that goes along with that sort of thing, when I get the time.

And well life happens, so now I can go about life without worrying if tomorrows rain storm means I need to go check the Airstream.

It rains a lot in Florida this time of year.

Bummer! With the 15s it's plenty of space. I was VERY nervous the first time we used them but rolling off them was a breeze and plenty of room between tires to stop before things could get ugly. Hadn't thought of the space with 16s.

I really do love these things!!

I don't think 4 are necessary. I'm using these to level curb and street side. Odds are good that when needed, a pair on one side or the other is all you need. So simple!! Love it!!
