So many great things upgrading campers.
I just installed a dump hose carrier on my rear bumper to get it out of the service area.

Just purchased a new Swagman XTC2 for back of Coach or Toad and 2 new multi speed beach cruisers for DW and myself. Gonna get our exercise burn on this coming week at some local state parks. Also bought Robin Williams movie RV so when things look bad I can watch and know they could be worse.

Safe Traveles to All.

I installed the 5 star tune in my Class C. I took it for a short spin and I do like the new shifting pattern.
Being a flatlander there aren't any serious hills to test it on, but next week we'll be in the Smokey Mountains. In anxious to see how it does

Troubleshot the dead backup camera and replaced the failed transmitter. One of these days I'll just run a video cable from the rear to the front.

New springs for the 5th wheel after the springs on 1 of the axles broke. Has been weighed, not close to overloaded. The smoke coming out from under the trailer clued me in as the springs ate the tires, which I also had to replace.

Coyote--I am curious why you chose the Centramatic for the front and beads for the back. Why not beads all around or Centramatic all around?

Love Noctua fans! Are you into PC building? Curious why you chose Noctua specifically for aux fridge cooling. Good choice either way.

Beautiful day, we were finally able to get out and check things out in our new to us mh. We went Walmart shopping. We bought our white hoses, sewer hoses, a screen door cross bar (which my son installed for us), some chemicals, simple green, water pressure regulators, tension bars for the refrigerator and the cupboards. Wow, sure does add up and thats not all that's on our list! The first thing we bought was the hard wired surg protector. Can't wait to go camping.

RE the springs. I do feed them grease. As they were replacing the spring sets, they told me there was plenty of grease. The springs broke about a third of the way along their length.
