Hello, and welcome to the July Newsletter. Happy Summertime.

What's New With Us

July has been a busy month of installs and upgrades for me. The ol'Cougar trailer is getting a spiff up thanks to the folks at Lippert Components (LCI). As I told you in a previous newsletter, I've become what they refer to as a Lippert Brand Ambassador.

They sent out a pile of RV products for me to install and review for you this summer. Don't worry, though; you'll still get my honest opinion on the products and follow-ups on how they perform. This month I was able to get the LCI Screen Room, Solid Steps, and Flow Max Faucet installed and a follow-up for the BetterWeigh Mobile Tow Scale.  Stay tuned as there is more to come.
Beyond the LCI stuff, I did videos on three other items I picked up myself. Anne's 14-year-old boat Snoopy needed a good polish, so I demoed and reviewed the Meguiar's Dual Action polisher that attaches to a power drill. Then I installed an aftermarket power lumbar into our Ram trucks passenger seat. Earned big brownie points with those two. :)
And just a few days ago, I upgraded the old OEM RV plastic kitchen sink to a larger new stainless steel one. I still have a few issues to iron out, but so far as chief cook and bottle washer, I love it!
Whew! Quite a bit of work, eh? But don't worry, I did manage to get out for a bit of recreation between all that. One notable adventure was a sunny afternoon visit to a local ocean reef at low tide. So many starfish and urchins! I hope you enjoy the video footage from that day, a small slice of why we love summers on Vancouver Island.

Ray's Pick - Helpful RVing Website/App


I had never shopped here before, but recently when looking for a new sink for the RV kitchen, I found one. While looking over the website, I saw quite a few things for RVs. Stuff like storage covers, RV sized mattresses and sheets, etc. kitchen and decor items. Shipping for the sink was free and showed up within a week via UPS.

RVing Tip of the Month


Charger Mounting Hack

Thanks to Greg F from the LYRV forum for this tip

"I saw a video a while back where someone did this hack. Can't remember where but I thought it was pretty clever.

The rubber feet on the bottom of the charger get a small hole drilled in each. Running a screw into them acts as an expansion anchor holding the charger securely to a plate that can then be mounted to a wall. A little critical layout is required to get the plate holes in the right location.

I had some diamond plate aluminum in my scrap pile and cut and painted a piece to fit. I mounted it in the storage bay along a wall with other electrical items just under an outlet.

Hope this might benefit someone else!"
