Four new T-105 Trojan batteries....last ones were installed in Nov. 2006. New 46" TV (this was covered under warranty so it was N/C) up from a 42"...we can't go any bigger. Two new Koni's for the rear of the coach.

Kinda reminds me of a boat....Break Out Another Thousand

The lights all appear to be original so are very sun faded and brittle. Probably time for a full LED upgrade. But I need to get her inspected. Soon. And only one lens was broken. I've found a lot of good information by doing just what you did. And saved a lot of time.

I have not read the entire thread. But, as for winter camping/living, one thing that should not be overlooked, if you have the washer/dryer, be sure to protect those water/drain lines, too.

Someone posted a list of abbreviations that are used on this forum. I don't remember where it is. Maybe if you search for it you can find and save it for future reference.

My wife refers to me as DW all the time.
Dimwit is not two words I keep trying to tell her.
I did score something really cool for the MH today. I got a Coleman coffee maker that you set on top of the stove and it works like a hot damn. I have run CLR though it to clean the gunk and water carried crap from the unit; put it through the dishwasher (Denise is away at daughter's house) and it is set aside to dry. I will try it on the side burner on the BBQ in the morning. Great $5.00 purchase.

If it works as good as it looks I won't have to run the generator to make coffee in the mornings while camping.

Today is a special day. The Winnebago is fully legal. Inspected, weighed (17000) insured and tagged. And it now has a brand new Coleman LXE grill. And a new start battery. The adapter for the portable AC exhaust will be here today

New Brake Fluid, Front Wheel bearing Lube, Stemco Wheel Seal, 3/4" to 1" drive adapter and a case of brake clean to finish the front brakes. Also new rubber hoses for the hydraulic side of the Air over Juice brakes. It may take me a few more weeks to finish the front brakes, but I will know they were done right.

Building a shelter to help protect the motorhome. Just a frame to cover tightly with a heavy duty tarp.
