Pulled apart three Fantastic fans to replace sensors. Got tired of not trusting them to close automatically. Honestly this is not a rocket science job, but climbing up on the roof at my age IS a big job.

New helper airbags installed today. Wow, what a difference in the ride! Wish I had done it 8 years ago. Also had a new bump seal insert put into the windshield. Looks great again. Wash and wax tomorrow.
Last week was gen set repair. New brushes, oil press switch, board and voltage regulator. Kinda carpet bombed the problem, but she's up and running perrrrfect.

Does anyone know if there is an Aluminum wheel made for the 19.5" P-32 chassis?

went to start up the camper the other day after sitting for the past winter well after charging the battery, draining the old gas, replacing the fuel filter, and changing the oil/oil filter. Hit the ignition switch and she spun over but didnt catch. long story short after cleaning all the distributor connections (inside and out) and replacing the ignition module which tested bad at the local parts storeshe fired up and ran nice and smooth. tommorrow the fan belts.

Well, another day, and more prep. Did the wash/wax thing today. I keep thinking I'm going to find a reliable helper, or even someone to do it but again I find myself during the midnight hours doing it myself.
Also re-plumbed the toilet after putting a kit in it.
Had a marker light break, so replaced that as well.
Tomorrow morning will be systems check, then on the road.

Well finally decided to 'git'er done' and did it. The unit is sporting brand spankin new air bags up front. Boy would I love to have uncensored access to the guys who dreamt up that idea.

Dave et al,
The front two in my unit were blown to smithereens when I hit a bad hole dug across the highway just outside of Lloydminster Alberta. Installing them was a tad of a problem even though we used a vacuum pump to suck them as flat as we could get them. Getting the old ones out was fun because the instructions for removal didn't take into account the bags would in tatters. Trying to cut the remnants up with the tools we had at our disposal was fun. Needles to say the least we rewrote the "Longshoreman's Profanity Gazette" a couple two-three times during the endeavour. Oh did I mention it decided to pour with rain about half way into the job.

Boy I remember those days doing repairs on the road. Can't do it now thank goodness! Lots of air was polluted with my remarks while repairing.

I always thought the curse words were required to give one the extra strength needed to complete the job
