I really like what you did to the kitchen looks fantastic, thinking about the same.

Going to start to winterize but have to get propane first.

Oil, lube, and battery service. After a wash, will cover until February, and then head south.

Camping World still has their 25% discount Tuesday/Wednesdays. I paid $2.89 last week, so prices are dropping.

What have I done to my MH

Washed the roof and washed rest of the motorhome.

Now I am in the process of waxing the beast. Very time consuming.

But I got all winter......

Added Road Master steering stabilizer

I just added the steering stabilizer to my 2003 Workhorse chassis Winnebago Adventurer. I held off for a long time as the unit always handled and rode well. Last year after fighting constant quartering winds I decided to bite the bullet. Wow what a difference. Even better handling and the added safety in the event of a front tire blow out. http://www.irv2.com/forums/images/smilies/dance.gif

I just had the privilege of replacing the 14 year old toilet in our Class A. The valve would stick and continue to fill the bowl, resulting in water on the floor!

It must be easy to install those when being built.

The water connection was on the opposite side of the new Dometic 310 toilet I installed. The manufacturer used a very hard PEX connection directly to the back of the old toilet.

Thank goodness for the PEX type connectors that are available at the big box hardware stores. I connected the toilet with a braided SS flexible hose too, like you would use in your house.

The space where the supply line runs is also the space for a heater vent hose, copper lines, PEX lines for the shower, and 5 Romex electrical wires. Careful cutting the toilet supply line!

Still need to finish the panel that covers all the space, but I will get that done this afternoon.

We have a 2006 Coachmen Cross Country Sports Coach we bought it new in August of 2005 so she has been with us for awhile. Last year we updated the tv's and put down new flooring we used the plastic type that looks like hard wood, had some cushions for the dinette freshened up and this summer we swapped out the old tracvision in motion dish for a new Winegard Travler. This past week we did a color match front wrap and wrapped the roll over painted area of the roof (color match vinyl is perfect for this) next we will be swapping all exterior lights over to LED's and putting 2 fresh steer tires on, safe T plus, new windshield molding (had to freshen that up) I will post more pics soon but I must say if anybody is looking to have paint work done check into color match vinyl for certain areas it is definitely a great choice. I must say for us it was simple as we do that type of work for a living.

Installed the Thor refrigerator/freezer door latch to rid ourselves of the stupid screw/knob device that was such a pain to install or take out!
