We're going to completely redo the interior of the coach (according to the wife). At this time we can not agree what our requirements are so nothing is getting done. For me, it will be a couple of years until the wife figures out we can't agree because then nothing will get done. She will then put her foot down and tell me how the coach will be redone. Of course at that time we might not have the $s in the budget.

I have never checked the hyd. fluid in the leveling system (I figure if it's not leaking- it's ok). I've never weighed the rv...I only drive three miles to our spot and never over 40mph but I think it should be done anyway.

I haven't been able to break the 100-mph barrier.

I haven't been able to achieve more than 8 mpg.

And I haven't stayed at a Holiday Inn Express since I bought it.

I want to change the rubber lines on the brake calipers/cylinders. They look good and aren't cracked and are flexible. I don't know if they have ever been changed so they could be 26 years old.

I have flushed the brake fluid but I'll be changing the flex lines while I'm in Arizona over the winter and installing speed bleeders. Also need to think about doing the power steering lines. The fuel line from the pump to the carb is new but I need to do a few spots further down towards the tank. Also want to get an electric fuel pump installed at some point.

Break the 100mph barrier. Now who would do that and try to ruin everything?
