Outdoor shower mixer and spray handle

Looks like I'm drilling more holes in my AS. But I'll be enjoying outdoor showers!

Was this a special at the store? On-line lists sale price as $125. I like your price better! Worth the drive for your price.

Better to start with all the bulbs that drain the battery when not towing, the LED's won't do much to "save" an alternator.

I replaced all the interior bulbs that get used a lot and the porch and step light, helped extend battery use a lot.
All other exterior lights are still incandescent.

We had had our last trip in November 2012.

Since then, we purchased the following :
(Items that we would not have purchased (but for) the Airstream.)

1) Citizen Folding Bicycle. (Christmas gift to my wife, she had never received a bicycle for Christmas, She was excited.)

2)Cobb Pro Grill (I normally I like to cook meats over the campfire, but campfires are too hot in the summer time. I've used it once and it seems to work well.)

3)2-Engel 30 Quart coolers/dry box

4)Oxygenics shower head (works great)

5)Deadbolt Hitch Lock

6) LED replacement lights (only replaced those that were not working)

7) Corrosion X

8)TriMark key blanks

I will be purchasing a brass water pressure regulator. The RV campground we are staying at tonight and tomorrow night requires a brass regulator. I asked the lady about a regulator with a gauge. She seemed to think the gauge wasn't necessary because if the regulator is preset to 40 PSI then it will only let 40 PSI of water pass through. The owner says the plastic ones are no good. The plastic one i have is from a "starter kit" that came with our previous SOB trailer. Is it a liability issue? They don't want to pay for broken pipes?

We bought one of those mud flap/stone guard things that mounts on the ball mount. The one that looks like a plastic hula skirt.

Camcorder Rv brass 40-50# water pressure regulator and Meguiar's Instant Detailer- got half the trailer wiped down, will wipe down the other side today or tomorrow. In doing so I noticed that the end caps are a different color/brightness. May need to be because of machining/manufacture process- i.e. multiple curves as opposed to flat.

I just picked up 10 boxes from my PO Box! Included where:

LED replacement bulbs for all interior lights
Oxygenics shower head
Ultra breeze vent covers
Reversing switches for the fantastic fans
12v laptop charging cable
Stainless steel range vent
Plus a few other odds and ends.

Next few days will be busy installing all this stuff.
