I have corrosion around my valve stem on my rims, so I had to take them off the truck and have the tires removed and bring them to the guy to have my aluminum rims Powder Coated.Click image for larger version

I worked on the sink drain, i had to reroute the hose to the tank there was a slight lift in the hose and wouldn't drain. Fix one issue at a time. Sooner or later it will all be done. I really need to work on my solar from panels ot batteries.

Harry,
Now that you are mobile and close to final version, have you weighed the truck, truck & camper for information? I know my Ram weighs a bunch, 9400 lbs Ready to pull 5th wheel. Just curious.

Jim
