4 K Monitor

Measurement wise, all of these would fit. But I stumbled onto the LG 25UM57-P Ultrawide and noticed the power consumption. ENERGY STAR Certified Displays | EPA ENERGY STAR

19.14 watts, which blew everything else I was looking out of the water. Even picked up a 12v adapter.

So this monitor is technically as wide as a 27 inch monitor but not as tall. Resolution is ok, not amazing. But it's also an IPS panel so it has TFT panels beat. Perfect all around boondocking monitor for my workflow.

I used to work on two 27 inch thunderbolt displays, this kind of simulates that on a smaller scale.

If anyone was wondering about my color key'd keyboard it's a custom mechanical keyboard from WASD keyboards.
Looked that the one's you mentioned, but I picked the Dell P2715Q. Very impressed with the resolution for my photos. My new Mac Pro supports 4K and Thunderbolt. Kept watching the price and waited for about 3 months and then pulled the trigger. Got a great price. Like your setup. Want to take my Mac Mini and get it set up to run via 12v and load multi-media (movies/music) onto it to take on trips.

See I really liked the higher resolutions offered by the 4K displays. But I get that with my retina display on the Macbook, and since coding only on the larger display, I opted for the better power consumption. The 4K's are wattage hogs.

But you made a good choice, that Dell is nice.

And we made a new place to hold the awning rod while camped. (But not when towing!):

For us, this is a little more convenient than storing in the bumper or other storage area.

Have you actually used that on the roof of your AS? The web site shows it sealing roof vents. It looks like it would do a really clean job of sealing, I just wonder how long it lasts.

You obviously like it, what have you tried it on?

Where do you buy it? Amazon doesn't stock it anymore

The original brake controller and 7-blade connector on the F350 appear to have been installed by a chimpanzee. Poorly spliced wires and open connections on the 7-blade connector were a cause for concern, and replacing them has been on my to-do list. Plus the old 1999 era AccuTrack controller is a bit dated technology wise.

Installed a new Tekonsha Prodigy P2 controller and 7-blade plug, utilized factory wiring harnesses from etrailer. Whole project took less than an hour.

Rich,

My delivery from Amazon just arrived three days ago


I used it to seal the curb on a new skylight from Inland RV in 2011, still in excellent condition, no sign of weathering at all.

I've also used it to seal wiring connections on our boat trailer,(constantly getting wet with every launch), much more reliable than anything else I've tried.
Seals the wiring on the trim sending unit, again constantly wet.
Just sealed the ABS wiring connectors on the DW's Buick.

Used it to replace a broken hinge on my plastic torque wrench case. Seems to stay flexible forever.

Not cheap.....but very handy.

Bob

Oh, forgot.....it worked very well to repair quite a few cracks on the AC shroud, applied from the inside the cracks have not expanded since 2011.

POI....the surfaces MUST be clean!!

Thanks, Bob. I searched for it on Amazon and they said they were out and didn't know if they would be getting any more. If you omit the 3M in the search it can be found. Thanks for the tip, added to the shopping basket. I'm always looking for good tapes.

Am I correct that the price is $3+/foot?

Picked up a TST 507 tire pressure monitoring g system. TST has great customer service and a good product. Now it's test time.
