Finally got my new front tires installed, and finished up running the air line for the front air bags...installed on the front bumper end cap.
Also got most of the interior doors/ panels removed to begin painting inside.
Got the couch reupholstered and ready to reinstall when the painting is finished.
Getting closer to 'live in' condition.

Propane ran out so had to tear down camp to go find some.
Stopped at Pilot and got the propane $2.09 per gal. The MH behind me was a Alfa See Ya gold. what a beauty, one of the nicer ones I seen I sure like the lines. She had a shine also a plus.
Then drove to Sam's Club and got gas @ $1.97
Will check tire pressure before we go a real pain because of the Caps they have to come off before I can get to the stems. I filled the Air Bags all had different amounts of air.
Heading North Friday unfortunately. Then 6 months till time to head south again with lots of little trips planed.

It has been a long time and I am 76 years old, but I remember you can't run two belts on one of the pulleys. I believe it is the power steering pulley. It was designed for two belts, but if you use two, it will throw the belts every time. It came from the factory with two grooves but only one belt.

Well we unloaded her today, cleaned her, and made sure she was ready to roll to the Dealer on Thursday. For our first RV this Pace Arrow 37c has been an awesome machine.
She will serve the next owner for a long time to come !!

Got the first coat of paint (kills stain blocker) on the walls and ceiling. Only got pics of the masking and beginning of the trim work. Will take pics of everything primed before the color goes on.

Dropped the fuel tank on our '97 Class A Aerbus as there is a small fuel drip. Had to remove 50 gallons of gas...I've done funner things in my life.

Getting ready to do that on our 83 HR, need to replace the rubber fuel lines for the engine and generator, also check the wiring...the fuel gauge will occasionally drop to empty, then go back up to the correct level.
Just got a used transmission jack, so hopefully I can lower just the front of the tank to access the top area where the hoses go.
Did you get the drip fixed?

Removed the two left rear tires. Put the spare back in the basement. Let the air out of both tires and installed the long valve stems. Will replace the stems on the right rear at a later date.

The first coat of primer doesn't look too bad, much brighter inside now. Will post more pics when we get the color on and the curtains made. My wife is sewing them up now...bright colors!

Question 1998 national tradewind repair

getting stumped on getting water set up to use water tank, is the fill line the same as the line feeding the pump? Got to figure out that mess the PO left us with. Put in a multi Valve set up to hook things up to but what was labeled as things was not necessarily what it is. Need to get pump lines hooked up fill line figured out and that anyone know answer to that?
