Been tinkering today. Made a divider to fit under dinette seat where water pump is located. Installed and set up my Scan Gauge. Received my Eez TPMS system today and got it set up, had a small problem when I dropped one of the sensors behind the wheel simulator. Butter fingers!

I also received my new surge protector but will have to wait a while before getting time to install.

Wish I could figure out why photos are always turned 90 degrees, very annoying!

I really like my EZEE TPMS have it almost in same spot and GPS next to it I find scanning my eyes to left is very easy for me when I drive. Did the same thing with one of my sensors had to get in rig a move it forward slightly for it to fall out on to ground. Learn the hard way to only have that happen once LOL

It would have been difficult to move the coach so it was easier to just remove the simulator! Even though it was a PIA!

SuperD: Great place for the ScanGauge. My EEZTire TPMS is in the exact same location - very easy to monitor in this location.

As far as the TPMS is concerned, I think we all figured out the best place to put the monitor

Got my 5 Star Tuner today! Don't have time to install tonight, will probably install tomorrow after work. Like many other 6 speeds, mine is not downshifting correctly when in tow/haul mode. I thought about going to the Ford dealer to have the ECU updated but decided to go with 5 Star instead. I have read just about everything written about 5 Star and don't remember reading anything negative. Taking a trip this weekend so I'll get a chance to try it out. Will report back on how it drives after our trip.

I have the 5 Star installed now for about 40,000 miles, and would not want to be without it.

I ran with a 5-Star in my F-350 for a good 60,000 miles. Loved it.

It certainly upped the BSEG factor of the truck

Not rv related but i thought i would share this

My buddy has probably a $100000 worth of lighting equipment. He donates his time and the equipment to light plays or shows for local churches and schools. The next big show is Lion King at Calvery Chapel. The opening sceen at pride rock shows the sun rising. So i spent the day helping him make the sun. The sun is a 10 ft circle. Its attached to a roller pully system we made. The churches ceiling isnt high enough to pull it straight up so it wraps around the roller. Its still not done needs some finishing touches and we should be installing it at the church next monday. Not sure if the pic will do justice on how cool this will look. Just think of it once installed and the front and back are lite up with lights.

First pic, bottom of sun, shows all the material hung precut. Next 2 ,top of sun, shows the material after being cut. The cut will show the back light which will change as the sun starts rising. Dark to light to blue.

Looks like everyone is unanimous in their choice of mounting location for TPMS! Kinda weird that so many of us think alike! LOL

Well, I would be the exception... our TPMS is mounted by Velcro to the right of the steering wheel on the panel next to the vent.
