I was looking for ways to solve the problem of the gap between the blinds and the wall of the two windows in the dining area of our 20' Flying Cloud. Discovered some moss green tea towels at Bed, Bath, and Beyond that were exactly the right length for curtains. Then, I found placemats and napkins in the EXACT shades and pattern of the back cushions. Of course, I bought them! Will cut two napkins to use as borders on the curtains and keep two to go with the two place mats. Napkin rings for tie-backs.

New Stuff : Camp Kitchen

It's the little things to look forward to! New collapsible colander, retro measuring cups, and unbreakable wine glasses that look amazingly like crystal! My kids knew what to get me for my trailer.

We got new alco axles from Colin Hyde restorations for our dual axle 69 overlander land yacht 27'. What a difference ~3" makes! No scraping going out of the parking lot (no boards across dip), no creaking around corners and stable smooth ride. We went from
11" clearance at the bumper to 13.5" and 3" at the wheels, fender is now above the rim. This will definitely help at the many campsites where the dump hole is above the actual site ! Black water doesn't travel up hill very well (unless you have a sewer solution). Had the axles shipped to our auto mechanic, simple plug and play instillation (only had to change one shock bolt on trailer due to age). Total of 4 hour install. Photos don't do it justice! Now I need to get the optional second step welded up so we can get in the trailer easier.

Went to war with State Farm over the value of my '69 TradeWind since some idiot changed my policy from the agreed value and they now want to total it over a broken window and a water damaged package shelf.

A Little Something

Installed the Winegard SensarPro to make dialing in the antenna easier. Seems to work well here at at the house, but we'll see on the next outing in about 10 days.
Sorry for the 90 degree off-set. Any idea how to turn this to portrait view?

Bought a small dehumidifier for our 30' Excella. Now I don't have to keep the A/C running just to keep the humidity down during the summer months in the south.
Keeps humidity at a low 45 to 55%. It's only about 14 inches high and weighs less than 10 pounds.
Found it on Amazon for $75.00. I just let it drain into the kitchen sink, and leave the grey water drain open. Works great.
Old age is coming at a really bad time!

We had our AS dealer add a battery temperature sensor to the 150 watt Zamp Solar system they installed when we bought the trailer. Yeah, I now understand it's a PWM controller. However, with the temp sensor installed and the dip-switches properly configured for our batteries vs. the default settings they left it at the first time, our system should be quite a bit more efficient at charging up and maintaining the batteries.

With the temp sensor, we also have a shot at knowing if/when our stock converter tries to boil the batteries up for dinner. We normally switch to "Store" mode when we're on shore power, which allows the solar panel to safely recharge the batteries while we enjoy the 120V input, but it's good to have easy access to a bit more info on what's up in the battery compartment.

The part certainly qualified for an under $100 mod. The labor on the other hand, sheesh! That's the price of not being a DIY guy and wanting it professionally installed instead of hacked in by yours truly with a drill, a hammer, busted knuckles and lots of swearing.

Ordered three inexpensive automotive circuit breakers (two 30 amp and one 20 amp) to rewire the +12Vdc and -12Vdc wires going from the seven wire trailer receptacle on the back of the truck directly to the truck battery. We will use the same marine grade two #10 wire cable that was used on for each solar panel on the roof and a 30 amp breaker.

The other two breakers give me a choice for the amp capacity to the DirecLink NE brake controller as it has a #14 blue wire going to the seven pin plug at the back of the truck.

Shipping and handling charges were more than three times the total cost of the three breakers...
