Check TT and TV tires for pressures, hooked up power plug for lights and brake checks. Crap one axle doesn't hum when brakes applied. Found and fixed broken brake wire. Now, all 4 brakes hum as should.

Just need to remove storage tarp over A/C and hook up TT and we're ready to haul donkey to weekend campsite.

Called the paint store I use today, and they were going to order it, but mentioned that they could also get Hammerite, which is much better anyway, so I had them get me 2 quarts of hammerite in dark green
Bam!!!
Silver base color,
Green around the basement area, green, & copper stripes.
Want one more color, but can't figure out what color I want
Maybe a hammered red, thin stripe.

So yesterday I found new clearance marker lights for $1.89 a piece. So I replaced all my marker lights and put up my 16' awning light (blue). Can't wait to see what it looks like at night

Installed new hydraulic pump motor on the HWH system that operates our slides & lowers the jacks. Apx $290 for the new motor ...made in Slovenia. Motor failed originally in 2013, and a mobile tech in Rapid City SD determined the internal ground was bad, and it took the two of us to rebuild it on the spot. It started acting up again a couple of weeks ago so I figured it was time for a new one. Took 5 days to receive it, and apx 30 minutes to swap it out. When I took the old one apart it showed signs of extreme heat at the internal ground, with the plastic/composite base for the grounded side brushed being badly melted.

Just curious Jerry, what did they bang you for 2 quarts of that? Bobby

Replaced the broken Peizo (sp?) on my propane stove top and also flashed the PCM with the 5 Star Tune that I purchased through the group buy on this website.

Replaced engine water pump, thermostat, radiator hoses and heater hoses. Nothing had failed but the heater hoses were original so I wanted to freshen up the cooling system since next weekend we are headed for a hard pull over the mountains to Eastern WA for 5 days at Charbonneau Park on the Snake River.
Fought a few busted bolts but finally got everything buttoned back up today an NO LEAKS!

18 per quart..
Waste of money this time. Ended up doing something wrong, went on poorly,
Something I did, would not spray, would not roll, would not brush.
This paint project has simply been a pain. Nothing has gone right.

Probably wasted 80 bucks of paint, and several days of work.
I am on track now though, so put it behind, and move forward.
I will have to redo the green portion, ordered some rustoleum hammered for that.
Not worth waiting for the Hammerite, or the price. at this time.
The color pattern looks good, the paint not so much. Just going to have to spend some time sanding and recoating it.
Oh well, still saving a lot over having it painted.

I' d call your paint supplier and find out what went wrong?! I don't know what spray gun you were using but some paints require different orifices and nozzles to spray different materials. Did you try to spray it right out of the can or did you thin it? Sorry it didn't come out like you wanted. Bobby

Not really my RV but my buddy John came over today and we installed the rear view camera and monitor in his unit. The Monitor is hard wired (with fuse) to the unit and the camera is powered from the vehicle running lights. Only had to drill one hole and the whole process went we and pretty seamlessly. We took it for a test run and to say he is pleased with being able to see immediately behind him after all these years is quite the understatement. I will install my identical unit when we get back from our planned camping trip.
