A while back I posted pictures of stained glass inserts I made over the winter. I finally installed them today. We think they'll be nicer then the original pull shades as they'll let light in while helping to control cold, heat and privacy.

The nice thing about the remote-reading digital thermometer is that you can monitor the temps without opening the fridge... that can make the difference between marginally acceptable cooling and insufficient cooling in the Texas summer.

New Purchases

Hi folks! We're new here. Just joined. Acquired our 2010, FC20 just three weeks ago. At this point, we have replaced the interior halogen bulbs with LEDs, replaced the painful toilet with a new Dometic Low Profile, ordered new Sendal Eddie Baur rims with Michelin tires (UPS "forgot" to deliver one of our tires, however) and a boondocker power converter from Best Converters. Basically, at this point, we are hemorrhaging money from every pore, but we are looking forward to our shakedown trip---once we get the tags.

Oh it never ends... There's a reason for this thread - your FC20 becomes your spoiled child.... Only, it doesn't talk back!
Enjoy the journey.....

I saw some flamingo lights in the rv section of Walmart the other day. I'm sure their website will have them.

That's a German propane tank for some sort of stove... the company that builds the sensor is German.

It's about the size of a dry-erase marker pen, lightweight and simple. Works like a charm. Batteries are tiny - prob. good for a couple of hundred uses. It sure beats the hell out of knocking on the tanks with my knuckles.

I just purchased one of those Dyson Hot+Cold fans (model am05) refurbished from amazon for only $150! Normally these things are super expensive at around $350 and everybody raves about them.

This is supposed to be a one day deal, so if anyone is interested in one follow this link.

GreggH,

The stained glass looks great! How did you secure the stained glass inserts?

Thanks for the link! I've always wanted one or a fan but way too much $$$$ but 150 is perfect! I've been cleaning out the basement and selling on eBay so now I know what to do with the $$ burning a hole in my pocket!
