Never ends
Indeed it doesn't ...FedEx delivered new base plate and wiring kit today for 2005 Honda Odyssey after we totaled 2000 Odyssey last month. Aux brake kit (Brakemaster 2nd vehicle) arrived a week ago is waiting in the garage. And picked up new gas spring/lift support this morning from local auto parts place for basement compartment door that would not stay open (ordered it last week when I bought the air and oil filter for the generator). Installed power lock actuator yesterday for one compartment door that was permanently locked. Sure am glad I have something to spend $$$$ on so I don't have to figure out what to do with all those retirement $$ we get!

Ordered up a Sunguard three piece windshield/drivers/entry window sunscreen set in black @ 94% heat block for $275 with wiper covers, storage bag and free shipping. Wanted a Magnashade setup but at $700 and plus more for the extras and shipping there was no way. I have an upholstery buddy who will sew in pockets and I know where to get the magnets so for 50 or so more I can have the same thing way cheaper.

Got a Strongback chair delivered yesterday. It is sturdy and provides good back support. If you are a wide load - it may be a little narrow but I'm no small lad and it works for me. Rated at 300 lbs and comes with a nice storage bag. Annie prefers a chair with a "head rest" which this does not have. Otherwise she likes it too.

Made for duals. It has a straight dual foot end with a flex hose and gauge that holds the pressure until you release it. Now I can use the same tool on all 6 wheels.

I am new to RV'ing and purchased our first MH last month. 2002, 30H Storm. Low mileage (10K) and lived in only 1 month, but in storage for most of its life and consequently had expected problems from long term storage.
I replaced 3 tires due to dry rot,$700. LOF,$50. replaced roof vents and had roof resealed, $243. Had Onan 4000 genset overhauled, $1,100. Replaced Voyager backup system, $580, and purchased a Winegard Anser Satellite Antenna, $424. Plus various hoses, cords, polish/wax and so forth, $200. I also paid $920 for tag and title. Purchased 2 DVD players, $78 and used a TV set and Direct TV receiver from our house. Have paid between $500-$600 for people to help me out. It has been one heck of an expensive month. Hope the Ole girl pays off in the long run with lots of happy days in the future.

Two Michelin XZE2, two HWH springs and an Onan 7500 inverter controller, enough bolts and an easy out to fix the Kwikee steps, some bolts and glue to reattach the front apron/generator cover a bush removed. We are wearing out the Visa card this month.
