I purchased the replacement lights at the local Napa Autoparts store. They also had the replacement LED one.

I just replaced the kitchen faucet in my rig. For the last year, the brushed nickel finished began to look crappy & then started to peel. It finally started leaking around the base.
I replaced it with a Delta Faucet from Home Depot. It's much more robust & feels like a quality piece over the junk Thor installed.
While completing the project, I noticed the fake "wall" at the back of the cabinet under the sink is able to be moved back a few inches, therefore giving a little more space in the cabinet. Only 2 screws to remove/reinstall!

I had my 2011 40kt weighed recently and the tire expert said I should be running the back tires at 90psi and the forward tures at 110psi, hooe this helps.

Wow...thats quite a spread...I put 112 in all of them in April and dont mess with them anymore...figuring on loosing about 1.5 lbs per month. The coach absolutely drives like a dream...truth be known...100 PSI is perfect...I will never wear my tires out with mileage anyway...

Were the fitting sizes the same? I want to replace all our faucets but afraid the connections were a different size. The bathroom sink's faucet belongs in a childs doll house.

Do you have a before and after photo?

I center mine at 110psi each and my coach drive like a dream. I'm running Double Coin Tires (max 120 cold) and now have ~27K miles on these tires and just got back from a 2400 mile round trip to Daytona (Bike Week ) with absolutely no problems. Tires are wearing absolutely dead even on all the treads. I'm very, very, very happy with these tires and will go back with them. Next year they will be 6 years old and time to replace even though they look great.
I use the TST monitoring system and notice that depending which direction the sun is facing on the rig makes a difference how much pressure is in the tires. But 110psi works for me.

My O6 Astoria 3595 has 235x80rx22.5 Mich XRV on all wheels. When I weighed the coach I was close to maximum weight for front tires.
What model does Dsbear have and Baldbird.06 What are the tire sizes listed above the driver chair? There was a recall on Astoria Pacific 06 that dealt with under spec tires or wheels but I could not find out the details. My coach is not a pacific model so was not affected? Talked to Thor/Damon and they said freightliner would have dealt with it. Freightliner says there is nothing on my coach. A question I have is would a larger tire fit on the front of my coach?
