Make sure you have a full 12volts to the headlamps. Many factory installs run through the switch and tons of wiring and by the time it gets to the lights you end up with 10 volts or less! I rewired mine with relays and wow, what a difference. A full 12.6 volts to the lamps.

A few new suspension and generator parts starting arriving today ... coming this weekend:

- Polyurethane bushings front and rear
- new generator fuel pump
- new koni's front and rear

We're heading back to Williamsburg, VA in a few weeks. I can't wait to see how the new bushings + koni's + CHF effect the ride and handling on our '05 F53 chassis.

Ohh ... there might also be a 5 Star Tune coming too - just itchin' to pull the trigger on that one.

Just receive a TST tire pressure system. Have to figure out how to install that on the front tires with the fancy chrome hubcaps.

Ghostman - From where did you order your headlights? I'm actually looking for replacement connectors directly behind the lights. My a crumbling as we speak. I still have working lights but it's a matter of time until the "plugs" disintegrate and short the connection. Thanks in advance.

Why not just buff them out with plastic polish?

I tried it and no to little luck, I used my big buffer and it didn't cut it (sodaspeak) Ours was more of a sand blasting from the sand put down on our MN Hwy's in the winter. We now go too AZ for the winter Sand blasting No More.

The headlight connectors are at NAPA.

I worked in a canopy shop for aircraft. When they were lightly pitted, you had to start with a 320 grit wet or dry paper, then use the buffer. We never replaced any unless they were distorted or cracked.

The new Koni's showed up today ... and I spent a few more dollars on tools needed to properly complete the job.

If all works to plan, I hope to test drive the RV with the upgraded suspension components this weekend
