I upgraded both of my fantastic vent fans to have a variable speed control and a reversing switch so the fans can suck air in and out. Then variable speed control is awesome, as the fan speed is now infinitely controllable. I stole the idea from a few folks that have posted, and give them credit in my summary that can be found here:

I also added new FF fans when I had the roof coated with Bus Kote. The fans have the variable speed and reverse but not the rain sensors. I have the covers so I can leave open in rain and transport.

Thanks much. It was a labor of love. The sink is by Kohler. Similar style as the Kohler one used in the new 33í Classic bathroom. I used a vendor connection to acquire the sink. However itís widely available online. Be aware of shipping options. Best to opt for it to be shipped on a pallet for safer delivery.

Good luck!

rfequity.....that table is absolutely gorgeous. I bet there will be a lot of owners of the Pendleton or Tommy Bahama editions that would love to know if you made it or purchased somewhere. Really great looking table. Congratulations!

Yes, the table came out real nice. One of the things I love is how you can feel the relief of the design. It feels a little carved.

Rebel water pump

After a few freshwater tank overfills when connected to city water (with proper regulator), the NEW Shurflo pump came out and the new Remco Rebel went in. Amazing performance and quiet.

Installed a Victron BMV 712 battery monitor with blutooth and bought a Renogy 100w suitcase solar.
We are 12v thrifty dry campers and after testing yesterday this is going to be just what we need.

Technically this is not specific to my TT , however since purchasing it Iíve been itching to take my Greenspeed Trike with me. While the roads are calling out to explore, the hills are mocking any effort I might have of climbing them with my wide chops and hearty bike. So my gift to self was to have it electrified this past week. Holy succotash this thing moves out and has put the grin back into both cheeks! If you have a bike or variant and find that youíre not enjoying it as much as you once did, maybe think about adding some kick power to it and adding electric.

On the last trip out I noticed the brakes weren't doing a very good job on stopping so it was time for an inspection and wheel bearing grease/seal job.

I discovered the armature facing on all the drums were deeply gouged and beyond resurfacing. The magnets were also toasted with deep gouges.
Time for new brakes and drums - ouch!!

New self adjusting (4) brakes. I am curious how these will do as I have always used manual adjusting brakes I in the past.

New (4) drums. I took out the crummy Chinese bearing races and swapped over the Timken bearing races from the old drums.

Now for the not so fun part - I need to take this thing for a tow and get the brakes shoes burnished in.
