HEPVO VALVE

The Hepvo is the key component in the Valvectomy mod. Its installation does away with the troublesome rubber shower trap and shower valve and helps to correct an uphill issue on 2008 and later models. It requires no winterization and can also be used in either sink to help create space or further reduce the requirement for winterization.
Read all about it here: We don't need no stinkin' P trap.

FAST GRAY KIT

NEW IMPROVED VERSION!
Upgraded to correct the black angle!

If you’re up for this mod, you’ll spend more time and money gathering the parts than actually doing the work. We’ve done all the shopping and gathering for you in this complete Fast Gray Kit. It even includes a near universal fit bracket and the new 2 ½” EMT hanger.

This is the same collection of parts I carry when I crawl under one to tame the gray! This mod corrects up to ¾” of the uphill issue with the gray drain as well as allowing complete drainage of the gray tank. Some, but not all, will experience a gain in capacity as well.

Every tank drains at a different rate but all will experience significant reduction in dump time. After this mod, most drain in less than three minutes.

Kits include all parts necessary including the pipe. Be sure to let us know the year model as some early 17’s require that we have a bit of conversation before we ship. Let us know if you just need some individual parts and we’ll try to help.

Fast Gray Kit$154.95

VENT MOD

After a great deal of experimenting we still believe our way of doing the vent mod is the best. So we've come up with a kit that includes all the parts and complete instructions to do it the same way we've successfully done it on hundreds of Casitas. The kit requires that you own an 11/16" drill bit (paddle style will work fine) but you must also beg, borrow or steal a 1/2" pipe tap to cut threads into the tank and PVC T. If you can't access this tool, you could always drive by your local plumbers shop after you've drilled the holes and have it done. It takes less than 5 minutes to tap the threads by hand. Some have successfully forced the threaded fitting into a slightly larger hole and cemented them in with a product called ShoeGoo. It's available at your local athletic shoe store and will stick to all types of rubber and plastic.

Note: This kit will only work on 17 foot Casitas made after 1996!

Vent Mod Kit with Instructions$6.95

TOILET VALVE

This is a direct replacement valve for the Thetford AquaMagic V toilet used by Casita since about 2004. We also have the valve for the earlier AquaMagic IV used from approximately 2000 until sometime in 04. The IV would be identifyed by its two foot pedals. About a 20 minute job to replace. The symptom dictating replacement is water pouring out the back of the toilet. Note the next product is an emergency cure for this problem that still lets you use the rest of your water system. (see Toilet Supply Mod)

Thetford AquaMagic V replacement valve$30.00
Thetford AquaMagic IV replacement valve$30.00

TOILET SUPPLY MOD

This a simple mod that could save a camping trip from disaster. Cut the supply line to the toilet and plug in this quick connect ¼ turn valve. If your toilet valve leaks or won’t stop flushing simply cut off the water to the toilet and keep on camping! The toilet can be flushed manually using your shower head. This mod is also a benefit to Boondockers as it allows you to flush the toilet without consuming water (the foot pedal still works) or recycling gray water or using the shower head as need dictates.

Toilet Supply Mod$11.25

RHINOFLEX 45 DEGREE SWIVEL

This 45 degree fitting is a popular and useful addition to your sewer hose kit. It costs a bit more than the popular model, but we prefer it for several reasons. First, it features the famous double o-ring seal that makes the RHINOFLEX hose so popular. Second it has 4 locking lugs on the ends offering a very positive seal. And third, it’s opaque instead of clear. It lets you see what’s going on as you drain and flush without providing “too much information”. Debbie thinks it’s much more civilized!

Rhinoflex 45 degree swivel$8.50

RHINOFLEX 5’ SEWER EXTENSION

We carry the infamous favorite, the RHINOFLEX 15’ sewer hose that so many folks prefer. But even at 15’, it frequently limits our set up location. Clearly the people that plumb parks don’t own RV’s. We began carrying this 5’ male/female extension and found that it gives us the flexibility we need to set up where we want within the site.

We’ve also discovered that at 5’ long, it’s usually long enough to be all we need at the dump station if we’re camping in a state park. No need to drag out the full 15’ hose when you’re parked 4 feet from the cleanout. It’s much easier to rinse out as well. If you have an older model Casita with the Valterra sewer hose carrier behind the propane tanks, a bit of minor trimming of the RHINOFLEX hand lugs will allow it to fit in the factory carrier. It will not fit the rear factory bumper if you’re already carrying the 15’ version.

5’ RHINOFLEX extension with male/female bayonet fittings$21.50

BATHROOM & KITCHEN REMODEL KITS

This is one of our most popular on-site mods and now it’s available in the store. Treat yourself to a bit of style with this kit. We remove the 70’s style bath faucet and shower head and replace it with a 6” bar faucet ideal for large hands or a reasonable size water glass. This faucet is a Little House Customs exclusive, custom manufactured by Phoenix Faucets just for us. We add the matching shower control and a 3 way adjustable shower head that included a pulsating massage feature. All the parts including the quick connect fitting and the pipe are included. Make it all come together with the optional matching kitchen upgrade as well.

Note: The Bath Remodel Kits will not work with the new 2013 baths of all floor plans.

Note: The Kitchen Upgrade will not work with 2013 Libertys. And 2013 Independence will not work IF you have the new recessed faucet below the fiberglass spice cabinet. Call if you have questions.

