My last mod :-)

It's time for some comedy after this week of announcements, so I thought I would show my last MOD. Well, it's my last MOD for a couple of months. I had knee surgery Wednesday, so I needed a lifted toilet. Typically, I don't use Gorilla tape in my mods.

I had a total replacement (second one) December 10th. Eight months from now you'll be climbing stairs like a normal person. Not leading with your good leg that is. I hope you have a speedy recovery. BTW prune juice is your friend because of the pain meds' "SIDE EFFECTS"

Best Wishes for a quick recovery, Don. Make sure your knee is totally healed before attacking any new projects:-)

Don- Hope your Oregon trip went off without any hitches and you had lots of fun.
Was this mod to your coach before or after your trip? Looks better than what I used after my hip replacement.

Can't believe he didn't add that cylinder!

Don, all kidding aside! Best of luck on a speedy recovery

One thing for sure! While in recovery mode, you will have plenty of time to "research" new projects & mod's for the coach!
Can't wait to see what happens when you're back to 100%

Good Luck, Take it Easy, & keep us posted on the upcoming projects!

Actually the tank behind the stool may be a plus - you know how we say "water, mo water and mo water" when keeping the holding tank free of problems. Is that tank the new 1Gal model or the older 1.5Gal?

Thanks everyone.....the knee is healing. Was hoping for a good experience as the other one gets done as soon as possible.

No big mods planned, but would like to get the coach back on the road.

I had both knees done on the same day. That potty setup wouldn't have been high enough for me.

Heal quickly and don't chicken out on the other one. I would have.

Heal quick Don and soon you'll be bounding up your coach steps! It was great to meet you at Tom Lindstroms when we picked up our coach last month.

I still have my Cummins adapter to run the PowerSpec software if you need it to make any more changes to your coach. I'd be happy to send it out to you if you need it. I have made several to my coach and it works great.
