Installed two new smoke detectors, CO detector, 10# fire extinguisher and the mini-blinds behind the kitchen sink. All were to replace the OEM stuff from 1996.

A Vortex II to replace the Vortex I that I installed in the spring. It moves a lot of air, but the fan noise is too much as the bathroom is next to the bedroom. With the multi-speed II, we can enjoy the quiet. Will move the Vortex I to the living room (if I can get wiring to it) to use for quick hot air removal or run at night when dry camping in warm weather.

I just arrived at the Spartan Chassis factory we are getting a front end alignment, the 44 point check to see if we need brakes or tie rod ends, etc done. The 4 corner weighing, wanting to know if our tire pressures are right, that has always been an issue.

But hubby decided even though we have paid to have some of this stuff done at various dealerships he doesn't think it has been.

So we are getting the hydraulic fluids and filter, dryer filter, water filter,
differential oil, changed, the hub oil vacuumed out and changed, new fuel filters. And we paid for it to be done, but hubby wonders, the transmission fluid and filter changed.

They are checking brakes, air leveling and seeing if they can calibrate the new odometer we had put in that only does 1/4 mile for each and get the speedometer working again. Also the generator hour meter though we have one on the generator and we think its the oil gauge for either the tranny or genny, not sure which. One of the so called professional places we went clamped the rattling tail pipe on the generator to the frame instead of replacing the bracket. It works but when he wants to pull
the genny out he has to take the U bracket off.

Yes, we know several thousand dollars, but we think it will be done right this time or we sure hope so. I have never seen so many poor mechanics or out right thieves in an industry. They should be regulated in some manner.

So we will be spending a small fortune on a very old motorhome.

There is some comfort in knowing your RV and what's been done. I know it costs to get there. I'm still working towards feeling like that.

I just bought some light lenses to replace cracked and fogged exterior light lenses, new locking engine compartment latches and two "test" led bulbs for the interior fixtures. If they are bright enough I'll replace all the interior bulbs with them

I added a sealed PWM DC motor speed control to mine. Slow it down a little and it is quiet. Got the PWM from Amazon for $12.

So you have an outside shower? Do you have a winterizing draw tube for anti-freeze?
The likely answer to both is yes, and you could have saved $35 and allot of hassle.