Bath Remodel Kit only$144.50
Kitchen upgrade (if you already own a Phoenix or Utopia high rise)$42.95
Kitchen upgrade (if you need a high rise spout)$51.95

STEEL WATER HEATER DOOR LATCH

Your plastic water heater door latch will break eventually. Why wait? Duct tape is about the only solution when it does. If your grip isn’t what it used to be, this one is strong enough to grab with pliers.

Steel water heater door latch$3.49

ANODE

These are full length (9 ½”) anodes made by Aqua Pro. While they should be removed and checked at least once a year, water chemistry can consume one much faster. They must be removed to drain the heater and draining helps prevent the rotten egg smell that many encounter. Many folks remove and inspect them after every trip.

Magnesium anode$13.50
Aluminum anode$13.50

SUBURBAN WATER HEATER ELEMENT AND OPTIONAL WRENCH

Forgot to turn off the heater before you drained it? Don’t be embarrassed, you’re not the first! We have the genuine original Suburban replacement part along with our step by step instructions. This is not a difficult project and if you can change your anode, you can change your element. This is not a generic hardware store element. It is the correct OE model for your heater.

We also stock a wrench designed just for elements. Order it if you don’t have one. No other tool will fit quite right.

Suburban Water Heater Element with instructions$24.95
Element Wrench$6.95
Save when you order both at once.
Element, Instructions and Wrench$31.00

TANK FLUSH WAND WITH SHUT OFF VALVE

This is the same wand we use here in the shop for performing water heater serice. It's angled tip and long reach make it easy to reach the far corners of the tank and all around the electric element. The positive shut off valve makes this an easy project! Flushing your tank regularly is an important part of water system hygiene. The accumulations are the result of water chemistry as it acts on your anode along with grit from campground supply systems. Frequent flushing will keep your faucet areators clean and stave off the dredded purple flakes. Purple flakes in your tank flush water indicated the degradation of your tank lining and dictate more frequent anode replacement and more regular flushing to remove these sediments. We also find this to be a particularly handy nozzle for filling the fresh tank!

Tank Flush Wand$9.95

UTOPIA HI RISE FAUCET

The Utopia Hi Rise makes your kitchen sink usable again! A very few early 16’s and some later 17’ Libertys have the sink mounted further back in the counter and cannot use this spout because it hits the wire basket. Measure to be sure it fits. You must have at least 6” of vertical clearance above the knurled ring for this spout to work.

If not we try to keep the Phoenix spout in stock which can be converted to fit your Utopia valve set. The Phoenix is angular in design similar to the factory spout, but climbs nearly as high as the Utopia.

Utopia Hi Rise Spout$24.25
Phoenix Hi Rise Spout$23.00

PHOENIX SWIVEL AERATOR

This aerator replaces the stock one on all Phoenix and Utopia faucets with the included adaptor. It works particulary well with the 6” bar faucet used in the Bath Remodel and the Phoenix and Utopia hi rise faucets. It swivels to allow the water stream to reach the corners of the sink for rinsing. In addition it instantly adjusts from spray to stream by pulling up or down on the swivel head.

Phoenix swivel aerator$6.49

SNEAKY PETE GRAY WATER SEWER CAP WITH TEXAS WINTERIZING ADAPTER

NEW IMPROVED VERSION!

We've been making this kit for some time now and a good idea just got better! We use one too and I keep losing the screen cap since there is no way to attach it and I keep forgetting where I store it. So we've attached a threaded fitting and your storage cap stores right where you need it next. For those that have already bought the kit, we haven't neglected you. We have the upgrade available as well.

While we certainly don’t advocate illegal activities, this cap will allow you to discharge your gray water through a garden hose anywhere it’s either legal or socially acceptable. It also makes it easier to catch and control those nasty spills if you have leaky valves. One source of tank odors is bacteria thriving on the wet remains in your tanks. We like to keep the valves open so the system can air out.

The adaptor screws on to the garden hose fitting and is screened to keep critters from moving in. Air flows freely through the cap, the tanks and out your roof vents. Many of us here in Texas use this system when we winterize as well.

Sewer cap with garden hose fitting and extra vented, screened cap$9.75
Upgrade kit for the old model (includes cap and rivet)$2.00
Replacement rubber tether (works with original equipment cap as well)$0.50

CITY WATER CONNECTION

We’ve replaced our city water port in our Casita several times over the years. I hate leaks, and I hate using pliers to tighten fittings designed to tighten by hand. It seems that using pliers to tighten brass hand fittings permanently deforms them and they leak worse than ever. Stange as it sounds, we’ve found our solution in a flexible plastic fitting. We like the hand wheel, we like that it seems to deform to the profile of a deformed hose and springs back to it’s original shape when removed and we really like that it doesn’t seem to leak. We’ve had this one on our Casita for two years now and we’re convinced.

It requires two people to replace this part but we’ll include a “how to” with pictures as well as the correct rivets.

City Water Connection$19.95

CITY WATER CONNECTION PLUG

Ok, so you lost the cap for your city water connection, or it's internal check valve has gone south and all the water leaks out of your fresh tank. While replacing the entire port is one solution we offer, most of us would rather just go camping. We found a solution that could make that happen. Simply screw in this threaded plug and it provides a water tight seal. It has an attached tether and we provide a rivet, snap cap and a base so that you can optionally hang the cap near your city water port when not in use.

City Water Connection Plug$2.29

CONNECT IT TIGHT

If your hands aren't quite as strong as they used to be and don't want to go to all the trouble of changing the entire port, this handy star wheel might be the answer. It's toothed inside slides over your original factory city water port and gives you the same easy grip surface as the one on our replacement port. The knurling on your original brass connection must be in good condition for this to mate properly. If you've already resorted to Channel Locks and rounded the brass fitting smooth, it's too late for this to work and you must replace the entire port.

