One new 1/2" fender washer. Used it to do a temporary repair on a failing inboard roller on the rear rail of the slide (in the basement area).

Pin had slipped, washer (plastic) broke and fell out making the roller tilt and bind. Slide in, new washer (steel) in, pin back in place and roller setting level now. Roller worked well as the slide went back out.

Will order a new roller assembly for that one, after I check out the front rail (which is NOT in the basement).

BTW, issues with slide going in and out (without help) on our trip, plus a barely noticeable grinding/scraping noise at the rear of the slide led me to this problem. This was the first chance I had to check it out.

Got Mud Flaps today to repair some of the damage from (I suspect) a tire blowout! Had to hang it from top of tire compartment as regular bracket is bent and twisted beyond use. Just finished repairing the wet compartment, plastic one, and insulating that one. Will have to cut off and rebuild the one behind the tires when we get back home. Waiting on flooring guy to get new installed so we can hit the road for the First Time! Tomorrow will mount the horsetail under the back end to help protect our new-to-us toad, a Red 2008 Sebring Hardtop convertible, white leather inside. Getting Excited!!!

Sorry for the delay in responding, I was gone for the holidays and didn't check in. We got them from here: Essential Products RV & Marine - EZE RV Gutters a little cheaper than we could find in other places. Hopefully it will warm up a little soon and we can get them installed. Very fast shipping.

Residential faucets for kitchen and bathroom sinks. Surprised that the water pressure increased. The stock faucets must have had more restriction.

7 pieces of foam pipe insulation and a 40' heat tape.
Wrapped water and drain hoses (macerator) with aluminum foil, heat tape tied to hoses and foam insulation around all.
Ready for more cold nights without frozen lines!

If I may ask,

I have been wanting one of those. I have a 3x5 attached to the back ladder with only a 4 ft pole.
Did you get the type you drive on a pad? or the kind that attache's to the ladder.?
I really wonder what that will do to the ladder/mounts/fiberglass in higher winds.
I presume that you would need to take it down if you know what the winds are going to be.
Thank-you
&
Thank-you for your service to our Country,
Tim

I got it at camping world. It mounts to the ladder
The mount is called a buddy pole. The pole itself is fiberglass and pretty light. It also collapse's down to 4 ft. There are probably 10 people at this beach campground with the same thing. Most of them have two 3x5' flags on there's and the wind has been around 8-20 mph. No failures that I've seen. The mounts are pretty darn sturdy, and I haven't seen any movement on the ladder yet.

I love it. I ordered a USCG Retired flag yesterday, and I bought a solar powered light that will also mount on the top of the ladder.

FWIW at Ocean Lakes for last years National Rally I saw one break in half due to winds around 15 knots. So, they will self destruct and it wasn't a super large flag. Next door neighbor took it down so it wouldn't damage the back of the guys new Dutch Star!

Well your supposed to take it down in inclement wx. There not meant to be up during high winds. On the other hand the flag poles around here, (like the one I bought) are doing well im the constant winds
Some of them are bent over 3 feet, and still working. No pole is indestructable.
