I think we all think that way. I don't think the career much matters. 😀

It's raining, what to do??

Good time to go outside with a bucket and soap and lather up the outside of the coach. You are getting a "free deionized water rinse."

So, did you crawl down into the hatch to stand on the engine? I can't reach my engine (and then only a little part of it) unless I hang by my waist (almost hanging, I can actually keep my knees just barely on the ground).

You need a bigger engine so you don't have to reach as far!

I investigated a swap but was told it wasn't possible. Not the answer I wanted as we really like this coach but with only 850 lb/ft of torque I could use some more!

You must be in Texas. Our yard went from a very wet spring season and very green to large cracks in the yard and starting to get them on the exterior brick.

That's pretty much how I did it. With an old tooth brush. Pretty much cleaned every thing I could reach. Don't leave purple stuff on too long as it has some acid like properties in it I think. Rubber seals and things like that may not like it. Just my thought. Put a fan on it when done and waited couple days and cranked her right up. She was screaming "Thank you" !!!
