What product should be used to coat the fiberglass roof? Mine needs to be done.

Well,
For those of you that may need replacement mud flaps, the ones behind the duals, not the long-full length one, I just did it today. For the life of me, I could not find them in the Winne parts catalog. So, I called a few auto parts stores in my area. Napa was the winner here. They had several different flaps I could choose from.

I ended up choosing the cheapest ones they had. They are good quality rubber and are, 24" x 24" and don't have any logo or name on them. They are about 1/4" thick with some ribbing here and there for structural strength.

But, my flaps ( maybe as well as many of yours out there in RV land) are only 23.5" wide by 12" long. So, I could have purchased one single flap and cut two out of it. But, based on the design of them, I would have ended up with one that had rounded corners at the bottom and one with square corners, not good.

So, for a measly $26 for the two of them total, I got two. I cut the bottom half to be used for the flaps. The reason I used the bottom half is because the corners were already rounded. I had gasket hole punches from Harbor Freight already so, punching those holes in that rubber, was a piece of cake.

It's all done and, they look great. So, if anyone has some sad looking mud flaps or, they're completely gone or aged, check your local Napa store.

Rsponsford,
Just wondering, why do you think you need to coat a fiberglass roof? Most of us with fiberglass roofs just wash them and, put an occasional coat of wax on them. Just wondering.

Rsponsford, I used GACO Roof, after the old roof started flaking/ chipping on my 2002. Great stuff. Coats and seals. Used a short nap roller because it's so thick and like glue. Don't think I'll ever have to do it again. Only 2 gallons for 40'...

Removed and cleaned the MAF sensor, and cleared the code to turn off the check engine light. Plan on taking it out for a drive over the weekend to see if that solved the problem. If not then I guess it's time for a new MAF. It didn't LOOK dirty, but I don't know how much (or how little) crud it takes to cause it to throw a code.

Thanks to Roger and everyone in the Workhorse Chassis forum I was able to replace the Rotten Green Switch and Light Switch on my Autopark Brake on my 2000 Winnebago Adventurer 32V.

The frame shown is for mock up purposes only. I am in the process of building the real one out of Cherry wood which will be stained to matching the existing cabinet.

While getting ready for our first trip with our new to us MH she was loaded up and ready to go in the morning. Ahh a month in the Florida Keys.

So I thought i'd spray some silicone on the slide rails before i brought them back in. I notice something strange just inside the right front slide. My flashlight and a magnetic thingy rod and out comes a washer, lock washer and 3/8 nut. Oh no whats broke now before our maiden voyage. Upon further investigation i see where at the end of the slide rail where it attaches to the slide one bolt is missing it's nut, washer and lock washer and one is missing bolt and everything and the rest are extremely loose.

I checked all the rest and got at least 3 to 4 complete turns on the nuts for the remaining. Boy does that slide run smooth now.

Later on i'll remove the nuts and put some blue lock tight on em.

DW returned as i was wrenching em and thought oh no what now.

All is good for now
