I visited the garage where mine was towed. Told that the radiator was the culprit of all the fluid. I hoped it was a hose. HA,HA!

Replaced the bath tub/shower faucet... The divertor valve would leak when using the shower...We took it apart and cleaned it but couldn't get to the divertor valve... Had to go to cw as ours comes up out of the tub instead of the wall like most... Seems to work good now,,, much more pressure out of the shower head ...

Had to use a hole saw and cut a big hole in the front to get to anything. Had to replace the roll pins in the gears. They were just worn out and broke. Luckily the other side has an electrical outlet I could take out and have jsut enough room to get a punch in there and pound the pin in. Got really lucky they both broke facing straight forward. I don't know what I would have done if they were cross ways.

I scrubbed the roof and put the last coat of elastomeric
to protect it. Then I cleaned all the black streaks off the
fiberglass that collected over the winter.

Next I will be replacing the front window and resealing all
the surfaces along with having the timing belt and water
pump replaced. Then I will be ready to hit the road!

Drove nice and easy enjoying the scenery coming up out of Florida. Milage is actually increasing as we go north, guess the colder air is doing it, lots of hills in NC and Virginia coming up I-77, but averaging 9.25-9.75 with cruise on 55-60! I'm happy, hell my work van gets about that! Have a Great Day! Bobby

Going to try and fire up the fridge, We just decided to go Boondocking @ my Brothers this weekend. It only works on propane, so if it don't work Replacement time. I found a Residential replacement @ Manards I'll get a couple extra sq feet too.

Replaced the back-up camera system. Had a single camera RVS system only 4 years old- bought it when we started full-timing but the St. Bernrd smashed the monitor last summer. Bought a purchased-but-never-installed dual camera system off ebay from a guy in Arizona for only a little more than the cost of a new monitor.
Moved the old camera over to a new brace under the passenger side mirror for a passing camera and put the new dual camera on the back- one camera is pointed down at the tow-bar and front of the toad, and the other is pointed out and back like normal.
Everything works, thankfully, so a little tidying up and I'm done with that annoying chore.

Been sanding the mirrors with wet/dry sandpaper to get them ready for paint since they were all chipped. Looking Good!

Spending $19,000 of our money and $10,000 of Cummins to rebuild the ISX 650 after buying it and only driving it 2,600 miles. That's enough for me right now.