Connect it Tight Star Wheel$4.79

SHORE POWER BUG GUARD

We've been using this Bug Guard for some time now and love it! This rubber plug very snugly fits the opening of many Casita electrical hatches, surrounds the cable tightly and prevents all but the most microscopic of critters from entering through the hatch.

Note: You must measure the width of the slot in your electrical hatch to determine if this will fit. It fits ONLY those that measure 1 1/4" in width. It will NOT fit those that are 1 1/2" although we hope to have one for them soon.

Shore Power Bug Guard$12.95

EZ ID LED FUSE KIT

We’ve put together a complete kit to replace all the 12vdc fuses in your converter with these easy to interpret fuses. In the event you blow a fuse you don’t have to be confused about which one. When the fuse blows it lights up with an internal LED. Our kit is generic and fits the “average” Casita. It includes two 30amp fuses for the later model or upgraded reverse polarity protection circuit, seven 15 amp fuses and one 10amp. We stock individual replacement fuses so you don’t have to buy an entire kit if you do accidentally blow one.

EZ ID LED fuse kit for all Casitas$16.95
Individual replacement fuses (specify 10, 15 or 30 amp)$2.00

PROGRESSIVE DYNAMICS 4635 CONVERTER UPGRADE/REPLACEMENT LOWER UNIT

We have installed this both as an upgrade and as a replacement for the factory unit in many Casitas including our own. If you lose your lower unit, this is the ideal replacement for any of the Parallax or Magnetek units. The Charge Wizard technology really babies your battery and the upgraded DC distrubution board has a really handy feature. It includes a row of LED's under each fuse position and they light up indicating a blown fuse.

Also included in this unit is the two 30 amp reverse polarity protection fuses that help to save your converter in the event of a battery hook up error. You can read more details by clicking here. This unit replaces only the lower half (battery charger section) of your converter along with the fuse panel.

Progressive Dynamics 4635 Converter$210.00

30 AMP SURGE PROTECTOR WITH BUILT IN FAULT DETECTION

We travel with 2 laptops, two cell phones and two printers and a scanner. Too much stuff, but that’s what it takes for us to stay in touch with our friends and customers while on the road. After seeing some campground electrical disasters, I decided it was time to protect our equipment from any electrical gremlins that might be lurking. This is the one we use now. It protects up to 835 joules and 22,500 amps. I don’t have to know what that means to like it. My electrical guru friends say that’s plenty and that’s good enough for me! But what I really like is the built-in wiring fault detector that lets you know what’s up with that crusty looking power pole you’re about to plug your precious Casita into. It gives LED indication of all possible wiring faults that may be present. About the only thing it won’t do for you is take the issue up with the campground manager!

RV Smart Surge Protector$89.95

BATTERY CUTOFF SWITCH

Most of the work’s been done on this switch kit for you. We have the Harbor cutoff switch mounted on a bracket that attaches to your factory battery hold down bolt and wing-nut.

We include the pre-terminated 8ga flexible wire cut long enough to set your battery on the ground if you need to remove it for service.

We supply a terminal block with ⅜” solid brass lugs and provide the rivets to attach it to the inside of the battery case as well as three additional crimp on rings to add to your factory wires after you shorten them.

The way we rig it, no tools are required to remove your battery. The kit is even reversible for lefties!

Battery cut off switch kit$69.50
Bracket only (mounts on battery tray hold down bolt)$12.50

Note: Send us an email if you don’t have the late model style battery tray and we’ll figure it out together.

TOGGLE SWITCH STYLE BATTERY CUT OFF SWITCH

We also have the toggle switch style cut off for those that don’t have room or don’t want the rotary style switch in front of the battery. If your battery compartment is full with solar connections, battery tenders and other miscellaneous add-on cabling this this is the kit for you. The switch mounts on a low profile bracket to the battery box wall adjacent to the water heater, features shorter, easier to handle cables and is a much more compact design.

Toggle Switch Style Battery Cut Off Switch$69.50

BATTERY FLEXI CABLE SET WITH TERMINAL BLOCK

For those early model owners who don't feel a need for a disconnect switch, we offer this cable set made from high strand, super flexible 8 guage cable along with the same terminal blocks we provide with our cut off sets. Both the positive and negative cables are long enough to allow the bettery to reach the ground and the terminal block provides a great place to hook up an external charger or solar set up without cluttering up your battery terminals.

Battery Flexi Cable Set with Terminal Block$27.95

ANDERSON DISCONNECT FLEXI CABLE SET WITH TERMINAL BLOCK

We're now offering yet a fourth version of a battery cable set utilizing the popular Anderson connector. These industrial strength connectors offer a convienent way to disconnect your battery so it can be easily removed for checking the water, short term disconnecting to prevent drain from parasitic loads or total removal for long term winter storage.

We incorporate the same super flexible marine wire and our terminal block that we use in our other battery kits. This gets the factory stiff wire completly out of the equation and provides a convienent spot for attaching additional accessories. The wiring is sized to allow you to insert your battery into the cave either positive or negative terminal first. This feature allows for the use of an after market battery that might have reversed terminal placement from the factory Interstate battery.

Intallation is straight forward and requires only the installation of two rivets and three crimped connections. Half the fun of this project is sending about 6 feet of super stiff wire off to the recyclers!

