When you locate your "self cleaning carpet", please send me all the info ... I gotta have one too.  Woot!

I like the things on your list.  This is what I would add to your list ... I would like 2 more receptacles installed.  One to the left of the entry steps on the side of the cabinet that holds the switches ... the receptacle on the front between the sink and stove is awkward to use at times when preparing meals.  The second to the right of the steps on the side of the small bottom cabinet that has the table that flips up.

David ... Gosh, no I didn't save any.  You can bet I will with my next batch.
I'm always game for simple fast appetizers.  We occasionally do an "appetizer night" and the only thing everyone brings is an appetizer.  We also do what we call a "grease pit night" when it's warm enough to be on the patio.  We have several deep fryers going and everything must be deep fried.  Any new recipes would be greatly appreciated.   ThankYou

We were talking about using a bike rack or cargo carrier fitted into the hitch on the rear of the MH.  The license plate then would not be able to be seen.  This is probably a stupid question but would this be an issue with law enforcement while traveling around the country??  I'm from New York State so we have to have plates on the front and rear of our vehicles.

 ThankYou
Your shrimp recipe was the big WINNER tonight.  Fortunately, I had picked up a couple pounds of shrimp.  We let them marinate overnight and put them on the grill for our cookout this evening.  I didn't put in the anaheim pepper though.  Everyone wanted a copy of your recipe to take home. 
Thanks they were a big hit and I'm sure we'll be eating them several times through out the summer.

I'm on my way to pick up some shrimp right now.  Sounds terrific!!!
We're having a party Friday night so my first batch will be tried out on our guests.

Could a strong magnet manipulated from the outside, move the screws to a easier location in the tank to flush them out ???

Fantastic .... I had asked if anyone in the forum had used these probes before.  At the time nobody had.  I was waiting to get input on how well they worked before I made the purchase.  An added plus is the company appears to have good customer service.
Thanks for the information.

We use the Coleman that Billy included the link for from Camping World. We shopped around and bought ours on sale at WalMart last year. It stores good and I have a piece of cardboard that I enclose inside on the grill rack to help reduce the rattling while driving down the road. We have grilled steaks, hamburgs, hot dogs and porkchops with no problem. I found a plastic pan w/6" sides that fits the greasey grill rack and also for numerous other things for easy soaking and washing.

Before I acquired cable TV at my home, I had a unit sitting next to the TV that would turn the roof antenna to different directions to watch some of the channels.
On my PC when we raise the TV antenna that was installed by the factory and turn the antenna booster on, there have always been numerous channels available.  Occasionally we need to run the auto scan.  However, we did have a problem with reception on the TV and cell phones in areas within the Allegany Mountains.  The only aggravation that I have is occasionally when using the remote for the TV over the rear bed; it will change the channels on the TV up front.  We still haven't found out how to stop that from happening.

Ron ... I think I might order the BatteyMinder that desulfates then.  It is suppose to help prolong the life of the batteries.  I would be using it inside the garage.  As always thanks for your expertise.

 Help  I'm thinking about buying a battery tender type unit for use on my house batteries two 12V/parallel.    I really don't know anything about these units.  While checking the internet one brand said it had something that would automatically desulfate the plates and I wasn't sure if that was true or just a gimmick  There was a large difference in prices and amps available.  Does anyone have a suggestion for what make / model that they might recommend for me to purchase?
43  Main Forum / Tips and Tricks / Lights for the rear of the MH and storage compartment on: February 06, 2011, 08:53:29 am
When it gets dark, I find it difficult to see while getting things out of the rear storage compartment without holding a flashlight and admittedly I always forget to bring the flashlight with me on my first trip to the rear.  On the inside of the storage door, using Velcro, I attached 2 lights.  My lights turn on and off by pushing the dome cover.  I have also seen them with an on and off switch and are now available in LED which is brighter so I will be changing to them in the near future.  The ideal option would be to have an exterior light on the rear of the MH which has been "wisely" suggested in this forum already.

Ron ... Thanks for the details of the shelving installation.  ThankYou

Ron I'm very impressed with your ideas and the workmanship of your "jobs".
I've been thinking about this ever since you posted it ... Driver's side cabinet Is this unit free standing or attached to the walls?
Passenger side cabinet How did you attach the shelf and also the plug strip to the wall?  My concern with screws ... how long can they be?  It makes me very nervous when I don't know what I'm dealing with in the walls. Gosh, I would hate to go through to the outside skin. Any tips you can provide me with would be great.
