Purchased a bottle of 303 Aerospace Protectant to apply on tires to keep them from cracking and looking new.

They work well but I need to find something for the oil filter removal without spilling oil!

Today it was three roof vent covers, a Progressive Industries surge protector and the coach side of the Air Force One toad brake system. All installed by our dealer, Midway RV Center, Grand Rapids MI.

I hammer a Philips screwdriver through the bottom of the oil filter to let it drain before I take it off.

I just bought a surge protector cord ,but was also thinking about protecting it from getting stolen.
I figured with all the people in our jails and prisons in our country that their cant be that many crooks running around lose know a days wanting to steal my plug.
I will post my beware of dog sign and pray my Pomeranian puppy will take care of that someone wanting to steal my surge protector plug.

Yes, that problem is still on my list. But on the bright side, my front axle isn't going to rust out any time soon!

Surge Protector Lock

Travatoguy, there is a surge protector lock box you can get for your surge protector.

Jay, I really like my Air Force One. Definitely lowers your length required to stop and appears trouble free? Just installed full length gutter guards with X long drain spouts painted to match coach body.

I like it too, both for function and the fact it takes 10 seconds to hook up or disconnect.

We've had it for years, just needed the coach side of the equation installed into the new rig.

After the filter is loose place a plastic bag over it and finish the removal.

Very true! Sometimes, places will throw in one for free when you order a surge protector online. That's how I got my lock box.

Very little exposure to RV tank water which can easily make you sick. Drinking water out of a standard garden hose can also make you sick with chemicals used in manufacturing. That's why drinking hose is the special white variety. Don't know about the slinky hose, probably not good to drink thru but I am using it because I don't drink that water anyway.

Chip repair for the windshield. Don't think it will be successful. New windshield in the near future I am afraid.