Anderson Disconnect Flexi Cable Set with Terminal Block$49.95

A/C AUTO RESET HIGH TEMPERATURE LIMIT SWITCH

This is the original equipment switch used by Coleman prior to changing to the manual reset version. If your manual reset version trips in normal operation it may be defective and changing to this version will solve your problems. It only takes about 20 minutes to change and requires only a screwdriver.

A/C Auto Reset High Temperature Limit Switch$12.95

REPLACEMENT A/C FILTERS

These are genuine original equipment Coleman filters and will fit all Coleman Polar Cub, Mach 8, 1 and Mach 3 A/C units. The dimensions are 3 1/8" x 15 and comes two filters in a package.

A/C Filter Package$7.59

REPLACEMENT LOUVERS FOR CEILING GRILL

Finally you can replace those missing louvers on the ceiling register! Simple to install without removing the ceiling assembly. Fits all Polar Cubs as well as the newer Mach 8. Price includes one bar and its vanes.

Replacement Louvers$9.49

HARD START CAPACITOR

This is a MARS brand hard start capacitor recommended by several Heat & Air contractor friends of ours. We’ve been selling them for some time now both as a back up for your primary and to serve it’s intended function to ease the strain on your generator.

MARS brand Hard Start capacitor$13.75

LIGHTED WATER PUMP SWITCH KIT

We use a white JR Products lighted switch (red light) and couple it with a white wall plate that’s the same rivet spacing as the chrome one you have and include two 1/8” white rivets and a pre terminated ground wire. This switch matches the one we use on the Auto A/C kit for a coordinated look. Simply drill out the old rivets, plug in the new switch and attach the ground wire to your furnace case. We even include the sheet metal screw. If you don’t have the furnace, let us know and we’ll make the kit up to reach the nearest ground. It can usually be found in the lower left side of the sink cab on Freedoms and Spirits. A bit tougher on the Liberty but let us know which you have.

Lighted Water Pump Switch Kit$16.50

ILLUMINATED WATER HEATER SWITCH

We're now using an illuminated switch that matches our entire family of interior switches. Our switch functions exactly like your old Suburban switch but on ours the on/off switch stays illuminated the entire time the switch is in the ON position serving a much needed reminder that your propane heater is activated. The adjacent red indicator functions the same as your original, letting you know your heater is going through it's ignition sequence. Very easy to install! Two rivets to replace (or two screws on Freedoms) and four color coded wires to connect.

Illuminated Water Heater Switch Kit$21.75

DIGITAL 12VDC VOLTMETER
(plug-in style)

This is a popular accessory with our solar powered boondocking friends but works equally well for confirming all sorts of 12vdc issues. Simply plug it in to an accessory outlet and it reads vdc in tenths of a volt as well as providing an illuminated status indicator.

Digital 12vdc voltmeter$17.25

THREE WAY PORCH LIGHT WIRING KIT

This pre-terminated kit makes it really easy to turn your porch light into a genuine three way switch. Great for turning on that outside light when things go bump in the night! The light can be turned on or off from both the inside switch or the outside switch. No soldering, no crimping and no hunting for buried wires under the carpet or behind your built-in microwave. If you have the built-in microwave there is no need to remove it. You simply drill out one of the rivets in the vent by the door, rotate it out of the way, and there is then plenty of room to snake the wire to the new inside switch location. We even include a replacement rivet! Our kit includes a harness long enough to mount the new inside switch in the side of the microwave cabinet near the door. We've found it difficult on some models to route the wire lower into the fridge cabinet, so we made it easy! You must only drill a hole in the back of your light fixture into the microwave cabinet and drill or cut a hole for the inside switch. And of course our easy to follow instructions are included. Works with both the Bargman as well as the Optronics exterior light fixtures.

Three Way Porch Light Switch Kit with Pre-Terminated Harness$29.95

BARGMAN ASH WHITE EXTERIOR PORCH LIGHT WITH SWITCH

This is the original equipment light used by Casita for many years. You can add one by your sewer connection or anywhere else that you need more light. We've added a second one on the curb side of our Casita to light up the patio a bit more. Others have added one above the water and sewer connections for hooking up after dark. This original equipment light includes a clear lens.

Bargman White Exterior Porch Light with Switch$9.25

BARGMAN AMBER LENS

Keep the bugs away with this amber Bargman lens that fits the porch light as well as the light on the front over the propane tanks. This lens fits the Bargman fixture only! It measures 5 5/16” wide by 2 5/16” tall not counting the locking tabs. It will NOT fit the other fixture that Casita has used occasionally in between 2008 and 2011. Please measure your lens before ordering! We have been unable to document the exact date for the changes. It’s believed that in mid 2011 Casita switched back to the Bargman fixture.
See the item below if you don’t have the Bargman.

Bargman Amber Lens$4.98

REPLACEMENT LIGHT BULBS

So plenty of people sell LED bulbs but many of us don't need LEDs or want them. So where do you go to get plain old incandescent bulbs for our interior and exterior fixtures? Right here at LHC! This is a 10 pack of the correct 1141 bulbs for all of our Bargman, Gustafson and Optronics fixtures. 21 candle power.

10 Pack of 1141 light bulbs$8.49

OPTRONICS AMBER LENS
For 2010's

Yep, not only do we have them, we promise not to send you a Bargman lens when you order this one! While the Optronics was used primarily in 2010, I’ve found some on 09’s and some early 2011 models. Check your outside fixtures before ordering. This lens is 5 ⅞” wide by 2 ¼” tall not counting the attaching tabs. It has the dotted pattern like your original.

