I manage a band and got the wrap company to wrap my rv for free in trade if keeping the name on the side for a year.

Rexlaw, beautiful job! But you're wrong about Bret Michaels-- he wouldn't recognize good, tasteful work if he tripped over it.

Nicely done!

Air bags and new radio

Thinking of some DYI projects. Replacing the floors I think we can do with no problems. I am thinking that I might want a small ceiling fan in the bedroom. That has me stumped. Had anyone put in a ceiling fan? TIA.

Just replaced the toilet in our 2006 Winnie Voyage.

The step-flush on the old toilet had a cable from the step to the flush mechanism. The keeper for the cable broke and so it couldn't be flushed. The keeper was an unbelievably puny piece of plastic.

After weighing the problems of finding the correct part while traveling, we just opted for a new toilet. This time it has the side-mounted pedal that looks a bit more rugged and is definitely easier to use than the front pedal was.

Not an exciting rehab - but a very important one. And Thetford is having a $25 rebate right now!

Got the HydroHot repaired. The tech said that the clutch between the blower motor and the blower fan shattered jamming the motor. It runs just fine now.

Since I've owned this MH in the last 1.5 years, I've done a few things by myself.

You can find most of them here:
