Hit a huge bump in a construction zone that loosened the lower curved section of the driver's outside mirror. Luckily it didn't fall out and with some cleaning and good 'ole indoor/outdoor double sided Gorilla tape, all is well. It was actually a pleasure to fix something without a hassle.

Now, if only the control board would come in that matches up the new 15K air conditioner to the system...it's been over two months now.

Replaced the coolant temp sensor and the gauge. And let me tell you about the coolant rush through a 3/4in hole

The, "I'll just get the sensor loose, then quickly swap them." technique did not go quite to plan.

But the new parts work great!

If your shades are made by AutoMotion,they will send you the manuals for the shades
I was lucky…. The two piece plastic assembly had a glue joint fail, so I used plastic weld cement to repair
Working so far, however I am going to order a spare spring assembly

Took a little over 2 hours, but my brother and I changed out the old shocks and steering stabilizer to bilsteins on the old motorhome last night.

Last repair on my coach I had Freightliner Las Vegas replace the airbags, and since it was at the shop I told them to recharge my air conditioning system. They done a good job.

That really sucks. Can you give more specifics on what "failed" means? For instance, wouldn't start, or put connecting rod through side of case . . . Just curious . . .

You’ll love the handling improvement with the Watts link.

Had to replace the turbo on my Cummins ISL, saved a lot doing myself and buying from a reman facility. Rather than from dealer. But dealer still cost $1200 for diag. and update Cummins software. Saved roughly $2500. Also in middle of replacing 28’ slide topper, making ourselves as the wife has the machines to do this. Another big savings.
Can save a lot of you can do yourself. Just need the motivation.

The mirror on my RV all of a sudden is vibrating a lot on the drivers side. Can those mirrors be replaced or do I have to buy the whole unit. It is a two piece mirror with the wide angle on the bottom and the big mirror on the top. Pretty standard on most diesel pushers in the early 2000 models.
