Thanks for the information. I ordered the 3/4 x 1/2 meter.

I got a "kill-a-watt" meter today from Amazon.com. This is a tool that probably every rv camper should have. All you do is plug it in and it tells you the campground voltage and frequency. After it is plugged into an outlet, you can plug an appliance in and it will tell you the current draw (amps), power consumption (watts) and energy consumption (kw-hrs so that you can determine the cost of operation. It was less than $18.

The main reason I got it was to determine the current draw and power consumption of my refrigerator. Lots of other uses though. Basically any appliance that you want to find out how much power it is using just plug it into the kill-a-watt meter.

I got a piece cut for every window. It feels like an Apollo spacecraft in here.

The kill-a-wat electricity usage meter will also serve to inform the operator how long the inverter (if installed) can run the various "necessary" items, like phone chargers, laptop, television, coffee maker, small microwave, etc.

WHY would you (anyone actually) need a drill to operate the stabilizers? It's just not that hard.

I take it you don't have arthritis...

My gift for the trailer today is going to be a couple of new batteries. I'm thinking of going with group 27s. The old ones are 'ok', but have been drained a couple of times before I put solar on top. I'm going to use them for the electric trolling motor on the skiff.

Why would you not use a tool you already have? The DeWalt is part of my tool kit anyway, might as well make use of it. I purchased and installed my stabilizers myself, the $1.99 adapter to drive the socket I already have was cheaper than the $19.99 handle for the stabilizers anyway.
