It's surely iconic. My wife's grandmother welded in the shipyards of Portland during WWII. I remember her enthusiasm as she told that story.

A minuet to get it out and another minuet to put it back. If it works ok now that proves that the old one was fugued.

Smile Generator

I bought a Honda 2000 generator at Camping World. I was impressed with my sales person. I had a coupon for $20 off and he gave me $50 dollars off the discounted price, plus renewed my good SAMs ($25) for free and threw in the oil! I bought it to use at a Airstream Jazz Ralley in Sunvalley Idaho in October. ( my first airstream Ralley) I plan to add the 2000 companion for air conditioner next summer. $1000 at a time!

Easy to do and looks great! I removed old fan by just drilling out the old solid rivets used a center punch first just drilled enough to remove the head. Pulled old fan assy out cut wires were only two, then lay out the new fan cutout template on the roof mark it with a pencil after that used nematic shears to cut the opening out cause its slightly larger than the old fan. Lastly connect the fan + & - wires lay a beed of caulk down install fan assy.

My vents don't have wiring, so how would I get a fan to work?

Tire Pressure valve stem caps

Bought a set of these to let me know if I drop below 50lbs.

What are they? Don't understand. Is it some kind of scale?

I could be wrong, but, they look like TPS valve stems for your tires. They indicate "red" if your tire pressure drops below the predetermined psi. I don't believe that they are adjustable, you purchase the ones based on your tire pressure specs.

If there is a light nearby.....

Mine are wired to the light fixture. In both the living area and the bedroom there is a switch to turn on the light. The fan is wired to the light. It is suboptimum, particularly at the entry door, since I like to leave the switch on the light on and turn it on and off when entering and leaving with the switch by the door, but it works.

A recent thought I had is to "appropriate" the solar pre-wire for the LR fan. I should be able to hook the yellow to red and the green to black behind the status panel in the galley and hook the red and black to the battery (properly fused) and then there would be 12 volts near the LR light fixture to hook the fan to. The solar panel wiring is too small for the solar system I want to install, anyway.

Added a new tool to my travel kit today. 14 inch 2-stroke chain saw. Makes getting firewood cake and should come in handy if I ever need to clear a downed tree when boondocking. So long as it's not to big.

When we were camping in a previous National Forest area a tree came down across the road and would of left us stuck if the road didn't go out in two places.

Look what I got...er, made

Hi all....
I just got, or made, a solid Cherry sink Cutting Board for the 16in round sink in our new 25' FC. I designed it to fit 3/4 of the surface so we can still use the faucet and sink while cutting. The Cherry will last a long time as it is sealed with walnut oil. There is a 1" lip around the edge to lock the board to the sink. What do you think?
If you want one, PM me to order. I have also made them for rectangular sinks.

Very nice sink cover/chopping block. I guess I will make one for myself....as I do all the stuff because I have no job...LOL


But, your design and execution are top drawer. Thanks

Correct. If you go 10% your set pressure you get half green / half red. Full red is more than 10%. Not adjustable. I bought 50 psi.
