After a good washing yesterday I got up early (while the camper is in the shade and the temp has not exceeded 100--yet) to put a good coat of Meguiar's Marine/RV one step Cleaner Wax on. I'm a huge fan of Aerospace 303 and use that in-between full waxes. I think it has made a huge difference in keeping the gel coat shiny.

Here's a pic of my nose cap half waxed and half not waxed. Where its parked during non-use the Nose Cap and roof gets the most sunlight.

I was pleased with the contamination that came off the gel coat. I still have some strong bug marks but overall it looks great - all finished and polished! The decals are showing their age! In the heat of the hot summers I get small ripples at the top of the cap. Anyone seen that before?

Our RV air conditioner stopped working. Blowing warm air, but I could tell the compressor would try to startup for a second or two. Got on the roof and measured the 5/50 startup capacitor. Fan side measured 5uf , compressor side measured 1.5uf instead of 50uf. Found a replacement part on ebay for $20. Must be lot of them failing since lots of places were out of stock. Put the new one in today and it works great.

Filled up with alcohol free gas so it wouldn't go bad before I could use it up. First fill up since March. Probably will dump some stabilizer in too. We use it as a second vehicle so it does get a few miles put on most weeks.

Checked and aired up the tires, drove to propane dealer and filled the propane. Getting ready to take grandson to Texas next week for college. Praying that the weather will be cooler then than it is now-107 around Ft Worth today-not much fun when it's that hot.

Put a set of brake pads on the front, plus it needed one caliper and one hose. I didn't do it all in one day 'cause 22.5 tires get heave when your over 70 and it's hot.

Strange. I actually did something today. I started up the generator and set the charger to 14.3 volts and let it run for a half hour or so.
