That's easy. Just pull a piece of mule tape through it when you pull the RCA cables out. Then you can pull the HDMI cables back with the mule tape.

Good advise. I also started doing that. If the coach has been sitting I spray them, wipe them off with a paper towel and spray them again. That makes the right front more cooperative.

My biggest complaint is the scarce availability of chassis maintenance providers (Ford). Most regular Ford dealerships won't touch a motorhome, and now it seems that most Ford commercial truck dealerships don't want to, either. We live in a major metro area, and it's pitiful that with so many huge Ford dealerships nearby that none will work on RVs. Having a drivetrain warranty isn't of much use when you can't get a dealership to do the work.

Ours is infested with electrical gremlins.
-Galley fan works, but won't come on because no power.
- Rear slideout works, but often no power to the switch
- Water pump sometimes works, wiggling the connector near the pump gets it going
- Step usually works, but often the light says it didn't.
- "No AC" says the Norcold. Outlet behind it has power

Moho weight is too close to max gvw without supplies. Windshield must have rock magnets in them.

Just called Progressive to file a claim on our windshield. I'm not sure what cracked it.

Over 100 degrees in Texas and working full time. But AC units keep it perfect. 3 AC units a requirement here.

Vacuum cleaner, some string and cotton will easily take care of that.
