Bit the bullet and bought a new fresh water tank, hubby tried mending the old one twice. It might have worked to have it plastic welded. However, he is home only a short time and trying to find someone taking it, getting it back in and things we just ordered new. Hope it gets here in time.

Fleetwood has been great, they have gotten all kinds of items for my 1992 American Eagle. The first thing when we bought it was all new skylights, the old ones were rotten, had to have the big one made, they have been more then helpful in the parts department.

Another was Fantastic Fan, they sent new covers for them at no cost, all that old plastic I'm sure were the originals. Good service.

Other items like a new folding stove top cover I got from ebay pretty cheap, the stainless one was rusted., must have not really been stainless, replaced with a painted one.

brought the 5er in for service and had it blocked. With the new F350 it needed to be a bit higher.

That's a great item. I couldn't find it under "sofa arm table" search. Do you know who makes it?

I put some sound deadener under the front half of our RV. It comes on a roll. I cut it in short strips, raised the RV as high as I could, crawled under it and spent the morning pealing the backing off and sticking this stuff on the floor and engine housing. It's easy to stick on. The hard part was reaching around things like mufflers, drive shaft, etc. The dirt has to be wiped off so the Fatmat will stick.

I took it for a short spin today. It's amazing how quiet it is inside now. No road noise at all. I was hoping for a little bit of improvement but all I can say is wow! Money well spent.
Fatmat eXtreme Sound Dampening Products for Automotive
I bought it on Amazon. Search for FatMat 50 Sq Ft x 80 mil Thick Self-Adhesive RattleTrap Sound Deadener Bulk Pack w/Install Kit

I also installed the 5 Star Tuning kit http://www.5startuning.com/. The shifting is now like it should be. Nice and smooth. I was very pleased with that update also. Mike at 5 Star was very helpful.

And then there were the four 6-volt Trojan T-105 batteries from http://www.atbatt.com/ to replace the one 12-volt house battery. While doing that I put in a BatteryMINDer.

A 20 ton Hydraulic Jack to use as A stabler in the rear end of MH. Going to get a 12 ton for the front end next.
No Jack system and this way works great so far.

Tim. Does your coach have air brakes? They make regular hydraulic jacks that are manual and or air operated. I have two 20 ton ones and two 12 ton ones that I use in my business. All four are air operated. They work great. Might be able to operate them off a small air tank too ??

Weldex rearview monitor gave up, so I bought and installed a Rosco Backup Camera Vision System. The toughest part was running the new cable. So far really pleased with it. Very clear and sharp 7" color monitor.

I wished it had one, but no air. We will be going full time next Fall. I'll be looking for a smaller Air compressor then not much storage space on the old gal, I have a nice one in the garage but that won't be coming with us unfortunately. Great Idea though, Thanks, Tim

Tim. I'll try to attack a picture of the air powered jack. Not good with pictures. Ha. Russell

Four 22.5 Michelins on the rear with new solid valve stems. The stems have some kind of metal dust covers that can be 'aired' thru...we'll see how that works out.

Anyway, the new tires/wheels come off at Josam's in Orlando tomorrow - getting the two rear brake rotors replaced...they have some bad cracks in them. The fun never stops.
