I have the snaps in the front so I just use one of the several beer can koozies that I have to provide a cushion between the buckle and the screen. The TV didn't move at all last trip. Granted we don't use the TV that much either and while driving we might go 2-3 days before we turn it on. The straps fit nicely behind the TV when we want to use it.

We think alike. Thanks for that, I'll get a couple. I was just thinking about I-20 in Columbia.

I mounted a 27" flat panel on a double swing arm. Bracket had maximum vertical adjustment of 13 degree down, needed 15 degree. Mounted arm on 2"x4" post 2 degrees out of plumb, used 3" strips of 3M Command dual lock strips on arm to hold flat panel in line with overhead cabinet face, worked fine. If I had mounted arm 15 degrees out of plumb doubt if it would have been secure, last thing you need is arm swinging flat panel into someones head (when travelling/ turning).

Dean
I got lucky and braced a board behind the old TV hole to then bolt the new stand/mount to, so it is at the same angle as the cabinet face. I am not a finish carpenter! I am taking Bruce's advice on the two big straps for traveling.

Brought it home from Tims after all the updates and mods. Super happy with it. I decided to give it its annual hand waxing. One side done one to go!

Replaced the relay in the back bedroom closet. It was loud.
Not much room to work and do not drop the screws. Hard to reach when
they roll under the water heater.
The relay was falling apart in my hand.
It is nice and quite now.

I know what you mean Al. I had to swap out two relays back there and the old ones crumbled like yours did when I removed them. I guess the heat and working for 20+ years will do that to plastic.

Now to figure out relay 21 in the front main panel. It is clicking and makes the check trans light blink in time. I'm guessing the new oil pressure sender that powers the ATEC is either wrong, clogged or something. If I blip the gas the blinking light and relay stop, so probably the sender is going back and forth turning it on and off or something. I'll pull out the schematics in a min and try to trace 21 down to see where it goes.

Removed the 10+ year old batteries.
Rehabbed the battery trays by removing them, wire brushing to remove rust, sprayed them with rust inhibiting primer, repainted them and put them back in place.
Installed 4 new Lifelines
Removed the passenger seat, side table and support plate to install new stepwell cover glides
Just went out to check the mail for delivery of parts and saw a snake sticking it's head out of the radiator vent so next I'll be installing glue traps!!
