Living room slide inoperative. Studied schematics. Study pointed to the HWH Clamp Control box. Ordered box from HWH. Replaced box. Slides work OK now.

Life is good.

Washed.
Made new wood corner posts for next to bed cuz originals were beat up by previous owner.
Hinged the cabinet cover for inside access to water heater (had been screwed on by factory).
Fixed boo-boo on rear corner where DW backed in to a stop sign (don't ask).
Gave fridge a good cleaning.
In process of making a rear track bar.

So far this spring; removed old tube TV last year, and finally got around to installing new flat screen, Oil & Filter Change, cleaned awning, changed oil in generator, wiper blades, installed transmission temp gauge, Filled up with gas before prices headed back up. found some rust on the storage bins frames, cleaned up and painted.
Still to do; change transmission fluid and filter, lube all the points under MH, find,order, and replace fender skirts, "old ones falling apart" Clean, clean and wax.
first trip is coming up in 3 weeks.

Where to start

Well we bought our coach in November and just finished our 2500 mile maiden voyage a couple of weeks ago.
Removed the old CRT in the dash and made an oak cabinet to replace it. Flat screen already installed. Also installed new flat screen in bedroom. Replaced all fluids and filters, new Koni shocks all around. New steering stabilizer shock, new airbags. Lubed all points under MH. New plugs and all new filters. Had brakes inspected and fluid replaced. Replaced kitchen faucet and fixed plumbing leaks. Installed new Roadmate 9145LMS.

Now...since the first trip:
Repaired water connection for city water (still need to replace the fitting for assurance). Now need to find and repair a leak in the shower drain (I think) and probably patch a spot in the floor from. Get the front wheel bearings repacked, front end alignment and tires balanced. Replace A/C gaskets. Recoat EPDM roof and caulk everywhere (roof and body) Install fan in refer to even out cooling or possibly replace temperature controller. Cools too well with fridge at 20 degrees and freezer at 0. Recharge dash ac. Fix a couple of light switches inside. Install an inverter as this coach never had one from the factory. That should keep me busy until the next trip for the July 4th holiday! I love the life style so far but man, starting out with a fixer upper has kept me hopping.

Currently I am doing a conversion from the original old tv to a 32" LCD model.

If anyone else has done this already, and has some tips/tricks I am interested.

Also I am trying to find/fix a nasty oil leak (not fun)

Trying to trouble shoot my CO detector.
Tested last month = working
Tested this month = NOT working.

Maybe better to just buy a portable unit and install ???

If you install an off the shelf one make sure the old one wasn't tied to the propane tank. Because some will turn off the gas.

I think that my coach originally had a combo co2/smoke detector that was hardwired into the 12v. I now have a battery powered seperate smoke detector and co2 detectors mounted in seperate locations. Not sure why but this is how it was when we bought it.

Hmm. Does it count as doing something if you can't get it done ? DH called Frigidare for service on fridge in 2016 Forest River Berkshire. Frigidare cannot dispatch service because the item is not where you registered it from!! They did offer to sell us an extended warranty!? Our first trip since purchase last Sept & waiting for the real fun to begin . Lol
