What fun is that !!!

Rofl! My wife did the same thing to me! She said it makes her nervous. I found out after 42 years that everything makes her nervous. What matters is to what degree.

My wife is the same way. She will say we came camping to relax and you are working on the motorhome. To me that is relaxing. Do not have the time to do it when at home. She will sew at home and while camping. That's her relaxation.

All you are doing is making this "your" coach. I'm sure you've thought these things out before buying them and this is what will make you happy. Enjoy the fruit of your labor, and keep us informed.

I might have gone overboard

johnnya, congratulations on your new "personalized" Class A!
I'm virtually always tinkering on our MH at home AND on the road. There's endless opportunity for major to minor mods, adjustments, maintenance, fine-tuning, etc, etc. It seems there's inevitably another project lurking around the corner. A source of relaxation, entertainment and sense of accomplishment with occasional frustration thrown in to keep us on our toes. Although not all will agree, puttering is part of RV ownership and lifestyle IMO. After all, my DW refers to our coach as "Hugh's Baby"
Enjoy your new RV and the mods - and do keep us posted! We only go around once...

Engine noise and heat

We bought a 2014 Bounder 35K in July and on our first trip besides engine noise the dog house was uncomfortably hot. My dog house was not carpeted which Fleetwood says the built a few that way. I have installed a fatmat hood liner to the underside of the dog house and I am planning on installing a leather look insulation on the top side of the engine cover. I want to insure the mat will not come free from the cover before I install the top insulating material. I was wondering how most people hold the the underside insulation in place besides the adhesive. I don't want it to fall down on the engine. I would appreciate any comments.

I have posted pics and data on insulating the underside of the dog house. If you cant retrieve it I will post again. (Pics of the Vette? Sold mine and kept the Viper)

I found that the CHF, a front end alignment and 85-90 psi in the tires turned my GT into a one handed dream ride.

Not all boats are worse. I've owned my 1994 C-Dory 22 Classic for 15 years and all I do is add gas and oil to the 2 stroke bullet proof Yamaha outboard.

I've spent a lot more on the RV, for sure!

Cheers!

I agree, if I could I would not have went to the pusher!!

I love spending money to upgrade the MH. Funny thing is that I recently put a new roof on my house as well as had some painting done and felt nothing special but thoroughly enjoyed replacing my rear sway bar bushings on the MH! Funny things these motorhomes...