Optronics Amber Lens$4.25

CONNECTOR STORAGE BRACKET

Want to keep the Casita 7 pin pigtail out of the mud and elements when camping or in storage? Yep, we do too! We have looked at all the brands on the market and rejected them as either too hard to install or too expensive. Then we found this one! Heavy duty screw type straps anchor it solidly to your tongue jack. All you need is a phillips head screwdriver! We have installed more than a few and had them thoroughly tested. Your Bargman 7 pin connector simply snaps into place under the element shielding hood.

Connector Storage Bracket$6.95

OPENING DOOR WINDOW FOR 17'S

This replacement door window really improves the view out the curb side of our Casitas! It comes with a black frame and tempered, tinted glass. And it opens to improve ventilation! It includes a hold-open feature and a very positive security latch. We find it's very easy to install. The outer dimensions of the frame are 16 1/8" by 25 1/8", a bit larger than the factory frame, but fits the factory cut out just fine. In 1999, 2000 and possibly later Casita used a window that was much more narrow and taller. Our operable window will not fit these trailers.

Casita used a much narrower window in some early models and we have not had an opportunity to see if this opening can be enlarged. We'll report back when we do. Some are installing a screen door push bar high and simply hanging a bath towel over it at night and others are using our door curtain set for night time privacy.

Opening Door Window for 17's$154.95

WINDOW AWNINGS

So the sun is shining in the window, heating up the Casita, but the view is too spectacular to close the blinds or curtains? We have the solution! Full View window awnings. We've taken all the confusion out of this project by stocking just the awnings that fit your windows in the color that matches the graphics of your Casita. The navy Full View fabric blocks 85% of the sun while still offering a view of the scenery. The fabric is a shade cloth that is so transparent, you can actually view the moon and stars through it at night. They really dress up the Casita as well.

We've modified the Carefree of Colorado instructions to make them relevant to installing them on our fiberglass shells. Be sure to let us know your year, length and floorplan so we can send you the ones you need.

Note: We cannot put an awning on the rear window of our Casitas due to interference of the arms with the curve of the body. However, we're working on a matching pull down shade and hope to have it available soon.

Window awnings for the small side windows of SD and FD's$261.00
Window awnings for the large windows of all floor plans$281.00

THE HIGH STEP NO MORE 24" DOUBLE STEP KIT

Entering and exiting you high lift, 15 inch tire Casita no longer has to be a cardio exercise. You can leave your aerobic step at home! We've put together a "no weld" bolt on replacement double step kit. We've done all of the welding, modifying and fabricating here in the shop.

When installed the highest step is seven inches below your threshold. The second step is seven inches below that. The remaining distance to the ground will vary depending upon where you camp, but will likely end up between five and eight inches. All-in all, a very manageable staircase.

The step is not difficult to install. While it can be done with a hack saw, a file and an electric drill, it would be easier if you owned, could borrow, or rent a reciprocating saw and a hand held grinder. Or if you're like me and believe there is no such thing as too many tools, these tools can be purchased very inexpensively from Harbor Freight Tools.

JAVASCRIPT REQUIRED
and Debbie would be glad to forward you a copy of the installation sheet.

Note: Fits 17's only. We're working on a double step for the 16's.

JACK-E-UP
NEW IMPROVED CASITA VERSION AVAILABLE ONLY FROM LHC

This amazing new jack aid is a really cool solution to those of you with late model tow vehicles. Yep, the tail gate hits the tongue jack and that's a problem. You could use a longer stinger as long as you have 30% of your towing capacity to give up, but for the rest of us, this solves the problem. After you spend 5 minutes installing this, you simply hitch up, raise your jack a couple of turns off the ground, turn your jack 1/3 of a turn by hand and pull it out! Stow it in the back of your truck. (remember you can lay your tail gate down now!)

Or stow it in the now available Jack-E-Hand. The Hand attaches to your coupler under the Jack-E-Up and gives you a convenient place to stow your jack. It includes a locking pin as well and as an added bonus; the Hand doubles as a flag pole holder for many brands of telescoping flag poles. Inside diameter of the hand is 2 1/16.

We've tested this product and really like the safety, ease of use, as well as the stability. We've added a bottom stabilizer bracket that bolts to the existing bracket to take all the play out of your factory jack. This improvement really makes it stable.

For a better understanding of how it works, visit jack-e-up.com and watch the three minute video.

This is NOT a solution for those with electric jacks. For those of you with the Barker or other brands of electric jack, see perfectcasita.com for their Jack Relocation Bracket.

BATHROOM SHELF GUARDS FOR THE NEW 2014 BATH WALL

We've been working on this project with our friend Charlie from RV Widget Works ever since the introduction of the new Casita bathroom for 2014. This design makes the storage pockets of the shower wall much more useful! You can now stow your toiletries on the shelves and travel with them safely retained.

The Shelf Guards simply attach with industrial VHB tape (already installed) and gaps are designed in for drainage.

Bathroom Shelf Guards(2 in the set) $28.50

OVERHEAD SHELF

Another great design by our friend Charlie from RV Widget Works! This shelf will attach to the underside of any of your upper cabinets. It utilizes industrial grade two sided tape so it's easy to install.

It's perfect for cell phones, keys or small tablets or anything else you might need nearby. Clear that clutter off the rest of your horizontal surfaces and stow that gear in one of these.

Overhead Shelf$25.00

UNDERSINK BATHROOM SHELF

This 11-inch by 11-inch pie-shaped shelf is made by our friend Charlie from RV Widget Works. It's made to mount about 12 inches or more below the sink allowing for future trap maintenance. Attaches with industrial 2-sided tape and has holes for draining.

