1. Changed the outside light to an LED light with several different brightnesses
2. Got it washed at Blue Beacon
3. Changed out a storage latch that broke
4. Got a "blind" lady to adjust the tension on the day-night shades
5. Got on top to take measurements for solar panels. I can fit at least six 190W panels if not eight of them.
6. Finished changing out the tail lights and cyclops light to LED bulbs. I changed out one side but not the other side last trip to see what the difference was. The LED tail lights are brighter.
7. Applied Aerospace 303 to the tires
8. Installed an LED bulb in the light under the microwave. It took us a couple of years to find the right one.
9. Took several naps..........
10. Installed the light bar on the Jeep - does that count for a half point?

Well I had a lunchon invite so when I got home I hooked the towed up because the computer for reservations says this is a 25 foot site. I backed a 38 foot motor home ontto it (with room to spare) and then went back to the road and pulled the car in in front of the MH with room for another and then some.. Today when I got home. I backed in past the MH and hooked up so I'll be faster to split in the AM... NOTE. the comptuer said 35 foot. The care is about 28 foot the motor home 38 and I had room for at least 3 cars (only two allowed) on site more if I parked 2 of 'em beside the RV.


Home is where I park it.

WOW! Had not posted in this forum in a long time, but here we go.

I had a bad ignition switch so I decided to buy the switch at Napa and tackle it myself. I got the Freight liner switch through a cross reference from another manufacturer because they told me that the switch was no where in the USA. But they told me they had the exact switch by Napa. So instead of paying Sixty dollars on the internet I got it for thirty two through Napa.

So I was not sure how I was going to pull the part where the tumblers were caged in, so I referred to You Tube and I found one on how to replace the switch on a Fore Travel coach which looked exactly like the one on my coach. It told me to turn the key all the way to the left and get a paper clip and push into a little hole next to where you insert the key and believe it, it come right out. Unscrew the bezel and then just unplug the harness from the back of the switch, put it back together and your done. It probably would have cost me a couple of hundred dollars if I had taken it in to a RV shop. So I saved a couple of hundred at least. Turned the key on and the monster come alive right away.

Why change the transmission fluid at 200 miles? Seems like a waste of money.

I checked out my 5 year old Michelin 245/19.5 size tires and noticed that the front driver side tire has sidewall check cracking.
Much to my surprise?
I took a picture and went back to the tire store.
They said call Michelin. I haven't done this as of yet. but,
3rd set of tires on my coach.
always a Goodyear man, but they priced themselves out of my budget.
I always cover the tires and park them on deck material Trex pads
This to me is totally unacceptable
the tires that I got rid of were in much better shape than this POS tire. the tires have a 2514 date code on them.
The owner of the tire store made a comment as soon as I said sidewall cracking. Are they Michelin tires? Like they expect them to do this.
Totally Bull **** to me.
I hope none of you have these POS tires on your coach.
FYI
Wish me luck in getting this issue resolved

Well, I showed my rig to a prospective buyer this morning.[emoticon] We're 2K apart and we may meet in the middle but I really want what I'm asking. I priced it a average NADA Retail and he is 2K under that.

I'm sending him a copy of current ad for a like model for 9K more than I'm asking. I'll also ask him to make another offer.

I really want to sell it and be rid of it now that we can no longer bring it to the house to load and unload. No HOA or anything like that, it's the Fire Department. They say that if they need to get their big rigs up our stree, they couldn't get by our Winnie.

Oh Well.....

Finally installed true battery disconnect switches on both the starting and house batteries. It's so nice not to have to disconnect the battery cables now when putting it into storage.

Also changed the starting batteries as they were over seven years old and they were having problems starting the DP when it was down below freezing. The Interstate distributors had 20% or 25% off for veterans.

We installed room darkening/cooling panels behind the front windshield curtain. We had a big piece of reflective stuff that worked, but was a pain in my a.. to put up and take down each time. I bought these panels off amazon for $50, and pinned behind the existing curtains, which seems to work great. Also cuts down on set up and breakdown time by about 5 minutes!
