Don't know why some pics are sideways...new cell phone????
Cell phones mark the top or bottom of the picture (not sure which). If you hold the phone upright all of the time the pictures will be oriented correctly. If not you can open them in a photo program and turn them to the correct orientation before up loading them.

Lubed the chassis.

Changed the oil and filter in the generator.

Flushed the fresh water tank

Flushed the grey and black tanks.

Changed out the brake fluid in the master cylinder.

Serviced all the tires.

Repaired one of the awning rails.

Fixed two leaks under the faucets at the kitchen sink.

Washed the motorhome.

Cleaned out the interior.

Fixed the hood latches.

Washed all the linens.

Replaced the house battery with a new deep cycle battery.

The last oil change, air filter change was like, 200 miles ago so, I wont bother with that. Plus, the fuel filter is fairly new too.

I can't think of anything else that needs to be done right now. The old RV is ready to go.

What did you do to your old RV today?
did u check the vacum sys. lines for cracks and leeks

We changed the fabric on our 19 ft long Dometic 9100 awning. Dw and I invited 5 couples to help (hoping at least 2 would show up, all 5 showed) and then have dinner with us. I must say that changing that material was very easy. We followed the Dometic instructions and the Youtube video and got the job done in about 2 hours. Any slight problem was soon solved by one of the six of us.
I worried about this install, but I must say it was very easy and Wow did this improve the looks on our Motor Home.

Made an appointment for next week to flush all the fluids and replace all the belts and hoses. At ten years it's time.

Replaced Pleated Day/Night Shades With Roller Shades

We replaced the pleated day/night shades with roller shades that we bought from Blind Chalet. Fantastic products!

My day today

Removed the old heavy front TV and replaced with a flat screen. Took down the plastic frame and made a new one from wood. Lubed all the compartment locks. Installed new Pathway 2 dish and 2 receivers.

Yesterday I went after the wiring behind the rear cap, replaced broken retainers and prepped for my additional rear lighting. Today I worked on the refinishing of the dinette table, almost done, and cleaned the windshield and mirrors with RainX.

Today I signed up for this forum. Trying to find out how much oil to buy for my new to me motorhome. My handyman is giving it the once over and a lot more things are working.

scottteng,
A little more info would be helpful. Like what year MH and which engine is it and I am sure that someone on here can give you the information that you seek.

I removed the two right rear wheels. Bled the air out and broke the rims loose. Installed the long valve stems and aired up the tires and reinstalled the tires. One hour and fifty minutes. Not bad for a 76 year old guy.
