Tonight, we backed her up to the garage to unload her and get her winterized after our trip to Rockport,TX for a week with some RVmutants.....She ran great...
Maybe for Christmas... I can sweet talk hubby into putting a new heater thermostat in!
( and fix the step motor! I think I gave him enough bacon on this trip to warrant a new step motor!)

Repaired the speed sensor on our transmission, finished the install of our new cruise control. Then took it out on a test drive and fine tuned the calibration adjustments. Now our So-Cal trip (850 miles round trip) should be much more enjoyable.

Finally finished up pulling all my side hatches and various lights and other gizmos, cleaned everything up and resealed so it looks 150% better than new. In the process replaced two vents and two exterior lights that were faded and they look great!

Went up North to pick up Father in law and bring him down to the cities for a funeral and Thanksgiving. Stopped at our S&B on the way to his daughters house and asked him to make us a new cup holder/shelve for on our Dog House. He said no problem I can't wait he said he'll have it ready for Christmas.
498 miles R/T 27 MPG. in the toad. Wish I got that in the MH

Fixed the new CCTV monitor to the dash, went for a drive to fill up the propane and give the mechanicals a run, if this rain stops I might attempt to install the first couple of cameras tomorrow.

Put it on the market with a local consignment dealer. Hope it's gone before Christmas.

Gracie, is now safely stored at a friends farm so she will be out of the way of the outdoor Christmas Lights. She will return early in the new year and we will then see if the weather permits a sneak trip down south.

Fixed the original Sharp microwave/convection oven in our Rockwood. A $8.00 diode from Radio Shack and a $5.00 cap from a local electronic surplus store. Had to as I did not find new one that fit the old hole.

Today we went to HOLT CAT in Longview, TX and got a hydraulic leak fixed under the front steps that has been a real pain trying to find a company that would fix it. Made a appointment / arrived at 8:00am today / fixed in 2 hrs. while we waited. $117.87 SWEET!

Changed the coolant, the air-filter, both transmission filters and drained/refilled it with TES 295. She should be good for the winter. Next will be fuel filters and this spring she's due for oil changes for the engine and the generator.


Maintenance is an ongoing process, however, she's been in the family since new and has never let anyone down.
