Not sure if this counts, but I installed the Roadmaster base plates for our new 2014 F150 today. I banged a few knuckles and said a few curse words, but in the end, it all worked out. Installing the battery charge system, break away system, and the tail light system tomorrow. Wish me luck.

Went outside and fired up the genny for a while and watched tv. Until the rain caused the Kingdome to drop out.

Started it up and ran it for a while along with the generator.

Also installed some of my LED bulbs in the fixtures.

Are you doing the diode into the wiring or separate light assemblies in the tail lights?

I am using diodes into the wiring. I'm coming off of a 6 point plug on the front with the lighting and also with a 12V charge wire to a mini 12v charger near the battery.

Repaired a crack on the engine coolant overflow tank today on our a class. This Permatex fiberglass/plastic repair kit seemed to work great. Im curious has anyone ever used this for a gray or black tank repair? I have a tank that leaks when nearly full. I haven't really given it much thought to repair because I dump every 4 days. It hasn't caused much concern.. yet!

Most likely the vent stack connection is leaking. From what I have seen the tanks are drilled for the hole size then a female fitting with a threaded end is threaded into the tank wall (the vent stack is glued into the fitting like normal plumbing). Chassis flex eventually takes it toll on the sealent they used for the fitting.

If you can clean around the fitting and the tank well enough the tank repair stuff should do the trick. I have also seen roof repair tar pitch used to reseal the connection. Super sticky stuff.

Sprayed dry silicone (Blaster 11 oz. Dry Lube Silicone Lubricant-16-SL - The Home Depot) on bedroom slide 'flipping' seal at top underneath slide topper as well as along both slides. When coach was new the aft seal would not 'flip' when slide was put out and had to be done manually. One spray with silicone and I never had to manually 'flip' that seal again. Figured since its been right at 5 yrs I oughta do it again. Then we had a storm and I went back out afterwards to check for a leak and all was dry. Hoping to head out to just south of Miami in about a week. Getting cold here in the Yukon of Florida.
