A couple good products are ColorBack, and GelGloss. They don't take a lot of elbow grease.

When I was using my '78 Ford with built 460 to haul a camper around I experienced what I thought was fuel pump failure. It would quit running in city traffic or slow climbing hills up hunting. A new pump worked until in those conditions again. The pump is right behind the big radiator hose to radiator. Lots of heat and air flow blocked , determined it was vaporlock. Took it off, installed a cover plate and electric fuel pump. No more trouble.

Filled propane tank today... $64.00
Started Waxing today. I 'm trying a paste wax this year. So far it is working great even though it has oxidation on the front and rear caps.
Very happy. I had used a oxidation remover (liquid) then wax so I can eliminate that step.

Replaced a pair of gas strut springs that were used to hold open one of the basement doors. They had gone bad several years ago to where if I wasn't paying attention the door would fall on my head. You know the drill!

Well I hadn't done that earlier because my local RV Dealer quoted them a $80 dollars each. I have 9 in my coach and all were showing their age.

On a whim I checked E Bay last weekend while nursing a knot on my head and bought a pair from an auto supply in Kentucky for $22.75 with free shipping. They work perfectly. Going to buy enough to replace them all by Summer. May even add some to the hood too! That prop rod and I do not get along at all.

Doing good, got the 64 1/2 done and this new (to me) Paste wax and it looks a world of difference. It took off all the little swirls from dusting it off.
I tried on the MH and was amazed that it brought out the shine with out having to use a oxidation remover. I got all the rags washed and going to start on the MH this weekend while up at the resort. I have 4 days to try and get her done. What a relaxing weekend.
It starts tonight with watching Friday Night Fights @ the casino
Thanks for asking, and have a Nice Weekend.
Tim

Same here!! I was quoted $18/ea for my pickup canopy rear glass. $22/pr shipped likely from the same seller on eBay on Monday.

Great idea to add them to the hood. I may do the same.

I took up some carpet in the dinette area and bought some Brazilian Cherrywood laminate flooring. I'll be installing it tomorrow morning

Got enough free laminate (still wrapped in boxes) from a neighbour who bought too much for their project. When I 'git er dun' the only carpeting will be in the bedroom. That was planned for removal too but SWMBO sure put the kibosh on those plans in a hurry.

Tell her that if she has leg craps one cure is to put your foot on a cool surface. Rug does not work.

OK - The other option is to find that thread and show it to her.

I would tell her but likey during the conversation it would come up that you had asked me to do it. I would avoid the topic but if she asked me I would tell her the truth.
