I replaced the fan clutch on the 454 today. Hint: the job is infinitely easier if you remove the fan from the clutch before removing the clutch from the water pump, this way you dont have to open up half the engine bay to get everything out. Also wear heavy gloves fan blades are SHARP

My DH replaced 2 of the running lights. Took care of a squeal from the furnace fan and installed a new radio.

I painted the handles on the basement compartments and the entrance door. They were aged and missing paint in several areas. They sure look nice now.

Later this summer I will be doing the other handles on the driver's side and the driver's side mirror. Then I am going to try to touch up some of the graphics. Most are ok, but a few need attention.

Anyone ever done anything with the graphics before?

Replaced both the inner and outer skylight with new Fleetwood parts. Changed the standard vent to a fantastic fan + cover.

Podivin,

Thanks for the information on painting the graphics. Looks like it is doable, just a bit of work.

I like the idea that he changed the colors a bit. Will have to think about that one when I start planning, I deoxidized mine and used Zep on it. Shines like crazy but the graphics just need some work. Will re-Zep when done.

Hung a roller shade over the door entrance today. Will probably only use it if the sun is really shining in through the passenger side but will be there in case we need it.

Bought paint for the heat registers. They are scratched and faded and will take them off, clean them up, sand them and get them painted in the next week here.

Lynne

Removed the hard shower doors to my Jayco Greyhawk 31SS. Replace them with an Extent-A-Shower bar and shower curtain. Gained 10" in width to make an impossibly small shower usable.

Today I replaced an engine oil cooler hose that had been leaking. Quite the adventure figuring how the quick-connect attaches the hose end next to the oil filter. Another challenge was trying to remove the hose from the hard line to the cooler. I ended up cutting the line and using compression fittings to complete the repair.

Sealed leaking windshield. Replaced water filter. Started pre-flight checks for cross country trek next month.

Thinking about removing the 100 pound original crt from the cockpit. Anybody ever done this? Can you make that space usable/asthetically pleasing

Coach Rock,

We removed our old TV with no issues. Man was that thing heavy. We have a new flat screen to put in there but have not done it yet. If you don't want the TV, just take the frame, add a piece of thin wood to the back of it and paint the thin wood. I've seen this on other people's repairs.

You could also hang a piece of material (attached with Velcro) and have access to the area.

Good luck!

Removed the step cover motor and shuttle and cleaned off the old lubricant. Put on new lubricant and reinstalled.

Cover is working like new.

The previous owner had installed a outside temp thermometer in my coach. The problem was, It was behind the drivers seat. I had to turn around in the seat while driving to see it. I had a nicer thermometer that I have had for several years. I installed the new one in the dash. I also installed a weather tight plug in the firewall, to run the wire through. Now I have three unused ports to run wires through if needed in the future.
