I got 2 New back up lights and a new lens for the porch light for the 66 that we'll be picking up tomorrow...I really need a list of everything we need to take with us..it had been stored it's whole life (never seen the road) until 6yrs ago when the now 91 yr old PO, took it to a small retirement park in Florida and lived in it. Does anyone know what size tires it may need? They looked great but would feel more comfortable with a spare and we didn't look at the size while we were there...66 Landyacht Overlander International.

Yeah I have no idea what you are describing here.

We've got the same grill as yours, I found it a lot more simple to buy the adapter hose and connect it to a 20# LP tank that we carry in the truck. I've never trusted these other things.
A lot of people use them, but they appear to be just another source of leaks in the trailer LP system...
For whatever it's worth.

Finally got the battery box rebuilt and new Trojan 6 volts installed. It was a frustrating exercise in one nick picking problem after another. Click image for larger version

Mostly blew up...but Wylie was a moron!

I used that brand and vendor only as a pictorial. I think mine is a Camco...but probably made by Acme anyway. Shop around for best price...I don't remember paying that much.

We just received some cool hand-painted glasses for Rocinante's 2-person crewe.

Coffee mugs for the morning, stemless wine glasses for whenever it's 5:00 somewhere.













Leslie Hand Painted Glass ~ Retail - We've seen their work in some retail locations in OR, such as Made in Oregon stores and at craft festivals like Salmon Days, in Issaquah, WA. They also take custom orders, which is how we got ours.

Mine is also Camco picked up at Camping World on sale a couple of years ago. Identical to the one shown. I use with 10 ft of hose.

Got a new valve stem for the Moen shower fixture. The old one was tuff to get out. The Queen said she was tired of taking cold showers and was not going camping again until I fixed it.
