Since we decided to upgrade our RV backup camera from a Furrion to a TadiBrothers system, I had to find out how to mount both the camera as well as the monitor. The whole project sounded much more difficult than it proved to actually be once I figured it out. Let me show you how it can be done. Let’s start with the camera. TadiBrothers makes an adapter plate but I found that I really did not need it. The Furrion mount is secured to the trailer by 4 screws. Begin …

Time to upgrade our mattress in the RV again. Our 1st mattress upgrade was from the original manufacter installed RV mattress to a new Serta mattress.

I had done some research in advance to help us decide which way to go. Should we get a residential refrigerator or go with the common 2-way/3-way RV type refrigerator?

OK, well they …

On Go-Home day, I went to the rear of the trailer to raise the jacks only to find them broken. I quickly got out a volt meter and checked the lines. I found there was power going to the motor from the switch yet the motor did not energize. I then got some tools out and removed the motor from the frame of the jacks. As I tilted the motor, water quickly ran out of the housing. The motor had a plastic cover on it but it was not sealed …
