Finally warmed up enough in Cincinnati to get out on the roof of the rv and paint the bottom of the front AC unit (rusty) and get a coat of koolseal on the roof repairs. Hope to finish it tomorrow!

No actual work on it but dug out the front end. Last weekend I took the rear tires off and took them to be replaced (in -20 degree weather no less) and this weekend I have to put the fronts back on. Hopefully tomorrow will be a bit warmer. Also ordered all new sway bar bushings this week for front and rear. March 30th is rapidly approaching and with any luck i wont have to snow blow it out !

Installed our new front tires today and sprayed all the bolts on the sway bars. Also tested our new "tail gator" satellite dish. It worked perfect ! Mail came and the new bushings are now sitting on the kitchen table. Then the wife arrived with a new LED TV.

Had a low brake pedal on my 96 p32 chassis 35 foot Rexhall Aerbus. At slow speed had a brake squeak on rear brakes. Thursday put new disk break pads and calipers in and bleed till new brake fluid showed. Took all day but now I have an excelant break pedal. Good brakes are sure nice to have!

We took advantage of the great weather today and got started on the renovations. I got another coat of koolseal on the roof around the front AC unit, hopefully I can reinstall the AC unit next week.
Inside we took down all the wood valances and miniblinds on all the windows....it looks a lot roomier inside now! Then I patched all the screw and nail holes in the walls in preparation for painting. Installed a new led light in the bathroom...much brighter now! I unrolled one of the small awnings for the first time...man is it grungy. Hopefully the rain will clean it off the next few days.
Man do I have a lot more ahead of me, both outside and inside. But it will be great when we get finished!

Looks like rain here all day and week. Time to work on the dash electrical. Accessories stopped coming on with the key. Have to get it fixed.

Off topic...You are from Cincinnati? We camped at Winton Woods this past summer and plan to return this year. My wife has family just north of there in Lebanon.

Hellwig anti-sway bar.

Today I installed my Hellwig anti-sway bar to the front of my 1993 Fleetwood class a.That with all the other improvements hope to get her to drive like a cadillac before the weather breaks here in Michigan.
