What have you fixed, repaired or maintained lately"

As we all know these beasts are worse than the kids or the DW and need lots of attention. Seems like it's always asking me to bring it home for the weekend to "give" it some tlc. So I replaced the flush valve on the thereford Aqua magic IV, replaced the Kwikee step controller, 3 12 volt house batteries, circuit board for the Atwood water heater and next is replacing the slide topper material. Still need to research a bit more before doing that 1. What have you don't lately?

Lol. Priorities are a must. I must add the only reason I was able to do any of these things is because of the info and help I received on this forum. Always start here and then watch you tube videos until I feel confident

Replaced/upgraded on board Thomas electric auxiliary air compressor with much improved (and louder &#128528 Vlair 12v compressor.
Replaced two original dimmers (overheating/fire hazard) with touchpad dimmers 👍🏻.
Replaced/fabricated new outer plexiglass headlight lenses 👍🏻.
Replaced toilet seat and lid with soft close unit. No more occasional startling toilet lid slam if it gets left up while driving.
Fixed faulty turn signal assembly in steering column.

All in a good day's work. I keep a Google Task List on my phone with everything I would either like to do or needs to be done. Only 74 items left to be completed 🙄. Good thing I enjoy working on this coach.

Ugh, not what I've done. What I need to do. Replace air filter, drain and flush coolant for MH and generator, change cartridge on air dryer, change transmission filters and wash and wax. Did I say ugh? 😕

No way. If DH is promoting this idea, then that is also a problem...

Well..I "had fixed" the exhaust manifold, the exhaust-brake tube, a serious fuel leak and the toad brake pump all in one gulp at the shop. Remaining is the drippy water drain discovered at the shop and the dead dash air.

Isn't that enough?

Installed a new slide out motor on the Galley slide. Almost thought I'd bit of more than I could chew but all's good.

Hmmm... let's see. Lately?

Washed and waxed.
Dicor'd the roof (just days before a torrential rainstorm, I might add).
Replaced vent toppers some city trees really didn't like.
Replaced kitchen sink faucet.
Replaced both bathroom sink faucets.
Painted all the ugly brass fixtures to silver/grey.

February we fixed a minor generator issue and a major Hydro Hot issue. Next week is oil change. June is new tires on the steers, new shocks, alignment and brake check. MIGHT install a Safe-T-Plus.

It's been a busy 2016 so far

I just had the tran service done, and cleaned the coach. Now all thats left is 4 new 6v batteries for the house and we are ready.

So far in 2016 I have added 300 watts of solar, oil change on genset and engine, added balance rings, cleaned up some 'fixes' from the previous owner, lubed the chassis, fixed the screens the kids broke, fixed the kids bedroom door they broke, I'm sure there are other things and the kids will break something else with the first use in a couple of weeks. Almost seems like a full time job with the up keep and the kids.
