Today I washed the facing of the tires and sprayed it with some stuff to make them look bright and nice. I also polished my rims and covers.

Getting ready for our summer vacation which will take us out of the stick house for most of the rest of the year.

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)

Just starting my second year of ownership and not really sure of the maintenance history. A little more confidence this year of doing things myself vs. paying to have it done. so the list getting ready for my racing season travel:
Oil change and filter, 5w40 T6 syn
Clean the CAC unit from motor side (vary dirty)
extended slobber tube to rear stone guard and a plastic catch bottle
Replaced oil in Diff (Mobile Delvac 75w90 syn
Replaced oil in front hubs (was vary dirty 75w 90 syn)
Greased chassis
Replaced Air dryer filter(s)
Fuel filter(s)

Planning on doing the trans filters to upgrade to full syn

Once I finish the drive train, going to replace the commode with a high rise model.

We had the onan genset generator rebuilt piece by peace- had we known this a month ago, we would have just gotten a new one, but mechanic kept saying " this is a good one! This part will do the trick!"- tons of new parts later and we have a working generator & a huge dent in our trip funds!
We also had all chassis fluids changed, and re-sanitized the tanks & filled propane tank.
We now need to find out why a "utilities" toggle switch stays lit all the time ( that is a new thing) & why our top left side running light won't cone on. Fun time!

Replaced three out of four rear tires.... Two along side of the road in West Texas when the outside duelly blew(when I looked at the inside.. I told the road service guys too bring two) and one at Les Schwab in Denver as a precaution because it was just as old as the two I'd just replaced on the road. The forth was replaced in Montana last fall.

Now all my tires are less than two years old

Over the last several days I've polished two wheels to a chrome finish and cleaned the engine service bay..... two more wheels to go
If it ain't one thing, Its something more Expensive

Replaced the rear shocks today. Did the front shocks and stabilizer damper last week. Was going to just do the fronts but decided to replace the rears also. Happy that I did as they were shot. The new shocks (Monroe RV ) Look more stout then the originals.

I replaced the oil cooler gaskets and seals on my CAT 3126. If you're looking to do something that requires folding your arms and body in ways that aren't humanly possible, I suggest trying it.
On a good note, it no longer hemorrhages oil. 5 gallons of oil from South Carolina to Chicago was my last adventure.
Good times
