Tim,
You seem to be always polishing or waxing something. You are supposed to be staying off that foot. Sounds like you are getting close on the repair on the back of the PA.

Amen to that! I would love one the rigs that cost more than my house but it not going to happen in this lifetime BUT I can still get a taste of the RV life and have a older but well built one. I am also currently upgrading all the lights to LED. All I have left on the outside is the taillights but I am going to reconfigure them. I don't like the fact that there is only one tail light one each side so I will be making the reverse light a tail light also and am probably going to add some LED flood lights under the bumper for reverse lights. I will also be changing the 3rd brake light to a LED version of some sort. I want to add a flasher to the 3rd brake light that will give it 3 rapid flashes then three slower then full on to better catch the attention of people behind me. I am also swapping out the patio light and the light by the dump valve area on the outside with LED versions of the same thing that is already there. I have tried to post some pictures but for some reason it's not working.

I replaced my Tecma control assembly on my commode because it was flushing repeatedly all by itself. Thetford said this was the problem. Ordered on eBay. Pretty simple install but a very annoying issue.

I replaced my top AC unit with a Coleman Mach 8 in black. Looks sharp, is 15000btu's (old one was 12000), and install wasn't too bad. Got it from:
Coleman MACH 8 AC Unit

ATTEMPTED to fix a leak that I can't get to. Failed.

After two weeks of wrestling with this thing, I finally got the Banks Power Pack installed.
Not a fan of Banks customer service or tech support. Initially I was told even though my wheelbase is listed as 200", I would not require the 33" extension pipe because my exhaust exits in front of the drive axle. Wrong. Waited 4 days for the extremely overpriced 33" extension to arrive. Still not right. They say the extension pipe is designed for a 178"-208" wheelbase. The only way I could have made it work is if I only had 1/4"-3/8" overlap for the slip-fit pipes. No way I was going to assemble it like that and expect it to stay together. I had to source a piece of 3" aluminized pipe, which is all I could find locally. Ended up using about a 7" long piece of it in the system.
Got the bulk of the ram air intake installed today. The old air filter looked like it may have been the original! The new airbox cover they provide has horrible fitment. Getting all four corner screws in place was an ordeal. I should have just left the factory cover in place. I didn't bother installing the "ram air" scoop. I may at some point but passed on it now.
She runs better now, but certainly doesn't live up to the hype. Not sure if the slight improvement is due to the headers/exhaust system, or because I also replaced the air filter, plugs, plug wires, and O2 sensor. She is running a little off now. Seems like it's low on power, then BAM! the RPMs jump and she takes off, and the pedal position hasn't changed. It got better after I installed the intake system today. Maybe a few more short drives to get the fuel trims reset?

All I can say about the install is make sure you have two or three people to get it done. I did 90% of mine on my own and it was a complete PIA!
