Top of the cliff or the bottom? Just curious.

Bought two CW vent covers at the Berkley, MA grand opening. With coupons & discounts got both for $20. Winnebago is covered for the winter. I will install them in the spring.

TV's & New Cabinetry & Maintenance....lots of maintenace!!

Last month we purchased 6 new Michelins for the coach....as well as 8 new AGM house batteries......we just completed the TS X bracing at Precision Paint....and after quite a lot of chassis maintenance at Spartan in Michigan, we are en route back to Bremen, IN and Precision Paint for updated LED TV's and some cabinetry changes in the coach. We can't say enough good things about Paul Conley and his crew at Precision Paint!!!
We should be in very good shape for our winter sojourns after all this work!!

I got this craftsman air compressor plus some hose and quick connect fittings.Craftsman 1.5 Gallon Portable Air Compressor with Hose and 8PC Accessory Kit Sold by Sears Sears Item# 00915309000 | Model# 15309 . I read that others were pleased with it for airing up tires and most of reviews were good . I also bought a few tools to check sg and maintain batteries. I am not sure you ever stop spending money on these things,huh.

King Pin tripod that has individual ratcheting legs to take the dance out of the 5th wheel when the Splendide runs, prior to the tripod my recliner at the opposite end of the trailer would feel like a vibrating seat whenever the damned thing would spin out a load.

Prior to that, got two vent shrouds for the roof vents so the fans could be used in the bathroom during rain, a couple pairs of the giant deflapper clamps for awnings from camco.

Hmmm, that does make a BIG difference. We are tucked in at the bottom, making reception from the north impossible.

Three new bolts to replace the broken ones holding up the slide, they had sheared off. Had to have the work done by pros, old bolts had to be drilled out and there was very little room to operate. Had the seam on the top of the slide sealed at the same time. $800 plus, ouch!
