I just ordered a gas strut for one of the storage compartment doors on my Sundancer. I replaced four of them a few months ago. I'll probably have to replace all of them before I get this MH sold.
We're almost sixteen months into a 3 weekend rebuild.

Better than that, take the interior panel off and wire it in to the incoming AC line. Not that hard.

Installed a motion detector type on the outside. Sure is a neat light and provides an element of security.

Four new shocks installed last week. And a fuel pump being replaced next week (wait'n for parts). Argh.

Ain't these things a major money pit? But it has to be worth it, right!

Just finished applying EPDM Liquid RV Roof coating. Lots of work but well worth it. Also rebuilt the Thetford Aqua Magic toilet and replaced the ridiculous carpet on the toilet pedestal with vinyl. Chuck

Over the past 4 months, I have replaced all but 3 of the 921 incandescent bulbs with LED. The porch, front corner, and 2 ramp loading - 956 bulbs too, are now LED.
I have a motion activated, battery powered entry light and another motion light for the bathroom.
Also got a Camp Chef 60 series outdoor stove on sale and a plastic table with sink from Big Lots for my outdoor kitchen.

Being as on our last trip in the RV last Oct. I had to replace all 7 tires,(the tires were all almost 5yrs old) and have the Onan Generator repaired (because of lack of maintenance) all sort of my fault.

I had to go last week and replace the battery's in the "Smoke Detector" so I bought a couple of new 9v battery's

Any way to make a long story short , I purchased a TST 507rv Tire Monitor System.

Model# TM-507SG

6 Tire Pressure Monitoring System - Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems - Truck System Technologies

I bought it at Amazon cheaper than anywhere else.

That's pretty neat and at a decent price considering what tires cost!

Wheni posted my post I should have included these two previous posts.

What was the last thing you bought for your RV ?

Is this a Generator or A/C Problem
