I'd love to drag her there in March and hit either Havasu or Mead, or just stay in the area and hit Lake Pleasant, but I won't be able to tow the boat and a method of transportation, so transportation wins out this time. Plus, she developed a knock at the rear of the engine which starts around 1800rpm; almost positive it's a cracked flex plate but am waiting on some warmer weather to check it. She's too long for the garage so I can't close the garage door, and checking the flex plate will require prepping and semi-pulling the engine. Gotta get enough weight off it to slide it forward on the rails far enough to pull the driveshaft. Not something I want to tackle in 20* weather. Strange though, the flex plate was installed brand new during the build, and is SFI rated to 9000rpm. I'll also be pulling the Stealth intake and installing either the original CJ/Marine intake (after powdercoating) or a Torker II. The Stealth runners are just too big to provide the intake velocity needed at lower RPMs (~5200 max). The Stealth would work great in a car though; the engine should pull hard to 6500rpm (hmmmm, maybe swap it into the Falcon 'vert???)

It looks like weather permitting we'll be out there roughly March 22/23-26.
Man that is bad news sorry to hear that. We'll still be out there. I bet it would be a blast on the lake. There is always the stacker trailer, ask Gordon...

Went and filled the propane tank, installed a couple pull down shades for my front side windows even got to use them this afternoon.
My window tint I ordered came today. I am going to add 3-6 inch pcs on the top of the windshield Don't currently have anything. Then I'm going to do the top of the drivers door and the top of the passenger window. Just for the late afternoon.
Hung a string of solar powered Christmas lights Led's in the living room area.

Thanks for asking,
I bought it online from HD
http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/pro...d29480_400.jpg
Gila
Peel & cling
Black
Privacy Control,
Daytime Privacy
3 ft by 6.5 foot
It is defiantly Dark (like it says Black) but that is what I was looking for. There is no tinting along the top of the windshield so I really get the afternoon sun beating down on us. Same as the side windows
I am hoping to do it in 6 inches wide but that might hit the wipers So I'll look at that today.
I am hoping that I can cut it with a Paper Cutter or I will purchase a few Carpet Blades (Those are really sharp be careful) I will not look out where the tint will be so it won't affect my vision while underway.
I think I might have to install in AZ kinda cold in the Mpls area... I hope too get it up before the winter trip though. But I will take pic's of it.
Tim

Thanks. I want to do the same as well as all of the windows. I am not sure what to do with the front side windows. You can come to my house and we can do them both. It was 77 here yesterday.

Funny u should say that, I was just asked if we could leave tomorrow, I said why and was told that it is cold out side. 39 degrees feels like 32. I said that isn't cold...
We'll be out that way sure enough.
I might start today after I get the MH warmed up. Would be nice to have it installed before we leave even if just above on the windshield.

Tim, do you have a link to a gallery of pictures of your motorhome? I really like those years of Pace Arrows and Southwinds, especially the original interiors. I also love how you have all of the window awnings. Super cool!

Not exactly today but this week past, I converted the bedroom from two twin beds to one Queen bed. And, converted a hanging clothes closet right next to the kitchen stove, into an appliance closet. With a days distance and perspective I can honestly say Yes!, That is exactly how I wanted to build the shelf supports.
But, after four years we're sleeping on sheets in a bed and I no longer have to move appliances around as though we were living in a New York city apartment.

hey SPRITZ !!-- did i read it correctly that your putting window tint on the front of your coach and that you were worried about the wipers hitting it,---if so cant you put it on the inside of the window..---i have tinted alot of different vehicles even before they made it for cars---i stole the idea waaaay back in the day when they only made it for aircrafts...lol
i hope i didnt make a fool of myself again,,just trying to be helpfull....lol

No I am!!!! My wipers are on the outside and my tint will be on the inside. My fingers got ahead of the old noodle. Thanks for the catch.
My outdoor temp gauge clings to the outside window.
I will be able too have it @ 6 inches from the top of the windshield down inside.
Thanks again,
Tim

I played a parts runner, After the terrible lost in the Football game this afternoon.
After reading about greasing the u-joints on another forum I thought its been a while since we checked them so Joe got down on the creeper and sure enough no signs of grease on the u-joints.
He got too use a new grease gun my brother gave me for my B-Day last summer but it was almost out of grease so I ran for some and a few other items and got back home and forgot the grease so back to the store again.
He got all 4 caps to purge on the 3 u-joints: dance: Hoping that along with new tires and Bilstiens we should be set in that aspect .I finally got to upload some of my project's although small it made a hug difference too us. The dresser I brought from the S&B No storage for cloths, My new pancake compressor, Finally got the curtains up and hug around the front. We can also move the center section to behind the front seats to help keep the heat up front for cold weather driving, A few items left to do before the trip Southwest, I got the mirrors installed but don't know what happened to the pictures. And 2 LD lights

Put in a new brake booster and master cylinder and bled the brakes. Just so everyone knows. To bleed the brakes properly in a motorhome, you need to do it with the engine running
