Moose tags are handy for identifying wires.

Run meter for Generator

Funny, was recently heading to buy your Yamaha 2400 just before going the Costco Champion duel fuel route. (Really like it!)

The run meter is a simple low cost external device and must have an internal lithium coin battery lasting years. Yes on the induction wire. They supply @ 2.5ft wire to wrap one end around spark plug lead and tie wrap it in place. Other simply tucks into the back of meter to read the spark. The creativity is finding / making a small enough hole to get the wire through to the best mounting location. Most of run meters are water resistant. Hour glass icon flashes when gen runs and counts up in 1/10 Hr increments. Pretty slick !

It's a small thing, but I scored a travel iron at a yard sale for a buck!

Streamingair...Love a great yard sale buy!

We purchased a laser cut metal design for our screen door at a local festival a few months ago and mounted it yesterday. More details posted at,

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f394...er-155180.html

I hope the link works. It's my first try at including links.

We also added an aluminum sheet to the door for travel stickers. I'm searching for some trim to finish it off.

Oh well, back to the drawing board on the link thing...

It was supposed to direct to "The shiny Reveal - 1968 Overlander."
