Today I finished installing a second set of Golf cart batteries.

Drilled a hole to pin a sliding TV shelf to keep it from sliding out during travel which will prevent the slide from extending and ripping the trim off.

After 2 years I finally figured all the tv connections out, now I can use the ship crank up antenna.

Measured the toilet room and figured out I can't have one of the higher toilets, that made me sad.

Tim,
Yes you can still use the ATF, use 10 or 12 drops , but just remember that the excess will come blowing out the exhaust. I usually wrap a rag up by the exhaust. Make sure that you have 90psi at the bar, a little over won't hurt it. Sometimes if you have under 90psi, the tool won't start correctly. Hope this helps you.
The repairs are looking good Tim, a little more sanding, and maybe a little more fill, and noone will ever know it was damaged.
Frank

The fourth shock came during dinner, so I installed it so I have a complete new set of Monroe shock absorbers on the Montara.

My new flag pole came and it came damaged so back it went how depressing,,, LOL It sure looks better built than the one I bought in Quartzsite last winter, Built in China or not.
The Sand paper for the new toy (Bar sander) is only available on line @ HF that I can find anyway.
I will keep a rag wrapped around the exhaust area.
Thanks again for the heads up Frank,

Tim
, I hope you finished dinner, Personally I would have excused myself from the dinner table and went out and installed it. Have you taken it out for a ride too see the improved ride? We found a huge difference when we installed Bilstiens on ours.

Yes, I did finish dinner and installed the shock in the dark. I took a test drive today and the ride quality was sharply improved. While my unit only has 28k miles on it, 22 years of age caught up with it. I chose the Monroe RV shocks over the Bilstiens based on others' report of stiffness of ride on the Biltstiens.

Cool ours had around 46,000 miles and is a 82 , 34 years old and I am pretty sure they were original shock's . All I can say it is a better ride by 100% I also had Airlifts installed in the coil springs which has also helped.

I considered the rear shock version with helper springs, but decided against them because the rig is small and not taxing the rear suspension.

Repaired the screen door latch, the spring broke, installed a different type of spring and it works like it is supposed to again.

thinking of winterizing my coach

I am a newbe and need help on winterizing coach any input would be great.I have only used my coach once this year .It was my first trip in the coach that I purchased the end of last year. I took a trip to Wisconsin middle of June and July 3rd I fell from latter while painting trim on house and broke my heel so unable to do any thing. So I guess I should winterize the coach early is there steps to do first?
