didn't get to my projects the other day so, today I did the plugs, wires, cap and rotor and the front sway bar bushings. What a difference with a good alignment, not fighting to stay on the road anymore

Just received my Dexter E-Z Flex today with bronze busings and wet bolts. Will be installing them in the next couple weeks. When I have it apart it is time to pack the wheel bearings and rotate the tires also.

Raised the dash and fixed the power side mirrors, replaced the broken fan bypass switch and installed a transmission temperature gauge. Running out of mechanical things to do to the old RV.

We are getting our 83 HR Alumalite ready for interior painting and new fabrics on the couch/bed, etc. We will be painting the fake wood grain a new white, with light grey accents. Also white / grey pattern on the fabrics. Hope to have more pics to show progress soon.
The last pic shows the outside work yesterday....removing front airbags and getting ready to install new ones from Firestone. Thankfully there are several threads on this website to help with the install. When it quits raining / snowing I will get back out there and finish the job. Also have the hotshot compressor / tank / adjustment gauge to install on the dash to control air pressure from the cab. Thanks for looking!

I got my vent cushions in today. So far I can only get one of them to fit into the bathroom vent with a lot of struggling with it and the other vent above my bed is too shallow for it to fit. I finally just took the foam out of the removable fleece/foil backed cover and put the bare foam into the opening which seems to have enough friction to make it fit in the bedroom vent. I'm hoping these things make a difference in heating and cooling. Next thing I'm looking into is getting a roll of foil backed insulation for the whole windshield area. and perhaps for one of the other windows I really don't use.

installed 1" armor flex foam inside the doghouse, wow, what a difference. Next I'm going to insulate up under the dash, was thinking of using the 2" denim insulation from HD. Any thought about that?

Imagine that

Break in weather today. Early rise and off to storage to retrieve the "beast". Brought her home and procceeded to spring clean. vacuumed, dusted, put away project "toys". Washed exterior and found out my roof is beige (with black patches). Who'd a thunk? For 22y.o. she sure still sparkles. Wanted to Rejex. Walmart web said they have, but, did'nt. Will wax instead tomorrow. Much re-newed excitement. Aint spring grand?

I live in MI and I basically check to make sure no critters have invaded but I also put some insulation in the cupboards. That bubble wrap stuff with what looks like aluminum foil on both sides. It's thin and they sell it in sheets to put in the windows.

Works great in the cupboards. Eagerly awaiting Spring so we can get her out, wash her up, get the Mobile guy over to replace the TV and radio and then camp.

Today should be a fun day. First finish adjusting the rear brakes, Pull multiple antenna cables for the various equipment (stereo, Flat screens, CB, Ham radios) ans then work on the header gaskets.

Had a change of plans yesterday, Fixed the dash electrical issue and now everything is working again. 2 blown fuses caused by a wire rubbing on the cooling fan relay circuit. Changed out the front park lights out with NOS clear lenses and LED bulbs.
