Yeah, I just wanted to take advantage of the sale. The 5 gallon buckets were $32.99 iirc.

Hope you can get it all figured out! It is ridiculous that some people make things so much harder because they don't understand or don't agree with the lifestyle choice. We have had this bus one week, haven't even lived in yet, and we can already feel the heat. Maybe you should bring her roses or something

Seemed like a reasonable idea so I installed them on my rig. My fuel tanks sending unit is right where the tires would sling the aforementioned crud. But if you go this route, note that some form of retention is necessary to keep the flaps from being blown back and rubbing against the tires. I attached some light cable via a stout spring to keep them off the tires.

Just a thought.
Thanks, I'll look into this.
Any excuse to install more mud flappage is great!

Yes, actually one of the fans I got from the seller came with a reverse/on/off switch installed. I guess its a slightly more expensive model.
I'm going to put a switch on the other one.
Starting to wish I'd bought three of these units though. They were a good deal.

They're nice units but NO WAY would I ever pay retail for one @ $150.

I actually saw a non-powered Fantastic vent pop up on Ebay this morning for a low price so I grabbed it as soon as it was listed. 35 shipped isn't too bad. They're fifty bucks retail.
I really like these vents. Very needed in Fl!

My title and paperwork should be here today. I'm very excited. Paid off my insurance for the year and now I'm going to be legal!
Still thinking about custom tags.

I've gotten all kinds of conflicting info on the tags. You're probably right, I most likely will not be able to. But it would be cool. I've never done the personalized tags before. I'm fairly sure I've seen coaches with them though.
I'm not sure what I will end up with, but I'll just be happy to have it driveable. At least legally. A thousand miles of mixed driving with no tag has been a bit nerve racking.
