Camping World sale items including free shipping

At the sale prices, it seemed like a good idea to go ahead and order these items.
  • Box of 2 Fan-tastic Vent Fan Pop 'n Lock Screens
  • Insulating vent cushions, 3 each. I inserted these into the vent openings with a 14" square of aluminum bubble insulation up against the vent opening. With local temps hitting 95 to 101 degrees, hope these help keep the trailer cooler.
  • Multicolored awning rope light, 18'
  • Awning rope light hooks, 10 in a pack
  • Awning arm clips to hold the extension cord for the awning rope light
  • Awning hanger clips, enables hanging a flag or other decorative items from the awning. 2 packs of 8 each.
  • Universal tongue jack cover, black, with drawstring. 2 covers, 1 for each trailer.
  • Spare tire covers, 1 for the trailer tire & one for the motor coach tire. Sun and heat have ruined the ones in use for several years.
All of the above came to $127.93 & totaled $133.08 with tax.

To date, I've the cushions, the tire covers, and the jack covers in use. Likely will use the awning rope light and the awning clips for the upcoming holiday camping weekend.

Let's Roll !

Man! Talk about closely monitoring everything on the road! That's almost a little overdoing it, don't you think?

Oh -wait. That's an "R." for a second there, I thought it was an "N."

Never mind.

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.

Nah... Big screen for the backup camera system let's me monitor the hitch and the camera on the rear of the TT simultaneously via the split screen mode.

The GPS is normally mounted to the windshield. Don't want to clutter the cab.

Four new tires.

Hi, today I had my four new tires installed. Goodbye Marathons and welcome Carlisle. My trailer was made ten years ago with Goodyear Marathons that were made in Canada. At three years, two of them had a sidewall bubble, so I replaced them with Goodyear Marathons made in China. At seven years the other two original Canadian Marathons showed signs of separation. The first one was replaced with another Chinese Marathon and the second one was replaced with a Carlisle. So today the one three year old Carlisle was installed on my spare wheel which still had an original, ten year old, never used Canadian Marathon. And one three year old Chinese Marathon and two seven year old Chinese Marathons were removed. So for the first time in ten years, I actually bought a set of four brand new tires for my trailer.

Why did I choose Carlisle "ST" trailer tires? Well they have a better guarantee than Goodyear and an "M" speed rating, which means they are good for 81 MPH. Now, if and when, I push 70 or 75 MPH while passing I won't worry so much about the 65 MPH max on all of the other "ST" tires.

Picked up a pair of the new Airstream rubber bumper edge guards here in Farmington at the WBCCI International Rally.

I needed one of these for dumping the tanks at our new home. We can't park a 31 foot trailer close enough to a sewer cleanout for a direct dump. I tried it for the first time today. This tank is leaps and bounds above the old blue one we used to have.

Screen Door Inserts and Sink Cutting board modification

I picked up some 1/4" Plexiglass and cut to fit the outside of the screen door openings. A few plastic screen window clips from ACE Hardware, and now we can keep the door open for a view on colder or windy days, and see the view out that side of the AS.

I also cut hole in the AS Sink cover, giving us more counter space and still able to use the sink.

Sink cover mod and screen door inserts....

You have made my day.....the cover mod also allows moisture to evaporate from the sink. How super...will do this when I return home. Thanks.

The inserts are on my long "to do" list already and do add so much to the light entering.

Thanks much.
