Moving on to the next project, changing the curtains for the front window. Who would have thought that they cost 400 DOLLARS. Sooooo
She is making them out of shower curtains for the cost of 30 dollars.

Our first trip will be the last week of May. She gets out of school on May 16th (teacher)

I should have the Damon road ready. I put new tires on the back. The old tire size from the factory was 7.50R 16 D...Very hard to get and would need to order. Then if I had a problem on the road I would be stuck. So the replacement size is 235x85x16E and everyplace has that size.....Problem, the 7.50R are 8 inches and the 235s are 9.3 inches. So the kiss at the bottom of the tire. I could either order the 7.50R and hope I never have a problem or order the 235s that I can get from anyplace. I ordered the 235s

TOO solve the kiss problem I am putting on a two inch spacer that will give me a wider track in the rear and solve the kiss problem.

That's great you got your tires sorted :-)

I tried out all the systems and had the coach in the rv shop and chassis/engine for a full check out.

Next on my list is I have one more seam on the roof that needs to be caulked and then I will start on the windows. Grease, change oil, service Genny, After that is wash and wax shampoo the rugs inside (she wants wood floors) that will come latter after she goes back to teaching in the fall.

By then I will be ready for a trip

I did not remove the box when I put the flat screen up I put a plywood backing over the top 3/4 of the box on the inside and mounted the TV over the front of the box. That left me 3 inches to put the DVD player under the TV inside the box.
