In my ongoing effort to shore up the electrical system on my '87, I tracked down a mysterious electrical bug (voltmeter going crazy at random) to my main breaker. One of the connectors was loose and was making a poor connection (you can see the corroded terminal below).

I replaced the breaker with a new Blue Sea unit this weekend and everything has been steady since.

Also, you can't see it in the pictures but I took a tooth brush to EVERY nook and cranny, under the seats, in all the grooves, inside and out, EVERY WHERE!

Then I followed up with the recommended 303 Protectant.....I cleaned the trailer and tires and then protected them as well.

OH and I added an MP3 input to the stereo for the ipod. That was more of a whim... I'd have preferred to have just upgraded the head unit but I chose to pick up a Box Anchor instead. It seemed like the right decision, should do the trick to get me through the season.

Very nice. I swear I am not taking all your ideas. You are just beating me to the punch, as I continue to upgrade my 04 Star and trailer!