CLOSET SHELF PATTERN SET

We have duplicated the famous closet paterns made by Harold, made a master pattern and are offering faithful reproductions of these well traveled templates. These patterns have proven to be a good average fit for most Casitas. They are made from tempered 1/8" hardboard and can easily be trimmed to fit in the closet location of your choice, then copied to your shelf material. Five different sizes are included. Refer to the "Shelved the Closet" thread on the Casita Forum for discussion on tips and techniques.

Note: These patterns will not fit if you have the new model bathroom with the vanity.
Your closet is a different size.

Closet Shelf Pattern Set$21.95

FRIDGE HINGE REPAIR/DAMAGE PREVENTION KIT

All too often we hear of the top hinge breaking on the 17-foot Dometic fridges. This is bad news when it happens because that top hinge is part of that quite expensive door! This stainless steel bracket is easy to install and will repair that broken hinge permanently or prevent it from happening on one that's not yet broken! The very thin profile is nearly invisible when installed.

Fridge Hinge Repair bracket$21.95

FOLDING KITCHEN SHELF

And speaking of shelves, we've put together this handy folding shelf that rivets to the side of your kitchen counter. Since many of us use the Southern Mattress or the WalMart memory foam mattress, we've cut the shelf to 10" wide by 18" deep. The 10" width should clear when the shelf is folded. It still leaves plenty of room for a coffee maker or simply providing a bit more space for food prep. The shelf is made from 1/2" white poly and is very durable but not heat proof so don't set your hot frying pan down on it!

You lucky owners of LD's or ID's can actually use two! One can be attached to the side of your microwave/fridge cabinet creating a handy spot to stage items destined for the microwave or the fridge. Mount it a bit lower and it makes a handy TV tray. We've already attached the brackets to the shelf in a location that should clear most furnace vents, 120V and 12V outlets. It's possible you might have to relocate the brackets a bit to clear the obstructions on your specific Casita.

We also offer a smaller version of this shelf. It is 6 x 18 and will fit the kitchen and two different places in the bathroom.

Folding Kitchen Shelf with fasteners, brackets and instructions$39.95

VENT HOOD REMOVAL KIT

While there are several ways to deal with the bulky, oversize, head knocker vent hood, this kit is the way we do it here at the shop. We remove the hood and outside damper, replace the damper with a louvered grill because the outlet becomes an inlet. We provide a new damper for the inside as your old one has yellowed and is to hard to clean. We add a piece of window screen to keep the critters at bay, thin white plugs to cover the vent screw holes, and all the rivets. We also include two pieces of prefinished white molding that must be cut to fit. This molding, with some careful silicone work, closely approximates the lower cabinet flange that is cut away at the factory to install the vent.

If you have a 2010 or later, check out our optional DOUBLE Gustfason light fixture. It’s a great way to utilize the old vent wires that come from the cabinet. Fixture not included with kit. Unfortunately Bargman fixtures are gone as well, but it doesn’t hurt to ask as occasionally we find some more.

Note: Removing the vent hood requires that you operate your Fantastic Fan when cooking to remove potentially dangerous gasses.

Vent Hood Removal Kit$26.95
Optional Double Gustafson Light$14.95

GUSTAFSON DOUBLE LIGHT FIXTURE

For those 2010 and later owners, we have a Gustafson double light fixture. The double features clear lenses, incandescent bulbs, and install rivets. We really like the three position switch on this light. It allows for off, one light or both! This fixture would make a great addition in any spot you wish you had a bit more light. That corner you curl up in with a good book or perhaps the entry hall allowing you to shed a bit more light into the closet seem like a couple of great applications. If you run LED’s, put an incandescent in one side for when the LED alone is not quite enough. And of course it make a great way to utilize the left over circuit if you’ve removed your vent hood.

Gustafson Double Light Fixture$14.95

BATHROOM PRIVACY CURTAIN

Debbie has been working on this project for a long time. She wanted a white fabric that would go with any decor, but it had to be water proof, mildew resistant and of course it had to accept the sewn in pleats like the rest of the main cabin curtains. (you know how she is!)

I believe she’s found it with this dotted swiss pure white fabric. It really adds some texture and depth to the otherwise stark bathroom wall. It passes a bit of light but no silhouette is visible through the curtain. The installation is very easy requires no drilling and uses the same track as the rest of our curtains.

Open your window for ventilation while still maintaining your privacy. It easily pulls back or unsnaps if you like to pass a garden hose through the window.

Bathroom Privacy Curtain$24.95

BATHROOM/CLOSET HANGING BAR

While we acknowledge that many of our friends have made their own PVC pipe towel bar, we have been overwhelmed with emails requesting that we offer it in the store. We certainly can't take any credit for the brilliant design but you can read all about it at this Casita Forum thread.

It would seem that some of you would just rather that we do the gathering, cutting, sanding, fitting and handle the harsh chemicals required to assemble this handy device so you can spend more time camping and less time modding! That's OK by us so here they are.

The fitting is cut so it simply snaps onto the vent pipe location of your choice either in the bath or the closet. Friction holds it in place. We don't glue the cap on so it can easily be shortened to what ever length you require. Use it as an extra towel bar, TP holder, magazine rack or whatever. The possibilities are endless. It will pivot once installed or simply snaps off and onto another location as needs change.

