I disagree that they are doing it for advertising - they are doing it to meet CAFE standards. Fully agree with the personal daily driver reason....

Received Mopeka LPG Tank Check today. Easy install after replacing one of the batteries. As far as I can tell it is reading accurately. Set up both IPhone and IPad to read levels.
Also received the Ultimate Scout Kelly Kettle Kit. Getting this primarily for tent camping not trailer use. Tested it out with twigs picked up around the yard. Amazing how fast it boils water. It came with a hobo grill, pot and cover (fry pan) and couple of cups and plates. It all fits compactly in a well made bag. I ordered it direct from Ireland. Took advantage of a sale and free shipping. Came out about 25% cheaper than buying from KellyKettle USA.

We store it beneath the lounge in a drawstring bag.
Great idea! I will be getting one soon. But I will find it someplace else as I quit buying anything from Target when they chased the Salvation Army Bell Ringers away. I see WalMart has them and sure to find several other places as well.

Brilliant! My state does not allow customized tags on travel trailers.

(1) Micro-Air EasyStart 364, installed by my dealer. Seems to work very well.
(2) New Furrion Stainless Steel 30-amp power inlets. They look sweet.
(3) New switch for bathroom fan because the old one was sticking.
(4) New propane parts for Dometic fridge. The whole assembly was out of alignment and therefore heating up places that should *not* be heated up. The repair was expensive, but not finding/fixing this could have been far more costly. Thank goodness we had the dealer do a full check of Rocinante while she was there for the EasyStart installation.

Purchased from Vintage Trailer Supply new window knobs. The Silver Mistress likes her bling. These knobs have set screws. Decided to switch after I lost one of the plastic ones without set screws.

Shun Kanso 5.5 inch hollow ground santoku. Impeccable balance, good for use in a tight space. I'm a happy cook.

ID:	284293 Globettotter. Not very original but with vintage trailers one is often asked what year and model it is.

Kelvin,
The original handles on my windows seem to pull off easily. Looks like the ones with the set screw would be the answer to solve that problem, plus dress up the window at the same time. I went to the VTS site and could not locate the item you mentioned. Could you provide a link to the product or a part number?
Thanks!

I think the plastic knobs can take a set screw, they are missing. Try take one down to the hardware store and try to find a screw to fit.

But the chrome ones from Vintage Trailer Supply just look cool in the trailer. I put them in a couple of months ago. Adds a classy touch.
