I bought new tires for the camper. I bought Tow masters 8 ply I have read mixed reviews on these China Bombs but I put them my last TT and didn't have any problems so maybe I'll be ok with them because I drive 60-63 mph not 70-75 mph and I check tire pressure before every trip and heading home I'm going to look at a TPM at CW today.

Residential refer that has turned into a comedy or nightmare - depending on our mood. Word to the wise...plug in the refer BEFORE you install it in the MH to make sure it works. Who would've thought a brand new refer would have a sealed system leak? The compressor works, just no cooling. We decided on a Frigidaire even though we knew they won't honor the warranty if installed in an RV. We wanted a small, apartment sized refer, and Samsung doesn't make one that small. From what I've read, Samsung is the only one who'll honor the warranty if installed in an RV. The refer only cost $491.00, so we thought if it goes out in a year or two, so what. We never dreamed it wouldn't work from the get go. After some back-and-forth with our local Famous Tate where we bought it, they're going to swap out a new fridge for us. So, CHECK OUT YOUR FRIDGE BEFORE INSTALLING IT!

Nothing major.. Replaced the house battery it was dead when we bought it. Got a energizer 29 from Sams. Replaced the electric step motor.. A 86 Taurus drivers side window motor fit perfectly and got it at Autozone. Also bought new side clips and tire covers.

A new Dometic fridge. The cooling unit on the original one died (sulfur powder round the base of the flue). New one, with installation, was just shy of $1800.

Some Duck Waterproofing Tape as a temporary fix to a leaking skylight. If it works, may be an extended "Temporary"...

Hmm. I was looking at the photos. The new lights appear to be smaller and it looks like he re-did the fiberglass and paint around them. Looks better than new!
