The phase of the yokes will be triple check and the fun part of jacking up the rear to finish the hanger bearing alignment procedure in the manual.

I hope you have better luck with the hanger bearing than I did, I had to replace it on my 64 Caddie. First off they couldn't find one and I guess it was a real pain n the rear installing it.
Good Luck,
Tim

I've done NOTHING!

Since I ripped apart the living room so I could start doing the re-wiring and insulating, I have not done anything. Just after I ripped the living room apart a homeless man who had no where to live, moved into our trailer at my request. He was living in his truck and in a tent sometimes in a back lawn. He was sick from the damp and was so happy for me to offer him a 36 foot trailer with heat, a kitchen with a full size frig and micro wave, stove, double sink and tons of storage space, plus a full 4 piece bathroom and a bedroom with a double bed and hot and cold running water plus free cable for a TV. I also gave him free eggs from our chicken coop and told him he was free to sell as many eggs as he wanted. I am doing my best to support a homeless Canadian person and just last week he was offered a job in a camp in northern Alberta. Maybe I'll begin to renovate our trailer again after he moves out. We love our Prairie Schooner and would even like to live in it one day if we buy some acreage up in the Cariboo.

May or may not return to Quartzsite on our return trip.
Quarzsite is great anytime but January. Its nice to meet a group out there and boon dock out there, but if you like peace and quiet not the place to be.

The last week I've been doing nothing but chasing down leaks caused by too much water pressure. The regulator with the guage on it bit the dust. Normally they plug this one just blew out. Leaks at the W/D prep plumbing, the water heater, and the toilet. I'm tired and sore.

Greetings!

Our coach is a rear radiator. On the drivers side is most of the engine components, turbo, altenator, A/C compressor, air filter, etc.. Also on the drivers side rear is the A/C condenser. Access to the engine was tough, hard to reach and a very small space to work through.

Recently our altenator died, and I decided these types of repairs needed to be easier. Here is my mod to address.

There is a coach body frame rail that boxes the outside of the compartment. I cut it out, and modified so it can be bolted in and out. I then modified the condeser mount, and set it up on hinges (the hoses were long enough) so that removal of 4 bolts allows it to swing out of the way. The end result is I have a much bigger space to work though, and with the frame rail out I can get 15" closer to the work area. I am able to open up this access in about 10 mins.

Went out to the storage facility and checked tire pressure, checked for any internal leaks and did a basic visual inspection of the interior and exterior of the MH. All was good.

1993 p30 Wheel simulators

I have been working on new wheel simulators.On my p30 chassis I have a 1/4 inch thick steel lug retainer ring that made most simulators not feasible because of the lack of threads left on the lugs. So I did this. Refer to pics. 1 down three to go.
