An old friend in South Florida originally loaded a 3TB drive for me. Then, the third son bought the 4TB drive for me loaded with all of his movies. I dumped the original 3 TBA drive data to the new drive and I still have another terabyte of capacity left on the 4TB drive.

Sometimes, it's amazing how a little device that props a cabinet door open can be sure a luxury.

We're should change your user name to Hollywood Moosetags! Maybe you could be Air Forums movie critic and make recommendations to us old fogies since 9 out of 10 movies I pick aren't worth a plug nickel. That's an incredible library of entertainment you have at your fingertips. Maybe you can set up New Lucy with some additional seating and invite us all over for a movie and popcorn!

Drobo makes a small portable four 2.5" drive enclosure that can hold close to 4TB as a raid over Thunderbolt in the mac arena. Or, with today's equipment, around 2 TB of four solid state drives that are extremely vibration and drop resistent..

Hi David,

I am also one of the old fogies. As for movies, I am also disappointed by most that I have seen in recent years. It may have something to do with my attention span is down to about an hour. I am much better with TV episodes.

On the 4TB drive, we mostly watch old Star Trek television episodes. We have the complete library for the Original, TNG, DS9, Voyager, and Enterprise. What more could one ask for. Life is good. At my age, by the time I watch them all, I'm ready to start over without ever having seen them before.

Brian

In the early 70s the first generation personal computers (which you had to build yourself) had to use cassette tapes for data storage. Later, my original Apple II needed a cassette drive for data storage. Then I got a 5 1/4" drive, which was then a big deal.

I was thinking if I could have a drive with videos and movies, I'd love to have ALL the various Star Trek shows. Man am I envious! I do have all the movies on DVDs though. But the majority of my episode collection was on VHS tapes.

I wish that I was a youngster. I worked with cassette data which was state of the art compared to IBM key punch cards. Now I have a 64 GB micro SD card in my smart phone that has more data storage and computing capacity that the Apollo 11 Lunar Landing Module. These are wonderful times that we live in.

I got Lucy's new television mount this morning and have installed it. It seems to work very well and gives me access to the back of the television. I also like being able to turn the television slightly toward the door. The television now sits about 2" further out from the wall, but that does not present a problem.

Here are a few pictures of the installation.

Brian- I see in your photos that you have a multi-plug adapter in your 120v outlet.

On my unit the living room TV 120v outlet is a double and the inverter outlet is a single. In the bedroom, the 120v is single and the inverter is a double.

I thought that the 120v outlets would be doubles and the inverters single- that seemed to make some sense. But looking your photos, maybe it's just whichever receptacle they happen to grab when installing.

Ours came factory with a similar extending tv arm, I wonder why they stopped that. Rough roadways will challenge its lock and we've had it pop loose a couple times and swing out from the wall (maybe that's why they stopped it). So I back it up by hooking a good bungee around the whole thing.

A lot of the electrical parts in our trailer were as inexpensive as possible and would not meet NEC specs for a house. They are designed for non-electricians to install quickly on the assembly line.

We converted all outlets to Hubbell brand GFI outlets rated 20 amps since the Romex electric cable was #12 wire. We installed a switched outlet for each of the televisions so power could be turned off for the instant on feature when on batteries.

Our solar power conversion has all outlets powered by the batteries when not on shore power.

The mounting plate with the wood spacer Brian installed looks like what the factory put behind the dinette television in our Classic.

That wooden spacer was there for the factory set-up. I did not install that. I just used it to attach my bracket.
