Put six new tires on MH. Usually buy two at the time a couple months apart. This time just bit the bullet and did them all at once.

Please No comments about residential.. Could'a easily done it but it simply isn't the way to go when boondocking 99.9%!of the time., if NORCOLD and Dometic hadn't caused this problem and this technology was developed 10 years ago, I seriously doubt residential would have ever taken off.
Where did you get the cooling unit? I have a Dometic side X side that still works good. But at 18 years old it's a matter of time before it quits. Have thought about replacing the cooling unit or going residential.

Jeff: This is a new one for me. Does it use water with the gas? How long is the warranty? Who can we contact to find out the details?

Only 18 years? My old Swedish made G.E. is 42 years old and still going. They last so long as they're used and not abused . If they sit for long periods of time all the time, they will die because the rust inhibitor will not circulate.

Ordered the Steer Safe Stabilizers today, also set of six marker lights to be set up as clearance and blinkers on the side of the coach, new headlight assembly's and two clear lenses for the back to replace one that is cracked and want it to look even back there! Also new wiper blades 'cause the ones that have been on there for a year are the pits!

Also borrowing (not buy so probably doesn't count) a set of scaffolds so i can get the oxidation off the sides and get her sparkling like the new stripes we had done this spring!

Currently trying to find a pair of nice looking directional reading lights with scones similar to the ones in my 5th wheel for the Amerigo. They're really nice looking, but I can't seem to find them, all the ones I do find look like an artist smoked way too much weed and tried to get all artistic and ended up creating some seriously ugly reading light fixtures.

I also replaced my male 50 amp plug on my main power cord with the Camco replacement plug. The old one was bent at a strange angle and looked as if it could come loose.

I watched the Youtube video before I started and it was a great help. The thing they don't tell you is that your wires may be a much heavier gage than the ones in the video. This makes cutting, bending and fitting the wires in place more difficult... but I got it done and I am pleased with the way it works and feels.

Haha. Yes. Largest wire I ever worked with. Cut lengths have to be just right or one of the other wires will be stressed.
