Well, went and did the PDI today, the dealership is storing the rig for me until I get a space. So, I can honestly say, the last thingS I bought was...... 20ft dump hose, 25 ft water hose, 90 degree water valve, water filter, 30 amp surge protector, and some bug screens. Next will be steering stabilizer.

Bought over 30 LED's so far and have about 30 to go for just the overhead lights, next will be the sconces.
Problem with the LED's is that I have to remove the old reflector and glue the socket back in every one so it's taking a while.

They say I need to replace my roof! $6,800. I feel two soft spots about the size of an Apple, one spot that size where the skin has a bubble. A few very small cracks in the seams. It is a Brite-tec EPTM rubber roof.

Been using it for over a decade!

I'll also recommend that you (after emptying) charge your tank with 3 full bowls of water. Fill the bowl another 3/4 full and add a cup or two (powder) of water softener. Mix with a bowl brush and flush!

An impeller (with gasket) for my Sani-con. Oh, boy!

If anyone has experience installing one, I'd sure appreciate having you show me how to do that.

I'm a slow learner. If I ever need that done again, I might need to see the process demonstrated again.

Thanks, in advance.

Take care,

P.S. Seriously, already did the install. Not too bad...really, it wasn't.

The one I order comes with a 10' hose, the extension is $30.00 and up for 10' which I think is rather high. Will a regular garden hose work or should I go to HW store and buy vinyl hose.

The 8 year old Blue Ox tow bar, with God only knows how many over the road miles on it, was getting a bit sloppy so it got replaced with a new one.

Had the most fun I have had in a few years. NOT! Installed a new caliper, brake pads and two brake hoses on the left rear of my motorhome. Took a while to remove the support bracket bolts. My high power air gun would not break the 3/4 inch bolts. Finally got smart and brought out my hydraulic floor jack. Put my two foot breaker bar on the socket and placed it on the bolt. I put the jack pad on the end of the breaker bar and started pumping. The bar started bending and I thought it might break, but the bolt finally let loose. I had to do both bolts that way. It took this 75 year old 6 and 1/2 hours, but I got the job done. The bad news is, I have three more to do when the parts get here.
