Yes, as long as the valve seal are good a little persuasion will move the Y connection. Our Y connection is centered on the opening when I put the 90degree elbow on.

Eleven years in to this, 2 years full timing and were still newbies learning all the time.

Thumbs up Liability insurance

I live in Canada but we travel a lot to the US. In Canada, most provinces have limits on liability claims to save court time and to avoid frivolous claims. For those reasons we carry liability insurance but not Zillions of dollars worth.
I realize that the situation in the US is different so what I am looking for is some sort of consensus on what would be a prudent amount of liability to carry on a class A DP. With the massive difference in the value of the Beaver Buck compared to the US dollar I can do the math to put your answers into my world.
Thanks in anticipation of your help

We carry $100,000/$300,000 but our State Farm agent was really pushing the $1,000,000 umbrella policy at our last visit. We declined.
Lots of greedy injury attorneys in this country.

Seat Repair

Decided to order new covers from Flexsteel to replace the awful Natures Alternative stuff that was peeling off. I'm very pleased with the results. Flexsteel was great to work with. $400 per cover in Ultra Leather and $40 per adjustable armrest. Not too bad compared to buying new or having them redone locally.
They even did the original "Astoria" embroidery at no extra cost!

Hi Jzack,
Sure looks very good!
When we bought our Astoria, it had the original ultra leather on chairs and sofa and dinette.
When we came to the dealer to collect the unit, he had changed all the ultraleather for brandnew genuine leather. New leather smells so good, he said.
And he did not charge me extra Buck. So I was and am very pleased with that dealer.
Enjoying your new chairs!

That is great. A lot better than buying new ones like we did.

Oh no my right rear brake light just died.

2008 Damon Astoria. Appears to be a sealed unit.

Only markings I see say IT-L4R SEA STI 00 DOT

Any idea on where to get a replacement?

On Amazon of course. After 11 years maybe it’s time to replace them all.

Hi Steve. An added plus about our Astorias is almost any truck stop in America will carry our tail lights, which is exactly what I did on our last trip. They are usually cheap though unless it is a good name brand like Grote.
Eventually I might order all new LEDs from a truck supply place like I-80. The largest Truck Stop in America. Check out their website sometime.

Good luck and safe travels!

Have you tried either the Cummins website or Freightliner website either which may be able to drill down for part number. Freightliner will ask for coach serial number which is above your head in the wall cabinet when you are in drivers seat.
If you find the P/N’’s both Cummins and F/l have offices in UK and Germany. Freight might be cheaper than from US
Good luck
