Today was Airstream Christmas at my house - I got a Garmin RV 760LMT and a pair of Midland GTX 1000s (so my wife can help me back our 28' International Serenity). I would like to say I am very pleased with both purchases. I also want to say that the charging base for the GTX 1000s was not working properly. I called Midland and they overnighted a replacement to me no questions asked. Superb customer service!

Picked up a Coleman Mach 3 Power Saver (13,500 BTU) on Saturday. Installed the drain kit and mounted the AC on the roof on Tuesday. I ran it on the Ryobi 2200 watt generator all day yesterday. It worked perfectly. A good bit of margin against the auto idle "off" position when running only the AC. Very little margin when the battery was initially charging. Added a third circuit to the trailer today, so we can limit loads as needed.

We appreciate all the experience and information we got from the forums.

The Morgans (not sure who is actually posting),
What WI-Fi antenna system did you get?

What did you get for your Trailer today?

I keep buying strings of colored LEDs for the belt line. They seem to last about 9 months or so. I'm thinking of a different system - but for now, I installed another string to replace the last one that blew out.

And this time, thanks to Brian/Moosetags - I attempted a connection to the battery (well, I haven't done it on the trailer yet...).

I got one of these:

And one of these:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00G8...3SM52D7EC356BN


Now I hadn't really thought of it until I got the parts and started playing around with it and I'd buy different parts perhaps because I ended up cutting the female end off both pieces. I soldered about 10' of cable with the male end to the pin adapter out of the light strip (that goes to a "brick" for 110v). Since that male end has a fuse in it already, I realized I didn't need a fuse for the female end coming off the battery, so I eliminated that fuse and soldered the female end I cut off the one cord on to the eyelet adapters for the battery connection. Oh - and I used a volt meter to triple check to be sure all 3 components I was working with interpreted "red" as "positive".

So the LED strip will terminate in a male cigarette lighter adapter that I can plug in to the female adapter permanently connected to the battery.

I tested it out at home by plugging the male adapter in to my truck's cigarette lighter and powered up yet another spare string of LEDs and it worked perfectly!

So thank you, Brian! Great tip and it worked perfectly!

A more respectable date for our next outing (a WBCCI rally - Utah's Wasatch Airstream Club)... the old boy (TV) got a new paint job up on top. No more embarrassing bald spots! Now, if we can just do something similar for the owner...

Regards - Ron
