Was there a DC power source at the TV bracket for you use?

Just a small inverter will save you $$$ on a TV, 12V to 110.

I just can't stop buying something for the trailer!

now a dehumidifier for storage!

Two days ago I purchased a dehumidifier for storage. Now I am trying to figure out how to set it for best scenario storage. When I first started up the dehumidifier the interior Temp was 92 degrees F with 81% RH. Now today it is Temp 106 degrees with a 40% RH. The extra heat is the dehumidifier exhausting the hot dry air into the coach. Have I improved the storage situation or made it worse with a 14 degree hotter interior? It is in the shade parked in a roofed facility.

I like having a table for my drink and cell phone. In my previous Safari I built a flip-up table much like the countertop extension and screwed it into the wall below the window. This time I decided to make a friction/gravity based shelf that can be moved. The blinds casing in my Classic inspired my design as they protrude out a few inches. I notched the surface underside to hook over the cord of the blinds cover without interfering with the blind. This is more than sturdy for my morning coffee or evening bourbons.

I would think the humidity would be worse than the heat. Keep the air moving maybe with a small fan as well as the dehumidifier. I run my ac at least twice a week here in n fl. Only way to keep it fresh inside. Seems to dry it out a lot. Good luck.

I'd just use a few damprid buckets. We are humid here in Kansas but the humidifier produces too much heat. You could run the dehumidifier for a day then just use the damprid.

New wheels, six bolt 15 inch. Powdered coated black thanks to ventage trailer supply. They look great...finally got rid of the original split rims. I'll miss the original rims but my mind will be more at ease with the solid rims...and some new shoes too! Happy day!

Safe travels to ya'

Hi, OMG; you still had split rims. How did you find tires for them and someone to change them?

What did you get for your Trailer today?

Only changed the tires once, Changed them myself with some serious leather straps. Scary ☠ No one would do it around here(with good reason)😁 But getting ready to hit the road on a big trip, had to go.

A few spare lug nuts. Lost one returning from my recent trip to West Virginia. Found a local business that rents tire and wheel packages. $1 a piece for McGard solid lug nuts. They buy them in bulk. Lesson learned: check lug nut torque often, not just at the start of a trip.
