Wow!! Glad I don't have those! You took impecible care of those tires. I also use the 303 protectant and keep the coach garaged and tires covered when out RVing. I run the big 22" 18 wheeler tires in Michelin. Almost 1K each after mounting and balance. And I have 6!

Pipe. And saturday, it'll be the finish wall paneling and the bucket of mastic to adhere it to the underlayer of plywood that is part of the walls.

I bought one of those too several months back. Its great for measuring water flow. It shows in gallons, the amount of water that has flowed through it. So, when I want to put 30 gallons of fresh water in the fresh water tank, I know when I'm done. Simply hooks between the hose and the faucet.

That drain hole in my wallet has 'allowed' me to buy an entry screen door protector to prevent our poodlepups from unintended CG romping. Also parts to assemble a better water filter then the usual inline CAMCO. Then a 6' Fastaway coiled breakaway cable. Lastly, a zero gravity reclining lawn chair, a table to hold my adult beverage of choice while reclining and a replacement clock for the 5er's LR area. There is always going to be more, but not at one time. I'll wait until tomorrow to see if we need some more gadgets and necessities

Washer/Dryer for DW, she hates going to the laundromat and we had one in our last coach that met the need for small stuff. We're out for months at a time and it's a time saver

Glad to see that I'm not the only one suffering from the drain hole in my wallet. I tried changing my wallet, but it doesn't help

So what's new in our RV over the past 2 months ...

- Brand New Dometic 8500 15' Awning (original was destroyed in a wind storm)
- All new rear brakes - Rotors, Calipers, Pads and Axle seals
- New Kwikee step motor and control board
- New Step covers
- Maxxair Vents for Bedroom, Bathroom and Fantastic Fan in Living Room
- New ventline seals and cranks for bedroom and bathroom vents
- New regulator for our Weber Q200
- Replaced our Aqua Magic V Toilet with a Thetford Residential Toilet
- Upgraded CoPilot Navigation to CoPilot RV Version
- Amazon Fire TV for the RV
- 5 Way HDMI Splitter for Fire TV, Chromecast, ROKU & direct HDMI input
- SpyTec Dashcam
- Eternaclean and some more Eternabond
- New carburetor, fuel filter, air filter, oil filter and spark plugs for our Onan 5500
- 8x15 Awning Shade Kit
- Collapsable Table and 4 chair kit for outside dining
- Gutter extensions
- Brushed Nickel Bathroom faucet to match the kitchen faucet we replaced last year.
- Thousand Trails Northeast and Southeast Zone Membership (BOGO)
- An Ultimate Trailer Jack for our car trailer. This is the Ultimate Jack!

I thought we were in the market to replace our countertop ice maker also, but I decided to take it apart, and it appears that the fan just needed some cleanup.

We're headed out to Pocono Raceway in 11 days for the race weekend, and from there going to Williamsburg VA for a week. I'm sure we'll find something else to spend money on

Happy Trails ...
