It's always something with these toys. I had the banks power pack exhaust and headers installed since the MH had broken bolts in the exhaust manifold. BTW, the Banks is not cheap but best money I ever spent...it's like driving a New motorhome! Installed Koni shocks, also money well spent. Tuned it up with new plugs, wires, distributor cap, coil, pvc. 4 New Michelins on the drive axle. New kitchen faucet, upgraded power converter to progressive dynamics unit, and am trying to see why the bedroom reading lamps don't work. Oh, also removed the fuel tank and cleaned it out and had a shop re-weld the seams due to a leak. That was a pain, especially since it had about 45 gallons of fuel in it and an anti syphon device so couldn't syphon it out. Later I will need to address a leak in one of the rear hydraulic jacks but this is enough for now. Even with my belly aching....I love this MH and I actually enjoy tinkering with it.

Disassembled passenger side mirror on the phaeton. Needed due to broken post (head to arm connection). Replaced the entire frame inside. Reassembled.

Did it without breaking a glass and the power adjustment and heat still worked when done. (-:

Got temp plates on Friday, passed emissions on Friday as well with flying colors. Full clean and detail is ongoing. Rear, front and one side done with the buffer. Buffer is evil i might add. Next Saturday the girl will have new shoes on the rear. Oil and filter changed. Chassis lubed. All good so far.

I've started looking into replacing shocks and airbags. Also looking into steering stabilizers and track bars. Undecided at this point but research is everything

After looking at them all I decided on the Monroe RV shock and stabilizer. One thing that helped was a 30% discount plus free shipping.

They have to be better then the leaky one that was on it.

Realigned wiper arm, parked too low on the windshield. It's in the shop now to replace the GY 670's wi Michelin's - to finally fix the vibration (I hope), safe-t-steer going on as well. Already added Centrumatics. 5-star tune added last week - I popped a wheelie! <just kidding>. Shifts feel much more positive and it really settled down on cruise control on the limited test drive I took. Installed dash clips that were left off from the factory and I discovered while wiring the TPMS to get power - Thor sent me some clips. Installed an oxygenics shower head, screen door grab bar, and a sound bar on the lounge TV.

Trying to decide on a trac bar - getting a little push on the highway with trucks passing or stiff breezes...and maybe sumo springs.

I'm not sure if it will ever end. I started out with an entry level rig, if I keep going I may end up with a high end coach 🚍!
