2 new Equalizer rams for the front slide.

NOTE: never let somebody activate hydraulic slides and just go half way before retracting them...several times.

Better yet, don't let potential buyers push any buttons until you say it's ok.

And yes, this is a 19.5
Thanks Rob!

Driver side mirror rebuild from Ramco Engineering for my Tiffin Allegro Bay. Broke the pivot ball structure when it caught on a limb while backing up the MH. Black Gorilla Tape held it in place for the trip we were beginning (about two weeks). A new mirror from Tiffin was $894 (the whole assembly including the arm) and they had 2 in stock. Ramco, the original manufacturer does not make this model anymore. Could have bought different style heads that fits the arms for about $390 ea. Rebuild for the head is $125 plus shipping. I had the rebuild done by Ramco.

Sorry for the long post, but I know I'm not the only one that has run into this and I thought the info might be helpful.

BTW... I couldn't even get Camping World Chattanooga to return my calls.

I just bought half a dump truck of stones for my storage spot. The storage yard I use is very convenient but my spot is mostly dirt and sand. Every time it eains I get mud spots from the splatter off the ground and I'm always tracking dirt in. So I had stones dumped on the site and now I have a much nicer place to park.

Gonna be tough to take those with me if I ever sell the MH or move to another storage site.

Cat engine valves adjusted, they also found the bolt for water pump tensioner bracket busted and fixed that. Good to roll :-D

I broke one of mine on a narrow tollbooth. I was able to remove it, drill out the ball and glue in a 1/2 price of pipe. I also cross-pinned it just incase the epoxy weakened over time. 2 years later and still going strong. I did however buy a replacement mirror just incase I broke one again far from home.

Just added a solar light under the outside door handrail to light the steps. Attached with heavy duty hook and loop strips. Works great and stays on while towing. Got the light at Bed Bath and Beyond for $4.

Long time fan of brass over plastic, iron, and galvanized. Went to brass plugs long ago, then with latest RV, went to the brass plug with the pet cock adapter so that when I have to drain, it's just a mild twist and let 'er drain.

Just ordered Firestone Ride Rite air bags for rear of Winnebago. Seems to ride unlevel and want to correct that.
Also ordered new door entry handle complete with locks and keys as the old one was having issue.
