I need to replace mine and keep the old one as a spare. Or buy a new one and just have it ready to swap I guess

One of my wife's tactics for getting me to buy her a new mh included "You won't have to do as much maintenance with a new one".

Now the daughter and her husband own our old Bounder and they want to take it on their first vacation trip in a few weeks. The husband is eager to help and learn about their new toy but he is very busy with work at present.
So the guy with less maintenance to tackle is currently handling a complete brake job, which included separating the front hubs from the rotors for new replacement rotors. This will be immediately followed with the task of removing the radiator for a recore. After that is complete I will attend to the replacement of a leaking rear seal on the transmission and will wrap it up with a bevy of small repair items.
Then I will return the Flounder so the daughter can build her nest inside before vacation.

A good RV tech should get at least 40 - 45 an hour. Perhaps a family discount of 10% is in order. LOL.

Thanks for the chuckle iamblum and Gordon. Its not all bad because the mh work gives me a break from the job of rebuilding the entire roof on my brothers house. I have been rebuilding the roof in sections the past couple summers.
Dad was prophetic about the house. He said, "Your brother will inherit the house and you will end up maintaining it".

This past week I lubed the chassis and adjusted the ride height. Made ramps like what a poster suggested, 2x12 built up for 6" rise. Mine are 4' long and the 6 nicely support the coach with the extra height that I can slide around under the coach on a creeper even with the air suspension dumped. I checked to make sure before I started on the suspension. Last week added the TPMS.

Sewer hose storage complete. I didn't like all those hoses bundled in my compartment. I saw something like this posted by C.B. on a post dated 2011.
Thought it was a great idea.

Changed oil and filters.
Greased the zerk fittings
Watered the batteries.
Installed 2 12v outlets on the center console.
Ordered Rejex for the front cap.
Reglued the end seals on the full wall slide.
Looked into putting a spare tire up in the rear chassis area, not sure how to secure it.

Tracking down a leak today and found a broken rear shock attachment

Sooo..... I'll be ordering a pair of Bilsteins at $100 each


Like I always say.... If it ain't one thing... its something more expensive

And... I never found the leak

Shouldn't the title read, "What Haven't You Done....". I'm so tired, but I let everything catch up with me. At least when/if we sell it, I can honestly say it needs nothing!

Just finished making some repairs to the condenser fins on my main A/C unit

Checked the discharge pressure before & after repair.
70 psig difference.
This equals no more trips on High Head Pressure
Lower Head pressure = Lower Operating Cost
And much easier on the system.

But it took me 2 hours to repair the aluminum fins, hence the before picture it was daylight and the after picture was night time.....hahaha!

^^^^^ Nice. Wife was up there and said the fins were looking bad. I even went to Harbor Freight, but forgot to grab the radiator comb. Congrats.
