Not for the camper exactly, but the tow vehicle got a piping hot Banks Powerpak kit. I haven't towed with it yet but it runs like she's running from the devil himself. I'll pull the 5er soon as I can and report back.

The installation was clean and pretty easy.

Just bought a rim for the unmounted spare tire we've been carrying around. I know it's not very exotic or cool but we like to get off the beaten path and sure feel better carrying a mounted spare. Even if it does weigh 115 lbs.

We've been getting ready for a big trip out west, so I'm really pimping out the Minnie:

1. 12' LED light strip to mount under awning.
2. Andersen levelers.
3. Wireless backup camera system
4. Maxx Air MaxxFan vent system...ordered it months ago, but waiting for decent weather to install.
5. And, DW wants a couple of shelves added to storage compartment in bathroom!
6. New Maxxis tires were installed a couple of weeks ago!

Just got back from a day and a half weekend jaunt to an RV park on the Columbia River.
On the way home we discussed our stock 19in TV and ordered a 24in when we got back. (It's a small TT and 24 is about max for the space.)

Also considering a digital thermostat.

Well, in the previous posts I've made, I told about the saga of the handling issues of my F-53 chassis, and all the others too.


Last week, I got the front air bags and wireless compressor installed, and they helped a bunch. But, it still had the "tail wag the dog" syndrome. I ordered a Trac-Bar for the rear end. Easy to install, but you better have the right big tools to install it. I do have them, so I got it installed in just over an hour.


That was Thur evening, and Fri morning, early, we struck out for the dunes, a few hours away. It handled like a dream in comparison to what it was before.


Next, it might be on the chopping block, and upgrade to a diesel pusher. I really like American coaches.......

I bought a 5 year old spare tire and wheel at a local salvage yard for $200.00. They took it off a wrecked utility company truck.

Had to buy a new rim at a cost of around $180. Could not find a used one. We're in brevard county in Florida so went to Glenn's Tire in Melbourne and he ordered one for us. They do great tire and alignment work by the way.
And yes, this is a 19.5
