I bought a new LED LG TV which runs on 9 volts. Question can I get rid of the power supply which converts from AC down to 9V DC and run it on 12 volt DC?

I would think they are similar to MaxxAir vent covers.

They are the covers that go over the vents that allow you to keep the vents operating even during rain. Very convenient. I also leave my vents open when towing to keep the AS cool. The vent covers from fantastic fan seem to be the most efficient at least by looking at the comparison made in this video. http://youtu.be/p1fhkbl_1yQ

does anyone have or recommend an anwing shade sidewall that's attachable the flap on the end of zip-dee that they could recommend? There is no slide rail to insert one, but I sure would love to find one that's ready make to mount to an airstream.

On our last trip I just used some clips to hold up a lightweight nylon tarp to block a rather cold wind. I was thinking about getting something more permanent. I just now found these at Camping World:

New door gasket, new screen door foam seal, new screen in the door. Door now closes with that distinct Airstream thump instead of a hollow clunk followed by a harsh rattle from the screen door flopping.Click image for larger version

I'm surprised your 2013 does not have this. Is your shower head a hand-held model?

Also, my outside shower handle has a cut-off on it.
Nope mine looks like a house shower head. It is a huge 6" diameter shower head with variable output but no lather switch. I was also annoyed that the shower head was so big and heavy it always falls down when towing. This one is smaller and lighter but still wrap it in a towel and lay it on the shower floor out of habit.

No need to be! It's an easy install and I think I spent less than $40. Best repair I've made on my AS yet! The main door seal is the most difficult, but only because you have to glue it in place with automotive trim adhesive. Nasty stuff. Wear gloves!

Did you get a reply back on the size of the boxes? I'd like to get one for my Honda generator. Thanks
