Over the past week I have done a few things to my 04 Pace Arrow to get ready for a busy season this year!

- Repaired thermostat in water heater -was burned out
-replaced 2 slide toppers, 3rd is on order
- reattached crown molding, that has come loose over the years
- replaced water faucet on kitchen sink- may need to spend a little time winterizing next year😎
- redid plumbing on water heater bypass- leak on lower elbow,
- had to redo all the plex as the original was all glued together
- changed oil on Onan Genset
- changed engine oil - switch to Mobil 1.
- replaced water valve on ice maker as well as water line to ice maker. Now we have ice again after 12 months of no ice😜
- hopping that I fixed the flame out issue with the refrigerator while driving down the road.
- I made the gap on the burner housing s small as possible, hope that did it.

Still left to do over the next week
- lube chassis
- track down slide leak, it's small but a leak indeed!
- wash/wax unit and clean roof
- waiting on Koni 8805-1001 / -1003 shocks to get here in the next few days to get a smoother ride.

Then there are a few more cleaning chores to do. I am hopping to recruit the DW to help with these
- refrigerator needs to be washed down
- Carpet steamed and vacuumed

That is what I did to my old rig this week 😎👍🏼

Tried to replace the dinette on Thursday, furniture arrived in damaged condition due to poor packing.

Was going to shorten up the Kitchenette 6" to get a 80" bed in our Chieftain , but Sally told me she could live with it as it is . Told me to work on other things that won't require so much work. I am going to rearrange the stuff under the bed and get a real mattress instead of that piece of foam that was in there. Going to raise the platform up to give me more storage and to make it easier to get out of the bed it is too low as it is. So I put the microwave back in and will rebuild the floor where the fridge goes and put it back in as I got the new boards on the fridge so it should work fine! Have a Great Day , Bobby

I think I'm about done on my chore list before we take off in June. The new control board for the generator is on the way, and replacing that is the last major thing on the list.

I have been vacillating on repainting the stripes on the exterior and a few other cosmetics since we've been in slow-motion negotiation for another rig, but it now looks like the owner isn't going to let it go at our price. I made the mistake of letting myself really want the new rig (actually a 1971 GMC bus conversion) and now I'm disappointed instead of shrugging it off.

I put the same memory foam mattress topper on our Rv bed as we have on our mattress at home. Makes a world of difference transitioning between the two.

At 6'-6", though, an 80" mattress wasn't only a want, it was a need!


I like the "lift kit" idea for your bed. It's not like the airspace above the bed is ever used for anything. I'm going to steal that idea.

I also want to add a light under our bed. 90's GMC cars and trucks had them with a mercury switch (converted to LED, of course!). Tip it up and the light comes on.

MT4Runner, seems to me at 6'6" a low bed would be a pain for you too. I'm only 5'11" and Sally is 5'10" and it feels like your pulling yourself out of a hole to get up. Our rig is only 22' so any extra storage space is appreciated! Also at home we have a hi pillow top bed and it is so much easier to get in and out of, and yes the airspace above the bed is wasted, we gave up acrobatics about 10 years ago, lol! Bobby

Started Friday night. I tore out the 22 year old carpet. yuck. And started laying down some TrafficMaster vinyl planks. Its all done but the stair trim and tile transition to the galley. There is a huge list of things coming.

I put a bit more organization to my dashboard area by building this small shelf

Ripped up the carpet in our (tiny) bathroom, replaced the toilet, used a heavy duty plain textured wall paper to cover the blue brown and gold flowered paper that was on the two walls, used stick and peel adhesive tile on the floor and replaced the leaky faucet in the sink. We can't wait to get this finished! I would have loved to replace the sink, but the faucet is not at the top of the sink but at the side, and I couldn't find a replacement. Also, we used countertop paint to change the color of the tiny little counter!

I built and installed a secondary generator exhaust pipe hangar and installed miniblinds on the windows in the pop-out.

Looks beautiful RD, i'm looking to put it in mine, i'm just concerned about minor accidents our 4 legged friends might have. I have heard some of those floors you glue the joints and wipe them down , does that seal the joints? Bobby