Bathroom/Closet Hanging Bar$8.95

AWNING TRAVEL SAFETY STRAP

This strap is designed to insure your awning case stays securely shut when going down the highway. It is made of heavy nylon webbing and has a very positive buckle. We chose blue to match the Casita graphics.

If you have installed a rain gutter, you will have to improvise a way for this strap to penetrate it. It can be sealed in place and the awning can be deployed after the strap is unbuckled.

Awning Travel Safety Strap$5.95
Special price for two!$11.00

FRIDGE BUTTON GUARD

Who hasn’t bumped the fridge control, switched to DC and run their battery down? This new version is made for us by Charlie Young. It's clear, fits the fridge well and doesn't require removal to operate the buttons. It attaches with clear VHB tape to the control panel.

The red color in the photo is the release film on the guard and peels off prior to installation revealing the clear VHB tape.

Button Guard$10.25

APPLIANCE INSECT SCREENS

Mud daubers and other small critters can build their nests inside our water heater and furnace restricting air flow and causing other issues. These easy to install screens all but eliminate the issue. Even if you live in an area where these pest are not common, you might travel to where they are and would want the protection.

We live in the heart of mud dauber country, have used them for years and have never had problems. We currently stock versions for the furnace and water heater and will be adding more soon.

Furnace Insect Screen$17.50
Water Heater Insect Screen$19.50

REFLECTIVE BELLY BAND TAPE

This highly reflective DOT approved tape really adds visibility to the rear and rear quarters of your Casita. We chose silver/white since it's the most reflective and also detracts the least from the curb appeal of our trailers during the day.

We've had it cut to be the correct width for our belly bands and 105" long to reach from the rear of one side window to the rear of the other. Due to the typical variance of one Casita to the next it might need a slight trim at the bottom if installed flush to the top of the band. This is easily accomplished with a single edged razor blade.

In the pictures, we show it photographed at dusk with no flash to illustrate how well it blends in during the day but really jumps out at night with a bit of light on it. Also available in a larger roll, enough for the entire belly band.

Reflective Belly Band Tape, Rear only, 105"$9.95
Reflective Belly Band Tape, Entire belly band$39.95

MULTI CLAMP

For several years we've admired these useful clamps. Current production Casitas come with one designed for keeping your pigtail from falling out of the connector on the back of your tow vehicle but they are useful for many other tasks. We've had so many requests for this item, we simply had to add it to our list of "must haves". You simply turn the knob to reduce or increase the size of the flexible ring. It will clamp as tight as you need.

Multi Clamp$4.25

THUMB TURN CAM LOCKS

These handy thumb turn latches keep your access doors securly latched without the bother of the universal CH751 key! Your battery door and curb side access hatch require the larger 7/8" size and the electric cord hatch and water hatch require the smaller 5/8" size. Some older models may require a bit of finessing to fit to the electric hatch, but it's easy to do! Many early models from the 80's and 90's don't have a locking water tank hatch. Some folks put them on all four while others find the need to keep the key lock on one or more of the hatches so we've priced them individually as well as in a set of four. These will not fit the outside shower.

Thumb Turn Latchesset of 4 $18.95
Individual Thumb Turn Latcheach$4.95
If ordering individual latches be sure to specify which size you need from the description above!

SCREEN DOOR PUSH BAR

We like this bar for several reasons. First, it looks good on our trailers. It’s brushed aluminum with heavy duty black ends. It really stiffens the door, it gives us something else to hang onto when we open the door on windy days and we can hang a towel on it to dry in the breeze. Installed high, it could be a curtain rod or just a second towel bar. We take it out of its package and throw the complex cutting instructions away, cut it to fit our Casitas and assemble it all back together. All you have to do is drill four ⅛” holes in your door and install the mounting screws. It’s that easy.

Screen Door Push Bar$14.99

4’ COILED BREAK AWAY TETHER WITH CLIP AND RING

Here’s the one you want. No more dragging and fraying of your factory break away cable. This one is coiled and just the right length to attach to your TV. Includes attachment ring for the switch end and a speed clip for the TV end.

Coiled break away tether$13.25

COMPLETE BREAK AWAY SWITCH WITH COILED CABLE

Break away switches are required by law in nearly every state. Besides that they're a darn good idea! We have the complete switch along with the desired coiled cable for those early model Casitas that were made without one. It's a simple two wire, one bolt installation.

Complete Breakaway Switch with Coiled Cable$21.95

WINDOW MAXX WINDOW VENTS

Manufacturer discontinued &
TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE
while we search for more!

The WindowMaxx allows you to partially open a window, keep it locked and keep out the rain. Ideal for when you leave your pet alone or when you need ventilation and its raining. We’ve had many requests to add this product. We finally have it, but we’ve added a LHC twist. Ours costs a bit more than others sell it for but there’s a good reason. We start by opening the package and throwing the long complicated Maxx instruction sheet away.

We cut it to fit your window, cut and install the gaskets, drill all the holes, assemble everything, include all the correct hardware for our Casitas and put it all back in the box along with our own simplified instructions. We’ve done all we can do short of coming to your house and putting it on for you! You just have to drill a few holes in the window frame and screw it on.

Let us know what floor plan, year and length Casita you have and which window(s) you want them for and we’ll take care of the rest.

Note: This will NOT fit and CANNOT be installed on your egress window!

Window Maxx Window Vent$51.99

MAXXAIR II VENT COVER

We've installed them all over the years and this is by far our favorite! Its "mama bear" size is not too big and not too small. Plus unlike other brands, it doesn't require holes in the roof or any disruption of the factory vent to roof sealant.

