Our 5th wheel cover was shredded in a wind storm. We bought a new ADCO 32854 Designer Series Tan/White Tyvek 5th Wheel RV Cover and it looks great. Never liked the old grey cover anyways.

I bought a short extension cord today to top off my chassis battery this winter via a Battery Minder Plus. Lost the chassis battery last winter on my new to me 2011 camper.

New coach batteries. New starter. New fuses for converter, A/C thermostat, water pump....don't ask. New front tires Goodyear G647s.

Converter is under the washer/dryer, which I had replaced with a small Danby fridge, which I had to remove to get to the converter. All back together now.

Found the DC fuse panel inside the bathroom sink cabinet. Thanks to drawings from Fleetwood.

I went to 4-5 auto parts stores on my side of town looking for the starter. One place "tested" mine and caused smoke to rise 2-3 times. Finally took it to the nearest AutoZone. The worker looked at mine, walked to the shelves and brought out the right one first time....and at a reasonable price.

Be careful with AutoZone starters and alternators. They sell allot of junk from China.

We bought and installed plastic film to cover windows. Help keep the cold and drafts out. We will be sticking it out here for the winter. Here, is Eastern Washington state. We are in TT 26', Lynx 1990.
If we are really good, maybe Santa can drop off a 32' Jayco 5th wheel.
Haven't decided on a surge protector, yet. Taking surveys in the park.

I did mine a couple of months ago. You could almost pave a drive-way with all the "gravel" that washed out. It really is quite amazing how much junk accumulates in there.

I just put up a 43" and it fit beautifully. Plenty big enough. Speaking about the new TV I installed above the dash. Also bought a new couch to replace the original scissor bed with a very nice sofa bed. Macktee

New curved shower rod, removed the bi-fold original one & frame, gives more shower space, got it at Home depot,, had to cut it down to fit the smaller opening, vast improvement over the old one.

Last May I bought and installed a factory rebuilt long block engine assembly and new exhaust headers in my RV. That sorta burned me out on new RV stuff for the time being. My next purchase, in January or February, will be a new fuel pump to replace the defective fuel pump installed by Ford when my RV was built, but never replaced by Ford even though they knew they had a problem with it. FORD = Fix Or Repair Daily.
