Just ordered ( look alike ) Wally Byam Hooks from sailboatstuff.com . They are the razor strop hooks and the price and quality was just right .

I replaced the refrigerator bulb with an LED. It was the last incandescent holdout (except for the microwave, but that doesn't matter). I'm not sure it was cost effective, but it bugged me.

We use a down blanket in our trailer that doesn't require electricity and it keeps us nice and warm. Just an idea for another option.

I just purchased this blanket for the trailer from Costco:
http://www.costco.com/ProductDisplay...mber=100096705

It's a very high quality blanket, very warm and well made. And the price is good!

Well, this is not good. I mentioned the other day that I ordered Byam hooks ( similar ) from sailboatstuff.com and just got an e-mail that they no longer carry that item ( true name from them was razor strop hook ). Bummer! Now I will go back and continue my search. This is what I did not do to my trailer today.

Here's what we got after seeing them installed in Riveted's AS:

BJÄRNUM Folding hook - IKEA

When closed they look like accents. I have 5 in the bedroom, 5 in the hall near the shower and 2 up front near the door. All up high.

The Fortress Gaslock is a lock for the propane cylinders as well as the aluminum propane tank cover. I worked with the manufacturer to develop one made specifically for our Airstream trailers because the aluminum cross member at the top that holds the propane cylinders has slightly different dimensions and is shaped differently than the steel cross member that holds the propane bottles down on other brands of trailers.
All I have done in the way of use is to install it, and then remove and replace it to get the propane bottles filled.
It does provide a little peace of mind to know that if someone wanted to steal the propane cover or bottles they will be discouraged, slowed down, or stopped. Propane isn't inexpensive, and we need it at times to keep warm on a cold night.

6 gallons of propane in a new aluminum tank with gauge (30 gallon tank all they would fill it) and a new General Insurance policy.
