Filled the house batteries and lubricated all the joints on the step assembly. DW finished making the windshield sun shield and I put sunscreen film on the side windows.

Just got our RV back from the repair center for large hole in roof repair. Once we started checking it out had to fix the following:

1. Front windshield rubber seal repaired.
2. Broken window shades.
3. Entry door step seal not installed properly.
4. electrical box loose from wall.
5. bay door misaligned.

Now everything is back to normal and operating properly.

Missed two things on our PDI on our new rig. A broken toilet bolt and a cracked upper awning bracket. Have had them both fixed for little to no money.

Amazing what you can miss even spending 90 minutes going over a coach prior to signing papers and driving away!

But boy do we love our residential fridge, full size 30" gas range and stacked washer/dryer!

Had the airbags replaced (after 20yrs I figured it was time) then did a chassis lube, installed crossfires, added tpms system, flushed and bleached the freshwater system. Next weekend I'll do the filters and we'll be ready for the first trip of the year.

As I am getting ready for our weekend trip I look at my load control panel and it has an odd message. It has the model, software version, and a message "no communication" on it. So I find the mfg, Precision Circuits on the web and give them a call. The fellow answers the phone and I tell him my problem. He says it sound like the data cable may have popped off. So I pull the panel by my breaker box and check. The data cable looks like a phone cord and I see it going into the box. It's hard to get to and I try reseating it. No change. Then I pull the monitor panel out in the front of the coach. I unplug the cable and plug it back in. Bingo! Back to working again. I think I might have accidentally unseated the cable at the breaker box a couple of weeks ago when I was pulling a coax cable. Everything worked for the rest of my trip, so I think it's fixed.

A few months ago we got our first MH after having TCs for the last 30+ years. It is a '93 Flair 26' long with 40k miles on it. I wanted a shorter MH to be able to go to most of the places we went with the TC.

At this point I've replaced the radiator, water pump, belts, hoses, AC compressor, converted to R134a refrigerant, and the coach batteries. I'm also working on many small leaks, replacing the refrigerator cooling unit, and plan to replace the brake master cyl. and hydroboost unit, possibly the rear brakes, and at least four tires. The tires have lots of tread but are weather cracked. I will also replace the outer skylight over the shower and install a better shower enclosure. The awning will also need some attention where the sun has damaged it at the top by the roller. Of course all lubricants will be changed, the chassis greased, and the front end has been aligned. I also have a backup camera to install so we can watch the toad. After that I think it will be ready for our upcoming 8k mile summer trip.

When we get back, if we still like it, I will probably replace the rubber roof along with a few other things. At that point we will probably keep it for many years.

I sure wish someone else had maintained it a little better.:-))

Leant the moho out this weekend and my boss said the fridge wasn't cooling properly. Looks like I'll be diving into that this weekend

Replaced the sky light, twice--being anal it wasn't as good as it should have been (how is it a perfectly square sky light that fits over a perfectly square hole in the roof can't be screwed down any way you put it--seems the pre-drilled screw holes have a reason). Took out the toilet and completely replaced all the parts and put it back and the sprayer didn't work (seems you have to cut a nipple off the fitting if you use a sprayer). Took my coach to a dealer for step recall, ac service and replace ac roof seals. On the way a friend caliper locked burnt out ABS. Had the coach a week due to parts screw ups. Back home, waiting on the ABS sensor but brake job done to front end (new rotors, calipers, pads) now the front ac not working. They put ac down on wiring loom and it arc'd in the connection from thermostat to ac. Back one works great, front one not getting ac power. Paid a local guy for 3 hrs to trouble shoot--he replaced the little connector for the thermostat wire and ac but that didn't correct problem. Dealer will have to do. Oh, I just had knee surgery last Friday--a month after foot surgery opposite foot. I need a little good juju to come my way!
