Pete Haggins replaced my tag bags and tag air regulator this week. In addition he built and installed a third fold down shelf for one of the two end tables. Im now ready to head south for the winter. Thank you again Pete for everything.

Cleaning out the garage and discovered an old box that had moved all over the world with me from before I joined the Army. Opened it up and found old race car parts (I guess I thought I would need them). And in there I found that I had all the parts to build a Springer Fan, so I did. Works great.

My next trick will be my $30 ARP "like" system consisting of a relay and a 200' C snap disc.

Hooked the Automatic Generator Starter up to a spare household thermostat that I had in another box. It works too. I was kinda bummed when I couldn't connect my AGS to the Dometic thermostats due to electronic controls on the AC units. But this is even better as it is a programmable thermostat. So I can have different temp triggers if I wanted.

I also found a electronics thermostat that I'm going to put to use in the storage area behind the front TV. It always seems to get a little hot up there with the electronics (that is where I keep my router, cell booster, and will install a media server soon). Think I'll cut some openings in the trim wood above the TV and put some muffin fans in there to exhaust the hot air. The area pulls air in from just above the windshield already.

On the bus, nothing. However...
I installed a Blue Ox baseplate in my 2003 Pilot. 9 hours of fun and games. It looks good; you can barely tell that it's even there with the tow pins removed.
The bumper support had to lose about 1/4 inch x 1 inch piece of steel on each end to fit between the rearward extensions of the tow plate. Honda also saw fit to put about a 1/8 inch bend on the rear facing lips that interfaced with the main frame of the car to ease assembly; these turned out to interfere with the reassembly with the baseplate partially installed (has to be done in this order; three bolts on each side go into a void space that's only accessible with the bumper support removed).
It's amazing how many ways one can find to assemble a grinder incorrectly...
With the lip removed on each side, it slid right into place and bolted up.
Casualties for the day: one broken drill bit, one damaged drill bit, one broken foglight lens.
Yet to come: installing the wiring for the brake lamps and the breakaway emergency mechanism.

Cranked her up to check voltage and she ate the belt in less than a minute.
Looking for another belt and the problem that caused it's demise, there was an unusual squealing nose just before it turned into spaghetti
Murphy you little pr/:k

Ordered two gas springs from McMaster Carr yesterday afternoon and recieved them before lunch today. I replaced the ones on my pass through bay door on my 83 PT40. They worked great. Part number was 4138T56 90 lb extension force. Total price $41.18 for the pair

Finished the installation of the Victron 700 battery monitor with the optional dongle to talk to a he Ipad or IPhone. It's a lot easier to see the IPad than the gauge so I think the dongle is a must.
Also learned how to put an end on an Ethernet cable. I've gone almost 70 years and never before needed the crimper to make an Ethernet or phone cable connection and now that I bought the crimper I hope to go another 70 years before I use it again. In pulling/fishing the wire up the port side of the bus the path the fish wire chose would not allow the extra dimension of the plastic plug to pass. It was hard enough to get the phone cable (pulled by mistake thinking it would carry the data) and the Ethernet cable taped together past the choke point.
