What Did Colonial Airstream Do For Me?

My freshwater holding tank had a crack so I decided to go to Colonial Airstream and have them replace it for me (luckily covered under extended warranty).  I also had a few things I had planned to take care of myself but instead asked them to do it for me while our Airstream was there.  Check out what and how they did…

Product Review: The Ringer (You Need This!)

I had the Tank Tire installed on my propane tanks and thought I was all set until I was contacted by Greenlight Products and offered The Ringer to test and review.


Every feature that I did not know I needed had been thought of with The Ringer. You definitely need one or two!

Product Review: Decked Truck Bed Tool Box

I removed my Fold-A-Cover G4 Elite bed cover with the personal caddy to install the Leitner rack so I lost all of the protected bed storage I was used to so I had to find a alternative. I have seen the Decked product in various places online over the last couple years and wanted to be able to use someday – well someday has come and now you can see what I am talking about!

Our Solar Install by SolarTech Energy Systems

We had a complete power system upgrade a couple years back and I never posted any of the details.  Lew Farber from SolarTech Energy Systems did the install at his shop in Naples, Florida.  We were very very happy with his quality of work and would highly recommend him. He is also a very nice guy.

Other than the obvious there are two added benefits we now have since Lew completed the installation.  By moving the batteries into the trailer and closer to the axles we have less tongue weight and I now do not have separate AC and DC outlets. 

• 4 SP-100 solar panel kits
• 1 Signature Victron 30/MPPT/6 controller core with Bluetooth monitoring and battery monitor

• 1 Magnum MS-2012 2000 watt sine wave inverter
• 1 Magnum ME-RC remote
• 1 Magnum class T fuse kit

There are a few other things I had him do while he had everything torn apart – two 12v fridge fans, his WeBoost 4G-X high gain cell boost package, and he added the Winegard Rayzar antenna.