You simply drill some 1/8" pilot holes in the side of the fan body and attach it with the included SS screws. As an added bonus, this model unlatches and hinges out of the way for cleaning the dome of your fan or the underside of the vent cover. Very cool indeed!

For those who need more light inside the Casita, we're also offering the MaxxAir II in smoke.

The smoked cover, coupled with our new clear Fantastic Fan lid really brightens the Casita up. The combination of the two let's you look up and see the moon at night!

Maxxair II Vent Cover$40.95
Maxxair II Vent Cover (Smoke)$50.95
Replacement Fantastic Fan Dome Clear$36.95

RIVET KIT

We package a generous assortment of all the rivet sizes that came on your Casita along with a couple of acorn nuts and some additional sizes useful for mods. We have located a source of 1” slotted rivets and include some of them as well. The slotted rivet expands like a molly bolt and is not so particular about material thickness. It also grabs a larger cross section of the fiberglass on the back side. Casita has used this type of rivet to install your water heater. There are no snap caps in this kit. Instructions included.

Rivet Kit$5.95

SNAP CAPS

We package 100 snap caps and 15 bases in this kit. If you need more than that, let us know and we'll package and price it according to your needs.

Snap Caps$5.95

CASITA CROSS STITCH KIT WITH BLUEBONNETS

This amazing kit will let you pass the time on those rainy camping day. It's a complete kit with instructions suitable for beginners and experienced cross stitchers alike. The kit even lets you customize the Casita to match your own. You can do away with the roof air if you have the front AC or change the size of the curb side window if you own a Liberty. The finished product fits a 4" hoop (not included).

Casita Cross Stitch Kit$7.99

24 CARAT GOLD PLATED INVESTMENT GRADE SNAP CAPS

We work hard here at LHC but we play hard too, enjoy a bit of whimsy, and we love our Casita and treat it like family. "Nothing but the finest" in our Casita is our (or at least Debbie's) motto. You know how she is. When we discovered these she had to have one and of course thinks you might want one or two yourself. Maybe not, but we know some of you like a bit of bling in your trailer and what better way to show your flair than with at least one 24 carat gold plated snap cap. Guys, can't get the Mrs. to go camping as much as you want? Or an anniversary coming up? This could be the answer. While we can't imagine anyone wanting to replace them all with these, who wouldn't want one? The biggest problem would be deciding which! I'll be putting ours inside, no reason to make the Airstream and Prevost owners jealous! They install just like the regular white versions.

Gold Snap Cap, 24 Carat Gold Platedeach $1.75

CASITA RALLY FORMAL WEAR
(24 Carat Gold Plated Earrings/Tie Tacks/Lapel Pins)

Do you dress for dinner when camping? Maybe just for the wine tasting events? Now you can fully accessorize your evening wear or simply show your pride by wearing these bonafide gold plated snap cap earrings. While I'm generally not known as a fashion trend setter being mostly a jeans and t-shirt kind of guy, I do own and have been known to wear my tux or suit. Rest assured I'll be wearing one in my lapel or using one as a tie tack. Debbie hasn't taken hers off since I made the first set!

WHEEL BEARING SETS

These sets include the correct double lipped rear seal as well as two bearings and two races. Also included, for older Casitas, is the D style tang washer with the bendable tabs. And for even older Casitas, the cotter pin. On later model Casitas, your nut retaining cage is reusable. Each set rebuilds one side of an axle, so order two sets to do the complete job.

Fits 3500lb axle with 10” brakes. We’ll be adding the bearings for the 2500lb axle soon.

REPLACEMENT SEALS

If you plan on cleaning and repacking your existing bearings, you’ll still need to replace the inner seal. This is the correct double lipped model for your EZLube axle.

Replacement Sealsper pair $8.00

ORBITAL MACHINE WORKS 3 INCH BOLT ON LIFT KIT

This totally bolt on kit will give plenty of room for the 15" tires of your choice. It lowers a bolt on 10 degree up standard axle or the 10 degree down high lift axle a full three inches for tire clearance or off road use. It will fit all 13's. 16's and 17's with the bolt on axle.

If your axle is welded on, it will not work unless you cut it off and weld on Dexters weld on/bolt on brackets. We run this kit on our own Casita with the standard axle and 225/75/15 tires. No clearance issues at all.

Our friends at Orbital are handling the mail order of this item as well as the rest of their products, so contact them directly at perfectcasita.com.

RUBBER DUST CAP

This is the correct part to replace your torn, missing or leaking dust cap that protects the zerk fitting. We recommend adding a small bead of RTV to the groove to minimize splatter on your rims.

Rubber Dust Capeach $1.50

REPLACEMENT GREASE CAP

We've been stocking these replacements at the shop for some time now. It seems some service departments are fond of removing your grease caps with a giant pair of Channel Locks or the biggest hammer they can find. That's not our style so when we encounter a pair that's been abused, we replace them. It's actually easier to replace them than it is to clean your old ones so you might as well pick up a pair while you're ordering your new wheel bearings. Rubber dust caps sold separately.

Replacement Grease Capeach $2.69

SHIPPING NOTES

We currently use USPS for almost all of our shipping. Most packages ship Priority Mail as it’s a small percentage higher than Parcel Post. Debbie evaluates each and every shipment in an effort to maximize your shipping dollar. Most heavy packages ship either parcel post or FedEx Ground.

We do ship even when we’re at a rally. But can’t always receive our restocking shipments in time. We may actually have to delay your order until we return or in some cases can only ship every other day while attending a rally. Your patience is much appreciated.
