I installed some Morimoto 2Stroke 2.0 H13 LED bulbs in my 2013 E350. Hopefully they will be an improvement over the stock halogen bulbs. I'll test them out tonight.

I also got the van prepped for a road trip we start this Thursday night.

Great idea! After trying to fill my water tank with 5 gallon jugs through a funnel and hose while in Baja this will be a great upgrade. I've put in on my mod list.

It's likely you will end up blinding oncoming traffic unless your housings are designed specifically for LED bulbs. You may also be at risk for a ticket. Here's a good explanation of why that is.

Replaced the electric window regulator on the drivers side. It is nice to have it operational again.

Over the last week I removed my Suburban propane furnace and rebuilt it with a tune up kit from pdxrvwholesale.com. I didn't know why it would only fire up intermittantly, sometimes after 10 or more tries. It was especially difficult to start at altitude. Since I didn't know exactly what was wrong with it I decided to throw parts at it. Good news, it worked! It now starts up on the first try! Attached is a pic of the parts that were replaced.

Makes it real easy to winterize, clean the tank, and fill from a jug if I have to.
I used a 6-1/2" dia. hole saw to make the cutout. A shop vac to clean up the
shavings. Six #8x1" SS OH machine screws with nylocks and flat washers.
Some silicone sealant.
I just did 2 of these yesterday. The first one was really a learning experience. We found it very difficult to thread and tighten up the nylocks, plus we used too much silicone sealant which made a mess while trying to thread and tighten the bolts.

On the second tank we switched to stainless steel 3/4", #8 screws which made the job much faster and easier. And no mess!

One of the first things I did on my SMB when I bought it in 2014 was replace the overhead fluorescent lights with LED strip lights. When I did this I also added a second switch. So I had on one of the switches two strips of 24 LEDs and on the other two strips of 18 LEDs. I have found that I almost never use the second switch with the two strips of 18 so I thought I would swap them out for red to allow for some light which wouldn't ruin night vision. I did this for the two overhead fixtures like the one pictured. These provide enough light to find things in the overhead cabinets but don't ruin night vision.
