Found a storage facility a few weeks ago in Fort Mohave to leave MH as we travel back to Idaho Falls for the holidays with grandkids and their parents. Temperature in the minus numbers and snow on the ground, but being our first year in retirement I can smile knowing we are heading south in January. Found a great RV park in Laughlin KOA/AVI with golf course connected. Love this retirement...if I had known it would have been this fun I would have skipped working and just retired [emoticon]

Had both halves of the windshield replaced. The passenger one was cracked so the insurance covered most of that one. It didn't bother me, but the Bride had an issue with it! Since the I felt that the original driver side one would look different, I paid to have that one replaced as well. Glass $395 and installation $225.

We have maintained balance!

Contined my drivetrain replacement project. Here is a link to my most recent activities.

If you want to see the whole project, go to the first page of the photo album and follow it from the start to where I am at this point. Having completed my move from CA to OR I am now dividing my time between being in OR and working on my coach in Gilroy, CA.

Replaced my 12-year-old SHURflo Classic (2088-422) with a SHURflo Revolution (4008-101) which is much, much quieter and a bit more powerful than the Classic.

Today we started loading our coach for our Christmas and New Years annual trip. Las Vegas for Christmas and New Years celebration, then FMCA rally, and then caravan to Quartzite for seven days with friends.

It is around 70 degrees here in Southern California now, so it should be nice for traveling.

Heard on the news Florida had 32 degrees last night. WOW! Florida.

Cleaned a big lump of fluffy soft soot off the gas burner head in the fridge. It works on propane again!

I’ve never been very happy with the OE drawer slides in my coach. I really like the soft-closing slides being installed in new homes, so I decided it was time to upgrade my RV’s drawers.

Below is a photo of one of the areas where I plan to upgrade my drawer slides. This is in the bedroom, right above the water heater. This area is occupied by a washer/dryer on models ordered with that option. If you happen to notice that the water supply hose to the water heater us missing in this photo, you’re very observant. I removed it while the drawers were out, as I’ve been meaning to replace the cheap vinyl supply hose with a steel braided hose. If you look at the top center of each drawer opening, you’ll see the OE brass catches that prevent the drawers from opening while in transit. I plan on retaining these, even though I’m not sure they’ll still be needed.

This photo shows the OE 1x2 wooden supports for the OE drawer slides. Not only are they weak and flimsy, the replacement slides are longer with screw holes that are spaced further apart. This forced me to beef up the supports.

[image]


This photo shows the additional 1x2 support added. It is the pale piece of wood shown butted up against the existing support. This is where the help of my son came in handy, as he is much better at woodworking than me and he is much more nimble at getting into tight spaces! This photo only shows the left side, but rest assured we added wood to both sides.

[image]


I really liked the feel of the CenterLine Comfort Close Slides. They were $20 per pair. They are 75 lb slides which should be more than enough. They have a smooth self-closing design and require an extra tug to open, which may or may not eliminate the need for travel catches. But as I said earlier, I’m going to retain them to be on the safe side.

[image]


My son & I only installed one set of slides, to make sure they are exactly what I want. I really like them, so I will be buying a set for every drawer I have, with the exception of a couple of very small drawers. My son is also going to reinforce the bottoms of my largest drawers, as they flex to easily, which could result in them caving in. Thank God for good sons who love doing this sort of thing!

Nice! The runners for my sock etc drawers by the bed are falling off and i would love to replace them with something like this but since they are less than a foot wide and that is about all the room there is between the bed and the wall I need a 6 year old carpenter with very long arms. Or at least one about that size.

The dealer finally replaced the graphics on all four sides of our new (to us) 2002 Itasca Sunrise 32V. She looks almost brand new, thinking of going down to trade her in for a newer, longer coach. (Wife just punched me in the arm, she loves the floor plan). Used to have boats, got 2 footitis with them too. Well, happy camping and see you all on the road.
